I own Outdoorsy and Earthy, both of which came in a mineral eyeshadow starter kit that also included a flat application brush. I got these from my local target for $5, which is just brilliant. The quality of the products is great, the colors are very very pigmented. I use these shadows with a green eye shadow stick (also by ELF) as a base. Absolutely stunning colors. So glad I bought these!
I bought the kit (sandy beach) it has celebrity & socialite eyeshadows with a brush and I love it. It looks great and stays on all day without re-touch and I have oily skin. Packaging looks like BE. I have re-purchased already!
I own 12 of these and have 5 more on the way. These are a dupe for Bare Escentuals eyeshadows. I am actually shocked at how much I like these and how well they perform. They apply nicely and with the $3 Elf mineral primer they last all day without creasing. It is absolutely crucial to use a "mineral" specific primer with these rather than a regular primer. Regular makeup & mineral makeup actually repel against each other, so the mineral primer doesn't work well with regular shadows & regular primer doesn't work well with minerals. Color payoff on all the shadows is awesome and the colors are fun and varied. I highly recommend these, and this is coming from someone who typically uses Bare Escentuals, Guerlain, NARS, Urban Decay, etc. I would honestly not be at all surprised to learn these are made by the same people who supply Bare Escentuals. The products are identical right down to the packaging. Will definitely continue to purchase these!
Having never tried any E.L.F. products before, I was at Big Lots and saw packs of these mineral eyeshadows. There were 3 different groupings. Each set contained 2 eyeshadows and a brush for $4.50. The only thing I've ever know about E.L.F. is that it's supposed to be super cheap (most of their products are $1) but exceptionally good despite the low price.
These eyeshadows are AMAZING!!!! I was expecting some powdery, barely pigmented eyeshadow that would crease quickly. These shadows are a perfect alternative if Bare Escentuals is too high-priced for you. Great colors, long lasting, colors didn't crease after 5+ hours of wear, and the brush I got is really nice!!!
I'm definitely going to go back and buy the other color sets I saw.
You can use this product wet or dry to enhance the colour. Beautiful colours, they last all day with a primer!
I got ten of these shadows, because for a limited time, if I purchased $30 or more of e.l.f. products, 10 mineral eye shadows were given free. Without the coupon, these shadows are $3 each. The packaging is very sleek, and comparable to that of Bare Essentials eye shadows. As far as the actual shadows go, they are very shimmery, so if you're going for a more matte look, these aren't for you. They do have a few matte colors, though, but I haven't tried those. I guess my biggest complaint with these shadows is that the color was misrepresented on the website, as it is with most of their products. I also noticed that the shadows aren't super pigmented. I think the color is meant to be built up, so that there is the option of wearing it sheer, or layering it for color. I saw that quite a few people complained about how the shadow creases, or how it does not last all day. I used the e.l.f. eyelid primer, and didn't have those problems. Overall, these shadows are a decent product, and hey, they were free. :)
I have several of these. Yes, they are very shimmery, but pretty. Very comparable to more expensive mineral shadows. I find best results using a cream eyeshadow as a base (like their Studio palette of shimmers) and applying with fingertips, then blending with a brush. A brush alone just sends it flying everywhere.
I have 11 of these! "sassy" is by far my favorite! It's a deep bronze with red tones in it, perfect for my green eyes. I love these!!! I got 10 for free with a deal from elf and I was shocked at how I actually liked them. These are my favorite mineral shadows and yeah... try them! They are great! (especially if you like shimmer!)
For $3, E.L.F's mineral eyeshadows are a pretty good buy. I own four of them (Celebrity, Golden, Elegant, and Angelic) and they all seem to work fine for me. The only downside that I've noticed is that the color will fade a little, even with a primer underneath. But, I find this to be an affordable eyeshadow that I will repurchase again and again.
TERRIBLE!!!! I bought 12 mineral shadouws...some matte some shimmer....i hate them ALL....I am unable to use them. I've tried to use them over primer lotion, paint pots... u name it i've tried it. The shimmery shadows are not very pigmented at all...the color sheers out to just a shimmer and even then the shimmer ends up all over your face. The matte shadows are just as bad...no pigment what so ever. I've tried to use them alone..together..along with shadows from other brands with no success. The only use i've found for them was to use them as glitter for my nieces are projects...lol sad but true.
