ELF Green Fields Mineral Eyeshadow Set + Makeup Look

I purchased this set from Target for about $4.99 I believe. I was curious to try their mineral eyeshadows and I figure this set would be perfect.

When I opened the packaging, I was pleased at how pretty the pigment looked. However, I quickly noticed that there wasn't much product considering the size of the container. Weight is 0.02 oz or .57 g.

Earthy is a beautiful shimmery sage color with little hint of gold.
Outdoorsy is a dark forest green with a hint of black and green, teal, and gold shimmers.

I was worried to get fall out with Outdoorsy since the pigment doesn't seem to be as fine as Earthy. Fortunately, when I did the makeup look with these colors, they worked great and I didn't experience any problem. The pigmentation is also nice and blending was a breeze.

I was also excited to try out the new ELF eyeshadow brush. When I opened the package, I was a bit disappointed that the bristles weren't as dense as I would like them to be. It looks pretty flat and tapered. The good thing is that the brush isn't flimsy and offer a good amount of resistance. So far, I haven't experience any shedding.

Overall, I think this is a nice set if you like greens or would like to add more greens to your stash. The value and price is reasonable. I strongly advise the use of a primer or base as these are loose pigments. You can also use them wet for a foiled look.
