Review: E.l.f. Duo Eye Shadow Cream

Where I bought these and for how much??
I bought them online on the elf website for $1 a piece

What the elf website states:
Express yourse.l.f. with the easy to blend, crease resistant, creamy duo eye shadow colors. Each gorgeous shade can be worn alone or together for a dramatic effect. The soft-blending formula can also be layered under powder eye shadow to set the color in and keep it lasting vibrant all day.

Directions:
Apply shadow to upper eyelid, blending in the lighter shade to illuminate and the darker shade for contouring and lining to achieve desired effect.

What I love about them:
In my opinion I love these they are a perfect base..the loose eyeshadow really grab on to these, for a dollar a piece i couldn't have made a better purchase, ..the colors within the duos go very well with each other. My fave is olive...why cuz I love the green in this duo..I would actually compare these to my revlon cream shadows..they almost have the same consistency..to check out swatches for revlon creme shadows..click here,
so if u dont mind spending $1 on a really good base for their price dont be afraid to pick up these duo creme e/s form elf

What I don't love:
They do crease alot..u have to keep these below ur crease in order to avoid this problem and also use a primer first..also while swatching I noticed that mocha swirl, butter pecan and berry mix look alot alike so i would recommend just picking out one out of these three. The other three do have very pretty different shades..

So on to the swatches!!!

Thanks for the review!! I always wondered about these but if they crease they most likely won't work for me since I have oily lids sux too cuz they're pretty colors.

Personally they don't crease on me.

I don't have oily eyelids.

I find they do not crease if you apply primer (as we all should of course) and tap the brush before applying!!

Thanks for the reviews Sof!!! I love e.l.f.
