ELF (e.l.f.) CHRISTIAN SIRIANO EYESHADOW PALETTE – Review
This is one item from a recent Elf.com order and it’s such a stand out piece of makeup that I have to make a little review for it. Granted, I have only used it twice but the colors are absolutely ridiculous and it’s unlike any Elf palette you’ve ever seen before. Christian Siriano delivered.
As described on elf’s website:
“Like a bouquet of flowers, this palette is a mix of bold and subtle colors with different textures. Have fun experimenting and creating your own style!
– Christian Siriano”
These are both images directly from elf’s webpage because I didn’t feel like my photos could do the palette’s striking beauty and the richness of the color. I was able to swatch it on some watercolor paper (which is my new thing) and it feels true to how the colors look.
I must say that this is hands down the highest quality palette that I’ve ever purchased from elf. With that said, I love Elf and it’s one of only 2 drugstore brands that I buy regularly (the other being nyx). If you buy one palette this year, make it this one right here. It sells for $12 and it looks like a $60 eyeshadow palette on your lids. The brush included is wonderful and unquestionably gives off a high end vibe and reminds me of a mini brush you would find in an Urban Decay palette. In fact, it’s kind of like a mini version of the brush that comes in the Naked palettes. The palette comes with 6 eye shadows (2 for highlighting/base and 4 bold jewel toned colors) and a highlighter that can be used for your eyes or anywhere on your face.
The only thing I am bummed about is that the colors don’t seem to be named. I couldn’t find color names on the box or anywhere on the actual palette. Maybe we should make up color names for the palette ourselves. I don’t know.
Ok. I am ready to hear your suggestions on how to name these colors!
There will certainly be some more reviews or unboxing posts with some of my newest elf products and I have more on the way but I felt that this palette was worth jumping the gun on because these types of items sell out quickly and it’s an amazing palette that you won’t regret buying!
