Today I'm going to be reviewing ELF's Duo Eyeshadow Cream in Mocha Swirl. This is from the £1.50 range.
ELF say : "Express yourse.l.f. with the easy to blend, crease resistant, creamy duo eye shadow colors. Each gorgeous shade can be worn alone or together for a dramatic effect. The soft-blending formula can also be layered under powder eye shadow to set the color in and keep it lasting vibrant all day."
I say : The crease resistant claim really wasn't true in my case, but I'm yet to find a cream eyeshadow that doesn't crease on me, I think me and my oily lids need to take the hint and stay away from cream! As for the 'wearing alone for a dramatic effect' I'm not convinced! I think these would be better suited to be 'layered under powder eyeshadow'.
I am disapointed as this is the first ELF product that I haven't been happy with, but I can't help but think that all of the problems are down to my oily lids.
Have you tried these yet? What did you think of them?
You can buy the eyeshadows here, they cost £1.50 for 3g and come in a variety of colours.
