Review: e.l.f. Everyday Brights 32 Piece Eyeshadow Collection

Following the huge success of the limited edition 32 piece eyeshadow palette last holiday season, e.l.f. cosmetics have launched two new 32 piece eyeshadow collections earlier this month, namely, the Everyday Brights and Everyday Basics as part of their permanent essential line.  In this post, I'm going to review the Everyday Brights palette which I got for free as a replacement for a lost lipstick I had won (for those of you who are curious on the full story, please click here).

Let's look at the packaging of this palette first:

It comes in a nice, clean white box with a window showing the first three rows of eyeshadow and when you take it out of the box, you get this sleek, professional-looking palette that also feels very sturdy! The palette is conveniently sized so you can easily carry it with you when traveling.

On opening the palette, you are greeted with 32 different eyeshadows, some of which are quite unusual colours and they are all very bright, hence living up to the palette's name.  You also get a small dual ended eyeshadow applicator but I've never used it as it feels a bit coarse to the touch. A small mirror is located on the opening side of the palette as well.

So far, the ones I used are very nicely pigmented but you have to be careful when using them as due to their powdery texture, they tend to cause a lot of fall out so I suggest you build up the colour gradually or else some loose powder under your eyes which you can dust off easily when ready.  The colours are very easy to blend together and I'm always satisfied with the results.  Most of the colours are shimmery or contain some chunkier glitter but there is also a nice selection of matte shades as well :)

The use of a primer is always a must if you want your eyeshadows to last all the time while you're out and these eyeshadows really do last long enough for me! Here are some looks I have created with this palette so far and the eyeshadows I used:

Third row; # 2, 5 & 7

Fourth row; # 2 & 4 (red is FCC Dare)

Second row; # 4 & 5 (darker green in outer corner is FCC Leaves)

First row; # 2, 3 & 4
Second row; # 8

You can see they are all really pigmented, even the neutral brown ones, however, my favourite look is the first one as I love how the colours matched and how bright they turned out to be.  Which is your favourite look ladies?

You can get your Everyday Brights collection for €10 from the elf cosmetics website. Surely great value for money!!
