As you guys know if you read my ELF Haul I got one of the smudge pots. I got it in the shade ocean bound. Which is a deep blue shade which isn’t something I usually go for. But given all the hype around the smudge pots I decided to get it anyway and see if it really lived up to the hype.
The smudge pot is a cream shadow which claims to be long-lasting. As I said the blue really isn’t my usual sort of colour. But I have to say I’m so impressed with this. The colour is nice but I found it worked brilliantly as a base for other shadows. The staying power of these is incredible. I used this a few times on holiday and was so impressed by it. You know those days you come home knackered and you just crash out. Well I did that on holiday and when I woke up the next morning the eyeshadow I put on 24 hours before was still perfectly intact. I know how bad it is to sleep with your make up on so you don’t need to tell me off. But can we all appreciate how good the staying power is. I use this as a base for other eyeshadows and it makes them pop. I used this with a couple of my other ELF shadows and it looks incredible. It is easily blended and the pigmentation of the smudge pot is incredible. I cannot wait for ELF to come back to the UK so I can try some more of these in different colours that I will use on a more regular basis. But I think if you are going out for a long day or night then these would be a brilliant choice to use. If you get the chance to try any of these then I recommend you do. I’, already eyeing up the other colour I want in this.
