It has been a while since I got any Elf products. The return of the Illuminating palette last month (review to come) inspired an order with a few other things to take advantage of the flat rate Canada shipping.
Packaging is great - the box shows illustration of the colours inside, the palette is of good quality plastic with the matte feel to it. Plus it is slim and small, with a mirror under the lid, great for travelling.
The lineup of 10 eyeshadow shades is in both warm and cool tones, with satin matte finish and good colour payoff, suggested to be used as eyeshadows (dry or wet) and liners.
And the verdict is they do, as brow bone highlight but not much as a lid colour. I can't tell much of the difference between the first 2 shades when they are on, love the third and fifth shades as transition colours but am indifferent with the fourth shade.
Despite the small size, the palette actually houses quite a lot of product (0.49oz/ 14g) for $10 (mind the exchange rate), in comparison to Maybelline the Nudes palette (0.34oz/ 9.6g) or L'Oreal La Palette Nude (0.62oz/ 17.5g).
