e.l.f. Cosmetics Smokey Eyeshadow Palette - Party: swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I picked up this e.l.f. Cosmetics shadow palette at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago. It's listed as the Smokey Eyeshadow Palette, but the back of the palette has the name listed as Party. I tried looking it up on e.l.f.'s website, but couldn't find it.

Whatever it may be called, I really love this palette! The swatch photo does not do these shade justice! The bottom middle shade is my favorite -- a sparkling charcoal gray! Great pigmentation too!

Check out my pics, swatches, stats, and review...

e.l.f. Cosmetics Smokey Eyeshadow Palette - Party

Basic stats for e.l.f. Cosmetics Smokey Eyeshadow Palette in Party:
Formula: pressed-powder eyeshadows
Coverage: nicely pigmented
Wear: average
Shade Info: This palette contains 6 eyeshadows
Cost/Availability: I purchased this for $2.99 at TJ Maxx -- but I don't know what the original price was or where you can find it now.
Packaging: square black palette; see-through window to see shades; comes with a mini shadow brush; small mirror inside palette
My Rating: 5 out of 5 kisses!

These are pressed-powder eyeshadows that are really soft and silky. They blend easily and are nicely pigmented.

These shadows have really nice pigmentation, especially for an e.l.f. shadow palette!

Average wear for an eyeshadow; nothing super long-wearing but will last all day with an eyeshadow primer.

Shade Info:
This palette contains six shades, which do not have names. The top row features a warm white with shimmer, a pale aqua-blue satin, and a rich purple satin. The bottom row features a silvery sand satin, a sparkling charcoal gray, and a sparkling black. The sparkling charcoal gray and sparkling black really sparkle in person!

I purchased this palette for $2.99 at TJ Maxx. I don't know where you could find it on its own other than trying TJ Maxx.

A square black palette with a see-through window so you can see the shades. When you open it up there is a small mirror on the top and an included mini shadow brush (I don't personally keep or use for eyeshadow application; I'll use it with nail art though).

e.l.f. Cosmetics Smokey Eyeshadow Palette in Party Review:
This was a palette I picked up and then put back, then picked it up again because it was so cheap that I knew I'd be mad at myself if I didn't add it to the rest of the stuff I was buying (which was Color Club polishes from the Back To Boho collection).

The colors are all very pretty and wearable. The sparkling charcoal gray is my absolute favorite and I had no idea it was so pretty until I swatched it!

In my experience, e.l.f. palettes are hit or miss and this is definitely a hit! If you can find this one I would highly recommend picking it up. You won't be disappointed!
