After seeing these palettes literally everywhere on my feed, I felt like I just HAD to pick one up… so here I am with 8. Yeah I didn’t go half hearted with my new Elf quad collection… but hey ho! So here I am with every single one of the Elf Bite Sized Palettes so tell you my thoughts on them…
Packaging and Price
I mean at £3 a pop you really can’t complain at the price of these… they’re just so goddam pretty! They come in very simple clear, plastic packaging with 4 decent sized pans. They feel a little cheap, but when considering the price they’re really not that bad!
Reviewing this on a slightly different order to usual as it feels you need to put the conversation about shades in the next section between the images of the palettes and the swatches! But either way, the formula is really nice! They’re pigmented, with a buttery formula (one or two shades in there are a little dry, but all in all GORGEOUS shades), super easy to blend and long lasting on the lashes! Plus, I really love that they pop their pigment on in just a few swipes!
So, as I mentioned I have all 8 palettes in this range (there are also two very similar palettes in a mint collection, but they launched after I had picked these up). Each palette comes with 2 or 3 mattes and 1 or 2 shimmers. You can create a pretty decent look with every palette and while they might not offer all the variety in the world… if you know you love a neutral look on the daily, they’d be perfect for travelling (when we can do that again!)
Colours in order they are above…
Cream & Sugar – bone shade, shimmery gold, shimmery copper and a dark brown (super neutrals palette)
Pumpkin Pie – super warm brown, shimmery copper, mid toned brown, shimmery gold (warms neutral palette)
Hot Jalapeno – shimmery yellow gold, shimmery moss green, matte moss green and a dark, bluey green
Rose Water – shimmery rose, mauvey crease shade, shimmery rose gold, shimmery purple/brown with gold glitter
Berry Bad – a neutral crease shade, a shimmery copper, shimmery pink and a warm purple toned brown
Carnival Candy – bone shade, mustard brown, reddish brown, and blue shimmer
Acai You – Sky blue, two blue shimmer shades and a greyish brown
Truffles – shimmery silver, two matte browns (one lighter and one deeper) and a bluey black with glitter in
So I love these! Not only are they adorable, but their formula is actually pretty impressive! I feel like their a little restrictive sometimes in their colour story, but they also do only have 4 shades in there and are only £3… so you could pick up a few!
Have you tried these? If so, what did you think?
