ELF Brightening Eye Color quad Punk Funk – review, swatches:
Today I am reviewing ELF brightening eye color quad in Punk Funk. ELF has different combinations of quads in this range. I bought the Punk Funk, I don’t know why. It is a very colorful quad; you can easily guess it from the name. There are four colors in this quad – electric blue, pink, purple and white.
Price: $1 (in US). INR 150 (in India).
What the product says:
- Long-lasting, easy blending color.
- Instantly brightens and defines.
- Eyes look fresh and wide awake.
- Light reflecting, crease resistant and longwear.
ELF brightening eye color quad comes in a cute little plastic packaging. It contains four shades – blue, pink, purple and white. All the colors are non-shimmery except the pink one. Only the pink color is shimmery and that’s why it is the best shade out of the four. All the colors are matte and the purple shade is quite chalky. The base or highlighting white shade gives a slight pinkish tint when applied. The quad comes with an applicator which looks quite cheap. And oh, the quad has a small mirror in the applicator compartment.
Never mind the background images. 😛
Well, ELF cosmetics is famous for its $1 range of cosmetics; some of them are really good. But I think this one is not up to the mark. All the shades except the pink one are matte and dry. They don’t look much good after application. Moreover the application is quite difficult due to the dryness. It takes 3-4 sweeps to make it presentable. And it falls off a LOT. U can understand that when u see my pic at the end of the post. When I applied this shadow, I got powdery colors all over my face.
I have read in many reviews that the 19 quads in this brightening eye color range have different qualities. Some of them are good; some of them are not so good. For instance, the drama quad has a overall positive review. But, I don’t like my Punk Funk quad. I think, even Lakme eyeshadow is better than ELF e/s. But, when you are paying just $1 for an eyeshadow in 2011, you should better not complain much.
What I like about ELF brightening eye color quad:
- Pocket friendly.
- Lots of different shades to play with.
- Packaging is nice.
What I don’t like about ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad
- Very very chalky.
- Falls off a LOT.
- Color pay-off is not so good.
- Does not show up if not applied with a cream base.
- All the colors are not available in India.
ELF brightening eye color quad is not a very standard eyeshadow quad. It has a lot of drawbacks. But since it comes at just $1, this is not a great loss. I can say that it is a good option for the beginners, but not for the veteran players. 😀
Shall I purchase this again? Nope. There are plenty good products in the market.
Rating: 2/5. -1 for bad quality, -1 for bad color payoff and fall-off and -1 for availability.
Finally, this is how ELF Punk Funk looks on my eyes.
My eyelashes are looking blue not because I applied blue mascara; it is due to the fall out. 😐
Take care. 🙂
