ELF Flawless Eye Shadow Quad Golden Goddess

When I started blogging, everywhere I looked, people were raving about ELF. The reason for its popularity in the US, I think, is because the brand is so cheap and that they have an extensive range of products. Anyway, when my brother--in-law went to the US, he wanted to get my sister and me something. He picked up this from the ELF Head Quarter store ( I don't remember where).

 ON seeing this palette, I was overjoyed because well, each of these colors look like something I
would use for my everyday eye makeup.

Moreover, the shadows are perfectly coordinated as well so that you can work with everything in one go. There is a creamy beige for highlighting the brow bone, one brownish gold for lid, a copper for crease and a taupe brown for lining. There is also a sponge applicator ( don't underestimate them) and I found, beneath the applicator is a shiny mirror like surface which I can use to just see one eye.

My Experience with ELF Flawless Eye Shadow Golden Goddess

On swatching, the colours feel very soft and powdery. The shadows are pigmented and show up on the eyes in their true colours. However, they are dusty and they do kick up a lot of dust. Unless I am being extra careful, I tend to get a lot of fall outs.

Usually, I use my Illamasqua Vernau is my crease and then any of the three colours ( except the base) as my lid colour and that would sort out things.

Since the colours are shimmery, I do not use them in crease and that does not look very flattering on me.

The staying power of these shadows is an issue though. Without a base, these fade in about an hour on my oily eye lid while with a base underneath, I easily get about 5 to 6 hours of wear without fading.

Overall, since these days I don't wear makeup all day and do so only for a few hours, this ELF Quad makes for a good everyday palette for me. 

Shall I repurchase? No. Even though I like this eye shadow quad, because of the fall outs and poor staying power without base, I would not want to repurchase. I would rather spend a bit more and get something better.
