ELF Cosmetics Modern Metals Collection ($32 for the set) is a beauty influencer curated collection that was also inspired by New Orleans. This collection features shades that can work on a variety of skin tones and looks. I also love that the color scheme is just in time for fall.
The Eyeshadow Palette, $12
This palette has a nice range of fall tones as well as metallic neutrals to create a number of eye looks. I found the shades were pigmented and easy to blend, although they did kick-up in the pan a bit. Anyone using this palette will have the ability to create easy day to night looks.
These were my favorite items from the collection. The liquid lipstick applies very smooth and did not dry out my lips. The formula is in a rusty, terracotta shade and was also comfortable to wear during the day. The diamond shaped applicator has a well to hold extra product to make sure that one application is all you need.
The gold lipgloss is indeed a stunner, with gold glitter throughout. This works as a great lip color topper, but I would not suggest wearing it on its own on deeper skin. It made me look really ashy when I did this because the glitter is rather intense.
This palette is great for on the go blush and highlight application needs. The formula did kick up in the pan, but application is buildable. The lighter blush colors are not wearable as blushes for deep skin, so I had to go with the darker, terracotta shade. It added a subtle color to my cheeks, which is great.
The highlighters in this palette are buttery soft and applied smoothly. They are also very pigmented, so a light hand is needed when applying them.
This entire collection can be the perfect gift for the holiday season. It’s affordable and great for makeup beginners!
