Eyes Lips Face/Elf has added four new shades to their mineral eyeshadow collection for the spring/summer season. The shades are Beachy - a dark blue with blue shimmer, Dreamy - an aqua/turquoise with shimmer, Outdoorsy- Very deep blackish green with green shimmer, Smoldering -A purple toned gray.
Swatched above from left: Beachy, Dreamy, Outdoorsy, Smoldering
Beachy is a dark blue and appears matte on the skin, but has blue glitter when it hits the light. The texture of this shade is different from the other three colors since it isn't as shimmery.
Dreamy is a really pretty aqua shade. I thought it was going to be much more turquoise/green toned according to the pictures on the elf website, but its more aqua/blue with turquoise leans. This shade is very shimmery like most of the mineral shadows and is extremely metallic looking when used wet.
Outdoorsy is perhaps my favorite elf mineral shadow ever. It appeared to be just a dark green on the website, but it is more of a black dipped green with gorgeous green shimmer. I don't have any colors close to this and it is super pretty to use for smokey looks and would even work as an eyeliner. If you are going to pick one shade, choose outdoorsy.
Smoldering is a silver with purple undertones to it. It almost appears to have a duochrome if you use it wet, but not quite. It appears kind of metallic even when used dry and this would be great used as an eyeliner as well as a shadow.
Overall, I really like the elf mineral shadow line. My favorite shade is from these is definitely Outdoorsy and my least favorite is Beachy because I like more of a shimmery finish to my mineral shadows. All the shades are very pigmented, smooth and easily blended. They are an amazing deal for only $3 a shade.
