My first product review! Cross your fingers I don't butcher it! I purchased the e.l.f. Professional Studio Shimmer Palette a few weeks ago when I ordered a ton of stuff from the e.l.f. website (possible haul coming soon?). It was actually a product I didn't plan on ordering, but they had a promotion where if you ordered $20 worth of product you received this beauty bag full of items for only $2! This was one of those items. I don't buy many cream products since I find them a little intimidating and especially for someone like me who has oily skin, the crease factor weighs heavy on my mind. However, I have to say I would purchase this palette again and again.

Now, at $3 it isn't really life changing if you purchased this product and didn't like it. But I still think it is relevant to do a review because; (1) if you Canadian and ordered on-line you paid shipping which depending on how much you ordered adds an additional cost to the price and, (2) I think it is such a shame when I buy a product I hate and it goes to waste! Not good for my bank account or the environment.
e.l.f. is a product line that is not sold in Canada other then ordering off the website. However, while I was browsing for a house warming gift for my good friend in Winners I noticed some e.l.f. eye shadow palettes on sale. You may get lucky in finding their products at stores like Winners, HomeSense or Marshalls but there is no guarantee.

So there it is my first review! Hopefully it wasn't too painful to read. I am assuming I will continue to get better at this as I go. If you do end up ordering or already have the palette I would love you to hear your opinion on the product, as well as an opinion on any e.l.f. products you own.
Enjoy your President's Day/Family Day!
