Hope your week is going well so far. I just wanted to do a quick post on something I've had in my collection for quite awhile- but haven't really talked about much. Not sure why- because this is probably one of ELF's better products. These palettes are called ELF Elements- and the concept is that you can put whatever colors you want in them- they can be blushes, eyeshadow, lip color, you name it. Each item you put in the palette is $1.00, and the palette itself (which is a GREAT quality palette with a nice big mirror, by the way) is also just $1.00. So for a filled pallete, that'd be $5.00. You're welcome for the awesome math skills there ;) I believe these palettes also fit depotted Milani & Mac shadows.
In my opinion, the shadows that go in the elements palettes are better qualty than those in ELF's regular $1.00 quads (the ones that have 4 pre-selected colors in them). These are for the most part more pigmented and easier to blend. Also the lip colors have a nice scent. I enjoy the blush as well, but keep in mind they are small-- the size of a typical eyeshadow-- and may be difficult to fit a brush in. The makeup pans attach to the palettes through small magnets on the bottom of the pans.
In any event, this is a pretty darn good deal. It's nice to be able to customize your palette, and I thought I'd show you some of my own combinations below. You could do an all lip palette, all eye palette, or mix it up like I have. If you want more ideas, ELF's website also has some pre-designed kits that you might enjoy.
