E by Evelyn "Cosmo Color" Palette Review



Hey guys I am back with another review! A very good friend of mine bought me this palette for my birthday and I am here to dish the dirt.

So if you are a "Basketball Wives" fan you know all about Evelyn's new makeup line. She has a few palettes available on the website and she will soon expand.

It came in this magenta packaging.


 Opening the package I cracked the brown, BOO!


THE PROS
*The colors are very pigmented, and the size is generous.
*I love the blinged out pink case!
*Shipping was super fast
*The large mirror is very convenient
*It is large but not so big it would be inconvenient for travel

THE CONS
*The palette was $39.95 and shipping was around $10. I feel this is a tad overpriced. 
*I don't like that Evelyn said her eyeshadows are made from the same company as MAC when her palette looks almost identical (except for the fancy packaging) to Coastal Scents and BH palettes. Which are also about $15-$20 cheaper.
*The packaging is super cute but a little flimsy, that is how I broke the chocolate eyeshadow. You do not want to just toss this anywhere.

OVERALL?
Overall I think this is a cute line, but Evelyn should be honest about who is manufacturing her makeup because anyone who knows anything about makeup knows this is NOT MAC quality. But for the price I still think it is a nice palette, especially for those who are starting to experiment with makeup. If you don't want to pay the extra just buy the Coastal Scents brand. If you want to see how the eyeshadows look I am wearing them in my "Fun in Florals" What I Wore... post. Her website link is below! That's all folks, laterr.

  9. This is a great review! I've been wanting a large eyeshadow palette for some time but I am not sure if I'd use all the colours so I am tempted to just buy the naked palette. Mac eyeshadow is very hard to break so you are right, this may not be from the same mfg. Visiting from the blog hop, hope you'll stop by and would you like to follow each other?

  13. I love those eye shadows, all of them are perfect! The brown one doesn't look ruined at all. But, as long as you can use it, it doesn't matter what it looks like. :D
