ELF 32 pc. Warm Eyeshadow Palette

Happy New Year everyone!! I will be explaining why am I MIA for days at the end of this post. This is my first post for 2012. Whoa!!! I told you before that I am going crazy over neutral eyeshadows. The fact that weeks from now, I will finally get a job prompted me to buy a more travel friendly palette that will not hurt my budget. ELF saves the day. I have been seeing a lot of palettes being sold at ELF stands. This warm palette caught my attention. 

When I asked the SA to open the palette so I could see a better view of the shades included, I was really amazed with the shade selection. You get matte and shimmery shades all in one. There is a mixture of pinks, berries, taupes, browns, highlighters and dark shades perfect for smokey eyes!!! I absolutely love it! The pigmentation is awesome too especially the shimmery ones. 

It comes with a mirror and a brush applicator. The packaging is very flimsy though.
Here is a closer look at the shades:

The shimmery ones have very nice and creamy texture. Some matte eyeshadows are very powdery and the color hardly come off when you swatch them. So, you have to double your effort building up the shade.
Here are the swatches of this palette:
(These are bare swatches; I did not put any primer.)

This part is the highlighters and lighter shades.

Brown shades

Pinks and berries

Dark shades which are perfect for smokey eyes.

Over all, this palette is really good!! I really love it and this is better than my 28 neutral palette!! The shades are perfect for everyday wear and also for night outs. This costs only 399 pesos or 5 dollars at ELF website.

Why am I mia for the past days? My grandfather died last Dec.  27, an hour after I finished blogging about my Cream of the Crop post. I still can't believe he is gone. This is my worst fear. I love him so much because I grew up with him. He actually has more pictures in my cellphone and camera than my dad and mom combined. I am tryong my best to carry on with life without him. 

Ours for a moment, God's forever. I will miss you lolo. You know how much I love you. :c

Godbless everyone
