ain't that sweet is a sheer pink that i use a nude glow eyeshadow with to really bring out my eyes

- Elfcosmetics User

i think that perhaps the light pink against my fair skin tone probably also contributed to its sheer appearance, however all of these would make excellent primers/bases for other eyeshadows

Caused Eyelid Irritation!

At first I was really pleased with this product, but after wearing it a few times I started to experience itchy, swollen eyelids. Not the entire eyelid, just small areas and along the lashline. It would always happen at the end of the day and would get better once I took my make-up off. It took me a few weeks to narrow it down from other eye products, but yes, it was definitely this eyeshadow. Using a primer underneath offered no protection. I wish I knew what ingredient caused this problem for me -- I do not consider myself to have sensitive skin. It's a crying shame because otherwise this is a fantastic product. I can't give it 5 stars because I basically had to throw it away. I wouldn't recommend a product with irritating ingredients to anyone.If you want to buy this product anyway... I got it in Cruisin' Chic, which another reviewer recommended. I loved the shade as an everyday shade that seemed to go with just about anything I wore. The product was easier to apply that I anticipated - I just used an eyeshadow brush. It seems like the product would last a long time given the tiny container it's in. It lasts all day and doesn't budge or crease - the part that I loved best! If you buy it, hope you didn't experience what I did. Less

I love them

I bought this in the shades coco cutie, gotta glow, ain't that sweet, back to basics, cruisin' chic, and brownie points and I love them all! very creamy, very pigmented, and also very blendable. I usually just wear these as an eye shadow base or I just blend them all over the lid with my finger. I have normal lids and they last all day on me and when I use them under eye shadows they help the color pop and they help my eye shadow last longer. Like many eye products I'm sure you can lengthen the wear time by wearing a primer underneath. By the way, these are best applied with your finger and blended out at the edges with a fluffy brush (I use elf's studio crease blending brush)

Ride or Die Eye Product

I own this in Cruisin' Chic and I am beyond obsessed. this is by far my favorite eye product I have ever used. The staying power and pigmentation blow my mind. I have oily, hooded lids, but once it sets this product will. not. budge. I will say that it's not the most blendable, so don't buy it with hopes of using it in your crease. it's definitely more of an all-over-the-lid product. I apply it using a flat synthetic packing brush after smoking out my crease and it gives me a gorgeous look that will last all day. I can't wait to buy more shades!

Applies Nicely, Stays Put, Doesn't Crease

I bought these in a few different colors and every single one of them stays put once dry. They dry quickly enough that you don't have to wait a long time, but slowly enough that you have enough time to work with it once you've had some practice. This doesn't crease and it is not liquidy in any way. It is VERY soft kind of like a room temperature butter substitute, but personally I think that makes it easier to apply. Highly pigmented and beautiful colors. I do personally have some trouble applying it to where it looks nice, but I'm also somewhat of a beginner with eyeshadow so I'm sure 99.9% of that is user error and inexperience because it blends very nicely. I think I just need to find the right tools to use to apply it accurately.

Fantastic pigmentation

I own 9 of the 11 shades of this eyeshadow and I love every single one. The texture is creamy and applies very easily with a brush (or your fingers). The color lasts all day and generally doesn't crease for me when I use the elf eyelid primer. These eyeshadows blend really well (I generally use them with the elf baked eyeshadows) My favorite color is Cruisin Chic - it's a versatile color that works well for daytime looks and nights out.My only complaint is with the Aint That Sweet shadow that, for some reason, is a LOT creamier than the other shadows in this collection and tends to crease/slide. This isn't usually a problem because I'll just use less of the product so it stays put.I would love to see elf come out with a metallic green/gold color for this line and maybe to test out some matte shades.Overall I love it. Less
