Now, the eye shadows I’m going to show you barely touch the sides on what ELF can offer. They have such a large range, baked, loose, pigments, cream and mineral. Here are a few I brought recently.
The Baked eyeshadows give the best colour payoff when used wet, otherwise they don’t do too much from me, they are a pretty shade but I have always found baked shadows difficult to work with. The minerals are very pigmented, again best used wet or with a good primer but they are pretty colours and I love the burnt plum shade. The long lasting eyeshadow was not what I expected at all. I thought it would be more like the L’oréal infallible pressed pigment, but this felt almost spongy it was strange, but it was creamy and blended well on the lids. Strange texture, good payoff.
These I hadn’t seen before, coloured primers. I brought these in my two most worn colours so I could work them with some of my eyeshadows, and underneath my eyeshadows they look intense. Its brilliant! You can also build them up to wear alone, they remind me of the Rimmel Shadow paints. They are long lasting when dry and didn’t crease on me, although even though I have slightly oily eyelids.
Baked Shadows £3.95, Mineral Shadows £3.00, Long Lasting Shadow £3.95, Primer Eyeshadow £2.50
