Review: Elf Studio Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset

Greetings Show Off's 

This e.l.f. Studio Prism Eyeshadow Sunset palette is something that I recently purchased from an order I placed on, through an Ebates link. The day I placed the order, elf was also offering a tax day sale where customers received 30 percent off using the coupon code "taxday".

These shadows come in two other versions (Naked and Smoke). I want these as well.

These ultra-silky and lustrous eyeshadows look like a powder but feel like a cream, allowing for a smooth and flawless application. Use to contour, line, and highlight for a radiant finish. The luminous, shimmery formula creates a gorgeous range of looks for both day and night.
This prism eyeshadow palette is currently priced at $10.00, however, is constantly offering coupon codes for awesome deals.  You can also go through Ebates and receive a percentage back from the cost of your entire order. 
How To
Apply dry all over the eyelid with a brush for a subtle wash of color or apply wet for a vibrant effect. Choose a light color to apply all over the eyelid as a base or to highlight. Next, apply a medium shade over the eyelid or in the crease to contour. Then apply the darkest shade to define and line the eye for depth and a smoky look. Mix and match for a custom blended look

Review & Rating
The Prism Eyeshadow in Sunset is the palette I currently own and have to admit that I am really happy with it. These palettes seem to be a lot more affordable than the foiled/metallic eyeshadows that are now all the rage on social media. This is definitely a dupe for me since I have not bitten the bullet and purchased any of the metallic shadows from companies like Makeup Geek, Color Pop, and Morphe. I would definitely give this palette a rating of 9 out of 10. I love the price, however, I wish that the formula of the shadows made them feel a little softer, like the LORAC Pro Palette shadows. I do not agree that these feel like cream.  However, a huge plus for me is that I do plan to use some of these shadows as a highlight on my face (top of cheek bones). A two for one :)

I also like how this comes a small sleek black casing with a mirror, so that I can just throw it in my purse and do my eyes at my desk at work if I want to :) I wish that it came with a eye brush rather than an eyeshadow applicator.
Let me know if you own this palette or if you plan to purchase it.
