The beautiful soft texture melts into the skin for a vibrant color that lasts. Convenient and easy to apply, just layer the color to achieve the desired intensity. Apply wet or dry for a fabulous look that never creases or fades.

Review
Just like with the e.l.f. Studio Blushes, these eyeshadows aren't necessarily my favorite. However, overall, they're pretty nice eyeshadows. Most of the colors are smooth and pigmented with a good lasting power with a primer and/or base (it's "and" for me). Sand Dollar, Butter Cream, and Wild Wheat, I'm not too crazy about. They're more gritty in texture, sheer, and tend to apply unevenly. It took far too much effort to even get them to show enough on my hand for a swatch. All of the other colors are beautiful though. I mean, just take a look at those last 4 shadows...Raspberry Truffle, Amethyst, Mystic Moss, and Charcoal. Those ones are nearly effortless to apply. Those 4 are most definitely my favorites of the bunch!

What are your thoughts on the e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadows? Have you tried them before? If you have and you have swatches of your own to share, feel free to leave your link below!

I love ELF but I've always thought that their e/s had little color payoff...thanks for the swatches! These eyeshadows look great.

@MochaMakeupLover: I've heard the same about the ELF eyeshadows. The Studio line ones honestly aren't bad but they're easy to overblend and with overblending, the color payoff lessens. You can tell in my ELF look that I posted about a week or so ago. I'm not crazy about them but they're wearable for people who prefer that look.

And if you're interested, here's the link to the look :)
