I’ve wanted to try these palettes for the longest time and I finally had the chance. They’re super affordable, and the best of all: cruelty free. They all have fallout but aren’t dry at all. Let’s review each one separately.
CONTOUR PALETTE IN LIGHT/MEDIUM
- This isn’t the kind of highlighter that blends with the skin, and I think it’s too white, so I prefer to use it as an eyeshadow.
- I like to use the yellow tone as an eyeshadow base for a cost-benefit reason, as it has a lot of product and we tend to hit pan on the lightest shadows from our eye palettes first.
- Usually these type of palettes come with unflattering orangy/greyish bronzers. Luckily, this is not the case. Elf did a great job selecting these contouring powders; they give dimension and look natural at the same time.
CONTOURING BLUSH & BRONZING POWDER IN ST. LUCIA
- When I saw it was the last one that left, I knew inmediately that it was the famous Nars Orgasm/Laguna which I don’t own, but according to what I’ve seen, it’s more intense than this. That doesn’t mean you can’t get a similar look though.
- The packaging is way too inspired by the original for my taste, but can’t deny it’s very practical.
- Pigmentation wise it’s more on the subtle side, but the shades can work on nearly every skin tone and occasion.
POWDER BLUSH PALETTE IN LIGHT
- This is my absolute favorite. Proceed with caution when applying, because the pigmentation is insane, the best I’ve seen so far across the board.
- You can remove the pans to create and customize your palette mixing it with other Elf palettes. I just don’t know why the contour palette I bought doesn’t have that option.
- Its variety makes it a must have. Stop reading this ASAP and go get it if you haven’t already!
