I finally got elf 100 eyeshadow palette! I've wanted this for a while but reviews were quite mixed, so I wasn't sure if it was worth the money... Now they had an offer: buy something and get this free, so I bought one and got another for free. The other one is the prize in January 2010 giveaway, you can enter the giveaway here!
I was very glad when I received this: the colors are lovely! There are some accent colors but basically these are good for regular day time & evening looks.
Since I have also the Manly 120 palette and I thought that these might be too similar, here is a little e.l.f. 100 palette and manly 120 palette comparison:
-100 colors in elf/ 120 colors in Manly
-110g in elf/ 144g in Manly
-both are made in China
-similar (bad) smell
-both contain mineral oil
-very wearable colors in elf/ brighter colors in Manly
-elf palette is much nicer to use (in Manly palette the colors are in 2 "layers")
-the colors are nicely organized in elf palette
-both palettes feel "cheap" (light, cheap plastic) and these could break quite easily, but elf looks less cheap IMO :D
I basically needed a huge palette where I can find a certain shade, I'm looking for, very quickly. I found the colors in Manly palette not so good for this purpose but it's great if you need pigmented accent colors. This elf palette however is just what I was looking for! It's not the most pigmented palette but certainly enough for daytime looks :) I used sticky primer (Detrivore) in the EOTDs, these eyeshadows are quite powdery so I recommend a good primer!
