ELF | 5 Bite-Size Eyeshadow Palettes That Pack A (Good) Punch

Further back this year, between the first and the second lockdown, I was browsing the Internet on a quest for totally blue and totally green eyeshadow palettes, knowing very well that I wanted the Melt Cosmetics Smoke Sessions palette when it comes to green eyeshadows but didn't want to cash out a fifty. Especially when we know just how often I reach out for my makeup these days.

At some point, I came across palettes that ELF released for spring this year, called Bite-Size that you can get from Superdrug or Boots over here in London and that retail for a teeny tiny £3.

I'll admit that I had planned to get maybe three; the green, blue, and berry ones but you know as well as I do the appeal of a low price point. I ended up getting five out of the eight available, leaving aside some nudes and some that didn't review well online.

After years of buying and buying just to review, I made a smart choice to buy only what I would be sure to take on photoshoots. Smaller is better and lighter in my makeup kit.

ELF | Thoughts on the Bite-Size Eyeshadow Palettes 

Cruelty-free and vegan, those palettes were released to fill in a gap in the "ultra-pigmented, blendable" mini eyeshadow palette world. At £3 each, you'd be half-witted to get only one, which is why they've been created and set at a price that affordable.


I've used them quite a couple of times on photoshoots and I've been very pleasantly surprised about the quality of the eyeshadows. I thought the Açai You palette's matte light blue let down a little bit when I used it on a model, as it became patchy the more I tried to pack it on to make it opaque.

I didn't experience any other let-down from the other palettes but I guess that the mattes had better be applied on top of a colored eyeshadow primer like the ones from P. Louise (that I own and will write about soon, btw). And I am in love with Hot Jalapeño, an exquisite one in terms of color pattern.

Honestly, they're really cool lil palettes.
