Review: E.L.F Studio Baked Eyeshadow Trios!

Stunning Shadows!

 E.L.F Studio Baked Eyeshadow Trios
I'm a huge fan of the E.L.F baked eyeshadows so when they released these trios I was super excited! The colors were so pretty in the pan and even prettier when swatched. Just like other baked shadows you can use these wet or dry so it's really versatile. For only $4... it's a steal. Now, on the E.L.F website there's a "limited quantities available" alert so if it's something you'd like make sure to order it before it's gone! There's four trios available and I have all four to review for you :-)

The packaging is simple, just like the other baked shadows. I'm really happy that the the shadows are individually large enough for you to get your brush in, sometimes brands miss that and it becomes a mess. I also love how they look when used wet! The color payoff is awesome when used that way and gives a lot of dimension to your look. Over primer they last all day with no issues, pretty good for $4 right? Here are the swatches:

*Peach Please- I'm in love with the center shade, so beautiful all over the lid! The brown leans more on the bronze side, perfect for deepening up the look. The lighter shade is a pretty yellow gold color, not the most pigmented but can still be used as a brow bone highlight! :-)

*Brown Bonanza- just look at that copper gold... another one I love!  So pigmented and smooth, really great formula! The brown in this trio is not as metallic as the rest, more of a satin finish which is great for blending with a light hand. The lighter shade leans more of champagne color, lacks in pigmentation but can be used over the brown for a nice sheen.

*Lavender Love- even though I don't wear purple shadows too often I still love them! This trio is really nice but the most powdery of the bunch. I did experience some fall out with the first two shades but a sticky base would fix it. The lightest shade is my favorite in this trio, it's like a taupe-lavender, really unique!
*Smoky Sea- this trio truly impressed me! I don't tend to wear blues but the color combo in this trio is so in sync. I was inspired immediately when I saw a fellow blogger create a smokey eye with this trio and it was stunning! All the colors are nice in pigmentation, no complaints with this one.

Bottom line: These trios are great! I really enjoy the baked formula and how you can control how bold you want your look to be. I would skip on the Lavender Love because it wasn't up to par with the rest of them. Other than that they are great quality and something that's worth every penny. I hope they're still available for purchase!  :-)
