elf shimmer liner

For a change from lipsticks and all my lipstick posts I thought I shall review some eye pencils today for you guys. I got this last month in the haul I did from US through a friend and I happened to try these enough. I am not particularly fond of eye pencils but yes if I do use some they need to be soft and staying and should not tug, apart from that the color should be good and flattering with lippy I would wear. The worst part about eye pencils is that not all of them set and then if they don’t, they transfer to the eye lid like on the area of the lid where it would touch while I blink. And then they can look disastrous! I have been out a lot of times with that smudged and smeared and transferred to the top lid.


These elf shimmer pencils are exactly what I described on top.these are gorgeous, smooth, creamy, shimmery and metallic but these do not set !!!!! so that means it can wreck disaster on oily lids like mine. I know one can always set them with a powder of a similar eye shadow but its not always possible when I a hurry. Even with setting with a powder it may not last for more than 4 hours on me and then what!

Elf shimmer eye pencil in twinkle teal:
The color is so gorgeous and teal is one of my favourite color for eye makeup. Teal pencil metallic finish to it and is very very smooth and creamy. So smooth that you can see how it has crumbled while I was swatching it for you guys.the color shows up more aqua on the website but its more green and teal in person and I love however it is. The color is almost metallic and very less and fine shimmer is visible. The sharpener does the job perfectly but the only problem is that the creamy consistency can make a mess in just an extra second of sharpening this pencil. If I set it with a blue eyeshadow the color would alter and even then it would last for four hours. On oily lids, these would transfer to the top in two hours. Everything from the price, shade, softness is great but I just wish they would set in a minute after application. May be that’s too much too ask for a dollar eye pencil.

Elf shimmer pencil in gunmetal:
Silver and grey is another favourite of mine for eyes and I got this one too. the story is the same, gorgeous color. Smooth and creamy, shimmer and metallic finish, great handy sharpener but DOES NOT SET!it will smudge in three hours or so and try setting it with powder but four to five hours which is good enough for non oily lids. The color is dark grey with metallic finish with no shimmer or glitter visible. Totally love the color and I do set it with a grey shadow muting the sheen a bit.

Last word:
For a dollar, these are superb giving u smooth, creamy, soft texture, handy sharpener, great colors but these do not set and are bound to smudge on oily lids. These are so soft that these can make a great eye shadow base too. Totally loved them but just wish they would set. I think these would get over even before I know!i would buy more shades if I get a chance as these are way better than the other eye pencils from essential line.
