perfect neutral shadow with excellent coverage i don’t think i’ve ever had a liquid eyeshadow that went on as smoothly as this one, it dried to a perfect finish and lasted all day long

Gosh I really like this

Blends well, lasts all day, I love using my finger to press some powder highlight or microglitter onto the shadow on my lid while it is still wet. Lasts all day. Blends out gorgeous in the crease and looks great smudged under lower lashline. I'm probably going to get all the shades eventually, I have the darkest and lightest currently.

Could Have Been Better

I was expecting for this to be much better given the reviews. At first the eye shadow feels nice to put on, but blending it with a brush and or my fingers causes it to be slightly sheer. After applying another coat the product comes up. The colors are very beautiful though! I think this should be called a primer instead of an eye shadow. I followed the directions given but even then it didn't work. Packing on eye shadow on top of it did help,but this isn't what I wanted/was looking for.

Beautiful product, lives up to its name

I didn't even know this particular product existed until I happened to spot it at the drugstore on the Elf shelf. There were only two shades available: Nude Linen and Blushing Rose, and since I couldn't decide what one to try, I got both. Please note that I used this product along with Elf eyelid primer and setting mist. The pigmentation is quite nice - bold, not streaky at all, and it can easily be layered if you do apply it a little too thin in some spots. It also lives up to its name of being smooth and matte. It's a nice, solid shade and when it dries, it feels soft and silky. The doe-foot applicator makes putting this stuff on pretty easy and it also dries super-fast once it's on. Let me talk about the colors themselves. Nude Linen honestly looks like concealer or foundation to me, to the point where if I didn't know any better, I'd probably apply it to my cheeks rather than my eyes. By itself, it's not all that exciting of a color, but it's nicely complemented by touches of darker powder eyeshadow. Blushing Rose was a nice color as well, but I think it missed its calling as a lip product. I wasn't totally nuts about it as eyeshadow, but I found that it makes for a simply GORGEOUS dusty rose lipstick! I'm wearing it on my lips right now and have found that it retains its matte consistency without drying out my lips too badly and it's held up to kissing, teeth brushing, water and coffee. I also haven't noticed any funky tastes or smells even after licking my lips. I realize that's not the intended purpose of this product, but it just looks so much better on the lips than it does on the eyes (at least the Blushing Rose does). It's all good, though - I've been looking for a lip color in this shade for a while and I'm glad I found it! Overall, this is a great product and I'm glad I took a chance on it. I'm happy with both shades and would love to try Soft Beige at some point too. I personally think any of these colors could easily double as long-lasting matte lipstick and that type of versatility makes this product a steal as far as I'm concerned. There is honestly nothing for me to complain about and I swear this isn't a paid review or anything. I'm seldom unimpressed with Elf's products, but I think they went above and beyond with this one.

Wish I Tried Sooner!

I purchased the Nude Linen and Blushing Rose shades of this product after reading all the reviews because one said they made a good eyelid primer. I like to wear a specific kind of liquid eye shadow that have high shimmer & glitter to them and are just beautiful but don't hold up too well through the day when worn on their own. I was hoping that these might be the perfect solution to create a soft matte base to build these other liquid eye shadows on top of. Let me just say, these 2 shades are AMAZING. The Nude Linen shade creates a completely soft matte nude lid (beautiful worn alone or with another shadow on top) and it holds my liquid shadow in place all day. The Blushing Rose shade is so lovely, a pink/mauve/rose color that accentuates the eyes, also beautiful worn alone. I use the Nude Linen shade with gold, nude & bronze glittery shimmery liquid eye shadows on top and the Blushing Rose shade with pink and lavender glittery shimmery shades on top, because when worn alone those types of liquid shadows tend to crease and get splotchy in areas. But not when worn on top of these bad boys! Plus these add depth and vibrancy to those otherwise sheer products. I love how smooth and soft these colors are and that they can be used in lieu of eyelid primer while adding a beautiful flush of matte color that stays put all day! I will never let myself run out of this product, it is an amazing tool to keep in my makeup arsenal! « less

I'm not normally one for liquid or cream eyeshadows because in my experience they've always creased or slid around on my (admittedly pretty oily) lids. I was very pleasantly surprised by this shadow, because it stayed put all day and looked just as pigmented and smooth as when I put it on. It makes a great base for other shadows, or it can be blended out really easily to be worn on its own for the easiest out-the-door look ever. This is probably the one eye product I grab the most when I just need something simple.
