New ELF Studio Products

Single Eye Shadows in Sand Dollar, Pebble, and Amethyst:

Very Disappointed in the pigmentation of these :( With UDPP as a base, I applied about 4 layers of shadow to achieve the swatches below:

Blush in Mellow Mauve:

I know that my wrist looks like it is covered in a rash, but that is actually the swatch! I must say that it is actually a pretty satin finish mauve color, with middle of the road color payoff. Nylon 12 as an added ingredient helps to make this less powdery and smooth on more nicely.

Shimmer Palette:
I added this to my cart to get free shipping, and I had no idea I would like it so much! There are four colors, a white, a baby pink, an amber color, and a more vibrant pink color. They are very very sheer and are luminescent without too much shimmer.

Complexion Perfection:
I wasn't that impressed with this one. While it is mattifying, it doesn't have a very nice finish. The sheer colors provide the slightest sheer cover to disguise uneven skin tones.

Warm Bronzer:

This can be used even by the fairest skin tones! I must say I will not put this on my face due to the shimmer. It is nice when applied to the decollete and shoulders/ arms.


  1. Thanks for the swatches... I want the sand dollar color now : )

  2. I have Sand Dollar, Pebble and Amethyst. I like Sand Dollar and Amethyst - but Pebble is just chalky and does not give much color.
    What do you do with your shimmer palette? How do you use it?
