E.L.F: smudge pots – cruisin’ chic & wine not

This is quick, user-friendly makeup at its best!

The E.L.F. smudge pots are not a new product, but they are new to ME this year.  They are really great quality, cream shadows.  I own Cruising’ Chic and Wine Not and both colours work well as a base shadow as well as on their own.  For an easy day look these make excellent single-shadow looks!


I believe they have had a recent facelift in terms of packaging and I very much enjoy the glass pot which I think looks quite high end.  If you have issues with dipping your finger into a product in a pot this does work just fine with a dense shader brush when packing on the lid and blends out well with a synthetic bending brush.  I have also used these with a sponge applicator just to apply to the lid and then I blend them out with my finger.


Cruisin’ Chic is a beautiful taupe shade.  This is such a beautiful shadow on its own but it also works so well as a base under all kinds of neutral shadows.

Wine Not is a deep mauve colour which is also extremely pretty.  This gives a more dramatic look, but it is extremely wearable.  There is something very feminine about this shade.

I love both of these colours.

These cream shadows blend very well, and when they set, they last ALL day, even in very humid weather.  They have a thin but very pigmented formula, they don’t feel oily and they set totally dry.  I just find that these are so user friendly and so fast to apply which I really appreciate.


I can’t recommend these enough to be honest.  If you can get your hands on these smudge pots from E.L.F. definitely give them a go.

Have a fantastic day!
