ELF Cosmetics Flawless Eyeshadow






Hello beauties,

I hope your all doing well and having a lovely well earned weekend! 

Today I have another offering from ELF cosmetics in the shape of the Essentials Flawless Eyeshadow Palette in the shade Smokey I've always been super interested in these as the packing although it's white reminds me of the Wet 'n' wild ones with the embossed direction on each eyeshadow. I personally don't pay much attention to them but I can see this being a super useful feature if you are new to eyeshadow. 

The colours are so beautiful, The base is a matte white that going on like a dream it's well pigmented and stays looking bright white all day, The lid shade is a light matte grey I would personally say this is the least pigmented of the bunch and the colour is subtle but still visible. The crease is a gorgeous medium/dark grey with a fine silver shimmer, I adore this colour for my crease and although the pigment is great it does slightly fade throughout the day even with the use of primer. The last shade is a matte black, which I also adore paired with the dark grey the perfect smokey eye can be achieved, It mega pigmented and doesn't fade to grey like other cheap alternatives. The longevity of these eyeshadow is also great, I've not experienced them without a primer but I can imagine they would still be good as I hand to wash my hands really well to remove the swatches! 

Overall I really enjoy using this palette and I have received so many compliments while wearing these shades! 
What's your ideal smokey eye product?

  1. This is a really good little palette. I've not tried Elf Shadows before but I really like the colours in this one. It looks like it would get a lot of use.

    1. Oh yeah, I do stick to where they say minus the eyeliner, I use that in the crease to give more depth :)

  8. This looks great, the only bad thing about E.L.F is that their products run out all the time. I'm always longing after their products, but they're never available! I think they should take the lunge and venture into the big bad world of drug stores.

    1. I know what you mean, some of their products are always out of stock as people just keep snapping them up, I had the same problem when ordering the last time! That would be such a cool idea!

  10. I still haven't tried ELF shadows, but this is great for the money. I doubt I would be brave enough though to wear black eyeshadow! I'm a neutral girl haha.
