e.l.f. Studio Raspberry Truffle Single Eyeshadow | MAC Twinks Dupe

e.l.f.’s Studio Blushes are such amazing quality, it’s hard to believe that they’re only £3.95 each. After loving the Studio Blushes, I was eager to try the e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow again at just £3.95.. with Raspberry Truffle being my very first shade. There are 15 shades to choose from, and are currently on a 3 for 2 offer on the e.l.f. UK website. Claiming to have a beautiful, soft texture that melts into the skin for a vibrant colour that lasts and can be used both wet and dry.

The compact contains 2.75g of eyeshadow, and a slim mirror within the lid. The packaging is very simple, and cheap.. however with a price of £3.95, that was to be expected. The e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadows are quite small and compact at around an inch and a half in length, so they’d be ideal for travel especially as they’re lightweight too. The packaging is very similar to that of the NARS Single Eyeshadows… minus the rubberised texture.

Raspberry Truffle is a dark burgundy, reddy brown shade containing multi-coloured micro shimmer particles. However it’s such a nightmare to photograph to be able to give an accurate representation of its true form. When I swatched Raspberry Truffle the first time, I was taken aback by how very similar it was to MAC Twinks eyeshadow. They both look very different in their pans, yet when swatched or applied to the lids.. they’re almost identical.

They really are very, very similar.. if anything I prefer the e.l.f. shade over MAC Twinks as Raspberry Truffle is so much more multi-dimensional and pretty. Also e.l.f. Raspberry Truffle has a much better, finely milled texture that really is velvety. I find Twinks to be a little grainy, and it just doesn’t blend as nicely as Raspberry Truffle. If I’d owned Raspberry Truffle before buying MAC Twinks, I’d never have bought Twinks.. as I think the quality of Raspberry Truffle for £3.95 is amazing compared to that of the £10 Twinks.
This is such a beautiful shadow in terms of both shade and texture. It goes well with so many other eyeshadow shades, and never fades or creases either. I find e.l.f. products to be pretty hit and miss, but this is definitely a huge hit and I’m now desperate to try the other shades within the e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow range.
