These eye sparklers come in a small chubby stick format with a plastic cap. These sticks are black in color with the picture of Elle 18 girl on it, In all the packaging is quite cute, the only issue being that the plastic cap is not that tight and it comes off easily so you need to be careful with that. Also these are not twist up ones and are sharpen able ones which do cause product wastage to quite an extent
These eye sparklers are creamy but not intensely creamy. They glide on easily without any tugging or pulling.
Ingredients list is not listed anywhere, not even on their official website. They have only mentioned almonds, which is pretty bad because I like to know what exactly I am applying on my skin

My Experience with ELLE 18 eye sparklers
From the time I purchased it I was very excited to try it on. The color I got was blue blast, it is a beautiful blue color with slight amount of shimmer in it, but little did I know these were going to be disappointing. I applied it at 8 in the morning before leaving for college and at almost 10 when I checked myself in the mirror I was horrified, it was smudged pretty badly on my crease area creating a mess. I thought maybe that’s because I have oily skin. I asked my friend, who has normal skin to try this on, but the same happened in her case, just that this sparkler stayed a little more time intact on her eyelids compared to mine. I have also tried using an eye primer beneath it, but that also doesn’t help much. As I love the color so much, I don’t feel like throwing it, so I use it as a base to my eyeshadow, as in I use the same colored eyeshadow on top of it to make it stop from smudging, and yes it does work. Following powder eyeshadow on top of it, it stays for almost 3 hours without smudging
Whether I would recommend ELLE 18 eye sparklers
I don’t think I would recommend these to oily skinned beauties, because they will smudge easily on their eyelids, but they can give it a try by setting it with loose powder or eyeshadow, because elle 18 has pretty attractive colors also they are very cheap. Dry skinned beauties can definitely give these a try, because they will stay quite long on their eyelids compared to oily skinned beauties.
