All these eyeshadows are pigmented! I also really like the cream shadows, as a little bit of the cream shadow is great as an eyelid primer. The sparkle eye edition is great for those who like brighter more shimmery shades. There are some neutral shades, but there are no matte shades. The included eyeliner is ok, and it works in a pinch, but doesn't last a super long time. I also don't really pay attention to the diagrams, but they are helpful for beginners.
I've had this eyeshadow palette for a while now, and i honestly LOVE it. There are so many different colors that you can do so many different looks with. They are very pigmented, even the ones with a lot of shimmer. ESPECIALLY the black. You have to use a tiny bit, and even sometimes thats too much. I just like to use it as a liner. I got this for about 5 dollars, and it was worth every single penny!
I was really interested in ELF's beauty encyclopedia eye editions because they were only $5 and had a lot of shades. I especially love the sparkle eye edition because it is a GREAT dupe for Urban Decay's Ammo Palette (which costs around $35). Don't get me wrong guys, I love my urban decay, but for those who can't dish out so much for eyeshadow (or just don't want to!) why not get the E.L.F. one instead- its such a bargain. The E.L.F palette has 12 eyeshadows, 2 creme shadows, 1 eyeliner and 1 small eyebrush. I was really amazed at how the colors were basically identical- ELF definitely had the Ammo palette in mind when creating this palette. Its super pigmented and the eyeshadows you get are pretty darn huge- I love the size. My only complaint is the white shadow on the first row, left corner- its really powdering and shimmery- more shadow falls off your eye onto your cheeks then actually going on your eyelid. But other than that one color, I love this palette!! Also, for those who don't like shimmery eyeshadows, this ones not for you, after all it is called the Sparkle eye edition for a reason :) Hope this helps and thanks for reading!!
