Most Helpful Positive Review Great palette for the price!
This Elf palette is very beautiful! I love this palette! For drugstore, I think the price is worth it. Use a coupon or a code and you can get it even cheaper than $20!! I bought it for $16!! Love the concept of decorating your own palette. The formula of the shadows can be inconsistent but they work. As far as blending, you can get it done just make sure to pack the shadow and blend , blend, blend! Do not pick up too much product! !! Also, I would not recommend concealer as a base because my eyeshadow came out patchy. Once I put an eyeshadow primer, the look was 100 percent better! You need eyeshadow primer!! Also, I find the shimmers work better with your finger and not a brush(or you can wet your brush). There is fallout so make sure to do your eyeshadow before your foundation. Fall out isn't a deal breaker for me, just wanted to let people know. There is a learning process with this palette. Overall, I recommend. Jkissa did a great job! The overall message is super sweet!
Most Helpful Critical Review Workable, but Not Great
For the price and amount of shadows you are getting I'd say this palette is okay, not amazing. I was hesitant to buy this palette given my okay at best experience with ELF shadows. However, plenty of YouTube reviews praised the quality and had only good things to say, which is soooooo misleading. The palette itself looks gorgeous and I love the monochromatic arrangement of the columns, it's very pleasing to the eye. My biggest issues are how chalky the shadows are and the low colour payoff. It takes a lot of building up to get even an okay amount of pigment on the lids. They do not blend easily, but are okay in that regard. The shimmers are gorgeous, however, are not near opaque. They work okay on their own, but better on top of shades. It takes time, but you can get nice looks from these shadows. Primer or a base is definitely necessary. Honestly though, I'd recommend buying from other affordable brands if you are looking for colorful eyeshadows.

Rainbow shimmer 🌈🤩
Cat from PA
I bought this for Pride. A great rainbow palette. Some of the matte shades are a bit patchy, but the shimmers are GORGEOUS and so incredibly pigmented. Overall a fun palette to play with that supports a great cause.
Licia from Hayward CA
I love this pallet so much. I don't get why people are complaining about this pallet not being pigmented, I've used all the shades and they're all bomb but maybe it's the technique that I use? Not sure. The shimmers are definitely the best part though. I would for sure recommend :)
great rainbow palette!
Dawson from Des Moines
its a great rainbow palette for the price and fantastic for people wishing to dip into a bit of color!
Came broken, twice. Shade Confetti.
Courtney from Mesa
Overall a beautiful palette! I ordered it to the first time and the shade confetti was broken. No big deal so I fixed it but still emailed for another one. When that one came it was broken as well, same shade. I fixed it best I could and have it to my step sister. Not sure if it's just how the color is pressed or formulated but still so beautiful. I highly recommend getting it IF it comes into stores.

E.L.F has really stepped up their game with this palette. Jkissa is my favorite youtuber, so when this launched I knew I had to get it. Yesterday, I did halo eyeshadow look and after 8hrs, the eyeshadows still looked like I had just put them on! The shadows are so pigmented and gorgeous. My favorite color is "Bailey" but they all work and blend like a dream.
Does not work out for skin tones past fairest of them all
Lani K from California
So I ordered it in June and I was so excited after seeing these searches but when I finally got and I used the whole first row as a look, the color didn't show up one bit on my eyes even when I put on a concealer that literally is a white base.... so major disappointment with this..... I reallly love elf they have a bunch of great products but this is not one of them.
Crystal from San Francisco, CA
I think it's fair to assume this is the best elf eyeshadow palette! I tried this and then the elf bite size palettes, and was waaaay more impressed with the to the rescue palette. The mattes and shimmers are both gorgeous and blend so easily. I was blown away given the price. Hello pigment!
Perfect colorful palette!!!
Colorful palette from Silver Spring
At first I was going back and forth whether I should buy this palette....I decided to order it!! It came within 3 days in good condition!
The palette is to die for!!! Love everything! The colors are perfect and pigmented!! The size of the palette is also great because it's easy to travel with. Overall I'm obsessed with the colors and the fact that I can add stickers to them! It makes a perfect gift for someone as well!
Miss Mary from Central Texas
I passed on the first jkissa x elf situation as the color story didn't speak to my heart, but this? So fun! The Earth and Ocean palette and the new bite sized little guys have really changed my mind around as I haven't been too impressed with ELF shadows before! Guys, it's terrific. I'm yet to find a bad one in the bunch. I guess the reds could have a little more punch? But now I'm nitpicking. I just love it. And the stickers and packaging pretty much means it's going to be THE bright palette I keep.
KL from Florida
This is the first and last time I purchase online. They changed the delivery days on me several times and the right side of the pallet is destroyed
Andrea from Fort Worth, TX
I love it. It is so vibrant. The colors are great. My only two notes are that the yellow doesn't show up very well and the blue shimmer is crumbly. But because the rest of the palette is so great, i can over look those two things.
Eyeshadow lover from USA
If you love colorful shadow, this is for you! I really like this palette! I love the message behind it as well. The price point is great, and the shadows are gorgeous! The blues and purples are definitely a little more difficult to work with, but once applied look gorgeous and stay all day. I also love that they turned the plastic cover for the eyeshadows into a sticker sheet for you to customize your own palette! Definitely a favorite from ELF!
very cute palette and a heart warming concept
Alex from CA
I love the color story of the palette and the concept is base on love and care for her dogs and the dogs from the shelter. If you have some problem working with the palette,I have couple suggestion on how I made it work. First, have an unset base so the mattes hold on better, apply with the patting and blend the edges technique.
I don't recommend doing the blend and layer technique because it can get really patchy and shadows might blend away when trying to layer the mattes on one another. I like all the shimmers they are all very pretty! The shade Tsuki doesn't have a strong base color, it is more like a smooth glitter top coat or an inner corner highlight.

