E.L.F Holiday Palette Haul, Swatch, Review & LOTD

I went into my very first Walgreens the other day when I drove two damn hours looking for the WnW holiday palettes. I used my GPS to find three Walgreens and five CVSs with no luck at all. =( I did, however, find this which is pretty interesting:

This palette has totally changed my mind about ELF products, and now I want to try more of their stuff! The only colors that were crappy were the bright purple and blue, and the matte brown.

Some quick eye swatches I did to play with the colors as soon as I opened this baby up (I also used the eyeliner that came with it, which I DO NOT like as it hurt and tugged, ouch!):

Then, an actual look:

I actually used this on Thanksgiving and the above look is my (failed) recreation of what I wore. The Thanksgiving look was soooo perfect, and much darker than this, but what do you expect when you have 10 minutes to do your makeup when you're going to work and already running late? :p

Needless to say, I do reccommend this! I'm going to try to find more and now I'm interested in what else they have to offer. :)


  1. Looks like a great palette! Love the look you did with it!

  3. Peach- yeah, and they were "larger" ones in Pittsburgh too, which is what surprised me! my email is, thanks for pointing that out, i'll add it to a page somewhere too. ugh i never realized i didn't have it on here! haha, i'm oblivious.
