ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream Review

I only have three of ELF Duo Eyeshadow Cream shades which is in Black Licorice, Sugar Cookie and Butter Pecan. Let’s see what they claim.

‘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.’- eyesfacelips.com

The actual product does looks like what it looks like from the web.Only the Black Licorice looks a little darker that it seems from the web. It comes with a screw -on lid which makes opening it easy.

As you can see from the swatches it looks quite pigmented and it’s non-matte, totally metallic. It may look pigmented from the swatches but the color build-up took some time, therefore it could look pretty sheer.

This is the ingredient listing for it. I didn’t have any irritation from it but this comes handy as always to anyone that has sensitive skin.

My verdict:
It creases when using it alone because the cream eyeshadow doesn’t finish off dry. It stays creamy but I like to use it as a base because it enhances the next eyeshadow shade to be used. With this technique, it just doesn’t crease. Just to be on the safe side, please use eye primer. Using finger to do the color build up maybe poor but using synthetic brush does the job better. Blending can still be done, not too difficult at all. My Butter Pecan somehow smelt like ‘old cosmetic’ but the rest doesn’t smell at all. That’s just weird isn’t it? I still think that it’s a good grab depending on how you want to use it.

These are not available in Malaysia. You may purchase them at EyesFaceLips.com or sprees that being held at LowYat.net. It’s only for USD1.


  • Good eyeshadow base
  • Good blending
  • Cheap and affordable


  • Creases when wear it alone
  • One of it smelt like ‘old cosmetic’
  • Not available in Malaysia

My rating: 4/5
