Today I have a fun post, we’re going to be reviewing one of the new e.l.f. MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. The new e.l.f. Mint Collection has a ton of great stuff in it, and I’m probably going to be trying out a few more things, but the thing that caught my eye immediately was the MintMelt Eyeshadow palettes. There are two of these, Chocolate Mint and Mint To Be, they’re the same size as the Bite Size Eyeshadow palettes so you get 4 shadows and they are $4.00 each.
This is the Mint To Be palette, it has two shimmers and two mattes.
I really like the color story in this palette, cool toned palettes are always nice to add to the collection.
So the first shadow we have is a sparkly mint green. This is really pretty and I think it would look really pretty on. Next to that is a really light sparkly green that has a little bit of white/silver in it. Then there’s a matte light mint, I really like this shadow, I think it’s going to look really nice on. And the last shadow in the palette is a gray/green. Sometimes gray/greens tend to look a little muddy, but this one seems like it’s nicely mixed and it swatched nicely.
I have to say that based off of the swatches alone I’m not the most excited about this palette. I do think it’s so pretty and I had such high hopes for it, but when I swatched the shimmers, I really had to dig in to get them to show up. I’m not used to that with e.l.f. palettes, normally the formulation of the mattes and shimmers is fantastic but these shimmers didn’t hold up to what I’m used to. I am still going to use it, and the mattes were smooth and nicely formulated.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you’ve tried anything from the Mint Collection I’d love to know what and what you thought of it.
Until next time, have fun creating different looks and you can never have too many eyeshadow palettes :).
