Elf Prism Eyeshadow Palette Review

When Elf first released their cosmetics line, I think half of me was super excited to see such an affordable brand hit the market but then the other half of me wanted to rethink purchasing their products in worries that they might be poor quality. Within the past few years, Elf has really stepped up their game and released some amazing products. Their HD Setting powder, Undereye setting powder, Acne foundation, Lip stains, and Mad for Matte palette are some of my all-time favorite makeup items. With Summer right around the corner, it’s gonna be all about the bronze and Elf has an eyeshadow palette that is perfect!

This is their Prism eyeshadow palette in the shade Naked. They do have two more colorful options, but of course I went with the neutral shade selection. This can be found at some Targets, a few other drugstores, Elf’s website, and Amazon. This palette usually retails for $10 and comes with six different shimmery eyeshadows. The mirror that is included is a nice size and I like the sleek and simple packaging Elf presents.

As with most, if not all, Elf palettes there are no shade names unfortunately. It starts with a bright vanilla shade leading to a buttercream and a few coppers and browns. The pigmentation on these shadows is perfect and they are all very buttery with no fallout. They apply well with a brush and blend in easily. The shades are all different enough to give you many different options and create some contrast on the eye without it looking messy. I do tend to like at least one matte shade, so I typically have to bring in other shadows but that’s just personal preference.

With a primer, these shadows last about six to seven hours before any creasing or fading begins. That seems to be pretty typical of most shadows on my oily eyelids. If your eyes aren’t oily, they’d last much longer. One of my favorite things about this palette is that it can also easily be used as a highlight palette for different skintones. It has the right amount of shimmer, meany no chunky glitter, to give the perfect glow.

I’ve loved this palette for years and definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something that can be used for multiple purposes. If you have any other questions, please feel free to leave them for me in the comments. Also, let me know what your favorite Elf product is!

This color has been sitting on the shelf waiting to be used for weeks, but I had other colors that I wanted to use first. Ulta’s Super Mauve is what I have on my nails this week and it’s one of my favorites for adding a subtle, somewhat neutral color. I think it’s so funny because I used to hate the color mauve when I was younger. I remember it being everywhere and it made me sick! But now it’s popular again and I actually enjoy it on my nails and some other accents.

    1. I love how bright Formula X polishes are. I should probably pick up more, I only own one sample that I got from ipsy a long time ago. This palette is great though. Definitely an underrated item in the drugstore!
