Each season ELES launches a new makeup look, which is nothing short of amazing- and the autumn look named Berry Crush is no exception. It includes bronze hues of autumn days with the delicious and sumptuous shades of crushed berries, and is a soft and feminine look with bold semi-matte lips, strong youthful brows, soft hazy eyes and a touch of blush. I was lucky to receive some of the products from this look, so here are my thoughts on the *ELES Mineral Makeup Signature Shadow Quad in Fashionista; the Powder liner in Copper, the Blush in Mixed Berries and the Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Blush;

What I Say:

I have previously tried some makeup from ELES Mineral Makeup, including the Liquid Lustre, the Mineral Blush, the Powder Liner, and the Signature Quad in Naturalist and I so love these products and constantly reach for them, so I was so excited when I also received the new autumn Look for trial. 

The Fashionista Quad includes a pale peachy-skin toned shade, a warm dusty pink, a dark plum/aubergine and a dark chocolate brown shade, and shades have a nice pearlescent sheen with a nice satin finish that is not too glittery or shimmery. As with all ELES Eyeshadow quads, the colours complement each other so well and are perfect for use both on their own, but also together in any combination. And because all the colours are so lovely, you will get use out of every single one of them, and not like those Eyeshadow palettes where you only end up using a few of the colours!

The two palest shades, the nude and the dusty pink shades are perfect to use during the day for a simple, and classic day time look. While the darker shades are perfect if you want a more dramatic eye or for night time wear. The dusty pink works well for covering the eyelid, you can then pick either the plum or the chocolate for using on the outer corners and on the crease line, and also to line the eyes with, before you blend it well to soften the look and create the perfect smoky eye. And the nude shade is great to use a highlighter under the brow bone.

 The eye shadows are so lovely to work with, and it is so easy to build up the desired colour, which can be intensified if they are used wet. And they have minimal fallout, and such a great wear, even on my combination skin and slightly greasy eyelids!

The ELES Cosmetics Mineral Powder Liner Pencil in Copper is a medium chocolate brown shade with a nice coppery sheen. I have previously reviewed the pencil in Tornado, which is a darker brown, so I like that this one is slightly lighter in shade, so more perfect for day time wear, plus the shimmer adds a nice touch. The Cobber Powder Liner Pencil is perfect to line the top lash line to define the eyes, and also under the eyes, and smudger in the one end of the pencil makes it easy to create a smudged look that completes the smoky look.


The eyeliner is soft and creamy, so you don’t need to drag and pull at the sensitive eye area, and although my eyes are very sensitive and easily water (especially when exposed to chilly autumn winds!), yet the eyeliner simply stays put all day – but removes so easily with waterproof makeup remover.

Next I apply the Blush in Mixed Berries to the contours or my cheeks (check out my other post about this blush here), and adding a little extra to the apples of my cheek for a more flushed look – which is perfect for bringing a bit of colour and life back into the autumn pale skin. Mixed Berries is such a lovely warm berry shade, that will complement any skin tone, and as with all ELES products it is highly pigmented, so you can apply just a touch of colour, or easily build it up if you are after a bolder look.


Finally, I finish off the Micro Bubble Lipstick in Micro Blush – and this lipstick is nothing short of amazing. The mineral lipstick has micro-bubble spheres that continually release conditioners to keep lips soft and hydrated, and it is without a doubt one of the creamiest lipsticks that I’ve ever tried. It simply glides onto the lips so smoothly, and keeps my lips soft and moisturised all day, and it never sinks into any creases in my lips. And it stays put for good 5 hours, and even survives a light lunch and a coffee.


The Micro Blush is a lovely blue tinged berry shade that gives the lips a nice colour, brightening up and bringing the whole Berry Crush look together. You can apply just a wash of colour by dabbing it on and smearing it out with your fingers if you are after a subtle look, of a few more coats, will give you an intense yet looks with a lovely semi-matte finish.

Overall these products are so amazing. But I am not surprised, as all the products that I’ve so far tried from ELES have impressed me! And combined these products are perfect to create a lovely berry look this season, perfect for all occasions.

Normally I am very conservative when it comes to my makeup, preferring neutral and brownish shades (which is why the ELES Signature Quad in Naturalist continues to remain one of my absolute favourite palettes!) – however, thanks to ELES I have realised that I can still venture a little out of my comfort zone and use other shades, such as plum, and still maintain a classic natural look.
