ELF Chromatic Eyeshadow Palettes in Posh Peacock and Bird of Paradise

These palettes were sent to me by ELF Cosmetics. All opinions are 100% my own. This post does contain ads which means I will receive a tiny portion of ad revenue if you click on an ad. 

Does anyone else get super excited when they find new drug store items that you love? I feel like when it comes to drug store eyeshadows they can be a hit or miss. And when it comes to ELF eyeshadows, I haven't always been a huge fan but for the price, they do have some awesome eyeshadows. I must say though, these new Chromatic Eyeshadow Palettes are seriously amazing. 

There is two different palettes you can choose from. Posh Peacock is more of a cool toned earthy palette and Bird of Paradise is a very beautiful warm palette.  Each palette comes with 7 different eyeshadows. There is a mix of formulas in mattes to metals. It also comes with a duo ended brush. One side is a crease brush and the other side is an all over eyeshadow brush. I am usually not a fan of brushes that come in palettes, but I found this one to be pretty decent. 

Lets go over the Bird of Paradise palette first. 
  • The first shade in this palette is a really pretty shimmery yellow. 
  • The second shade is a matte orange, which I love!!
  • The third shade is a matte burnt orange shade. 
  • Fourth is a shimmery rusty/maroon shade. 
  • Fifth is a matte maroon shade.
  • The sixth shade is a light rusty matte purple.
  • Lastly is a light iridescent purple. 
Most of the shades performed really well. A couple were a little bit drying but the rest applied and blended out really nicely. Scroll down for swatches and also information on the Posh Peacock palette!

The Posh Peacock palette is my favorite of the two. There has been so many warm palettes released that I just wasn't super excited for the Bird of Paradise. But this palette here is seriously so stunning and we do not have too many palettes like this out right now!
  • The first shade is a beautiful shimmery champagne color.
  • Second is a matte taupe shade.
  • Third is a beautiful shimmery green. 
  • The next shade is a dark green with a hint of shimmer.
  • The fifth shade is a beautiful matte teal.
  • Next is a deep brown shade.
  • And lastly is a stunning baby blue.
All of the shades in this palette performed perfectly. I like this palette a lot better then the Bird of Paradise. So if you want to get one of the palettes, I would recommend this one! 

These palettes retail for $12.00 and can be purchased from www.elfcosmetics.com
