Happy Hump Day loves! Lookie what I purchased! ELF Cosmetics new Chromatic Eyeshadow Palette ($12 for 0.25 oz.) in Bird of Paradise and Posh Peacock. How beautiful are they?! Perfect springtime palettes, wouldn’t you say? This is my first ever test run with ELF Eyeshadows, and I’m loving the two.
This artist-inspired, chromatic eyeshadow palette features seven color-coordinated, luxe eyeshadows in finishes from matte to metal. The pigment-rich formula blends effortlessly with lasting color. The mirrored chromatic eyeshadow palette includes a dual-ended eyeshadow and crease brush for easy application. Enriched with Vitamin E, Meadowfoam Oil, and Jojoba Oil to nourish the skin.
Posh Peacock has the inspired tones of a peacock feather, ranging in gorgeous shades of light to deep greens, taupe, and a champagne highlighter base.
Bird of Paradise has the unique jewel toned shades of the exotic flower, ranging in hues of oranges, purples, and white gold highlighter base.
The Palette Breakdown:
In case you were wondering, there are 3 metallics and 4 mattes in each of the palettes.
I don’t consider the metallics actually metallic. That type of finish has more of a glittery foiled look in my opinion. These are more pearlized with a shimmery finish. The dual ended brush works well. It was the only one I used besides a liner brush to build my eye looks. Everything blended out perfectly. Simple yet effective. That’s the way I like it.
The “metallic” eyeshadows have a much softer, velvety texture than the mattes. The mattes have a baked texture with a silky smooth feel to them.
Overall, the pigmentation of the seven shades were very nice. The pearlized base highlighter shades (white gold, champagne) either need a primer or a bit of water on the brush to enhance the vibrancy. They came off a little sheer when nothing was applied to them.
The formulation is lightweight, blendable, buildable, comfortable to wear, applies evenly and easily, does not crease or run, and creates versatile looks for day and night time wear.
From a scale of zero to ten. How did I do? I’ll give myself a 10. Lol. Why not?

After this positive experience I think I’ll be trying a few more eyeshadows from ELF.
