Over the weekend, e.l.f cosmetics held a money off event where they offered half price on all their essential eye products on orders over £10.
On friday I took full advantage of this offer and ordered 14 pf their products. My order was very speedy and arrived today!
Everything featured here usually retails at only £1.50! During this offer I got them for a mere 75p each!
Here is a glimpse of my delivery:
Note: all items have been swatched WITHOUT the use of primer so you get a better idea of how they really look.
I ordered 7 of their Custom Eyes eyeshadows, pictured and swatched below:
|Wisteria, Periwinkle, Dusk, Mocha, Moondust, Pink Ice & Truly Pink|
|The Custom Eyes eyeshadows sit perfectly in my MAC palette |
alongside a previously lonely shadow
I also ordered 4 of their All Over Colour Stick's, pictured and swatched below:
Finally I ordered 2 of their eyeshadow duo's, and one of their cream eyeshadow duos, shown below:
Pro's: I love the colour payoff with these shadows, they're quite light but can all be built up easily and the colours are perfect to work within my regularly used eyeshadow colours. I can't wait to do an eye look with these. I've been itching to do an eye look on here!
Also, I love the fact that they fit perfectly within my MAC palette.
Con's: My only criticism is I wish there was more of a range of colours as there are only 3 more I need to get before I have e.l.f's entire Custom Eyes collection!
Other than that, if you CAN see a colour that appeals to you, I definitely recommend these.
All Over Colour Stick's:
Pro's: I actually really love these! My favourite colour has to be Lilac Petal, but I really like all of them. Toastie looks like it would be waay to dark for me, BUT I'm sure I can find a way to use this. I would probably just use it as cream eyeshadow. I love the colours they all give off, really looking forwards to properly working with these :)
Con's: I can't work out if this is a bad thing, but to me they kind of smell like water colour paints. I'm very arty, so to me this is a nice smell, but others may not like it so I've put this in the con's.
Again (if you like cream blush's etc) I would recommend these!
Pro's: Again, I like the colour pay-off, and my favourite is Berry Mix, particularly the darker berry colour. The colours look more distinctive in real life than in the photo.
Con's: Again, I'd say not enough colour range, there was only a choice between 6, and the colour choices are all very simiar to eachother.
Cream Eyeshadow Duo:
I'm really disappointed with the colour pay-off of this one. As you can see it barely shows up on my skin, even when I attempted to build the colours up. You can just about see the pinky colour, but the beige/yellow one just looks like a faint smear of dirt :/
Not so impressed with this one, though will have a play around with it to see if I can get it to show up. The skin tone around my eyes will be slightly different to the skin on my arm where I swatched it, so hopefully I'll have more luck there.
Overall: I am SO happy with my purchases. It was my first time shopping at Eyes Lips Face, and will definitely be going back! I just hope they expand their Custom Eyes range so I have lots more to choose from on my next purchase!
