Thoughts: When I first saw this, I knew this has to be first product to play with. It reminds me of ColourPop Super Shock Shadows (I have Get Lucky and I Heart This).
Now for looks I did...
Kiss True Volume Lashes in Posh and Dose of Colors in Stone from the Terra Collection on my lips.
Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying the product. Out of curiosity, I just sniffed the product and it has some scent. It's not pleasant I must say. Secondly, the consistency is like every other whipped/cream/gel eyeshadows for example ColourPop. If you dip your finger into the eyeshadow, it'll will make a dent. I think it's pretty cool because it's fun to play with. It reminds me of Play-Doh. With products like this, I recommend using your fingers and sponge applicators that come in a palette. I also recommend doing one eye at a time. They tend to dry fast from this type of eyeshadow. This particular eyeshadow from e.lf. is a little bit different. They don't dry fast. They act like regular eyeshadows. For that reason, you can do both eyes at the same time. The pro is that you can blend the eyeshadow with other eye products, and take your time doing it. There really isn't a con depending on what you want. I don't mind that it doesn't dry. Third, the color isn't bright and out there. It's a neutral everyday wear. It applies lightly but you can build the color. I wish it was more opaque but it's pretty decent. Also, there are sparkles in this eyeshadow but it's not huge chunks of glitters. It just looks shimmery on the eyes. Lastly, it lasted all days on me with no creasing.
* No noticeable scent while applying the product.
* Whipped eyeshadow; fun to play with.
* Applies like regular eyeshadows.
* Easy to blend with other eye products.
* Great every day color.
* Color is build-able.
* Glitters that make it look more shimmery.

Would repurchase: Yes.
