e.l.f. Brightening Eye Color in Ethereal - Swatches

I was just going through the 90 posts in my blog's poor draft folder and came across this one, which I seem to have started way back in November 2010! I started to delete it, but figured that I might as well just publish it in case someone is curious about this eye color. I originally planned to do a tutorial to accompany this, but to be honest I don't think I've used this quad more than once or twice in the 2+ years I've had it!
Other than looking way too matte, the official photo is pretty close this time.

The Ethereal quad is a sort of shimmery twist on neutrals. The colors are very subtle, it was hard to get a swatch photo where they even really showed up.

Um, you will want to mentally flip this image upside-down to match the quad pic above! Sorry about that.

Given that this is only a dollar, it's not a bad buy (especially if you wear a lot of browns), but it's not something that I ever really use.  As you can tell from my photo, the colors aren't super pigmented. Maybe I should play around with this set a bit since I'll need neutral eye looks when I'm back working at Disney? The colors definitely fit that whole natural look. 

There you have it! Nothing earth shattering today, but hopefully this will be helpful to someone. 
(Post isn't sponsored; I bought this with my very own dollar.)

I'm glad you posted this, I like the colors, I have Hazel eyes and these colors are along the lines of my usual-but with a bit more shimmer. As you said-for the price you can't go wrong. I'll grab e.l.f to try something new and/or for my 14 yr old who changes her style on a daily basis. Thank you! ~Raine~
