I am an all-around eyeshadow enthusiast. They’re fun to swatch, offer a chance to play around with hundreds of combinations, and I don’t have to sit around and wonder if a shade is “my color.” When I saw these on the little Elf rotator in my school’s bookstore, it was no problem to just pick one up and take it for a test drive. Believe me when I say, it was very smooth ride.
I own two of these quads: one in Tantalizing Taupe and another in Party Purple. They come in plastic packaging with the 4 strips of shadow laid out in a line and a mirror on the bottom. Each shadow has a corresponding eyeshadow location printed into it, like “crease” or “base,” ensuring that you always have at least one idea of a look that can be put together with them. Because of this, they’re incredibly user friendly making them a safe bet for shadow novices and experts alike.
The shades are all incredibly pigmented. The first one I bought was in Tantalizing Taupe, because it was fairly neutral and bronzy and hard to mess up. It’s not the softest or creamiest feeling formula in the world, but it really does shine through on the lid. After my success with it, I decided to try out a more colorful selection of colors with Party Purple, as I have been wronged by brightly colored Elf shadows in the past. Thankfully, Party Purple is just as pigmented as Tantalizing Taupe. The shades all blend into each other nicely and will stay on the lid all day, though I do always begin with a primer (either the Lorac Behind the Scenes Eyeshadow Primer or the ColourPop SuperShock Shadow in Crenshaw).
These have easily joined my class of eyeshadow faves and are one of my favorite products that definitely need a lot more affection. They’re only $3 each for the 4 shades and come with a mirror in the palette to boot. Conclusion: the Elf Flawless Eyeshadows are amazing and you should totally go for it if you were thinking about them!
