e.l.f. Essential Little Black Beauty Book – Eye Edition

If you haven’t tried any e.l.f. products yet, stop reading this post, go online or to your local Target, pick up a few and them resume reading. I am still amazed that a company that sells their products for so little have such quality.  Seriously stop reading and do it…….. Ok now that you are back, I will share with you one of favorites from eyes lips face  aka e.l.f. ; the Essential Little Black Beauty Book-Eye Edition in cool and warm.  I received both of these for free during a promotion on their website.  (Side note:: they run promotions ALL THE TIME! And I usually get sucked in and buy what I don’t really need because its such a good deal, just a warning… ! )

e.l.f. Essential Little Black Beauty Book – Eye Edition in Cool and Warm –$6.00 each 

Little Black Beauty Book1-559x737

I wasn’t so sure about using the cool palette as I am a warm toned person (an autumn if you are into season coloring) and I have never used pink or blue eye shadow before as I didn’t think I could pull it off and not look like a pre-teen who raided her mothers makeup bag circa 1983. But surprise as I am learning you can pull off pink and blue with a light hand and adding other colors.  I would not suggest only using blue or pink shades for an eye look.  Add a more natural color like grey, gold, or brown for a more sophisticated look.   I am really impressed with e.l.f. eye shadows, they don’t crease, have staying power and for the most part are very pigmented.  I have found a few of the matte colors can come off as a bit chalky but all of the shimmers are really pigmented. While on a business trip for 2 and a half weeks I took both of these palettes as my only eye shadows and liners and was able to come up with endless looks.  I love that they are so thin and portable and the color selection will keep you creative.

Have you tired this palette from e.l.f. or other e.l.f. products? What are your favorites? Let me know in the comments or on Twitter!
