E.l.f Natural Eyeshadow Palette (Swatches)

This blog post will be short and sweet. My post on e.l.f’s 32 palette seemed to go down well so I decided to do a similar post for their Natural Palette.

So I tested the palette out yesterday. Here are some photos, swatches and my thoughts…

 

 

 

My initial thoughts are that some of these shadows are chalkier than those in the 32 Palette. The first shade is particular. That being said, they are quite pigmented. It’s not necessary to keep dipping the brush in and applying layers, one will do it. The shadows aren’t very tightly packed so a brush will pick up an awful lot of product.

If you were thinking of buying this I would recommend that you use an eye base to hold these shadows on. I would also avoid applying  the shadows with any kind of fluffy brush, they will end up all over you face. I applied a NYX jumbo pencil as a base and then applied the lid shade with my finger. The colour goes on thick. I then used a dense brush to pack on colour into my crease. I gently blended the edges out with the side of a cotton bud. The end result was very pretty. I will post some photos over the weekend.

The colours are gorgeous, and useful. The golds from the bottom row are particularly pretty and the last brown is very pigmented and creamy. The third shade reminds me of MAC sable (colour wise).

I should also point out that all of the shadows are shimmery, there are no mattes. I’m happy enough with that but not everyone will.

All in all, I like it. It’s pretty. Bear in mind that you will need an eye base and/or fixative spray and be prepared for a little crumbling! This palette won’t be for everyone.

Have a look at the 32 Palette swatches if you missed them.

What do you think?

    I have the other set, the one with the sparkly black and it’s amazing!!! But I agree, some colors have fall out but still, for the price and the pigmentation? Amazing!

    This looks really lovely! I got the Dashing Lassie palette from MAC’s a Tartan Tale collection and this is almost exactly the same as it – definitely an inexpensive alternitive!

    The swatches look nice. I’m getting a free palette with a delivery I ordered, not sure if it’s this one or the other but I don’t mind. They’re handy wee things, pretty colours and small enough to carry around. I like all things shimmery and glittery at this time of year anyway. :)
