Tip for the Day: My Elianto 10x e/s Palette

I am in love with all my eyeshadows and I wanted all of them to have a good home as much as possible. I have my MAC pro palette and I am happy with it. (still filling it up at the moment). As seen in my previous haul, I've purchased 4 Ulta eyeshadows and for someone who needs to travel with their make-up and with such small traincase space, I really love depotting my e/s! But where shall I put them? I can't put them in my MAC pro palette as Ulta shadows, Elianto and the Face Shop e/s are all bigger than the regular MAC e/s size.

Good thing I've found a very good palette home to my bigger e/s! The Elianto 10pcs e/s palette!

It's very simple, it's sleek, it's black, it's pretty...

** Available at all Elianto stores for Php350.00 (approx $8.00)


Elianto has a couple of other "kinds" of eyeshadow and blushes palette. I chose this one because this is very slim and affordable! All palettes from Elianto are not magnetic, so you can either choose : Foam type (to fit the e/s in) or the Sticker type (wherein you'll use a double sided tape to tape your e/s inside. I chose the Foam Type, here's how it looks like inside...



Since I'm "no ordinary" gal, I wanted to decorate my simple palette, I was trying to find a big sticker big enough for the whole palette, but to no avail, I can't seem to find any at that moment and I am in desperation to be creative (yes, if something came up to my mind, I have to acknowledge it right away or else..bye bye ideas! lol), I went to the National Bookstore and went to the "scrapbooking" section and bought "border" stickers instead. As seen below, the designs are different but what the heck? I want it unique and creative!!! Thanks to my hubby for helping me cut this so perfectly...if I did this on my own...well..I won't even post it! LOL



Here's a photo with my depotted Ulta eyeshadows!!! I need more more more!!!! LOL (well specifically 6 more! lol)



What other e/s can fit in here...?
Aside from the Face Shop, Elianto and Ulta?
You know what I'm thinking? If I can't fit them all, I'll just put my NYX single e/s in there!
Maybe...cut the foam or something....
But......I am still hoping to be able to buy more Ulta e/s for now! lol

  2. Hi Alyssa, I believe it's a Malaysian brand :) They opened up shops quite a number of Asian countries already :)

  3. Elianto is actually a Korean brand :) I have a 6-colour palette, but didn't decorate it like you did. Well done!

  4. Tine, really? Thanks for the correct info! I get soo confused! when i go to shops and ask them, they'll tell me it's Malaysian brand, I guess because their HQ is in KL! Even their website is confusing! gosh, but I do remember reading one blog, I think from ParisB or someone else, that this is a korean brand! Gosh I am more confused than ever! thanks Tine :)

  12. oh my gosh! i'm so excited :) a fellow nikki + a filipino blogger? that's pretty awesome.

    and the palette looks soo cool! even with your decorations :)
    i really need to buy one of those. i'm slowly getting into the make-up scene. one day i will soon be able to buy mac pans! they're so expensive!

    so you live in the PI? how long have you lived there? and where do you get all of your products?

  13. cute cover! you're so creative! it looked cute even before you covered it though

    ReplyDelete
  14. Shen shen, yeah ! I'm joining the Elianto bandwagon! lol...

    Nikki, yes, another Nikki and I've been living in PI all my life! You bet that MAC is so expensive, all cosmetics are expensive down here, but yeah, I got most of my products here, and the others, well, I either order online or ask my friends who are in the states to help me buy! :)

    Incandescent, yeah, I love it even if it isn't covered, but you know me! LOL i want to smile everytime I pick the palette up! :)

  15. hi nikki!
    thanks for your review about elianto palette. i've been thinking about buying it.. :) and i jz knew that TFS and ULTA single e/s can fit into that palette (although i dont have ULTA single e/s but at least make me feel better to know that other brand can fit in)
    and u did a good job with the decoration!!
    i've seen some other newer version of the palette, it's white colour with some cute images on the lid. have u seen it?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maria, hi, thanks for the visit and the comment, yes other brands fit, that's why it's worth it, the worst could happen is you can just remove the foam altogether and you can fit more e/s! :) Yes, I've seen the white version but i like the black ones as it's slimmer and sleeker! the white ones have mirrors, so it's bulky :) but it does look cute! :)

  17. Hehe.. This cute palette will be encouraging you to fill up the empty slots. Ahh.. I remember National Bookstore, I use to hang out there in hs during lunch time.. lemming Sweet valley high books.

  18. That's a great palette! The original flower patter is cute and so is your DIY version!

    I got my first empty palette just a while ago, the MAC pro palette. Since I didn't have any MAC shadows and the ones I did have were of various sizes and shapes, I ended up taking out the 'tray'.

  19. the palette is so cute and I love the way you decorated it. You're evry creative!

  20. JieJie, true, everytime I look at the palette, i wanted to hit my head for not ordering more! LOL coz I personally never used ULTA e/s so I want to make sure they are really of good quality before I buy more! So far, I love them! So i'm hitting myself why I didn't order more! Now the chance has passed, i don't have friends coming back home :(

    Liz, I know! the original version is so cute! I dont' know why the creative side of me wanted to do something on it! LOL OOOoohhh you got yourself a mac pro palette? That darn palette is addicting as well, I want to fill them all up!!!! I plan to buy another palette just for the NYX e/s single, hehehe still thinking :)

  21. Gio? trust me! I'm not that creative! lol I get to be creative just for my make-up! LOL it has to do with passion I guess *winks*

    ReplyDelete
  22. doesn't it have a tendency for the e/s to fall out since it's just in foam? that is scary for me 'cause am a bit clumsy lol. but it's nice if you can fit in other e/s sizes. :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That's such a creative idea. I luv the design, it looks so sleek :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Mhean, no you won't have problems with it as the foam is not the flimsy kind of quality, it is of good quality and i even had a hard time pressing it in as it is very tight! it fits PERFECTLY!!! this is way better than the "double sided tape" one..you'll love this! Sis Shen has this as well! and she filled it all in!

    ebeautyblog, awww thanks, I love to be called creative coz I'm never the creative one in the family! LOL (i'm such a loser lol) Are you creative girl?

  25. I'm asking my cousin to buy me the palette. Which one exactly is that...? I saw that they have 40 empty palette..will that fit Ulta e/s as well?

    ReplyDelete
  26. HI Abigail, thanks so much for visiting. All Elianto e/s palette can fit ULTA eyeshadows, just make sure to look for the EYESHADOW palette as they have blush palettes as well :) I'm not sur eif the 40empty palette are all eyeshadows, I believe they've got mixed with blushes as well :) so ask your cousin to check on it :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Elianto. very affordable. Going to buy the e/s! :D Anyway, it is a Malaysian brand, but they have their products to be manufactured in Korea. So, might be mistaken as Korean products. Huhu. Thats what hv been heard from their launching ceremony. :)

  28. OMGoodness....I love your palettes. I've been looking for inexpensive empty palettes that can hold my Ulta e/s and MAC pro palette doesn't do the help though. I'm so frustrated about looking for empty palettes. Is there a way I could buy these Elianto palettes here in the US? Btw, I'm a Filipina who recently moved here in the U.S. I guess when I left PI, they don't have Elianto stores yet...I'm not so sure though

    ReplyDelete
  29. Erinulat, thanks so much! THat's a wonderful information! I am sorry that it sounds like a Korean Brand now because it's manufactured in Korea. Thanks for the info. Now I know :)

    Katie, just for you to know, this palette doesnt' fit the MAC e/s , just the bigger ones like ULTA :) and Stila e/s! :)
