My Thoughts: I absolutely adore these eyeshadows! I can't believe the quality you get for only $3. This is definitely one of the best e.l.f. products they make. Sometimes it can be hit or miss, and typically I'm not a fan of their pressed eyeshadows. These, however, are a different story. These are much more pigmented, and the color payoff is both brighter and longer lasting. I also find little to no fallout at all from these.
I have three different colors, although I only showed two in this photograph. I first heard about these from a video by Emily from Beauty Broadcast on YouTube. (I caution you if you watch her videos, you're going to be making a list for the drugstore so you can go shopping! This woman is the queen of finding the best low-budget products, and she's probably the reason I have so many drugstore brands in my bathroom now. Which if you'd asked me a year ago, I'd have told you I hate drugstore brands!) She recommended the three colors I picked up, but after trying them out I think I'm going to go back and get the palette next.
The colors shown in the photo are Toasted and Burnt Plum. The other color I have at home is Bark.
I've only tried them dry, but since it's a baked eyeshadow (which is almost the same thing as a pressed pigment in my opinion, since they're a much more concentrated color than a traditional pressed eyeshadow) they can be used with a damp brush for even more concentrated color.
Final Verdict: They're really missing out on huge profits only charging $3 for these! In a blind test, I'd guess they were a much more prestige brand based on the quality of the shadows.
