e.l.f. Cosmetics Baked Eyeshadows and Bronzers Review + Swatches

On Veteran’s Day, I took advantage of the HUGE sale that e.l.f. was having on their website. Everything was 50% off! Well…almost everything! It has taken me a few weeks to get around to using all of the products and writing a review.  I will not review everything in this haul at once. I will review products after I use them several times.

Anyway, in this review, I want to focus on the baked bronzer and eyeshadow palettes. I purchased the Baked Eyeshadow Palette in California and Seattle. California is a palette with neutral shades. Seattle is a palette with smokier shades. I purchased the Baked Bronzer in Bora Bora for $3. I was super excited about receiving the palettes and bronzer. I thought the colors in each palette were so beautiful and for $10 each, I really couldn’t beat that! However, once I got them and opened them and tried them out, I was sadly disappointed. There was barely any pigment in the shadows. I read somewhere that the pigment was more intense with a wet brush, but that really didn’t make much of a difference. I love e.l.f. products and I am really hoping that this is just an issue with the baked formula and not their eyeshadows in general because I purchased a pressed eyeshadow palette from Target a couple of weeks ago that I have not had a chance to try out yet. I might have to turn my back on e.l.f. in that one doesn’t work out for me!

As you can see from the photos above, there isn’t much pigment in the eyeshadows or the bronzers. 😦
