E.L.F 100 Shades Holiday Palette | Cheap, Great Gifts!

At this time of year E.L.F tends to release several different “Holiday Kits” at great discounted prices. I found one in the store and I could not resist! The colors are very nice and the quality is surprisingly great! In the following post I have pictures of the palette as well as swatches of some of my favorite shades.

The palette is huge! There are 100 pans of different colors. Mostly nude shades with some great colors mixed in. There are a great mix of mattes, shimmers, and glitters. The palette is mostly organized with similar colors and shades.

Here is a look at the shades.

All of these shades are stunning! There are so many different looks that someone could do with this palette.


Now E.L.F does have mixed reviews as a brand. They are very affordable, but they do no skimp on quality. In this palette specifically, the quality of the shadows are great!

The Glitter shades are to die for! There is a bit of fallout (in the white shade here) but most swatch very nicely with your fingertip, and that is how I would recommend using most glitter shades. The 1st shade is sooooo pigmented, I was shocked! And that is how 70% of the glitter and shimmer shade swatch. But others such like the 4th burgundy shade lack the pigmentation that you would expect. But, you can make it work by adding a white base or with layering.

The shade selection for the glitters and shimmer shades is great! You have very many options. You can do an all glitter eye if you’d like or you can add a bit of shine and color to any look all over the lid. As mentioned before I would say to use a base if you want it to last all day, but I would suggest that for any glitter eye shadow, not only these ones.

You can make anywhere from natural to dramatic looks with the mattes. In the swatches I didn’t choose the best light shades since you can’t really see them, but you can see in the darker shades they are very smokey. I am very picky on dark black and brown shades and I truly LOVE these two shades. I do think the mattes are very well made. Some of the matte shades I would compare them to the same or similar to the shades in the Naked Ultimate Basics palette.
