FOTD: ELF Quad in "Ivy"



This look was done using the ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad in Ivy.

The quad retails for $1 from Target or EyesLipsFace.com and probably wherever else ELF is sold.



I recently did another post talking about the same line of quads in a different color, Drama.  Though they're the same line of quads, the quality between the two differs VERY much.



I wasn't impressed at all with this quad.  Was it a waste of a dollar?  You know, maybe.  The quality is just not great.  The colors are not very pigmented and quickly turn "muddy" when you're trying to blend them.  The only thing that really saves this look is the eye liner - not even an ELF product.


Main colors I used:
  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Original
  • ELF Brightening Eye Color Quad in Ivy
  • Smashbox e/l in Wish (sparklie dark green)

ELF Quad in Ivy.


Have you all tried this palette?  Did you guys have the same problems?

Looks great, even though it was hard to work with.

I have all these $1 quads and am wearing the Butternut one today. It's nice but the lighter colors are very sheer, which is okay if that's what you're looking for. It's pretty hit and miss with them but yeah...the green one doesn't look great either.

But...you're gorgeous...you have amazing lashes...and I just started following your blog. :D
