ELF Mad For Matte “Holy Smokes” Palette | Review and Look.

It is no secret that the OG ELF Mad for Matte palette is good, but what about the new addition to the collection?

This $10 palette contains an array of shades from white to black-really everything you need to make a basic Smokey eye.

There is even a Forrest green and a navy blue for different options for your Smokey eye!

The shades included are:

  • A white
  • A light grey
  • A light brown
  • A more warm Brown
  • A medium brown
  • A dark brown
  • A Forrest green
  • A navy blue
  • A deep grey
  • And of course black

The look:

  • I primed my eyes with the Wet N Wild Photo Focus eye Primer. I didn’t have one from ELF, but I wanted to use a drugstore one.
  • I set it with Wet N Wild “Brûlée”
  • I used the light brown as a transition.
  • Then I packed the Forrest Green shade all over my lid.
  • Then I used the warm shade to blend out that shade and to help it fade into my crease.
  • To deepen my crease and outer corner I used the black shade.
  • I then lined my eyes with my KVD Ink liner in “Trooper” and applied the BWC Mascara in “Black” which I am finally almost done with.

  • For my lower lash line I lined with a black ELF pencil.
  • Then I smudged it out with the light brown, then a little bit more with the warm shade.

Over all thoughts:

For $10 this palette is awesome. The shades are pigmented and very easy to blend. The packaging is of nice quality and you get a nicely sized mirror. My only complaint is that there isn’t a Cream shade in it. But, I have 100000 cream colored shadows, so that really isn’t that big of a deal.

You can pick it up for yourself, HERE! Make sure to join their point program, it is actually very nicely set up!

I hope you enjoyed this post! What is your favorite drugstore Smokey eye palette??
