The masses have spoken (by the masses, I mean the approximately 2 of you who voted in last weeks poll) and it looks like my peeps are tired of seeing eyeshadow combinations created with Wet N Wild trios. You’re traitors. Every last one of ya. You know how much I love my WNW palettes! Well I’ve got news for you… I just placed an order on the Wal-Mart website for like 5 new Wet N Wild palettes, so stuff that in your pipe and smoke it!
I’m kidding. About smoking it, I really did place the order…
But in all seriousness, thank you to everyone who took the time to vote! New polls are posted [here] every Monday by 12:01 am EST, and if you would like to be the first to know, be sure to follow me on Twitter.
Based off the results so far, it would seem that most of you are interested in seeing more E.L.F. and Too Faced eyeshadow combinations! So while we wait on my Wal-Mart order to arrive, I figured we may as well give the people what they want: Naked pictures!
The E.L.F. Prism Palette in the shade “Naked” that is 😉 Sorry to disappoint, but I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly. Copyright infringement anyone?
Numero Uno. So this is my go to look for this palettes. Basically I just put the yellow shade all over the lid and the darkest brown shade on the outer V and along the lower lash-line. Then I use the white shade to highlight under my browbone, and the orange shade to transition just above the crease.
For our second look, we’re going to use all of the same colors, just tweak their arrangement a bit. The white shade will still be used to highlight the browbone, the yellow shade will still be place all over the lid and we will still use the orange shade to transition from the crease to the browbone. However, instead of limited the dark brown shade to the outer V, were going to place it entirely in the crease (and again, along the lower lashline).
Our last look is super easy. All you need is the dark brown shade on the outer 2/3 of your lid and crease, and then the white shade on the inner 1/3 of your lid and crease. Also apply the white shade under your browbone to highlight, and then run the dark brown shade under your lower lashline.
THOUGHTS ON THIS PALETTE
You can find this palette online at the e.l.f. website and in most drugstores for $10. With a total of 0.42 oz, these eyeshadows roughly come out to $24 per ounce (as opposed to the $90 per once you would pay for Urban Decay’s Naked palette, or the $24.50ish you would pay per ounce for a Wet N Wild trio).
As for the actual content, this palette consists of 6 all shimmer shades that mimic the coloration of Urban Decay’s original warm toned Naked palette. I find that the two mid-toned brown shades that are 4th and 5th from the left swatch virtually the same, and are not the most flattering shades on my fair skin on the lid, in the crease or in the outer V. Therefore, I really only find 4 of the 6 shades featured in this palette wearable.
Concerning the performance, I’m pretty impressed with the pigmentation of this palette. The shadows themselves are chalky and you will have fall out, but they are super smooth and very easy to blend. That having been said, they don’t wear very well throughout the course of the day, so I highly recommend a primer.
This palette has been rated a 4.7/5 stars on the e.l.f. website by nearly 300 people and I don’t get why. At $24 per ounce, it is a great value, and due to it’s highly pigmented selection of shimmery and warm toned shadows it’s also an acceptable drugstore dupe of the Urban Decay Naked palette. However, I’m simply not impressed with the staying power and would personally rate this palette at 3.5/5 because of it. It’s not a bad palette, I just don’t think it’s as good as Wet N Wild.
