e.l.f. Beautifully Bare Smooth Matte Eyeshadow in Soft Beige

Did you all know e.l.f has gotten in on the cream-eyeshadow-in-a-tube party?

From the website: “Create a flawless, natural look with this lightweight liquid matte eyeshadow. This silky smooth formula defines and contours the eyes for long wear. Enriched with Vitamin E to help nourish and hydrate.”

I popped this in my electronic cart because I’m bound and determined to find a cream eyeshadow that works for me.

Sigh. One of life’s greatest struggles.

The packaging is lightweight and just like a lip gloss tube.




Soft Beige is a light tan beige.


It pulls neither pink or gray.

It blends just fine. It applies just fine. The color? It doesn’t really show up. It looks too bland and doesn’t do much on my lids.

The company suggests layering a second eyeshadow over it or using it as a primer. I tried both ways. It still didn’t do much for me.

If you’re thinking of buying this, save your money for something else. Even at $2, it’s a waste of money.
