My new love--palette

So this is my new love.. the elf warm black beauty book
contains 28 eyeshadows and 20 lip colors..

To be honest i've never liked lip palettes.. but this one is really nice very moiturizing with enough color payoff for me.. the bottom row on the lip side is pigmented.
the eyeshadows have three finishes, matte, satin, and shimmer/frost .. some of the mattes aren't pigmented and thats okay i didn't have much hopes for those as most companies including mac don't ever get those super pigmented.. but the color payoff was amazing in my opinion for the cost.. they were great ..

the above photo has swatches of the eyeshadows so you can see i used a Q-tip to do the swatches. I swatched a variety of finishes. honestly the ones that look a bit faint are the matte colors... but check out that RED its of a satin finish its one of the best reds i've ever encountered in my life.  The other red that i know is super pigmented is from Inglot. The red alone in this palette makes this palette a must have. This is super nice to travel with and its pigmented enough that you can take it :) and it has a really nice size mirror.
For those interested in purchasing this palette and you live in Trinidad you can check Haléner Rustique
cost is $50ttd and you can also enter their blog giveaway to get the cool version to this palette (i haven't used that one as yet--review will come )
For those in the US you can check elf's

Is this palette affordable?  for $50ttd or $5usd.. its amazing
Is this palette worth the buy.. oh yes it does the eyeshadows alone are worth the buy.. with that red...the browns are great too..Would i repurchase .. yes i would if and whenever it finishes :)
Would i recommend this palette.. oh yes i would.. i suggest you all go and get yourself one of these.. "go get you some!!"
