ELF shimmer eyeliner pencils review

I got tempted by these ELF shimmering eyeliner pencils. They come in all sorts of eye-catching colors...Lets see the outcome of these...

E.L.F's description:
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!

My opinion:
I was surfing through the website when I came across these strikingly colorful eyeliner pencils.These surely deserved a try.The quality is quite good for the price, they are creamy,the colors show up(some colors only) unlike other inexpensive makeup , the glitter does not separate and smudge all over the face and they last long enough however if you are a working woman then you need something that lasts longer plus they come in a lot of shades so you have a variety to choose from.However some bad points are that they don't last for more than four hours , the quantity is not much and they are not meant for use on the waterline.If you do apply it on the waterline , the next second it disappears. The pencils have a sharpener cap that makes it easy to sharp it instantly and the tip of a specific color does not get messed or mixed up with the remains of other sharpened colors.I do not regret buying these as I expected some boot-licks in mind keeping the cost in mind. If it had to  be perfect then I would expect long lasting effects , more quantity (would last for a month or a two only for people who do not use it frequently).

Swatches and pictures:
(Left to right: plum passion , twinkle teal , boldly bronzed)

I got the following colors because:
Twinkle teal: It seemed bright,playful color and a unique teal and i love teals
Plum passion : It was a beautiful unique purplish plum color
Boldly bronzed : You do find golden eyeliner but this was a rare bronze with golden undertone

Out of 5:
Quality : 3.5
quantity: 3.5
Packaging :4
Overall : 3.5
Will I buy this again? Only if i need one.

I bought these from for PKR 170/- only. I received the order in 2 days and so it was good service while I ordered this on Sunday.

Hope this was helpful
Thanks for stopping by,

  1. swatches are great,,,looks pigmented

  2. I was thinking of getting the NYX slide on pencils because those are gorgeous for some fun color on my bottom lashline but since i saw your post on these I think i'll get these first since they're 7 dollars cheaper than the NYX ones and because i cant actually find the NYX ones in a store near me...:-) thanks for the review...otherwise i wouldnt have remembered these.

  3. Your are welcome...yeah you can really count on these :P


Your lovely comment will make my day :)
