ELF Shimmer Palette Review

Hello ladies!

I am here with yet another ELF review and I’m really excited about this one since it’s my all time favorite product from ELF. I am going  to review the Shimmer Palette which can be used to add glow to the eyes, lips and face.



This palette comes in a sleek black sturdy case containing 4 beautiful cream highlighters in pearl, cream, golden and pink shades. It comes with a mirror attached a tiny brush for application.

Texture and Application:

The highlighters are creamy and not greasy one bit. These cream highlighters are so much fun to work with since the application is super smooth.

Pigmentation and Staying Power:

The highlighters have amazing pigmentation and you need very little product to show results. Staying power is brilliant.

My Take on ELF Shimmer Palette:

This product is by far, my all time favorite product from ELF. I had hit pan on the previous one and especially asked my friend to get this one from New York. (It’s really over priced in Bahrain).  I love how this palette has 4 different shades to choose from. I use the peachy shade on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose and just above my upper lip to add glow to my face. I barely use the pink shade since the blush I use is usually pink. I use the golden and white shades just below my eye brows to highlight the brown bone. As an eye shadow or eye shadow base, it creases A LOT (even with primer). Despite it’s creasing problem, I still use it on the inner corners of the eyes. I haven’t used it on my lips yet and I don’t think I would want to since we have lip glosses to do the shine-job!

The mirror and super cute brush provided make the palette so much more travel friendly. The brush is perfect for applying shimmer to the brow bone as well as inner corners of the eyes.

The shimmer palette contains mineral oil which makes the product rather greasy than normal highlighters. Women with oily skin should skip this product and mostly stay away from highlighters altogether.

Last but not the least, this is the best bet for budget friendly highlighters. You have to try it to believe it!
