ELF Studio Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow ` Gala & Festivity ` Review &swatches

Hi friends, today i'm going to review another elf products. The name is ELF studio Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow. I have tried these for a while and wanted to share my opinion. Elf always doing a good job to make any dupe for the hype makeup on the market, and these are like an dupe for maybelline color tattoo which is everyone rave about that maybelline. the concept is very similar, a cream eyeshadow which came in round jar packaging. so here is my review :

Product name :
ELF studio Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow

price : 
$3 on the web
IDR 60k / $6 if you are buy this from Indonesian online shop, quite fair price, considering the expensive overseas shipping from US plus import tax.

size : 

whats this? (elf claim) :

Soft and fluffy, these vibrant, shimmering Long Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow colors can be used as eyeshadow or a bold liner. The whipped gel texture is easy to blend and lightweight for lasting comfort and wear. Perfect for highlighting the brow bone and adding extra shimmer for a truly glam look
ingredients :

packaging :

- it's come in the mini round clear jar with the screw top.
- plastic material.
- the clear bottom jar makes you can see what the color inside clearly.
- the downside is, there is no sticker or label on the jar to show the name of the shade.

texture :

- it's totally different with the maybelline color tattoo, it's more dry like an mousse texture with the bouncy effect but i still can feel the creamy feeling on the texture.
- they are have own different texture, i never touch an product which have an feeling like this, it's kinda remind me with the maybelline mouse blush but way more smooth and wet.
- the texture makes this eyeshadow really easy to blend.

color & finish:

i have 2 color from the 7 shades they available :
- gala : is an dark browny color
- festivity:is an plum browny color
- it's super glittery and sparkling. Yes, lot of glitter not shimmer! i hate the glittery things especially for eyeshadow but believe me this kind of one is an exceptional. this eyeshadow have a super gorgeous glittery finish, i can wear it alone. it can make my eyes pop without looking like an disco ball even in the bright sunny day.
- i love the cream finish on my eyelid. it feels very lightweight

pigmentation :

- good pigmentation
- A rating
- one swipe is enough to cover all over the lid
- buildable, a tiny amount is perfect for daily basis uses but you can build more swipe to create a dramatic look for the night time wear.

staying power :
- good. without primer underneath, this eyeshadow can lasts for 6-8 without creasing although the color a little bit fade.

swatches :

my experience :
ELF is one of my most favorite drugstore product, so when they launch  this kind of eyeshadow, i really want to grab them all. however, since i promised not to be a makeup hoarder, i have to choose the most exciting color and eliminate the others. i'm so glad having this eyeshadow, especially for festivity one. the festivity is a very unique purple color, i never found similar color like this on the other brand. it's a perfect eyeshadow to grab when i'm in hurry, i just use my point finger then swipe and dab on all over my lid and up to the crease. i don't have any complain about these eyeshadow, everything is fine. I personally prefer these elf than a maybelline color tattoo since it's more have light feeling on my lids, blendable and buildable.
repurchase? maybe yes. i want to grab all the rest of shades.
