I don’t have too many cream eyeshadows. The ones I have are by Maybelline, the Color Tattoo ones. But since those are not really long lasting on me and I do have troubles applying them evenly and blending seamlessly, I was looking for some alternatives. That’s when I picked up some e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows from my local Walmart.
I believe the color selection is not that large. I got 4 out of 7 shades.
Soft and fluffy, these vibrant, shimmering Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow colors can be used as eyeshadow or a bold liner. The whipped gel texture is easy to blend and lightweight for lasting comfort and wear. Perfect for highlighting the brow bone and adding extra shimmer for a truly glam look.
Color: Confetti, Festivity, Soiree, Toast.
Plastic containers. Not the very best option of course, but considering the price I have no complaints. Just try to screw the cap pretty tight to prevent it from drying out way too fast.
This is something new for me. The e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows are not too creamy nor waxy. Their texture feels like shimmery whipped gel. Very soft and easy to blend. Lightweight. They don’t dry too fast. You have enough time to apply and blend them.
Pigmented and very buildable. You can make it as sheer or as opaque as you would like.
I was impressed the most by these e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows lasting power. They are the most long-lasting cream eyeshadows I have ever tried. You can wear them without any powder eyeshadows on top. They will not crease, smear or fade. Amazing!
I love how they are packed with glitter. It is not a regular metallic finish which most of the drugstore cream eyeshadows would have.
e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows apply very good on top of your powder eyeshadows too. So in case you want to add just some extra glow to your look, go ahead and use these.
I am totally in love with these e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows. They are the winners in so many ways. And as a bonus the price… Unbelievable.
Confetti – super shimmery silvery white color. Great for inner corners and all over the lid.
Toast – perfect gold with glitter in it of course. I don’t like golds that have intense warm undertones. This one is a good one though. Not brassy at all.
Soiree – shimmery mauve pink. Very beautiful color indeed. I am using it in combination with my purple shades I have, with my browns, greens… Looks pretty with everything.
Festivity – OMG this color is everything! A very deep shimmery plum purple. Mostly I am using it to add some glow to my smokey eye makeup.
All the eyeshadows apply evenly and blend easily.
They are not streaky at all.
It is said that you can wear them as eyeshadows or eyeliner. Didn’t really care about the eyeliner option. Because it has so much shimmer it makes it a little bit harder for me to get an even line. I’d say that yes it is possible, but not my favorite way to use them.
And a couple looks for you :)
I do not hesitate to recommend the e.l.f Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows to everybody. There is nothing to dislike about these eyeshadows. Really. I wish they would have more colors so I can buy them all.
