I had been looking for a new way to add some shimmer to my stage make-up. I’m kind of a glitter monster, I’ve had success using glitter liquid eyeliner to either line my eyes or as a shadow, but I felt that my make-up kit needed a fresh sparkle injection for the festive season.
E.L.F (Eyes. Lips. Face) Cosmetics had come to my attention a few times through recommendations from MUA’s and other performers. Their prices are incredibly reasonable and they are an ethical company who don’t test on animals or use animal derived ingredients in their products.
So I checked out their website and I found this:
The E.L.F. Shimmer Palette! It looked like exactly what I wanted, a shimmering, but not glitter, cream. I ordered it, but at £3.75, I wasn’t expecting a whole lot. Then it arrived. A tidily packaged matt black compact, with mirror, applicator brush and four shades of shimmer cream ranging from Champagne to Blush.
I applied one of the lighter colours from eye crease to brow and set it with a matching eyeshadow, followed by my usual routine of eyeliner, mascara and lashes. It looked awesome and really highlighted my brow bone beautifully. It lasted through me teaching a dance class and didn’t smudge or fade. The only thing was that with the product having a greasy texture, I couldn’t apply liquid eyeliner over the top of it. But that’s a pretty easy problem to fix, just don’t put it where you apply your eyeliner, duh.
So if you’re looking for shimmering alternative to glitter, try out the E.L.F. Shimmer Palette.
