Every year ELF Cosmetics launches a Beauty School collection of makeup sets, palettes, and gift sets - this year, they added a couple palettes, one of them being the Essential 18 Piece Eyeshadow Palette with Brush for just $8.00! I'm going to say this right off the bat, this palette is a MUST BUY! Heck, buy two of them and gift one, because it is that good! The palette features a variety of matte, satin, shimmer, frost, and a couple with a pinch of sparkle to them (yay for no chunky glitter shades!). All the shades perform amazing without a primer, and while I was doing my arm swatches (which you'll see below), I applied primer to the top half of the swatches and just left my skin bare on the bottom half, in nearly all the swatches you can't even tell the difference! I'm super impressed with this palette, easily the best eyeshadow palette they have produced and the size of the pans are perfect - I hope they do more palettes in the future like this (please no more triangle pans!!).
