e.l.f. Cosmetics Haulage - Mineral Eyeshadows and new Studio Line!

11:25 AM

Wow! It's been a busy week - I can't believe my last post was on Monday! I'm totally slacking behind!

It was actually good timing that I received my order from e.l.f Cosmetics in the mail yesterday, as I was needing a fix of something new to try out! Last week I read some reviews about the new e.l.f. Studio line, and thought I'd order some products and give it a try. I also included some of their mineral eyeshadows - I mean, hey, at $3 a pop, it can't hurt to try them out, right?!

Below is my order - yay!


I ordered five of the mineral eyeshadows to try out: Socialite, Caffeinated, Celebrity, Elegant and Golden - all five are pretty basic colors, but still a bit different from the loads of other mineral eyeshadows I have.
The first thing I noticed was the size of the pot, which is equal, if not a bit bigger to the Bare Escentual eyeshadows I have. The actual weight of the product is 0.03 oz, which I believe is the same as the BE shadows, but the price difference of $13 for a Bare Escentuals versus $3 for an e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow says a lot!

The colors are absolutely stunning in the pot - all five that I ordered are extremely shimmery, and some have a hint of other iridescence in them, like Socialite (which reminds me of Bare Escentuals Drama).


Socialite: A beautiful deep, charcoal/taupe color with blue, pink and golden iridescence.

Caffeinated: A rich, deep bronze with golden shimmer. Has a darker base, so this applies darker than it appears in the pot.

Elegant: Pale buttery/golden ivory. Tons of pearlescent shimmer - gorgeous!

Celebrity - a pale beige with iridescence. Reminds me of a cooler version of Bare Escentuals Queen Linda, as it isn't quite as golden as it is beige.

Golden - Exactly as it would seem based on the name - crushed 24K gold!
Swatches for each of the colors are below - these are absolutely stunning. The minerals are very pigmented and easily applied wet, dry, or as a liner. I am very anxious to test out some of the other colors in the collection, including their blushes!

Who else out there has tried these out? Let me know what you think - at $3 a pop, these would be a great way to expand into the mineral lines - gorgeous shades that effortlessly blend together.

  1. I loooove these mineral eyeshadows! I own "Earthy" which is an unbelievably gorgeous olive green (a lot like MAC Golden Olive) and you're right. They blend effortlessly! Some mineral eyeshadows are very challenging to apply but these are fantastic. Not a lot of fallout and the staying power and pigmentation are incredible. These babies are a goldmine and definitely worth 5 times the price. :)
