Happy December and welcome to Blogmas Day One! I can’t believe it’s already December, Christmas will be here before we know it. So, I did a little Black Friday shopping and I thought it would be fun to start off Blogmas with a review of one of the items I bought, the e.l.f. Eye Candy Eyeshadow Duo Set. You guys know that e.l.f. is one of my favorite drugstore brands, so when their holiday collection came out there were a few things I had my eye on and this was one of them.
With this set you get three eyeshadow duos and one eyeshadow brush. This was $5.00 in-store and it’s $5.00 on the e.l.f. website.
I do have a couple of their brushes but this is the first straight up eyeshadow brush of theirs I have. I love the color, and it’s really soft.
All of the eyeshadows have a swirl pattern on the lid so they look like little peppermints. Each duo has a matte and a shimmer. The first duo has an orangey/brown matte and a gorgeous coppery shimmer. The matte shadow is so smooth, they all are and this shimmer is so pigmented.
The second duo has a deep chocolate brown matte and an off white/cream shimmer. The shimmer is on the lighter side so on first glance I think it would be a perfect highlight shade under the brow or in the inner corner of the eye. Although I do want to see how it would be on the lid.
And the last duo has a nice plum colored matte and nice pinky/purple shimmer. Typically when I wear purple shadows, which isn’t very often, I go for much darker or much lighter but these are both really pretty so I’m excited to play around and see what looks I can come up with.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys have purchased, or been gifted, this set I’d love to know which shadows are your favorite and which holiday sets you’re hoping to get/are you buying for yourself this holiday season?
Until next time, have fun creating looks and welcome to Blogmas :).
