Review :[ ELF Get the Look Set Series ] ELF Eyeshadow Trio

Happy Monday! I planed on reviewing my NYX lipsticks today, but I will just do that tomorrow. For today, I will be reviewing the eye shadow trio that I got from ELF's 5 piece "Get the look" eye set last June. [ Mid- June Haul. ] The set contains one lash curler, 1 eye shadow trio, 1 mascara, 1 eye shadow brush and 1 liquid eyeliner. I will review the lash curler, mascara and eye liner soon. 

But for tonight, I will do a short review on the trio first. :) 

 Talc, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Dimethicone, Polyisobutene, PVM/MA Decadiene Crosspolymer. May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Tin Oxide (CI 77861), Yellow No.5 Lake (CI 19140), Red No.40 Lake (CI 16035), Blue No.1 Lake (CI 42090)  

Bought the set for Php 399.00 at Watsons, MAll of Asia. 

I am not really sure on how much it weigh because I do not have the box with me anymore. But I think the size is pretty good.

The 3 eye shadows are shimmery but not the "messy" kind. And I like that!
The colors are perfect for neutral smokey eye. Or some bronze-y look. I love the colors! 

And now, to sum up this short review. Here are the PROS and CONS. :)

-- Good Pigmentation! It isn't super pigmented. The black/darkest one isn't that pigmented but after 2-3 swipes you can already see the color. 
TIP: Use an eye primer or eye shadow base. I like using the NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk and it works great! ♥
--- It is super compact and it won't eat up a lot of space in your kit. 
-- It is amazing for its price!
-- It is easy to blend. 
-- It last pretty long. [ without a primer or base ] 4-5 hours, I think. 
-- I love the colors. The combination is just perfect for everyday neutral look, and even for special occasions. 
-- Very easy to apply. 

-- It has talc on it. And maybe some other bad stuffs that I am not familiar with yet. 
-- It is a bit chalky. 
-- It isn't that pigmented. [ I know it contradicts one of my PROS but this one doesn't bother me that much. But it might be a bit of an issue for others. ]

Will I repurchase?
The same trio?! Maybe not. But I want to try out other shadows from ELF. I might purchase other palettes from the brand. 

Will I recommend?
The eye shadow. YES! I am not sure if you can buy this one alone but if ever you can. It is pretty good. Especially for beginners. 

Overall, it is amazing considering the price. Not the BEST and MOST pigmented out there. But I think you get what you pay for. And this is amazing for the price.
 [ ulit ulit?! redundant!? :D ]

I hope you guys enjoyed this short review. I will be reviewing the other products from the set next time. I want it to be like a "series." :D 
Thanks so much for reading! MWAH! ♥

Have you guys tried this out already? What palette from ELF do you want me to try out or do you recommend?

Nice review chel! :) I also had the same observations with the elf eyeshadows, I have the beauty book which has so many beautiful colors. :) I also use nyx jep in milk as a base for my shadows and the colors really do look better, but sometimes i use nyx jep in pure gold if i feel a little bit sosy. haha ang arte ba? :p
