e.l.f Mineral Eye Shadows | Review & Swatches

Wednesday, 8 January 2014





Hello Lovelies! Today I'm back with yet another elf post, please do let me know if you're all getting bored and I will try my best to vary up my posts a bit more, but now I'm stopping myself from spending as much, it's harder to always have new products to review! 

Another one of the prizes I won from elf were a collection of their mineral eye shadows, which are a perfect dupe for the Bare Minerals ones which I already own for about a quarter of the price! The shades I received were (L-R): Royal, Earthy, Sweet, Innocent, Partier, Enchanting, Bronzed, Flirty, Beachy, and Elegant. 

These eyeshadows are all very pigmented, although some of the lighter shades aren't showing up. My favourite colours are Royal which is a shimmery greyish purple colour and looks amazing as a crease colour, Earthy which is a dupe for MAC Sumptuous Olive and Sweet which is a dupe for Bare Minerals 'Serene'. 

These are loose eye shadows though so go careful when opening and applying because you don't want to make a mess, however the lose formula of these do make them incredibly easy to apply and blend out for a more natural look. 

Overall, I love these eye shadows and for £3 you can't really go wrong, especially when the Bare Minerals version cost £14!

  4. I LOVE the purple colour at the end, I think it is Royal, the one you are talking about, so so pretty! I bet I would make a right mess of these though, I'm terrible with loose powders!

  5. I love e.l.f but loose shadows aren't my favourite as I'm so clumsy and make a right mess! These look amazing though, I love the green x
