I love these little baked eyeshadows. I have the colors Toasted and Bark, and they go very well together. Very smooth, pigmented, blend very well, and you get a lot of product in the compact. I've been wearing these two (over primer and an eyeshadow stick base) for going on 7 hours now so far and there's been no fading or creasing. I hope they come out with more colors in this range, I'll probably go back to pick up the plum color. Definitely recommend these shadows.
i have the color toasted its such a great everyday color ive heard its comparable to toasted from urban decay but i dont own it so not sure its very pigmented dry even more so wet lasts all day with primer and works even better over a cream base
i also have bark which is a chocolate brown its awesome for the outer corner and the crease its not as pigmented as toasted but its not overpowering either its a great color i love them both and already have back ups
the color enchanted sucks! no pigmentation and is just a weird color for my fair pink toned skin even over a base or primer it has no color stick to toasted and bark
will buy again
I purchased this product in Burnt Plum, and I absolutely love it! If you desire a softer look, I recommend applying this product dry. However, if you're looking for an opaque and bold look, definitely apply this eyeshadow wet. The difference in color payoff is unreal, in my opinion. I definitely would purchase this shade again and plan on getting this product in more colors. I highly recommend this product!
I was immediately drawn to the baked eyeshadows, especially in one called "enchanted" and "toasted." However, after looking at them a little while more, I figured I did not need those shades because I have similar shades sitting in the UD palettes and the 144 neutral palette from ELF already. So, I went ahead and picked up "pixie" last night, but not with the intention to use it as an eyeshadow. I picked up this particular shade to use it as a blush. I know it's a slightly different color than Warm Soul by MAC, but it gives a nice, natural glow of color to the cheeks. Though, Pixie is a little bit more pinky in color, and Warm Soul is a bit more bronze, they are very comparable in my opinion. These eyeshadows work great as both an eyeshadow, and as a blush. Definitely reccommend!
I purchased this in Enchanted and Toasted. Love these! Most baked eyeshadows I've tried from the DS are very sheer and I wasn't pleased. This actually has nice pigmentation and the colors are very pretty. With a primer these last me all day, like most elf shadows do! For the price, you just can't go wrong with these.
They do feel a little chalky in the pan and there is some fallout, but really, expect that with something so cheap. It still manages to go on great, and I can look past those 2 small issues.
I had never used or really thought about using a baked eyeshadow, but these looked pretty and fun, so I gave them a try. Now I'm hooked! I got Enchanted and Pixie, and can't wait to try more. Enchanted is a great all-over color for me, it's a light gold color that would work for most warm skin tones. Pixie, on me, turns into a lovely copper-pink, the exact color of a new penny. I use them with a damp brush, which gives them great coverage and insane shimmer, almost a metallic finish. I use them over primer and they last all day with no creasing, a minor miracle considering my oily lids.
I am going to preface this review by saying that I typically only wear MAC or Julie Hewett eyeshadows, as I find they're the only ones that truly last on me & don't crease or fade through the day.I have found that most drugstore/cheaper shadows are too chalky, non-pigmented, crease terribly, and the quality just isn't there, so I typically avoid. I do like many ELF products, and I admit I was sucked in by these. For $3 each I figured I'd risk it, and if I hated them, no big loss. I ordered Burnt Plum, Bark, Toasted, & Enchanted. I've worn them the past several days and I must say, I am not only very surprised, but also very impressed. I use MAC Painterly as a base/primer, and these last all day on me - 7 AM until 6 PM - with no creasing or fading whatsoever. They are very blendable, buildable, and nicely pigmented. I also have not had major issues with fallout. As for the colors, Burnt Plum is the most highly pigmented and is a medium reddish-brown purple. Bark is a cool medium-dark brown, and on application reminds me quite a bit of MAC Satin Taupe (my everyday color). Toasted is a bronzey-gold, and Enchanted is a lighter gold. All of the colors have a shimmery satin finish, but aren't overwhelmingly frosty. I've worn Bark & Burnt Plum both to work - I am 37 and work in a very conservative office - with no issues. The packaging feels fine to me, and you do get a nice amount of product. I would definitely repurchase these. continued >>
I got Toasted and initially I was unimpressed. I quickly slapped it on over just primer and it felt like it wouldn't blend in properly. But...if you use a primer and a colored base, it blends much better and really makes the color stand out. Toasted is a beautiful 'everyday' shade. I wore it with a matte medium brown e/s in the crease for a subtle look.
I'm going back for the rest of the colors because these are really great for a few bucks.
I love these eyeshadows! The quality is so good. I used the 50% off studio coupon code and got two of them for 1.50 each. I got Toasted and Bark. They are so nice and smooth and very pigmented. I was a bit apprehensive about how shimmery they were when i first swatched them on my hand, but when I applied it on my eyes and blended them out, they looked so nice. They look great alone but even better over a primer. These eyeshadows can easily be built up for more intense color and they are also quite easy to blend. Such a nice product that is so cheap and affordable. I hope they come out with more colors with different kinds of finishes. I would definitely buy some more!
I bought this eyeshadow in pixie. It is so pretty. You definitely want to wear primer with it to get the color to really pop. I used my makeup lock and seal with it and it created a beautiful color and stayed there all day. I'm not real interested in the other colors but I would definitely buy more if they bring out more colors!
