e.l.f. for Fall 2012 Swatches, Photos & Review
e.l.f. has some new makeup out this fall and the shades aren’t really your typical “fall look”.
Some of these items are really new and I don’t think they’re out yet. Forgive me for not knowing some of the names, they weren’t labeled and I can’t find them online yet,
Take a peek.
Flawless Eyeshadow in Party Purple
Base, Lid, Crease, Line (over primer)
As you can see the Party Purple palette comes in pink and purple shades and tells you what to put where on your eye. I wasn’t too impressed overall with the texture and payoff though. They felt a little rough and even over a primer I didn’t get huge, even payoff.
Blush in Flushed
Blush in Flushed
Loose Eyeshadow (sorry I don’t know the name and can’t find it online anywhere)
Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick (sorry not sure of the name)
Shimmer Lip Gloss in Fantasize
Flushed Blush, Loose Eyeshadow, Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick, Fantasize Shimmer Lip Gloss
Flushed is actually a really nice texture and has great payoff. It’s a really pretty medium pink with very slight golden shimmer.
The Loose Eyeshadow is a bright blue with metallic finish. It has kind of a smooth almost creamy texture and ok payoff.
The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick is a very pale nude. It’s basically completely sheer.
Fantasize is a light mauve shade with golden shimmer. Fairly pale, not a lot of color impact.
Overall: Well there are things to consider. Overall I would say the payoff and saturation wasn’t what I would normally want, except for Flushed Blush. However, for the price, it’s not a huge loss.
Availability: Target and where-ever else e.l.f. is sold.
Pricing: $2-3.00 each.
Are you willing to take the gamble with less expensive makeup like e.l.f. or do you prefer a heftier price but better payoff?
Note: e.l.f. is cruelty free.
