e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadows

These come in 10 colours and I have already purchased 6. They retail at $3/£3.50/€4.

What e.l.f. promise:
The beautiful soft texture melts into the skin for a vibrant color that lasts. Convenient and easy to apply, just layer the color to achieve the desired intensity. Apply wet or dry for a fabulous look that never creases or fades. 

(L-R: Sand Dollar, Wild Wheat, Pebble, Mystic Moss, Amethyst, Charcoal)


Size comparison- Studio Shadow-v-Studio Blush

Packaging:

These shadows come in Nars-esque black packaging and when you open it you can see you get a good deal of product inside. Also the underside of the lid has a handy little mirror which is very cute. The compacts don’t come with a brush but that doesn’t bother me because I am attached to my own substantive brush collection- pictures to come at a later date- but I think the e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow C Brush works really well with this product and really allows you to pick up alot of product and pack it on the lids.

Product:

At first, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of these shadows because at first some seemed quite hard to pick up and others felt very powdery, however having given these a chance and got to grips with how best to apply each colour, I can state i absolutely love them and the only fault I have with the Studio Single Shadows is that they don’t come in enough colours- the US site have released extra colours but no sign on the UK site as of yet. Of the colours I have, I like Sand Dollar because i think white eyeshadows really open up the eyes, and I love white eyeshadow with a coloured eyeliner to make the eyeliner pop. Wild Wheat is really neutral and great for daytime look. Pebble is a light grey on the lids and I like to use this as a base. I don't usually go for green eyeshadows but Mystic Moss is a beautiful colour for a soft smokey eye and doesn't really come across as green I find. I tend to use Amethyst and Charcoal together for a purple smokey eye look but if you like to smoke up eyes you have to get your hands on Charcoal- as the name suggests it is more grey than black but it is a great colour for blending.

Verdict:
Great shadows, love the colours, love the finish and great lasting power. Would repurchase, favourites Mystic Moss, Amethyst and Charcoal.
