I have had the e.l.f 32 Piece Eye-shadow Collection palette for a week now. I have really been enjoying it, a tad unexpected to be honest. Usually palettes like focus on quantity and less on quality, not the case this time around.
The palette itself is a little bigger than a MAC palette and smaller than an 88 palette. There is also a decent amount of each shadow in the pans.
Here are some swatches, I photographed them row by row so they correspond to the picture above.
All in all quite a versatile palette with mostly wearable colours. I never like palettes that have bright yellows and oranges. Even the brighter shades in here are usable.
Inconsistency is to be expected with a palette that costs this little. But I have to say that most of the shadows are pigmented. Some are more smooth then others (partly down to the differences in finish). There are three shades that are poor in pigmentation – you can see yourself from the swatches.
The green, blue and navy on the third row, the rust shade on row two and the silvers on the last row are my favourite. The lightest shades on the first row aren’t great, the same goes for some of the charcoal greys on the last line.
The palettes are also accessible, €10 / £9 from the e.l.f website. They also sell a 100 Eyeshadow palette. Neither seem to be available on US site.
Personally I prefer this to the 88 palette, which I never use. I know I will use this one. I feel a tutorial coming on :)
