Here are two more brand new products from e.l.f. for Fall 2012, the e.l.f. Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palettes, available in NYC and California. This is what e.l.f. says about these palettes: “Each Baked Palette features 10 gorgeous baked eyeshadows so you can achieve a flawless look whenever, wherever. The silky and blendable formula of our Baked Eyeshadow provides smooth and even application with each sweep of color. Baked in an oven, these eyeshadows offer rich pigmentation for a beautiful effect. Infused with active key ingredients Jojoba, Rose, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. The long-lasting and shimmering color can be worn wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation, offering a variety of gorgeous eye looks!”
You may remember my review and swatches of three of the single baked eyeshadows here. I loved them, and if these palettes offer the same formula, then they are a steal for $10 each. I know $10 is a lot for e.l.f., but when you consider that the Sephora Moonshadow Baked palettes are $30 for a very similar product, it seems like a great price. Also remember that e.l.f. is constantly on sale, so you may be able to pick up the palettes for even less. If you have already purchased the single baked shadows, you may be less interested in the California palette because of the similar shades. But the NYC palette looks to have several new shades to offer, so you may end up with less duplicate shades. Both palettes look great, though, so it may be worth getting both.
