Review: E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadows

I know that these products have been out for a while, reviews all around. Which is fine, I'm just adding my review in the constant revolving basket.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Haul: Target and Harmon, I picked up two of E.L.F.'s Baked Eyeshadows. Yay! My Target finally got them in! (Yes I'm 29 and still get excited over little things like this.)

E.L.F. Baked Eyeshadows
I ended up picking up Burnt Plum and Toasted from the Baked Eyeshadow collection at Target. They had 4 out of the 6 from E.L.F.'s Baked Eyeshadow collection, and I just gravitated towards these two to start off with (lets face it, I'll get the other two).

Packaging: Being the Baked Eyeshadows are part of the studio line for E.L.F. they come in the standard black box packages. The actual eyeshadow package, I was slightly worried about the tops of both eyeshadows because they seemed a little flimsy. At first I thought they were the type of tops that simply snapped on to the bar in the back, but then realized that there is a metal bar going through, which eased my "oh my gosh I'm going to snap the top off!" mind.

Texture: To me, Burnt Plum has a much more silkier feel to it compared to Toasted. Toasted feels slightly rougher. Although the roughness doesn't translate to the eyes at all. 

Color: Burnt Plum is exactly as it sounds. It isn't a vivid plum and definitely has more of a reddish undertone to it. While Toasted is on the lighter scale, a taupe with a possible copper-esque look to it. Both are shimmers.

Final Verdict: I absolutely love these! The application was smooth, with no issues. And they blended beautifully into one another. I would definitely suggest though, use a primer! While I do believe these can do just fine without one (they are buildable), a primer simply makes them really pop! They can also be used wet as well, this I have not yet to try though.

Final Result
Other products used to finish off the look: PIXI Beauty Lid Last Shadow Pen in Shell Sheen, M.A.C. Mega Metal Shadow in Dalliance, M.A.C. Kohl Power Eye Pencil in Feline, N.Y.C. Volumizing Mascara in Extreme Black
