e.l.f. Bite Size Mini Eyeshadow “Berry Bad” – Review, Swatches and Looks

I love a good bargain and *live* when that bargain turns out to be a great product. I’ve used e.l.f. products for as long as I can remember for that very reason. The prices are very affordable and sometimes you find an absolute gem (I’m looking at you Putty Primer and Studio Eyeshadow “C” Brush).

Today I’m reviewing the much talked about e.l.f. Bite Size Mini Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Berry Bad.

This eyeshadow quad retails for a mere $4 CAD/$3 USD and contains four eyeshadows – 2 mattes and 2 metallics for a combined 3.5 g of product. It comes housed in standard plastic packaging with a clear top and is super tiny. It’s about 3 inches long and 1 inch tall, so it will be easy to pack in your travel bag once it’s safe to travel again.

For this review, I did two looks – the first one with both the mattes and the second one with both the metallics. If I was wearing this palette to go out into the world I would have done one matte in the crease and one metallic shadow on the lid, but separating the looks by finish ensured that the prominent look of the metallics didn’t make the mattes disappear.

The mattes blended easily and are give a more demure look.

The metallics can be applied with a brush or your fingertip to give a powerful colour payoff. As with many metallics, there is some fallout although not a ton. To avoid this being an issue, I do my eyes before my foundation so I can easily wipe it away with my trusty Garnier Micellar Water. While the metallic pink is just that, the metallic copper has a little bit of silver micro glitter.

With the extensive range of products that e.l.f. releases on the regular, it is expected that some will be a smashing hit and others will be an absolute miss. I’m delighted to say that this quad is a hit for a drugstore eyeshadow. While it doesn’t possess the quality of a high-end brand like a Natasha Denona or Viseart, it’s one of the better eyeshadows I’ve used from the drugstore. And the $4 price tag makes it that much better. I can’t wait to try out the 7 other quads from this launch.
