To kick off my swatch fest of new Elf products, I decided to start with Elf Eyeshadow Swatches as I’ve had the most requests and the most products! They are definitely something I would want to see swatted as well as we kind of go into things blind seeing fake swatches of colour on the internet. So, without further a due, here they are!
Studio Cream EyeShadows
- Candlelight – $3.00
- Natural Glow – $3.00
I’m not going to give full reviews of these products as I haven’t had long enough to test them but I know I still need to work on how to get these two not to crease! Oh, and why in the world are they two different sizes? They are the same product!
- Enchanting (Matte) – Light, matte brown – $3.00
- Temptress (Matte) – Light, matte purple/brown – $3.00
- Natural – Shimmering champagne – $3.00
The matte shades are really pretty which I didn’t expect! Though they are matte, they still have a nice finish to them that doesn’t look chalky.
Liquid Eyeshadow & *NEW* Primer Eyeshadow
- Essentials Liquid Eyeshadow – Misty Mauve – $1.00
- Essentials Shadow Primer – Sultry Satin – $2.00
I like liquid and cream eyeshadow more than powder. Maybe it’s because I don’t wear a lot of eyeshadow and I generally want just a wash of light colour. These certainly provide that and they stay put!
Duo Cream Eyeshadow
- Coffee & Cream – $1.00
Again, I like simple sweeps of colour – this fits the bill.
I’m pleasantly surprised with all of these products! I especially like the Studio Cream Shadow in Candlelight and the Mineral Shadow in Enchanting. All these products give great pigmentation except the Essential Duo which is more sheer (but still good!) and have really nice textures. I can’t say much about the wear yet as I haven’t been able to test them all fully but for the price, these are pretty outstanding!
