My favorite e.l.f. mineral eyeshadows

e.l.f. has some colors that are MADE for me - all sorts of smokey browny purply grays. They look amazing with my skintone and I got me some more of them. First place belongs to Confident, runners up are Socialite and Royal - amazingly beautiful taupeish mixes.
They may look like nothing on the swatches here but on the eyes they really make my (blue) eyes pop! Third place belongs to golden green Earthy, currently not on the pic (btw ignore Seductive, it's rather boring dark color -  black (when dry) or grey (when wet); Smoldering is a dupe for TKB's Antique Silver).

On the other hand I'd also like to post this picture and ask e.l.f., wth? Why are some of the jars half empty? I guess they sell them by weight and some pigments are heavier then others but come on! This is ridiculous.

e.l.f'i mineraallauvärvid on ägedad. Kahjuks on nad vaid pigmendina ning pressitult ei pakuta - see annab tootele muidugi imelise sära kuid samas teeb algajal lauvärvide kasutamise väga keeruliseks (siin on väike nipp - tuleb võtta taskupeegel ja lauvärvide pelaekandmise ajal selle kohale kummarduda - põsed jäävad puhtaks). 
Soovitan soojalt - mõnusad värvid kuid hoiatan, et ilma meigi aluskreemita ei pea nad kuigi kaua vastu.

I'm curious about the difference in contents in these jars. Will you do a follow up posting on it? I wonder what their explanation is for this..

Hi Lise, I've finally got smarter as to why some jars are half empty - apparently the colors that come in a kit are actually supposed to contain less product... One eyeshadow jar when purchased separately contains 0,03 oz of product but when purchased in one of the new sets it's 0,02 oz
