Wet n Wild's Holiday Palette in Night Elf

No real introduction necessary. Here's the Night Elf palette from Wet n Wild's holiday collection.

On to the pictures!

All of the shadows have a smooth, relatively creamy feel to them except for the black shade which feels a bit dry but still applies pretty nicely - similarly to how the dark blue in the Snow Sprite palette applies. Even though the red is creamy, it doesn't apply quite as smoothly as the others and would require a bit more building to get even coverage.

You have probably heard that the darker brown shade with the teal duochrome is a good dupe for MAC's Club eyeshadow. I don't own Club, so I can't confirm this first hand, though I've seen a few side by side comparisons that other bloggers have done, and it looks pretty good to me.

And of course, this set also comes with a liner - this one a black with silver sparkle. I've said before that I'm not the biggest fan of these liners but, let's face it, we're all in it for the shadows.

and a look

The other day, I chose to do a look using the three shades on the neutral side of the palette.

You ladies are clever enough to know which went where. ; )

It's certainly nothing ground breaking, but it works very well for a neutral eye that needs to be done on the quick!

    I'm so glad you were able to get the palettes that you wanted from this series! This is definitely the most unique of the four, so I totally understand why you're happy about it :)
    And thanks so much for the lovely compliment! Definitely a nice ego boost, but I have to say that the makeup is probably helping out a bit in that area :P
