Brand Breakdown: elf Cosmetics Mad for Matte Palette

I totally forgot where I bought this from but I just remember being really excited when I spotted it at the store. As you may probably can assume by now, I am quite a fan of elf cosmetics. With that said, I've also always been a fan of shimmery eyeshadows but I am starting to venture out of my comfort zone and have been trying matte shadows for a while now. When I saw their Mad for Matte palette, I thought it could be a perfect starter matte palette for me.

I love the packaging- it's simple yet sleek. The colors are wonderful. The formulation is buttery smooth. There are a few things that I didn't like about it: it could be more pigmented and I wish it stays on longer. I really wanted to love this palette. I really did, but I hate to say that it just didn't work out for me. In addition, I don't think that it blends easily. This is a palette that I would use on a daily basis for work but I don't want to spend the extra time in the morning to get my shadow game on point.

With that said, I find myself only using this during the weekends or when I just feel like playing around with new looks at home.
