ELF Smudge Pot in Crusin Chic


Color me surprised: The ELF Smudge Pots are amazing little devils! Well, I’ve only tried one, and that’s the shade Crusin Chic. I can’t believe the staying power on this cream shadow. I wear it as a base, and it does not budge until I remove it, and that’s usually 12-14 hours later. These have some major staying power!


The texture of the Smudge Pot is very creamy; much creamier than other cream eyeshadows I have. It’s easy to use too much on the first try if you aren’t careful. I thought it was going to be harder to the touch like a MAC Paint Pot or Maybelline Color Tattoo, but this is a little more “whipped” in consistency, though it is not a mousse.

Crusin Chic is beautiful worn alone or with other shadows over it. I love it with my new MUFE palette, and my new favorite combination is using with So Quiche from Colour Pop. I have completely ignored my other cream shadows because I love Crusin Chic so much!

The color is a brown taupe shade and it is very shimmery. I find that it is cooler in tone on my lids, but works well with warm and cool shadows. I don’t need to wear a primer underneath because it stays just fine without it.

I paid $3 for Crusin Chic at Meijer. I would repurchase and definitely want to check out some other shades to see if they are as great as this one!

    This is the best one, though brownie points is also good if you want a darker look! I find ain’t that sweet creases on me.

    I love Cruisin’ Chic! It’s the best of the bunch. I’ve found the lighter shades (I also have the the pink and the vanilla colours) have a very different formula and not in a good way. They are a lot more sheer and less pigmented.
