E.L.F. Brightening Eye Colors Review.

Hello all you lovely readers!
Today I have a review on the E.l.F. Brightening Eye Shadow pallets. These are the ones that are only$1. The easiest place to purchase them would definitely have to be their website. However in the states they are are available at some Kmart's and Dollar stores. At this point in time they have 18 different pallets. I have 3 of them in Butternut, Silver Lining, and Nouveau Neutrals(not pictured). The last pallet I have not opened yet. If you wish to see swacthed of that one to, just request it and Ill have it up. Now on with it.

Claims: "Luxuriously smooth, corn silk formula provides eyes with a neutral base and an awakened brightness. The formula blends into skin for a long lasting, beautiful effect. The 4 color quad allows for both natural and dramatic looks. Mirror in compact included."-eyeslipsface.com Texture: Smooth and Silky.
Blendabilty: Very easy to blend. However the texture of it does cause it to fad sometime in the blending process. Blending will most likely cause fallout.
Smell: Unscented
Lasting Power: I tend to get different results depending on what kind of base I use and what other shadows I use along with them. Without a base/primer or with a cheaper base/primer they tend to fade after about four hours. The color is still somewhat noticeable but mostly faded. With a good base/primer they have lasted me up to nine to ten hours with just little to no fading.
Other comments: The colors per palette are made to work with each other, making it easy to create your whole eyeshadow look with just one little palette. The small size of it makes it easy to travel with but does however make it somewhat hard to get all of the product out. Each pallet comes with a little mini brush which again is helpful for travel, and it nice for touch ups. It does come with a very small mini mirror where the brush sits, although it is small you can see both your eyes in it for when applying the eye shadows.
Overall: I would recommend this product. For only $1 it is defiantly a drugstore steal. It comes a such a variety of shades that makes it so easy for people to find which pallet will suit them best.
Repurchase?: YES!

Top:Silver Lining Bottom: Butternut-Both without a Base.

Take from this what you will.
