e.l.f. Flawless Eyeshadow in Beautiful Browns

Hey there!

Eye makeup has always appealed to me, due to the transformative powers it apparently possesses. You can notice this, especially when the Japanese do their makeup. The before and after pictures don’t actually seem like the same person! All, due to some deftly applied makeup.
Good quality eyeshadows in India, usually cost upward of 700-800 buck in India but the product I am going to review is a mere 150 bucks but can be at par with the drugstore eyeshadows in India with some strategically applied primer.

Create flawless looking eyes with brilliant eyeshadow and an easy step-by-step application guide. These beautifully coordinated shadows give you a professionally contoured and defined eye that allows you to go as bold or natural as you want. The silky smooth formula glides effortlessly onto the skin for long-lasting color.

Directions of use

Apply the base color all over the eyelid up to the browbone. Follow by sweeping on the lid shade all over the eyelid to shade. Next apply the crease color in the crease of the eye where the lid meets the browbone to contour. Finish by adding the line color around the lash line and outer corner of the eye to define and blend in edges.

The packaging is sub standard and quite flimsy. But the concept of the Essentials line in ELF, is that they compromise on packaging but not on the quality of the product. The flimsy packaging houses four coordinated colours for a no brainer everyday look. There is the standard useless sponge applicator along with a mirror for the on-the-go touch ups. I wouldn’t risk dropping this eyeshadow, because I am almost completely certain that it will shatter immediately.

My take on e.l.f. Flawless Eyeshadow in Beautiful Browns :

Seeing as it is a part of the essentials line, I wasn’t expecting a lot from this quad but it surpassed my expectations. It’s a decently pigmented quad which lasts a decent 2-3 hours without primer but with primer they look more vibrant and easily last for 6-7 hours.
The problem with this quad is its sheer single swipe application. It is so sheer that one has to squint to even see the presence of the lid and line colour. On building up the colour you get a fairly pigmented swatch that creases very easily on the lids, a primer is essential for this product; otherwise it is a complete waste of your money. This quad enables you to have a subtle everyday smokey eye with just a touch of snazz thanks to the glimmering crease colour. It can be a fairly nice party look if you add some black eyeshadow too.

  1. The shades remind me of the old maybelline chai latte quads. The chai latte is a little more pigmented but a very good quad for everyday use just like this. Lovely review.
