Hi dearies…Today I thought of reviewing my new eye shadow from ELF….
I always love to do eye makeup….Even though I am not much interested in face makeup..Eye makeup is a must for me….I have tried almost all the popular eye shadows….
In the cream shadows in my collection..the most cheaper one is from ELF…When I say its cheaper…Don’t think that it compromises with the quality….No…ELF is a brand which has the quality products that stands in your budget…Here in UK…we don’t have ELF stalls in any of the stores across UK..only way to purchase ELFproducts is from their UK website….which is my favourite:) click here to go to ELF website

Now, Lets move on to review…I am reviewing 2 different shades of 
ELF Duo Eyeshadow cream(Butter Pecan and Sugar Cookie)

My Views about Duo Cream Eye Shadow
I was very happy with almost all the ELF products I ahve tried so far..That made me purchase this Duo Eye Shadow….
ELF claim this shadow to be crease resistant…But It was not true for me though….
After the frst hour of application itself, it seriously began to crease a lot….I tried using UD primer portion underneath it…Then it was a kinda ok…But I can’t say that its very pigmented..Maybe I have oily lids..I haven’t faced this problem of creasing with other shadows from ELF… But this one seriously not recommend..thank go I bought only 2 shades…
I would say it can be used as a base for other eye shadows..I even use the lightest shade to highlight my brow bone…it does a good job for that…hehehe 😀
ELF claim about the  ‘wearing alone for a dramatic effect'” seriously  I’m not convinced! 
But I can’t really complain for this value of 1.50 GBP….
I now use this as a base for my mineral eye shadows from ELF…:)
Let me show you the swatches….I had to swipe thrice to get this pigmentation

  • packaging is good

  • cruelty free
  • Contains parabens
  • creases even with a primer
