ELLE 18 EYE SPARKLER- SWATCHES & REVIEW

ELLE 18 EYE SPARKLERS- SWATCHES & REVIEW

1.5 gms for INR 80

Ingredients:- Only Almond is listed, rest are not known.

Shelf life is 24 months from the date of packaging.

My Opinion:- I love blue on my eyes and that's the reason I picked up the blue from this range. These pencils glide on easily without tugging and pulling my eyelids. Though the blue is not a brightly pigmented shade, its subtle and I like that. A couple of swipes are required for a decently colored line. It smudges immediately if my eyelids are not primed but when I use a primer on my eyelids the line would stay on for about 30 mins and then start fading and become much lighter. But without a proper base the color starts fading, smudging and getting smeared. It also creases if used as shadow but then I am not the one to surrender so soon. So now I top it up or simply smudge it with a similar blue shadow. And I am liking the blue shade so much that half of the pencil is now gone :D Right now I am planning to get the green and purple ones.

Pros:- Available in pretty shades
Very Cheap
Packaging also very girlie and attractive
Easy to sharpen

Cons:- Smudges and Creases like hell
Stings like hell if used on the waterline

                   I rate this product 3 out of 5 and I am about to get the green and purple ones.

beautydiva said...

@anonymous- yes these sharpeners are actually 2 different sized sharpener attached in 1, a sharpnr for normal size and another sharpnr for jumbo pencils. ohh yes they cut through all materials the pencils come in. About the cap, either use an old cap from a pen if it fits or ask for a spare cap at the cosmetics counter. Please refer to the review of lakme duo sharpnr in my blog once. You will get an idea. Thanks for being here :)
