ELF Beauty-On-The-Go eye shadow palette

Hello Beauties,
Hope you are enjoying the day. Today I am going to review an eye shadow palette that I got from my ELF haul some time ago. It is called Day on the beach and is a compact & travel-friendly palette I own. As seen on EFL website:
 What ELF says about Studio Beauty-On-The-Go Single Palette:
The convenient Beauty-On-The-Go Single Palettes for your eyes, lips and face allows you to be your own makeup artist whenever, wherever. The single makeup palette offers portable beauty when you store it in the Beauty-On-The-Go Storage Case or Compact when you're out and about! Perfect for creating multiple looks for any occasion so you always looks beautiful whether you're heading to class, work or out on the town. Each gorgeous, pigmented Single Palette features:  
10 eyeshadows     
2 lip colors
1 blush or bronzer                   

Price : 3.00 $, I bought this online from ELF website

My take on the palette:I think it is 50-50. It has all wearable colors that go well with all Indian as well as western dresses. Apart from pretty colors what I like best is it has assortment of some truly unique colors which we all always hunt for but are difficult to find. Also it has perfect combination of matte and shimmers. Alright may not be perfect for those who do not like shimmers as much as mattes but for someone like me a little bit of shimmer never hurts ;) Blame it to the name effect! But without a primer the color pay-off might not be that good and lasting. And last but not the least it offers 2 glosses and a blush too J 


Sorry my cam was not picking the colors properly…Let me know if unclear. Would try to do an EOTD soon J

Cons of ELF Day on the Beach Eyeshadow Palette

·        Comes with no case (unless u have bought the case separately which holds 3 such palettes), mirror & applicator so you would have to be mindful to carry them separately.·        Contains Parabens.
