elf Long-lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow vs. Smudge Pot
Ever since I got a few of the Elf Smudge Pots, I have been obsessed. $2 (though,looks like they are now $3) for a creamy, long-lasting cream shadow that looks great alone or as a base. The shades are quite nice, but I think I have all the colours I wanted, so when I saw this rosy, quartz shade, Soiree, in the Long-lasting Lustrous formula I had to give it a go.
You would think they would be the same, but they are entirely different texture-wise. The Long-lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow (quite the alliteration) is a whipped texture. Very fun to poke, but a bit more tricky to pick up product, while the Smudge Pot is a true cream. Pictured here are the LLLE in Soiree and the Smudge Pot in Cruisin' Chic. The Long-lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows are also more glittery. Though on the eye, it appears more metallic. I would say they are a little less pigmented than the Smudge Pots when comparing one swipe, but it's easy to build up the intensity. They both have longevity in common. If you are a fan of the Smudge Pots and want some more shades, I definitely recommend the Long-lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows.
Do you have any of the elf Smudge Pots or Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadows?
