I read about this e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow Palette online as one of the best low cost nude, shimmer palettes and had always had my eye on picking one up after that.
When I finally found this palette online I was so excited to buy it and get those shimmer shades on my eyelids. This 6 pan palette came with a brush and mirror in a very nicely weighted palette. The entire thing looks like a high end product so I was impressed before I’d even touched the eyeshadows.
When I did start to swatch the shades the formula was exactly as had been described online; ultra-silky and lustrous. They’re the kind of shimmers that you see on a bride at her wedding; soft, shimmery and smooth. They pick up well on an eyeshadow brush and will apply smoothly to my eyelids. I always wear an eyeshadow primer on my lids and over the primer these shades will wear well throughout the day with minimal fading and creasing.
I like the range of shades in this palette. It’s called the Naked Prism Palette so I expected the neutral tones however I like the progression from light to dark with slight changes in undertones along the way. It’s a great palette for someone looking to perfect the basics. There are the lighter shades for highlighting and the mid tones for day looks that can be darkened into a smoky eye if needed.
Overall I like this palette for the purpose it was designed for; perfecting the basics. I can grab this palette and smooth any shadow over my lids to emphasis my eyes with a natural shade and a little shimmer. I am also very impressed with the weighty packaging and nice mirror so it will be good for travel too.
