I received the e.l.f. Chromatic Eyeshadow Palettes back in May. I’ve been meaning to play around with them and create a few looks, but it was difficult finding the time. Now that I’ve got more free time I’ve had the chance to test them out. It was really difficult choosing which one to test out first so I sort of used both. This look will feature both palettes, but Posh Peacock will be the star of the show.

There are 2 Chromatic Eyeshadow Palettes. There is Birds of Paradise and Posh Peacock. Today I will be talking about Posh Peacock. It contains 7 eyeshadows in both matte and metallic finishes. I took the photo of my hand swatches like this so that you could see the color shift on the last 2 shades. The metallics swatched beautifully. For the most part the mattes swatched just as beautifully, but that teal needed a little help. As you can tell from the swatch it’s a bit patchy and needed some building up.

In fact I reached for Posh Peacock first because I wanted to test out that beautiful teal shade along with that last shade. I already had a look in mind. I applied the teal shade on my lid. I had a feeling that would be the best use for that shade. I applied that last shade on top with a dampened brush. I applied the 4th shade on my lower lash line. I’m really happy with how my look turned out. Everything applied and blended fairly easily. Although if you’re planning to add that teal shade in your crease you might have trouble blending it out. It really does make for a beautiful lid shade though.

My look lasted throughout the day, but I did experience a bit of creasing after about 6 hours. Overall, I’d have to say it was a fun palette to experiment with. Some of the shades are unique in my collection and I will definitely reach for them. I love that this palette also comes with a dual-ended brush. I really like e.l.f.’s brushes so even the brush will get some use. I will say that I wish it included another matte shade. Out of the 7 shadows only 2 are matte. I know it’s a ‘chromatic’ palette, but it would have been nice to maybe throw in a decent transition shade. Which is why I reached for the Birds of Paradise Palette. I’m sure you could still create a full looking using just Posh Peacock, but I wasn’t so sure I could pull it off myself. So I reached for another palette.

Which shades would you have used to create a full looking using Posh Peacock?

  1. US has such amazing range of elf cosmetics! We only get bits and pieces here in Canada.

  2. Looks lovely! If you have any recommendations to metallic glitter eyeshadows that do not transfer and make a mess, please let me know!

    • Thank you! Hmm I don’t really wear a lot of glittery shadows these days, but ColourPop makes a lot of really nice metallic shadows at a really affordable price. I also have a few from ittse that are amazing (also very affordable). Hope this was helpful!

  3. Such gorgeous colours! Love the combo you used for your look. I think I’d go with the gold and pink to create a full look.

  6. I really like the color story in this palette, and those duochrome shades are really pretty! I would probably use that teal shade either on the lid, the outer corner or the lower lash line, so it wouldn’t be a big issue for me if it didn’t blend perfectly
