I hope you've had a fabulous weekend! I want to thank you all for staying with me through my uni work and everything. Luckily enough I sat my last exam on Friday so now only have three more hand ins before I hopefully graduate! I should now be back to blogging properly as I have a little bit of time on my hands which will give me something else to think about than my uni work.
So I wanted to do a little review on something that I got my hands on just before Christmas, which is ELF's 100pc Marble Eyeshadow palette.
Personally whenever I get hold of ELF products I am usually blown away by the quality of their items considering their prices. I am a huge fan of theirs and love the range of products, normally I am wary of buying products online that I cannot see/test in front of me, however I don't feel like this when buying from ELF. Luckily enough if I have ever had a problem with any of their products their customer service are great and always solve it for me.
I own quite a few of their eyeshadow palettes and couldn't wait to try this monstrous palette out, this 100 piece set has every colour from your everyday neutrals to your bright and vibrant blues and greens - so obviously this is a big plus from me!
Now sometimes you wonder with a big palette like this whether the quality lives up to the quantity and I can honestly say it does. I wasn't sure how pigmented these would be, but I did find some of the shades were highly pigmented, and surpassed my expectations. As you expect some of the lighter shades aren't the best in terms of pigmentation however they still offer a lovely colour especially for highlighting the eyes and great base shades.
I wasn't sure with this palette how many of the shades would actually be used but I can see this being a lot of fun, and is a great way to experiment. This palette offers great diversity for any type of look from everyday neutrals to fun and vibrant night looks. I love the addition of the marble shades within the palette, they look great and apply easily.
In terms of quality and lasting power, once again my estimations were surpassed. I tried these on and can easily last all day without creasing or wearing off. However I did apply a primer before hand but still the proof is in the pudding as I do find with some brands even with primer it doesn't completely help the staying power of eyeshadows and can cause creasing in the lid.
I do really like this palette, and after hearing great reviews about the Coastal Scents I did set my heart on that. However since being sent this palette I have fallen in love with it and can see it being a palette used everyday for uni or days out.
My only problem with this is that I wish it was easier to travel with because I would take it on holiday with me, however that can be expected considering it is a 100 piece palette.
As always ELF have delivered a great product that I love and what's better is that it is currently on offer for £7.50 instead of £15 which can be found here.
Are you a fan of ELF? If so have you tried this? If not what are your favourite items from them?
Lastly, I don't normally like doing stuff like this but for my production project a friend and I are launching a new magazine titled 'Insider' which is about fashion, beauty and entertainment gossip. If you could check out the Facebook and Twitter page that would be fab and maybe give them a like or follow I'd be greatly appreciative. If you do want to get involved as we are interested in getting some of you lovely lot to write for us let me know.
