Champagne Review: E.L.F Eye Cosmetics

I’m huge on shimmering eye shadow so when I saw E.L.F’s mineral eye shadow advertised as “Sorry MAC!” I just had to try it out! And of course I couldn’t resist and ordered a few other things for my Upcoming Contest starting next week, so stay tuned!

E.L.F Eye Cosmetics Review

1. Color Quality?

E.L.F Neutral Eye Shadow Palette
Normally I find that when I purchase drug store brand eye shadows (ie Maybelline) the color isn’t nearly as vibrant when you put it on as to when you see it on the palette. But for E.L.F neutral eye shadow, what you see is what you get! I’m impressed.

E.L.F Celebrity Mineral Eye Shadow
I used this gold shimmer for the light part of my eyes. It isn’t as vibrant as MAC’s or Red Earth’s shimmering eye shadow, but it’s comparable to Sephora’s.

E.L.F Black Liquid Eyeliner
It’s okay. The black turned dark grey on my eyelids, I had to apply it twice to get the solid black.

2. Long Lasting?
All of the products mentioned are good, the Mineral Eye Shadow’s shimmer does fade after a few hours. MAC’s shimmering eye shadow definitely last longer, but E.L.F is a lot cheaper.

3. Price?
You get what you pay for and E.L.F is great quality for what you pay. I would buy the eye shadow and the mineral eye shadow again, but I’m sticking to my Maybelline waterproof eyeliner.

4. Pictures!
Here are some pictures of me with only the make up shown in the picture above. The pictures were taken at the Casino in Gatineau, Quebec. I like how the casino doorman gave me a flower when I went inside, and then Casino took $50 from me. Ugh, craps is the devil!!


  1. lovely photos! and i love elf's quads too, the quality is great, and can't wait to hear more about the contest! =]]

  2. I'm not too keen on ordering from ELF again but your review might change my mind haha

  3. I do that too for the solid black look, but the grey can be quite a nice look too...nice review! Hee-That was so nice of the doorman to give flower to a beautiful lady! FAB weekend dear! XO*

  4. I have nothing from e.l.f.. I want to try it if I can find it in my city..
    But anyway...
    Very nice pictures..Thanks for review

  5. i just ordered from elf and then i saw their elf vs. mac thing too. i should have tried their mineral line. oh time. your look is pretty with the background. :P

  6. great review!!! I'm thinking of placing an order on E.L.F soon. But I'm gonna skip the eye liner. lol.

  7. lol..if i ever go to that casino, i'll make sure not to get the flower from the doorman.

  8. I never do any good when I go to the casions =/ But that flower you got is really cute :)

  9. lovely pictures! i like elf e/s too! i actually never tried mineral yet tho but thanks for the review!

  10. Im a mac artist but always looking for new things...I have a few elf lipglosses that are pretty good, so you've inspired me to try the mineral eyeshadow. Hope you're having a good weekend! XO

  11. hmm. i have never tried it. i swear by stilla eyeshadow -- the best shimmery eyeshadow available. at least for a picky fuck like me and in the colors that i need.

  12. I've never tried anything from e.l.f, but these are pretty!

  13. great review :) Thanks. I haven't tried elf eyeshadows but I think it's really worth it

  14. you are beautiful!!! And i have yet to try E.L.F I think i am like the only one in the whole beauty community who has not tried it hehe...

  15. i like your review :) i never know what to order at elf, it seems like they have so much stuff, these are the ones i'm gonna try :)

  16. love your pictures cute!
    i love elf quad too! and the price isn't bad too! :)

  18. I love the photos!! You look pretty. And well, casinos are like that!
