I love the elf 32 pc eyeshadow palettes, yes you do need a primer for the eyeshadows, they are powdery, and not all the eyeshadows are awesome, but for the price and the amount eyeshadows that work well, I think you find more hits than misses with these palettes. I love that you can get an eyeshadow palette with a good variety of colors under $10. I have 6 of these palettes and I love the nude toned ones. For what you are paying you can't expect the shadows to be buttery and pigmented (some are, but not to the extent of mad for matte). Highly recommend for someone looking to branch out color wise, or if you just love neutrals.
It's fair to say that most of the shadows are actually quite decent, although they were also a bit chalky. Pay-off was fine, and they blend VERY well. At least 6 colors are really chalky and suffer from a chronic lack of pigmentation. On the plus side, they had no blending issues but you have to expect that given that there's really not a whole lot to blend to begin with. It's a good starter palette, but nothing to write home about. But you really can't beat the price!
