E.L.F. Brightening Eye Colors: Teal Dream, Drama, and Rocker

Hello!! Sooo.. onto the next few eyeshadows from E.L.F.'s Brightening Eye colors! These three are colorful and look great for a fun summertime look on the boardwalk. The three quads I'll be reviewing today are Teal Dream, Drama, and Rocker.

Teal Dream:
Best Color(s): The best colors in this quad are the last two colors. They have the most pigment (although the third one is more pigmented than the fourth), and they are very smooth and add a great pop of color to any look.
Worst Color(s): The worst colors are the first two, especially the second one. I literally had to dig in the color to get any pigment, the little color that showed up seemed iridescent. The first color is very chalky.
Would I repurchase/recommend: Probably not, although the last two colors are good, I feel that I have enough greens to go without this quad due to the first two colors being duds.


Best Color(s): The last three are great colors. They all have great pigmentation and go on smoothly. The only problem I could find was that the colors were a bit soft, so you need to apply them with a light hand.
Worst Color(s): Maybe the first one because when I first got this quad, the first color was great and went on smooth, however, after about two weeks it seemed to dry up.
Would I repurchase/recommend: Yes. It is one of the best E.L.F. quads and it is perfect for a smokey look. I wold definitely repurchase this item again.


Best Color(s): The second and last colors are the best. The second is a beautiful soft peach that looks great on probably any skin tone. The fourth color is a great nice smokey black/grey.
Worst Color(s): The worst colors are the first and third colors. The first one was chalky and had a lot of fallout because of the glitter. The third color looks darker in the pan than it shows on the skin.
Would I repurchase/recommend: Yes because the good colors in this quad allow you to create a good look with the use of those two colors alone.

Best Quad out of the three: Drama. This is the perfect quad for anyone who likes a smokey eye. It contains the perfect(minus the highlight) colors to make smokey eyes while traveling.  
Worst Quad out of the three: Teal Dream, This is a quad I could do without. Although there are good colors, it isn't really worth the amount of effort it takes to create a look with this quad.

Overall, these quads were okay I would like to see the highlight colors improved and hopefully they will try to eliminate some of the chalky-ness in a lot of the colors. 

Til' next time,