this has been so much fun to play with and great quality. i love that i was able to have lots of color in my makeup collection without a high end price tag.

I LOVE IT the shadows blend super nice and those shimmer glitters really shine!!
I love this palette except for
Ceara from Brooklyn, Ny
This palette overall is amazing; I think elf and jkissa did a good job with this collab. The shades in the palette are good. I only have trouble with two shades and that's Tsuki and Cannoli. I was very disappointed in the shade Tsuki because it's a shimmer and it has no pigment at all. Also, the shade Cannoli just need a lot more work when it comes down to blending. All of the other shades are amazing. My favorites shades are the yellow shades in the palette. They are super pigmented and blended so well. Another thing is one of my shades came broken unfortunately but I think this palette is super dope especially for the price point.
pam from nj
I love this palette! I am someone who doesnt really use color a lot so when I use this palette I go all monochromatic which is the best way to use this in my opinion if you are scared of color :) I pretty much have every single elf palette as I am a huge fan, i think this one is truly unique and worth it especially for the price!
SHE WENT THERE!! SHE KILLED IT!!
Alex from Wisconsin
I love jkissa so much and waited to long to get the first round last year. I was kinda disappointed that this is just a rainbow palette, bc I have other rainbow palettes in my collection (coloured raine vivid pigments and sugarpill fun size). But this is a great, unique palette! Especially the darker shades and the shimmers!! And this is such a good cause and the stickers are so fun! I'm waiting to get a job so I can spend money to get memey cat stickers to put all over it lol. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Arrived broken twice

The first pallette I received had a broken color and the replacement pallette had the same color broken.

I love this palette! The shadows are so pigmented and the shimmers are STUNNING ❤️
Beautiful Burst of Color!
Karlita from San Antonio TX
I use the NYX white base pencil before applying the shadow. The color pop is amazing! They shadow pick and apply easily with a brush or pencil. I was pleasantly surprised. It was my first time using Elf shadows. The color story drew me in. I'm so glad I picked it up.
Jackie from Michigan
These colors are so beautiful! Perfect if you want fun colors for your eyeshadow, and this will be the only palette you'll need. They blend out nicely, and the shimmers can be more sheer or built up to full color. A couple of the shimmer shades were broken in shipping, but I was able to repress them with alcohol and they seem to be performing great. If you're looking for colorful eyeshadow, get this palette!
Have to work with it..
Valery < 3 from Washington State
So I was very hesitant to purchase this because it's a cute palette but the payoff and pigment is what you have to look up for. I tried using this with my clear base and nope definitely use a really light concealer. Worked way better that way. Some of the shimmers weren't so bright like I expected to be :( some of the matte shades did not have much pigment for example Millie was very hard to work with the more I tried to blend the more it'll fade.. all in all I'd give this a 3/5. The concept of this palette was very cute! And this collab felt genuine.
I Love This Palette so Much!!
Elsa from NJ - New Jersey
I am not a colorful makeup person, this is my first rainbow palette. And it is amazing pigmented, bright colors, glitters are beautiful . I cannot stop using it and so happy that we are approaching summer to really have fun with it.
