You Need This $10 E.L.F. Eyeshadow Palette In Your Life

I'm not exactly sure when I received this palette in the mail, but the moment I saw it, I knew I was going to love it!

I've been a fan of E.L.F. Cosmetics for years now, but not all of their products are hits for me. There are definitely a few "what the hecks", but more often than not, I do enjoy ELF products, and their new Rose Gold Sunset Eyeshadow Palette is one that impressed me.



As the name suggests, this palette is composed of 10 beautiful warm-toned matte and shimmer shades. I am naturally drawn to these colors because they compliment my light-brown eyes.

When I first swatched these on my arm, I noticed that these are softer to the touch compared to their other palettes. I'm not sure if they reformulated these shadows, but these feel nice and soft, and were surprisingly easy to blend. The pigmentation is decent, but definitely buildable. They didn't blend out patchy, and I was pleasantly surprised with its overall performance. For a $10 eyeshadow palette that has a mirror, that's pretty awesome. And if you needed two more reasons to love this palette, this is cruelty-free and 100% vegan.


  • Affordable
  • Easy to blend
  • Not much fall-out
  • Decent pigmentation
  • Not patchy
  • Has a mirror


  • Some shades need building up

I created this look using the palette alone, and I really like how it turned out. The shadows didn't give me a hard time building up or blending, and like I said earlier, I was pleased with the palette's overall performance. This is probably one of the best eyeshadow palettes in the drugstore right now, and if you were on the fence about this one, may this post be your nudge to go pick it up.
