e.l.f. Shimmer Eye Liner Review and Swatches

e.l.f. says:

Instantly brighten eyes with e.l.f.’s shimmering metallic liners that put the spotlight on eyes. The smooth formulation glides on effortlessly without tugging at the delicate eye area. Choose from an assortment of 9 delicious and essential shades designed to add depth, definition and a special sparkle to create a very glamorous look! Pencil includes a convenient sharpener cap for easy use!

These new Shimmering Eye Pencils from e.l.f. are definitely metallic and just gorgeous. They apply like a dream giving the eyes a pop of metallic color. Unfortunately, for me, the liners have a terrible lasting power throughout the day. They wipe away and fade incredibly easily and don't really set on the skin like most liners now do. What I did think was pretty cool was the built-in sharpener in the lid; it makes for a super easy, convenient way to sharpen your liners quickly and even on-the-go.

-very affordable at $1.00 USD each
-good selection of colors (9 to choose from)
-smooth to apply/no tugging on the eye
-great if you love shimmer

-very poor lasting power

These look like beautiful colors. I guess I'll give them a shot. All the Elf products that I've bought I haven't really liked. I bought a pencil brush and it broke! The top came off as soon as I took it off of the package. I bought some cream shadows and even with primer they crease ewwww. Not happy at all. I guess it's true you get what you pay for.

I bought the teal and the plum, but I haven't had much of a chance to try them out yet.

The colors are beautiful, love that Bronze, but I worry about the lasting power. I don't reapply liner during the day but the colors look great!

This review opened my eyes, How smart with a built-in sharpener in the pencap! That is a big + for me! :) I really liked the metallic effect, looks great, I´ve favourized Plum Passion, Grassy Green and boldly bronzed ;)
