Review And Swatches - ELF Long-Lasting Lusturious Eyeshadows (ALL OF THEM)


Hi babes! <3 

Today I was going through my makeup collection and I saw my lusturious eyeshadows from ELF (eyeslipsface) and I thought why not to a full on review on them?? So I picked up my camera, did some swatches and took some pictures for you sweeties. This is NOT a sponsored blogpost, I purchased everything myself with my own money and this is my honest opinion about this product, just putting it out there so you don't think anything else.

Anyways, the product claims are - 

"Soft and fluffy, these vibrant, shimmering Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow colours 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."


I think they described the product perfectly. I tried 2 of them with my baked eyeshadows (also from elf) but I used a primer underneath it since I was wearing regular eyehadow. I don't think you need to wear a primer with this product. It is very long lasting, I remember when I fell asleep with it on me, the baked eyeshadow was all faded out but the glitter was still in place, talking about being impressed and that was my first time trying out the product, lol.
It is very shimmery and some colors have more pigmentation then the others, but you can still see the shimmer. The product gives it a very metallic effect on the eyes, which I personally love, if you are not in to that metallic/shimmer looking eyes, maybe this is not a product for you.


The pros about  the product -


  • It is long lasting 
  • great pigmentation 
  • very smooth and doesn't feel heavy on the eyelids 
  • fine glitters, not chunky like most glitter products are 
  • whipped jelly texture (which I actually like) 
  • buildable 

The cons - 

  • a bit hard to apply 
  • may be to dramatic or to much for someone who wants to go with a more natural look

That is it, I personally give this product 5/5 stars. 

The reason why it is sometimes hard to apply because the depending on the brush you are using it is hard to pick up the product because of the texture of the eyeshadows. It is a very unique product overall, it cost 3.50 pounds (3 dollars for you who live in the US) and I got all of them when it was 50% off and ELF run those sales all the time, just keep an eye open for that. ;) 



Here is the pictures/swatches of these eyeshadows -

As you all can see, I took pictures of the product in different lightning and angles so you can see it's true color of how they actually look like in real life. 

I am going to desrcribe the colors - 

  • Gala - It is a reddish brown color 
  • Confetti - it is just a white glitter , least pigmented of them all 
  • Soiree - a pink/champagne color 
  • Toast - gold 
  • Festivity - plum/purple 
  • Celebration - Silver, this is least pigmented after confetti but still it has an ok pigmentation 
  • party - this is the most intresting color of them all. It is a green/gray/taupe all together, very unique color
