E.L.F. Studio Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow

E.L.F. has released Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows in their Studio Line that are similar to the gel-like powdered shadows offered by the likes of L'Oreal, Giorgio Armani, Lancôme, and Chanel (3g/0.11 oz; $3;

The collection consists of seven shades but I only have six of them.  Each comes in a screw-top jar but does not include an insert, like the other brands.

The E.L.F. website describes them as, "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."

The shades are all party-themed which is appropriate considering these shadows are more glittery than the other high-end versions.

Here are pictures of each shade and swatches:

Overall rating:  Booyah!  For the price, the texture and pigmentation is decent.  Over a base or a primer, the colors are more vibrant and durable.  They layer and blend nicely.  I will be sure to complete my collection and bring you photos of the last shade as soon as I receive it.
