ELF Cream Eye Shadow Duo

Hi Everyone,

I found these in the back of a drawer just over a month ago, You know when you buy something and just think hm they're ok I'll use it at some point, and toss them to the back? That's what I did with these, If only I'd rediscovered them sooner. 

Butter Pecan: 
I'd say this is a more amber and red based brown duo, both work lovely together and the amber slightly reminds me of MAC Rubenesque in colouring when sheered out.
Mocha Swirl:
A taupe based iced shade with a chocolate brown partner, After looking at the swatches again I really like this taupe shade and may have to get more use out of it.
Coffee and Cream:
 An Iced white shade with a darker brown, suits the name well, I really like the brown in this duo.

Berry Mix: 
Burgundy and iced pink combination, the pink is less pigmented but the burgundy has quite a good colour.
Sugar Cookie: 
A more barbie pink and yellow based gold, More pigmented than the iced pink, the gold looks really nice sheered out.
Egg Plant: 
A forest Green and Purple pairing, One of the more pigmented ones of the bunch.

Yes I must admit they're not the greatest cream shadow I've ever come across, but for just £1.50 they are pretty good, the pigment in them surprised me quite a bit. I've loved them when they're sheer though, plus they're easy to mix and build up too.

You can get all these colours here.
