I have the Spring 2013 Special Edition palette in the white case (I think it may be the same as the regular 100 marble palette). I chose this because it has more peachy-pink colors than the 144 neutral/bright palette contained, and I think I have every eyeshadow color I'll ever need now. :)
You do need a primer, but it lasts really well with the primer, and the color payoff is decent. The matte sometimes need layering, but I don't mind that. All the ELF palettes have amazing color selection!
Shimmery colours are much better than matte ones in it.I quite like the pallette for trying out different looks.Dont be too harsh with sth this cheap,just have fun with it!
E.L.F was having 50% off of this product plus they had a $5 off coupon, which made this product only FIVE dollars. I had to get it! I don't use it much, but it's good to have laying around, especially for the brighter colors. I'm already thinking of trying out a pink look for Valentine's day, and a green look for St. Patty's day! Some colors are great, while others can be chalky. Some shades are shimmer, matte, satin, or silky, I love the different ranges. You get what you pay for. My suggestion is to wait until it's on sale & get it. I certainly do not use it everyday but I love knowing I have it. It's a little bulky, but decent packaging.
Pretty good for something so cheap. I got this on Black Friday 2011 and I still have it now (2013), so it does last for a long time, but it depends how much often it is used. There are 100 colors, ranging from the rainbow. There are nice neutral colors and wild greens, purples, pinks, and everything.This isn't the best eyeshadow palette, but good enough for everyday use.
I don't really use eyeshadow, I tend to stay away since it's a bit too must makeup for an everyday look, but it was too much of a bargain to pass up. I use if for night looks, special occasions, and holiday/party looks.
The brushes were terrible, flimsy and broke apart after a couple uses, but it is an ELF product so I'm not that surprised. The colors were nice and it blends pretty easily.
However, most of the eyeshadow are glittered and not as matted as I thought it would be. I like shimmer, but not all the time. Some colors looked different when it was applied on the eyelid, either too dark or too light.
Overall, pretty good for the price, would buy again if I ever run out.
LOVE the shadows! The pigmentation and lasting ability is amazing. Except for the black, which I found to have quite poor color payoff.
Not a fan of the packaging at all, though. The cover broke off quickly, which saddened me. Also the sponge tip applicators are very rough, but, for the price it's to be expected.
Overall an amazing product, though. I think the shadows are so great some of them could could even give my high-end ones a run for their money.
I have this in the original 100 eyeshadow palette and the spring (white packaging) palette. The spring palette is now available in their original black packaging, and is now called the "marble palette." The quality of the palette is actually pretty good for the price, but the packaging is kind of delicate and plastic, so it can break easily.
So basically, you get 100 different colors in a convenient palette. Some of them show up better than others. If you use a primer, this shouldn't be an issue and I have not had a problem with creasing with any of the colors. They all come in a variety of finishes: matte, shimmer, and satin. The satin ones show up the best. The lighter colors need to be worked with a bit so they can show up. Either use a primer and pack it on, or dip your brush in some water (not too much!) and apply it wet. Some of the colors and great, and some are not that good, but with 100 colors, you can mix and match and play with any of it. This is great for beginners or people who are trying to see what color works with their skin tone or eye color because there is so much variety.
The color sets are broken down into columns, with 10 shades in each column.
1st column: Peaches, taupes, whites
2nd column: Yellows, browns
3rd column: Greens
4th column: Blues, purples
5th column: Pinks, reds
6th column: Plums, browns
7th column: Browns, pinks, corals
8th column: Taupes, browns
9th column: Browns
10th column: Whites, silvers, grays, blacks
For the spring (marble) palette, the colors are brighter and have more pastel colors. It also has 11 different shades that are marbled, meaning they have two colors mixed. The finishes are satin, matte, and shimmer.
1st column: Whites, beiges, peaches
2nd column: Taupes, browns
3rd column: Browns
4th column: Purples, pinks
5th column: Yellows, oranges, corals
6th column: Greens
7th column: Pinks
8th column: Purples
9th column: Blues
10th column: Whites, silvers, blacks.
It also comes with a small mirror and two sponge applicators.
This is a great products for its price. only 10 dollars for 100 colors? I don't know about you but thats great. I was walking through target and I walked past this. At first i told myself, "DONT GRAB IT! You dont need it!" But i couldnt resist!!
Now E.L.F has some really good products and then of course there are some duds. This isn't the best eyeshadow palette of course, but this is great for everyday use. Most of the colors are pretty and vibrant. I grabed the "Marble" palette. Its the one with a couple of baked-looking shadows.The baked ones (dont know if they are baked, it doesn't say) are very nice. There are satin, shimmery, and matte shades too.
Some colors don't show up will without a primer.If you don't have a primer, it will take a little more work to get the color to show up which is inconveniant. I used to use these very very cheap The Color Workshop eyeshadows for everyday wear but it took soo much work to pack on the color and blend, that it added 15 minutes to my morning routine )with a primer). ELF on the other hand won't do that. They are easy to blend, they can go a long way with a base or primer. If your looking for some low cost, but good quality shadows, I recommend the ELF 100 palette,
Pretty good! I bought this for my older sister and she loves it! Good Job elf! :D
Perfection! I'm a total palette junkie. The packaging is perfect. It's not bulky at all. It's sleek and everything. The e/s pans are big, the pigmentation is perfect. Not very many duplicates. The spring version of this palette is very nice too! I'm an e.l.f junkie.
I recommend (-:
I got the white framed version this spring at Target. This product is a lot of fun! If you use a damp makeup brush to apply, the pigment really pops and lasts. Also, use a primer and a base, and you can get a lot of amazing color out of this. Note: it is 100 colors for $10! Of course it is not comparable to MAC or UD. There are a few duds. Be realistic, people. It's got a lot of awesomeness for $10. If you like or want to learn more about playing with color, it's worth it!
