I love that e.l.f. is an affordable, drugstore brand that does not test on animals. I have used and loved many e.l.f. products, but unfortunately, this palette wasn't up to par. The shadows were a little chalky and dry without much color pay off. I have this compact in another shade and the formulas are much better, so it could just be a bad batch. I wouldn't recommend this compact, but for the price I don't have too much room to complain!
