Psssttt, we’ve got a secret! But we’re telling you anyway – e.l.f. Cosmetics released two NEW Aqua Beauty Cushion Eyeshadow palettes today! Wanna know why it’s a secret?? On their insta story, e.l.f. said these crazy beautiful babes are launching tomorrow but we checked the website & they’re totally available NOW! So, basically, you get this little perk for being a Makeup FOMO friend 🙂 you’re welcome! Grab one (or both) before the general public starts snatching them up tomorrow!
Both of these palettes are a solid follow up to their recently released Sculpting Silk Eyeshadow palettes but these ones only come in two shade combinations, Cool Mist (on the left) and Island Breeze (on the right). The first palette is all about the cool tones and we know some of you just LOVE that! We’re so into the color combination of blues & teals with mauves & reddish purples! Island Breeze is more on the warm side, featuring incredible peachy, gold and neutral tones. We can totally see the uniqueness in both of these palette and seriously, every shade is SO complimentaty.
The formula of these is what’s going to get you – because they’re part of the Aqua Beauty line, they’ve been formulated with a soft, cushion texture (woah! We’re thinking maybe something like Colourpop Super Shock Shadows, ehh??). Their almost mousse-y (but not) formula allows for a dewy look on the eyes which is literally all of what we need for summer – think of it as feeling & applying as light and blendable as a powder but as easy to use and work into the skin as a cream. Sounds amazing, right?! The only possible downside to each is that ALL shades are either satin or shimmer finishes so you may find yourself reaching for another palette to create your complete look. But hey, in typical e.l.f., fashion, each palette is only $12 so we’re totally not complaining!
