ELF Best Friend Eyeshadow Duo in Pink Pal

ELF has always been one of my favourite makeup brands. So, you can imagine my delight when they recently became available again in the UK. Products are available from Superdrug and also from the ELF website. I have ordered from both and have had no issues. I recently saw the Best Friend Eyeshadow Duos on Instagram and knew that I wanted to give them a go. There is nothing better than easy eye makeup! The Best Friend Eyeshadow Duos are not currently available from Superdrug, so I ordered directly from the ELF website. They offer free shipping on orders over £25 – which is so easy to spend. I was extremely shocked to see that the UK site ships from the United States and as I waited for my parcel, began to worry about customs charges. However, it arrived after around 7 working days with no extra charges.

There are five shades on offer in the Best Friend Eyeshadow Duo range. Each duo contains a matte and shimmer shade that compliment each other perfectly. I originally ordered two of the shades available, but later ordered another two. My favourite so far has definitely been the duo in ‘Pink Pal’. I have been applying the pink shimmery shade all over my eyelid and then lightly blending the matte brown shade into the crease. Although an extremely simple look, it is very pretty and one that I have been choosing to wear for work recently. The shimmery pink shade helps to brighten your eyes and definitely helps to make me look more awake – something I need at 5am.

The packaging of the eyeshadow duos is very simple and if I am honest, a little cheap looking. However the product inside definitely makes up for this. Both eyeshadows included in the duo are soft and blend easily. They are nicely pigmented but to make the pink shade ‘pop’ – I hate that phrase – I would recommend using a good eyeshadow base.

I would 100% recommend the ELF Best Friend Eyeshadow duos. They are available online from the ELF website for just £4.50.

Have you tried any of the newer products from ELF? If so, what would you recommend?
