E.L.F. Essential Beauty School Smokey Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

The E.L.F. Essential Beauty School Smokey Eye Shadow Palette is a small glimpse of how great ELF cosmetics really are.  The palette itself can be purchased either online at http://www.eyeslipsface.com/ or in stores such as Target, K-Mart, Dollar Tree, and Big Lots for only $3.

They come in a few color selections, the one I have is Smokey (blacks & grays), they also have it in Natural (browns & neutral) and Cream Shadows (pinks & grays). 

The colors are all very pigmented, a little bit of product does go a long way; if you pack on too much product at once it gets chalky, so the key is to not over do it. The Smokey Eye palette shades are very matte with a slight sheer shimmer to them. From the images below you can definitely see the metallic/shimmer in the gray and white color, yet not as noticeable in the other shades.

Overall this palette is great for on the go or traveling because it is so compact.  I love how it comes with a variety of colors to help create many finished looks. There are highlighting shades, colors for the lid, and even for the crease, so really you only this need one palette to get a few different yet gorgeous looks.

This palette is perfect for anyone who wants to create several smokey eye looks without having to buy different palettes.  With the variety of shades you can pair the black and dark gray for a dramatic smokey eye look; the dark purple with the light violet for a typical smokey eye look, even the light gray with the dark gray for a subtle everyday smokey eye look…the possibilities are endless!
