E.l.f Cosmetics and I have a love hate relationship. There are a lot of their products that have become staples in my life like their eyebrow kit and contouring blush and bronzer duo. There are quite a bit that have missed the mark for me too like their Studio Precision Eyeliner, Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon, and some of their brushes but they do have some hidden gems that I love love love. With a price point of around $3 the brand is certainly one of the cheapest. I am going to be raving about their Essential Eye Brightening Eyeshadow Quads today and ya'll they are only one dollar.
This first quad is called Butternut. Each quad has 4 shades that are a good size. If you have a larger eyeshadow brush you may have some trouble getting into the product but it isn't too bad. As you can see all of the shades in this quad are shimmery. They are not glittery or chunky but they do apply with a nice sheen to them. What really got me with these eyeshadows (all of them not just Butternut) is how pigmented they are. When I purchased them I didn't have very high hopes because let's face it for a dollar you usually get what you pay for. I was pleasantly surprised. They perform like much more expensive brands. They are a bit powdery but they are also very soft. They apply smooth and even and have amazing color pay off!
This quad is called Punk Funk and it is sooo much fun! If you are a color lover like me then this quad will become your favorite. The colors are so bright and pigmented. They really pack a punch! I usually don't see very good bright colors from drugstore brands but this one is awesome. The white is a satin shade so it has some sheen. The blue and purple are mostly matte but they have a few sparkles however, when applied on the eye they look matte. The pink is a glitter shadow. All four are really nice. Look at that purple!!!
This last one is another neutral option called Brownstone. Yet again it has great pigmentation, great quality, smooth, and even application! The third color swatch is a matte brow and the others are satin/shimmer shades.
You can buy these on the E.l.f website www.eyeslipsface.com but you can also find them at Walmart, Kmart, and Target. One thing I have found when I started looking at the website and other places for this blog was that not all the quads can be found at any once place. Some of the quads I mentioned are not on the website but are still at my Kmart. Some on the website I haven't seen anywhere but the website so you might have to do some hunting for some of these quads. I have bought a couple others so if you want to see them let me know!
Overall: I love these. I think for a dollar these are absolutely amazing. They perform wonderfully. They are pretty compact too which makes them easy to throw in a travel bag or carry with you anywhere. They are very soft and blend like a dream!!
