Package and Review: Elf Shimmer Products

Recently I got this package of things I ordered from Elf. I got 2 eyeliners, a facial whip, and 2 packs of remover wipes. I will not do a review on the wipes because, well, they're wipes. They do the job they're supposed to do.

Anyway, I got the eyeliner because Elf was having a Labor Day BOGO sale on their favorite products and the facial whip was so cheap, only a dollar. How could I not pass that up?

First I will review the facial whip. It is called e.l.f. Shimmering Facial Whip in the color Persimmon. I wanted Pink Lemonade, but they were out of stock. This color looked close enough to it online, so that's the one I chose. The site says that you can use it on your face, lips, and eyes, but I just use it on my cheeks. Color wise, it can be either strong or light, depending on how much you use. I like to use just a tiny bit because it can be strong. However, it does look natural with a light shimmer. It also lasts a while. The only downside to this is that when you first use it, some white shimmer somes out and it's very runny. I have to squeeze it out on a tissue until color comes out. But, I have figured out that shaking it helps.

The next thing I will review is the Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Iconic Ivory and either Precious Pink or Blissful Blush, I can't remember. What I like is that the cap is a sharpener. To me, that is a very convienent thing because then you don't have to mix colors or try to find a sharpener. On my wrist, both colors look fine and very pretty and shimmery. But my eyes are naturally dark, so the pink doesn't show up that much. The white does, but when I use concealer, it mixes with it and turns a light beige that's hard to come off. It looks like eye crusties or something like that. Not pretty. I am still trying to figure them out, but I think that they have potential.

Here are all three things swatched on my wrist.
