Elcie Cosmetics Minimalist Eye Shadow Palette


The Elcie Cosmetics Minimalist Eye Shadow Palette has been in my collection for over a year and it wasn't until recently that I used it for the very first time. Why was such a gem, and probably one of my favorite makeup pieces still lying around unused?

That's actually one of the areas that I have struggled with the most when it comes to the really special pieces of makeup that I have bought - the want to keep them pristine and perfect forever. Which makes absolutely no sense considering that makeup expires and will one day have to be thrown out.

Well, that's exactly one of the areas that I am working the most to change up this year. It was definitely a happy moment when I finally dug into it the first time and consequently the entire week following because I had added it to my makeup to-go bag. And because it was the only eye shadow palette that I had in my bag that week, I got to really test it out.

I got to do a little bit of everything with the palette: I did very simple eye looks, I did a few more smokey, smudgy looks and I even paired it with a shimmer lid to see how it would pair with all of those singles I own that need a good matte pairing palette like this.


At the end of a full week's use, I learned that I can in fact use all of the shades in the palette, including the vanilla shade (which I was sure I would never touch) and the lighter mid-toned brown (which isn't my favorite tone of brown).


All-in-all, I was able to find multiple uses for each shade (like mixing the mid-toned brown with the dark brown to create a rusty brown) and found myself really coming out of my shell with it, creating multiple looks and finding it a lot more versatile than I originally thought it was.

I'm definitely glad for Elcie Cosmetics Minimalist Eye Shadow Palette being part of my makeup stash and I look forward to reaching for it in the future.
