ELF Studio 32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette in Warm

I have been wanting to get this palette for a long time and finally here it is! I was extremely excited when I saw this and could not wait to try it. This palette has 32 warm colors which I really love. There are peach-y, browns, pinks, purple-y, silver, grey, and black shades and to me is all you need to create many combinations.  

list of ingredients

I really love how they presented the product because it looks so neat and organized. Although the packaging is a bit flimsy and could break if you drop it. It's also a little too difficult to open. I actually broke my nail today opening the palette :(.

It only comes with one applicator and I don't think it's enough for all the many colors on this palette. I won't be using the applicator often but it comes in handy when you're travelling. And some users may want to use them and yet it only comes with one tiny sponge applicator. The mirror size is good enough and very useful especially when you're on the road.

love the palette! very presentable!

very organized

amazing variety of warm shades

The colors are really pretty! I'm just so excited to use them probably tomorrow. It has matte, shimmer, and glitter shadows and perfect for any look you want to wear. I love smokey eye so much and I can see myself using this palette more often! Some of the shades are more pigmented than the others and some are more powdery than the others. These shadow will show up better with a sticky base and will take care of the excess powder during the application. However, it should look beautiful without the base as well but be careful with fall outs. I love how the shadows are very fine so it's easy to blend and build up if you want to intensify the color. The staying power I bet is going to be remarkable because removing the swatches on my skin with a wet tissue was a challenge. No kidding! The darkest shades such as the blacks, grays, and browns can be used as an eyeliner or as outer corner color, and the lighter shadows are great for highlights. See the swatches below on their proper order (row):

This palette is worth the cost if you ask me. I would grab this when travelling and I can create all the looks I want :). The shades are all very pretty but my favorites are the shimmer shadows which look absolutely divine! If you check out the swatches you'll see that some of the shimmer shadows really stand out :). 

Since the fashion color of 2012 is Tangerine Tango, warms, neutrals, and bronzed eyes are definitely in. It's the best time to score that red and tangerine lips or bronzed eye with nude or glossy lips! :) 

My verdict: 4.5 STARS!!! If not for the over powdery shadows I would have given this a 5. And yes I recommend this palette to any makeup junkie :D. It's a must have eyeshadow palette for a reasonable price.
