I used these a lot when I was just getting into eyeshadow and needed the practice. For $1, it was very well worth it for that price.
Now that I'm a bit better, I don't find myself reaching for these quite as often. HOWEVER, the bolder colours look really good with a primer or base. I tried the blue eyeshadow from "Punk Funk" and it was very lovely. I would never spend a ton of money on a colour I rarely use so e.l.f. is also good for that purpose, particularly during Halloween.
The pigment is just bad really bad. Unless your going for the darker if the shades the other colors never show up much. 1 dollar would be nice if it had some pigment.
Poor pigmentation. Not even really worth the $1 that they cost. Too bad cause the colors are really pretty!
In this situation, you get what you pay for. The prize is amazing. I believe I got this is 'butternut' for only $2, which is pretty good. Obviously, like the majority of e.l.f. products, it's cheap and is most likely best for beginners. I thought the pigmentation was pretty decent and it lasted for a couple of hours without a primer/base. The colouring though is really nice and most shimmery colours put me off but it only has subtle shimmer in it which is pretty. I don't think I will buy another eye shadow from e.l.f. only because I want to experiment with other brands. But for a beginner or if your just experimenting I think this is pretty good considering the low price.
I have this in butternut and I LOVE it! The shimmer last all day and on top of my gold colored eyeshadow primer it is fabulous!! People ask me what eyeshadow I'm wearing and their jaws drop when I tell them that it cost me $1!!!! Now I cant say the look is as great without my gold underneath because I haven't gone without it. Overall: Great product and price!
I bought this in brownstone and butternut and I totally loved the colours. But I found the formula to be EXTREMELY chalky. There was also close to no pigmentation. The worst thing was that they creased like mad. It still creased even after I applied UDPP. So definitely not repurchasing.
These quads are so nice and the quality isn't that bad. For the price, they're decently pigmented and I love the shade range! I have the Day 2 Night one and I think the shades are amazing, all go well together and are good for (as the name would suggest) day or night!! I like that they're small and don't take up like any space in your bag!
I bought this in Day 2 Night.
They are really small, but for the price - it's normal.
They are pigmented (except the lightest color) and they blend really well (again - except the lightest one).
The applicator that comes with them is awful, so I don't use it.
But I really love that there is a mirror behind the applicator that is really usable.
The packaging is not the greatest but it works.
I would repurchase in different colors, so that I have different ones to carry in my purse.
These eyeshadows are a no brianer. I used to find these around my house when I first started applying makeup. They are cheap but great looks don't always have to be expensive.
1. Packaging: The words on the front rub off very easily as usual. It is sturdy though, and small. I don't like the triangular shadow pans.
2. Quality: They are SUPER glittery and pigmented, and every time you lightly brush your eyeshadow brush into it, there's lots of highly pigmented fluffies flying around. The colors are nice, but they clash sometimes with the ones in the quad. Like Butternut, the first color is a yellow toned highlighting color but the second is awfully yellow toned gold. Then it jumps into a dark brown and a REALLY dark brown. How are we supposed to blend the light gold into the dark brown...?! Note: You need mad blending skills for this.
3. Price: At only 1$ for an eyeshadow quad, that's about 25 cents a color. It's not that expensive, so I would buy more, in different colors. The colors don't really match though, so I would probably buy a bunch of them and mix them up.
Overall, it's an okay product. The price matches the product well.
