{Review} e.l.f. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette

February 6, 2011

The e.l.f. Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette contains 32 eyeshadows and packs a surprising amount of color. I expected the eyeshadows to be chalky with a lack of pigmentation, but to my surprise the shadows have pretty good color pay off. I got this palette as a gift for being a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding. Such a cute gift idea!

There is a good mix of both matte and shimmer eyeshadows, as well as neutrals and pops of color. The teal is my personal favorite and is the brightest and most pigmented shadow of the bunch. It would even make a great dupe for MAC Eyeshadow in Electric Eel. 
I wouldn’t necessarily say these eyeshadows are the best, but they are still pretty decent, especially at a price point of $5. Not a bad deal at all. The one downside is that the eyeshadows don’t have the greatest lasting power, but I found they did stay on all day if I applied a good primer underneath. Urban Decay Primer Potion and MAC Paint Pot in Painterly have been working pretty well for me and help to keep the eyeshadows lasting all day.
This would be a great palette for any makeup beginner or for someone who doesn’t normally wear a lot of bright or colorful eyeshadows, but wants to experiment a little. It also makes a great palette to travel with; a variety of colors at your finger tips, but only $5. It isn’t a catastrophe if the palette breaks or gets lost. A much better choice in traveling as opposed to taking my MAC palettes. Sadly the palettes are rather delicate and break easily. So this may just be my new traveling buddy in my makeup bag.
The palette does come with a double ended sponge applicator, but I threw it out since I find them virtually useless. I always prefer using brushes to apply my eyeshadows. 
Now onto the swatches…

The Endless Eyes Pro Mini Eyeshadow Palette can be purchased on the e.l.f. Website for only $5, but I would act fast as it is a limited edition product and may not be available for long.
