83 Piece Essential Makeup Collection is rated 4.0571 out of 5 by 105.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice makeup palette! The palette is nice to have for a wide range, however it wasn't for me. I liked how it looked in the picture, but when I got the palette I did not expect it to be so small. I also did not really like the color choices. I already have an elf neutral palette and the other options were mostly blues, pinks, and purples which doesn't offer a whole lot of variety. I wish I went with my gut and got the white instead, but I fell for what I call the black, sleek design. The products work good so I can't complain there. It is a good palette it just wasn't for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from For the price! I had this palette for about 2 years and never used it. I decided to open it a few months ago, and try some eye shadows on. I really like it! The shadows are powdery so be careful smudging your brush on them. The pigment is good, they last all day long (without primer),and the bronzers and blushes are great. The lip glosses  are not good, they are not very pigmented at all. Con: the case is hard to open, you need a pointy object to open the case. For the price is a  great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice variety There are lots of shades I'm super excited to try in here that seem nicely pigmented and plenty of neutrals for everyday occasions. Would give it 5 stars, but the case itself is a bit difficult to open and one of the pins keeps trying to fall out of a hinge. Overall a great set for a beginner (especially with blushes and bronzers)!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MUST BUY! My friend gave this to me about a year ago because she never used it, and at first I didn't think I would like it but it turns out that I absolutely love it. Everyones saying that its messy but if your gentle with it and you take care of it that shouldn't be a problem. It's also unbelievably pigmented which is surprising due to the pricing. The eyeshadows are powdery but not in anyway chalky. Apply just a tiny amount for a look that will last all day. Im not really a fan of lipgloss or lipstick that isn't in a tube (don't ask why) so I never really put use into the lip section. However the blush colors are beautiful. The two bases are a little dark for me so I usually use them for contouring or maybe even highlighting. The bronze shades are dark and if applied to harshly WILL NOT BLEND. Only a small amount is needed. You definitley need to try this palette, it's personally my favorite.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not-So-Great Palette I bought this palette, excited that it was only $20 from Marshall's.  After using it for a couple of months, I love how pigmented the colors of the eyeshadows are, however, a couple of the bristles on the larger brushes would break extremely easily, leaving small pieces on the face.  The palette smells strange, and the bronzers do not blend well.  The palette has beautiful colors, but has more negatives than positives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this before Christmas, and I love it! It's perfect. Only bad thing is the brushes were horrible, I threw them out and I use my other elf brushes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love everything kind of... I bought this a couple of months ago and love it  so much i love everything about it except for the bronze. It makes my face feel oily and not naturally. The bronze doesnt blend in but i live everything about it the eyeshadow is amazing and perfectly pigmented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Must BUY!! I got this palette as a part of a three pallette offer including the large size 141 piece pallette and the small 27 piece palette. My only complaint is that this palette is hard to open, I have to use a screwdriver to open it. As far as the makeup goes, I absoutely love it. I also purchased foundation and eyelid primer due to reading the reviews before my purchase. There is nothing that I suggest that makes this product any better. All of the makeup was easy to apply and stayed on all day long. The brushes aren't high quality but I have my own so it wasn't that big of a deal to me. I highly reccomend this product. The price is great (I got mine at a 50% discount which makes it even more of a great value). I am going to purchase this palette for Christmas Gifts. You will not be disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best elf has to offer I used to use this on a daily basis for school. Reason being it was the only palette I had that had the colors I wanted, but the eye shadows themselves were very powdery and just acceptably pigmented. Same goes for the blushes and bronzers. The lip colors were ok but had very little color. Then one day, I dropped it literally a couple inches onto carpet, and the hinge broke on the slider things, and the mirror broke, and a lot of the eye shadows. Very disappointing, will not buy again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love It! I now own both the black and the white version of this palette. I Love both and would recommend them to anyone. I just recently purchased the white version of this palette. There may be a few dupes in eyeshadows or lipglosses, but overall the colors are very different between the two palettes. I do not however believe that the color pigmentation is as good on the white palette as it is on the black palette. I discovered that if I use my shimmer palette over my primer, before I use the eyeshadow it increases pigmentation. I would say if you are looking for a great pigmentation on it's own in eyeshadows, you will not get it from the white palette. However if you are willing to use another product to increase pigmentation then this palette could work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still own this kit and use it everyday I bought this product over a year ago and I love it. I use it every day, the pigment is good for the value- since I go for natural with a hint of color anyway so if you want to super crayon color your face you're probably better off with something more expensive. I love the eyeshadows, blushes, and bronzer but don't use the lip stuff much. Loved it so much I bought one for my niece. I will buy it again in a couple years when I need a new one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it - perfect for just starting out I wish I knew what colours I was using so I could order full size versions!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soooo Dissapointed I got this palette for Christmas and I loved it. I used it every day, for everything! Then, one day I drop it, lightly, ON CARPET, and the mirror shattered, the slider thingys broke, and all the eyeshadows were everywhere. Cheaply made, tsk tsk E.L.F

