Elle 18 Eye Sparklers in Purple Pataka

Hey all,I have been wanting to review this Elle 18 Eye Sparkler in the shade Purple Pataka since long.

So finally it is here in the blog today…

Price: Don’t remember exactly.. INR 85 I think.

Shelf life: 2 yrs.

Packaging:

Black wooden pencil with a transparent cap that fits a little loose.

I love the Elle 18 girl on the pencil though…

The way I see it:

This is my first Elle 18 sparkler & the shade is beautiful in between lilac & purple.

Its got a pearly, sheeny finish & is very creamy for application.

It glides on easily on the lids without any tugging.

The pigmentation is quite low, needs multiple swipes to show up on the skin.

Also fades in say 2-3 hrs. of time after application & would fade much faster on oily lids.

I liked using this is an eyeshadow or eyeshadow base than applying it as an eyeliner… 🙂

No point applying this in the waterline… first it doesn’t show up, second it smudges!

One cannot ask for more in 80-90 bucks eyeliner too.

I don’t think I am gonna pick another one from Elle 18 Eye Sparklers, though they have some good shades to offer.

Here is the swatch under natural light –

The ‘Yay’ factors:

  • Impressive pricing
  • Easily available all over India
  • Nice shades in the offering
  • Cute packaging
  • Pearly finish
  • Creamy
 
The ‘Nay’ factors:
  • Pigmentation is quite low
  • Fades faster
  • Smudges badly
  • Not waterproof too
 
Repurchase/Recommend? – I won’t recommend or repurchase this product. There are many other eyeliners in the market that offer much more, with little more bucks.
