Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast Review
I can’t have enough of eye pencils just the way Neha can’t have enough of lipsticks 😛 and that’s why she is my lipstick gal :puchhi: Okay, so knowing my fetish for eye pencils and that too coloured ones, my friends keep picking up stuff for me; one of my friends gifted this eye sparkler to me when the new range was launched. I had quite forgotten about it until recently when I stumbled upon it, so I thought of sharing my experience with you all on this eye sparkler.
Product Being Reviewed:
Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast.
INR 85. The quantity being offered is 1.5 gm. These come in thick kajal-like sticks, more or less like NYX jumbo pencils, though I haven’t used those, but seen a lot of pictures and read a lot of reviews here at IMBB. The cap at the top is not sturdy and may break if fallen accidentally or otherwise.
Complete list not given, only almond is mentioned.
Silver Spark, Purple Pataka, Gun Powder, Green Grenade, Blue Blast.
My Take on Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast:
Well, these eye pencils are not something to die for. Though they are soft, glide on effortlessly without any tugging or pulling, still they are not indispensable in your vanity case. Let me start by describing the colour. It is a nice indigo-based blue which shows up only if swiped multiple times. The colour as such is very pretty but the staying power is average. Also, it smudges a bit. I tried using it as an eyeshadow, but sadly it creased.
The first time I used it on my waterline, it stung like hell and my eyes were all watery, but the same did not happen the second time, so now I can use it even on the waterline.
On the eyelid, it does smudge and if you have oily eyelids, please don’t forget to use a primer underneath. One more problem which I faced with this eye pencil was that I had to sharpen it a lot to get a pointed tip and that pointed tip still was not sufficient to draw thin lines, pheww, that much sharpening every time leads to a lot of product wastage.
All in all, a decently priced eyeliner pencil which is doing not even an average job.
Summarizing the pros and cons:
Pros of Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast:
- Glides on smoothly on the waterline.
- No tugging or pulling.
- Reasonably priced.
- The shade is a very pretty indigo blue.
Cons of Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast:
- It creases if used on the eyelid.
- Smudges and smears after only 2 hours.
- Stings like hell the first time. For me, the stinging stopped thereafter, but my sister can’t stand these pencils because these sting her eyes every time.
- Need a lot of sharpening and hence a lot of product is wasted.
- Can’t draw thin lines or winged liners with thick eye sparklers.
- The cap is not very sturdy.
- Full list of ingredients not mentioned.
- Not very pigmented, multiple swipes are needed for the colour to show.
Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend Elle 18 Eye Sparklers Blue Blast?
No, I will not repurchase. I shall search out for the same shade in some other brand. I will not even recommend, no doubt they are dirt cheap, but quality can’t be compromised.
2.75 out of 5.
