ELF Holiday Palettes 2013

Hello my fellow makeup enthusiasts!!

I try to go into Walgreen's once a week and walk through the makeup to see whats new. On one of those days I walk into a huge display of ELF new Holiday stuff. I didn't have my phone with me so I could take a picture of the new goodies. 

I only got two palettes because palettes are my favorite thing EVER. Don't they look beautiful and elegant in gold and white. ELF sure is stepping up the packaging. 

The first palette I got was a little 6 shadow set. The shadows in this compact are a different triangle shapes. They came out with this new shape for the shadows a few months ago but this is my first time trying them. Its kind of cool but I think it would look better if they where square shape.

All the shades in the palette have shimmer but some have chunks of glitter in them. The darker shades are the only shades I like. The two middle colors are my least favorite. They have the chunks of glitter and it gets everywhere. What else I don't like is the way the feel. They feel kind of hard when you touch them. I have seen ELF put out some pretty amazing 6 pan shadow compacts and this was not one of them. Good thing I only paid 3 bucks for it. 

The other palette I got was the Beauty Book and I paid 5 dollars for it. Which is a good price for 9 shadows and an eyeliner.  

I was a little more impressed with this palette. Just look at the colors. I am in LOVE with the dark blueish green color. Its beautiful and has gold shimmers in it oh man its the best. What else I like about this is you get 2 matte shades which is great to have when you have so much going on in one palette. And then there is 2 shades that have the chunky glitter I hate but that's ok I have 7 other shadows I love. 

All shades swatched over Smashbox Lid Primer.

I love the Beauty Book!! There is a few shadows I hate but I give it an 8 out of 10. And I don't like the 6 shadow compact and I give it a 2 out of 10.

Thank you for reading and until next time!!