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 83 piece V/S 141 piece --A war of colors First, I love all the products in the palettes. The shadows come in a range of colors, neutral shades included and are highly pigmented. A little goes a long way. Both palettes come with several shades of blushes, bronzers and lip gloss. Of course the 141 piece set has more eye shadow colors but the smaller 83 piece collection is fabulous. The blushes are NOT duplicated, each palette is different and while the shades might be similar they are not identical. The bronzers however are the same. I love the bronzers and they do include a matte/non-shimmery color that is perfect for contouring or used to fill in the brows. What I don't like is that the shadows are very soft and easily shift when the sponge-tipped applicators are pressed into it. This causes a lot of wasted product AND this loose shadow can then mix into the lip glosses. Overall I think the design should be rearranged so that the glosses are on top to avoid this "tainting" of colors. I love the quality and quantity but in the future will only order one palette (the 141 piece since it has more for a great price). I got lucky and scored the trio of palettes during a special so I gave them all a trial run. I was not disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it...just one problem I love this..its great and i will probably not have to buy eyeshadow for another 20 years haha but one thing really bothers me,THE SMELL. I love E.L.F cosmetics but the smell of their eyeshadow needs to change. I try to ignore it but the smell is just unbearable. Please fix this..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect Its fine i like it alot. The only thing is on the right side in the second column at the bottom my eyeshadow brush touched it and it came broke up and was very chalky idk maybe it was just mine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from pretty awesome Everything was great except the brushes were not good quality and the lip colors weren't very pigmented. I use this stuff all the time, literally!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from this is an ok pallet the bronzers in this pallet are excellent, thats about all. the blushes are way to shimmery and powdery and the shadows are almost like pure talc. the lip glosses are not pigmented at all, they are terrible, and the whole pallet is so powdery it just makes a mess when you try to use it. buy the shadows and blushes seperatly you will be better off i still love my elf products though, just not a fan of this one

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So happy I got this ! This was much more than I expected. The colors are great and I love the blushes. It has one blush that is very light and has a slight shine so it works really good for a highlighter. the lip colors great as well with a variety of colors. The only negative thing I have to say is the eye shadows and blushes are so fine that they turn in to really loose powder that can mix with the other colors. Still glad I bought this!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kinda disappointed :( Love Elf products but was disappointed with this product from the start, luckily I got it when it was on sale. I ordered this product and first opening it was a struggle. I had to get tweezers to open. Once I finally opened the lid, i noticed bronzer everywhere. One of the bronzers had broken and gotten all over the case. Contacted Elf and they did sent me a replacement. You can't use the brushes that come with the product, they make it very chalky and the lipsticks aren't pigmented at all. With the an eye primer and another brush, the colors actually stay on well although some aren't true to color. I would not recommend this product to a friend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected The eyeshadows were incredibly chalky. The lip glosses were waxy. The colours came out muted and were not as all pigmented. The face brush cannot be closed inside without the plastic sleeve, or it'll crush the fibres the wrong way. The box was extremely hard to open; I had to get pliers. I liked the bronzers and blushes. Overall, I would not purchase this again, although I do love some ELF stuff.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not awesome I'm so glad I got this during the special where it was 90% off, because it really isn't all that great. Half the eyeshadows are soft and powder very easily and half off them are super hard and difficult to get even the slightest bit, and the pigmentation is so irregular you never know how it will show up. The lip colours are barely pigmented and are basically just poor quality gloss, the blush looks chalky, and the bronzers crumble at the slightest touch. Even the packaging is terrible, you have to use something to pry it open and after only a few weeks of owning it the blush/eyeshadow side broke right off! As much as I love ELF, I'll never buy this pallet again

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for starters I think this is a perfect gift. This was my first kit/collection from elf, so I was pleased with what I got. The pigmentation in the eyeshadows and bronzers are great. One thing that I didn't like so much were the lipglosses. They were kind of hard/dryish, and took a while to get some on the brush. But, overall this was a really good starter collection :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dissapointed I was really excited about receiving this in the mail. I got it in finally, and the right eyeshadow and lipgloss slide wouldnt slide over, so it wouldnt show the lipglosses or the two right bronzers. It was stuck or glued or something. Then it just popped off. Dont get me wrong the colors are great but the product is poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from surprisingly good. this is such a great pallet. the color pigmentation is unreal. it is super pigmented, you need a light tap with your brush and you can work with the little product it picked up. the blushes and bronzers are great as well. the only thing i found that didnt work were the lip products, but thats sort of expected. the eyeshadows have a really good color range, and the best part is that is compact. great for traveling.
