I’ve been getting into affordable eyeshadow palettes this year so when I saw the Elf Rose Gold Sunset palette while browsing and doing a little online shopping on Orabel Inc I knew I had to pick it up. While I wear a variety of shades of eye shadow, I do have a soft spot for warm tones. I’ve been wearing this palette and travelling with it so I’m ready to share my thoughts on this very easy to use and afforable palette.
The first thing that drew me to the Elf Rose Gold Sunset Palette, aside from the $15 CAD price tag, was the colour selection. While it does lean warm, there is a nice variety of shades included which makes it fairly versatile. I’ve created both soft and neutral looks with it, as well as some warmer and bolder looks. You really don’t need any supplemental palettes which makes it great for travel.
The eyeshadows are quite soft, however I think that makes them super easy to use. The mattes blend out effortlessly and can easily be built up if you’re looking to add more drama. It also makes it a very fuss-free palette for rushed mornings and travel. While the shimmers look fairly light swatched, they pack on more pigment when applied with a flat brush (I use the MAC 242).
The first look I’m sharing is a rather quick and neutral “every day” look. The eyeshadows are unfortunately not named (eyeshadow palette pet peeve!) but I used the third and forth shades in the crease and under my eye. On the lid I have the first two shades with the forth in the outer-v area.
The second look is a bit spicier – I used the forth shade and the last shade in the crease and under my eye. On the lid I have the sixth and seventh shades with the last shade in the outer-v to add some depth.
Overall, I really enjoy the Elf Rose Gold Sunset Palette. It leans on the softer side but I think that makes it very user friendly and great to effortlessly slap on the eyes when you’re in a rush. It’s definitely become my go-to for rushed work mornings. Better yet, it costs a whole $15 CAD so it is very afforable. I picked mine up at Orabel Inc, who I notice also carries a cooler toned version (the original Rose Gold Palette) which I’m tempted to pick up next!
