Makeup Revolution x Elf Review

Today, I have a Christmas makeup review for you. This is Elf's 20th Anniversary collaboration with Makeup Revolution. One of my favorite Christmas movies of all time, so I had to get a lot of the products from this collaboration. I have 5 items in total to share with you.

"Santa! OMG!" 9 Pan Shadow Palette Box

The Front Of The Palette

Palette With Eyeshadows

9 dazzling holiday inspired colors in a festive fluffy compact. Unfortunately, these shades do not have any names because this is a small palette. There is both neutral and bold tones, and shimmer and matte shades. Perfect for the holiday season.


I was surprised that there were no shades of green in this palette, being his whole outfit is green like an elf. When swatching these shades, the colors came off as being very light. I needed to swatch them at least 3 or 4 times to really see the pigment. I love the combination of the glitter and matte shades. There are endless amounts of looks I can create. This eyeshadow palette is $11.98, not a bad price for a special collaboration piece you can add to your makeup collection.

"Does Someone Need A Hug?" Micellar Cleansing Water

The only way to take off your festive glam this season. This Elf Micellar cleanser, with a refreshingly sweet candy cane scent, gently removes makeup and impurities from the skin. How to use: For best results, apply micellar cleanser to a removal pad and sweep across the face to melt your makeup away. You can also use to clean and refresh skin after cleanser. Safe for sensitive, dry, oily and all skin types. Cruelty-free and vegan.

NYC Skyscraper Lengthening Mascara

Make your lashes skyscraper high with the NYC Mascara. A jet-black formula encased in an Empire State Building-inspired tube. Lift and lengthen your lashes to make your eyes pop at any holiday party.

"Santa!" Festive Red High Shine Lip Gloss

This lip-gloss will make your lips shine and sparkle and most important leave them with nourishing hydration after every use. Warning: this red is very bright. Be prepared for a bold look. Cruelty-free and vegan.

My First Look I Created

I love the eyeshadow palette; all of the shades are such gorgeous colors. I went with the shiny silver in the middle of the bottom row for my first look, and I love how it turned out. The mascara applies perfectly. Not too thin or clumpy. Really extends my lashes beautifully. The red lip-gloss is very bold. You have to really light a bright red lip to love this lip-gloss. It comes off easily at the end of the day and does not stain your lips one bit. The micellar cleansing water removes the makeup very effectively. I recommend pouring it onto a cotton ball when using it, and lastly, the makeup bag is just too cute to pass up. It says his most famous line from the movie right on it. I highly recommend all 5 of these items.

Final Thoughts:

I love this collection simply because of the packaging and the spirit of Christmas it holds. Elf is such a fun tradition in our family. Watching it every year leading up to Christmas. The movie holds so much joy and laughter for me. I would buy all of these products just because of that. Everything in this collection is so affordable; therefore, I highly recommend purchasing from it.
