ELF makeup swatches + review

Hello ladies!! (:
I was clearing my makeup a few days ago & i came across the ELF makeups which i've been using since i first started makeup. But somehow i stopped using them & it's already been more than 3 years. They're most probably expired, but i wanted to do some swatches before i throw them away. (I know, i'm wasting money! T.T) HUGE post ahead!!!

EYESHADOWS
ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad in Silver Lining

Purplish eyeshadow quad, good for soft smokey look. The colors are matte and slightly chalky, not very pigmented, need a few swatches to get the colors out (especially white).

ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad in Pretty n' Pink

Pretty colors! Good for creating soft, romantic look. This quad is less chalky & more shimmery as compared to Silver Lining.

ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad in Drama

Eyeshadow quad for creating smokey look! The black & whites are matte, silver & charcoal are more shimmery. They are chalky & not very pigmented, need a few swatches.

Pros
- ELF has wide range of colors, good for people who like to experiment with colors.
- Cheap, quality considered good for the price paid.

Cons
- Not really pigmented
- Chalky
- Sponge applicator turns yellow
ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream in Mocha Swirl

Their eyeshadow creams are quite good! Pigmented and easy to apply! The colors are pretty too!

Pros
- ELF has wide range of colors, good for people who like to experiment with colors.
- Cheap, quality considered good for the price paid.
- Pigmented & easy to apply

Cons
- Oily
- The colors has big contrast


ELF Essential Brightening Eye Liner in Black


The color doesn't come off easily, it smudges & fades off. I don't like it :(

LIPS

ELF Essential Hypershine Lip gloss in Joy
Has cotton candy scent & is sweet (LOL i tasted it :P) Glossy with abit of sheer color.

Pros
- Pretty & nice colors
- Cheap, quality considered good for the price paid.
- Nice scent

Cons
- Sticky


FACE

ELF Essential Natural Radiance Blusher in Shy

I like the color, like the name of the blusher (shy) the color is soft & natural looking.

ELF Essential Shimmering Facial Whip in Pink Lemonade (3rd from picture)

Honestly, i have no idea how to use this because they are wayyy too shimmery & unnatural! I don't wanna look like a disco ball when i go out.. kekeke!

That's all the ELF products i've got! (not really a huge post huh? :/)

I don't think i will repurchase them since i already can't finish them.
Okay, that's all ladies!
I will have more swatches post coming up! :P
Byebye!
