Elf Studio Line Eyeshadow Review

So I recently made a small order on, because I'd heard so many good things about this website and its products so I figured why not try a few things out? I ordered four of the Studio Single eyeshadows, they offer a very wide range of different colors, but these were the ones I liked and wanted to get. All of these eyeshadows were € 4,00 each, which is really reasonable, given the amount of product you get.

Wild Wheat :
Wild Wheat is kind of a warm, golden brown color with a little bit of a golden shimmer to it. The shimmer looks very prominent in the pan but doesn't show up that much when applied. Its consistency is a tad bit chalky, though.
Raspberry Truffle :
This is by far my favourite color out of all of them. It's a really nice, burgundy-brown color that also has a light shimmer to it. This particular color has the nicest consistency, in my opinion, it has a very smooth, satin finish which makes it easy to apply.
Charcoal :
At first, like a lot of people, I was a bit disappointed with how light this color is. I was under the impression that it was going to be a nice charcoal black-ish color, but it's really a dark grey with (again) a light silver shimmer to it. Like Wild Wheat, this one feels a bit chalky, which is kind of a bummer, because it's such a gorgeous color.
Oatmeal :
This color is very similar to Wild Wheat, only a bit lighter plus it has a silvery shimmer to it rather than a golden one. Again, like Wild Wheat and Charcoal, this color feels very chalky, nevertheless it's a very nice, neutral color.

I used an eyeshadow primer to do these swatches. When you apply these eyeshadows without a decent base, they hardly show up, all you get is shimmer, but when applied with a primer underneath, the colors are very nice and vibrant.

Hope this review is helpful to you guys!
