e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow Palette in Naked

Eyeshadow palettes always get me. I go through phases of either being really into matte or sparkly shades and although it's more convenient to have a mix of both in one palette I also have several palettes with all-matte or all-shimmery shades inside. The e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow Palette in Naked used to be raved about a lot online and I'm happy to report that it performs really well.

e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow Palette in Naked comes in black plastic packaging with a lid and decently sized mirror. For the price, the packaging seems sturdy and also compact enough for travelling. Mine also came with a double ended sponge applicator but it was quite flimsy so I got rid of it quickly. There are 6 shimmery shades inside that can be worn dry or wet, depending on the intensity you would like to achieve. They feel really soft and smooth to the touch. Despite being formulated as powders they feel like a lot like creams. The shades inside are mostly leaning warm and are simply stunning. I always apply them over my Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and never have any issues with longevity or fading of these eyeshadows. The darkest shade in the palette can have a bit of fall out, but I haven't noticed any with other shade. They have that old school eyeshadow scent, but it's not noticeable unless you actually smell them up close.
If you choose to apply them with a dry and fluffy brush, there will be a soft wash of shimmery color on the lids, while a flat brush will pack on more pigment. Used with a wet brush these shadows have a finish that leans metallic. I was initially surprised by their pigmentation and creaminess, because drugstore brands often still have trouble with making eyeshadow palettes where all shades perform well. I often decide to combine this palette with one of my Urban Decay's Naked Basics palettes or more lately with the Kat von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette and simply use my finger to pack on the color. I really like the fact that the highlighting shade actually shows up like a highlighter in the inner corner or the top of my cheeks on my skin tone. They're easily combined for a variety of looks and look just as stunning if you sweep only one across the lid and blend out the edges for a really natural look topped with some mascara and bronzed skin.
Despite the shades inside being shimmery they're still very wearable for everyday, without being over the top. For the price you really can't go wrong with getting this palette even if, like me, you already have way too many such shades. The e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow Palette in Naked is available here and they also make them in two other shades (Smoke and Sunset).

  1. Čudoviti odtenki. <3 Jaz sem vedno znova navdušena nad Elf. Se mi zdi, da vse izdelke, ki se preizkusila do zdaj so bili res odlični. Najboljše je pa da so cenovno res ugodni :).

    1. Enako :) Zelo si želim preizkusiti še njihove čopiče (kot jih nimam že preveč :P)

    2. Meni je njihov blush brush že skoraj must have. Sem si še enega naročila pre kratkim :). Small tapered brush imam pa za highlighter. Še kakšnega večjega bi morala sprobat. So res izredno mehki :).

    3. Vem da jih vsi vedno hvalijo, sploh blush brush. Ampak se mi zdi da odkar so prenovili angleško stran ne pošiljajo več k nam. Moram malo raziskat kako do čopičev. :)

    4. Jaz kupujem na Tam imajo kar dobro izbiro, seveda ne kot na njihovi strani, ampak imajo pa vedno te "in" izdelke na zalogi :).

    5. Ok, hvala, bom pogledala na tej strani :)
