Rated 4.58 out of 5 stars
I picked up all the shades of these as soon as I saw them launch. Elf has been killing it lately with their eye shadow formula. I was not disappointed in picking up all 8 shade options. They are all very pigmented and apply to the eyes so easily and blend very well. These are great to pack when traveling. They are smaller than I expected, but I know I will never use up all of the shadows anyway. Elf PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come out with more options of these in the future. Maybe a neon brights, a teals, a duochromes, and whatever else your little hearts desire. They are amazing. I highly highly highly recommend them to everyone even glancing at them. Pick them up you won't be disappointed.
These are super cute, great for a small travel kit, and good for the price. I found the metallics to really be super pigmented and beautiful, but the mattes were very shear. You might be able to build the mattes, but it would take quite a bit of effort. I did not think any of the colors were very bendable. You really had to work at it, and the end result still wasn't that great.
The main flaw for me was that these pigments seemed to highlight fine lines (even lines on my eyelid I've never seen before!) I'm sure most of this is operator error since I am not skilled at putting on makeup, but I just couldn't get these to work. I might use them as a highlighter or a dab on either side of my eye for some sparkle, but I would not do a full eye look with these shadows.
However, please note that my only other eyeshadows are Pat McGrath, so my idea of what is good quality and bendable is probably skewed.

elf never fails to please us with their products! i bought cream and sugar and i used the lighter glitter as inner corner highlight and the warmer glitter as my nose highlight. love this mini pallete, and it was so cheap!

I got this eyeshadow quad in Cream & Sugar, and the colors are gorgeous neutrals! The eyeshadows are very pigmented and only 3 bucks, so that's a win win! The downside of this is that the palette breaks easily.

These little guys are so nice for travel (or anytime, really) and have all the shades you need in one consolidated package. They go on smoothly and don't crease, even without an eyeshadow primer.

Got 2 pallets of these and I had the same experience with both. They both break VERY easily, some shades are pigmented while some shades are patchy and dull. I havent tried wearing it all day, but based on the quality, I'm guessing it wouldn't last very long.
I bought the rose water, cream &sugar, pumpkin pie, and berry bad bite size palettes- they're all amazing! Great pigment and quality eyeshadow for an affordable price!
Love these little Elf palettes! They're easy for travel and great for everyday use! An affordable price for quality eyeshadow

For 3 bucks, I have to give this 5 stars. I was a bit skeptical at first cause when I swatched the colors they looked very ashy but they are wonderful on the eye using a brush. I love you a latte is a perfect and complete neutral mini palette. I got it cause lots of my larger palettes did not have appropriate transition shades for me, so I thought I would just use this as a companion to other palettes, turns out I love this and reach for it for everyday/day time looks all the time. It's so effortless and I am obsessed with how small it it is
THELMA from FL
I just loved the colors and the size of the palette.
Donna from Louisville KY
Really like the colors, but wish it came with an applicator.
BeautyMasterNoemi from Nampa Idaho
I really like this eyeshadow. Its small and portable and blends easly. I would defenitly buy this again and try the diferent colors.
AC from Tennessee
I got the açaí one and returned it and now Ulta emailed me to tell me to write this review. It is not nice and blue like it seems. It looks dark grey when applied and it was not pretty. Also it wasn't opaque enough
Eli from Orange County, California
Lovely palette to bring out brown eyes. The metallic shades have better color payoff than the matte ones-this is consistent with another color in this series as well. It is difficult to make out in the store, but the dark color is a dark purple with some shimmer but not metallic. For the best results, use over a primer or concealer.
Kelley from Mississippi
This is my all time favorite eye shadow palette! I always get compliments when I wear it and the colors are beautiful!
Pritzy from Ohio
I use these as eyeshadow and liner. Colors are great and stay on all day.
Sarah from Ohio
Love the colors, perfect size for my on the go makeup purse. Wears nicely.
Alice from Yuma, AZ
I like neutral eyeshadow, but I rarely use all of the colors in a palette. I usually only use one or two. I tested this palette and I like all of the colors in the palette.

I am so glad I decided to try this Bite Size Palette from Elf. The colors blend so easily and it's a fantastic on the go size.
Anaserre from Dallas
For under 5$ this is amazing! The shimmers are beautiful, the dark brown is patchy , but workable ..for such a low price it's all good. I'm definitely going to try the other palettes . Get it!
Emma from Chicago, IL
I love these eye shadows! So surprisingly pigmented and wash to use. I for açaí me and I love the soft blues to add a pop of color and bring out my gray eyes
Michelle from Los Angeles, CA
(got rose water palette) imo this palette is better suited to those with fair/light skin tones! the lightest shade offers the most subtle but still perfect base for the other shimmers (which aren't beamingly bright, kind of a satin shimmer... still pretty and sparkly, perfect for everyday). minus the plummy black, this palette creates a really soft, muted and pretty pink-purple look. ideal for those who want an effortless and delicate eyeshadow look with a spring seasonal color story.
i haven't tried using the darkest shade as an eyeshadow because doing so would drastically amp up the intensity of my eyeshadow look, which isn't the vibe i'm typically going for with this palette. but i do use it as an eyeliner since i always use eyeshadow for liner anyway. it's not overly pigmented, which i prefer, and it's easy enough to work with so that i can clean it up or blend it. it's a matte shadow with glitters (i never get why brands do this formula tbh) but you can't see them once the shadow's applied and blended out.
i've brought this palette along for two trips and it's perfect! everything i've just mentioned + sturdy packaging + compact size... love love love. not super interested in the other color stories as of today but i'll keep my eyes peeled for unique color stories in potential future releases :)
