Review | e.l.f. Shimmer Gloss


I love e.l.f. so much and it really upsets me that I can’t go down to Superdrug or Boots and pick up as many products from the brand as I want because it is only in American stores. Of course, we can order it online here in the UK but I prefer to buy my makeup in the shop so this is upsetting for me.

However I’m quite lucky as I have a friend in America who bought me some e.l.f. products for my birthday which was really lovely of her and I’ve really been loving the products, hence why I am reviewing one of them for you today!

The Shimmer Gloss I am reviewing today is in the shade ‘make a wish’ and I would describe it as a really soft baby pink with a very subtle shimmer. I’m not a huge fan of having glittery lips but the shimmer in this product is so subtle I completely forget it’s there. It is visible when it’s in the bottle but you can’t see any shimmer at all once it’s on the lips.

I’ve been preferring to wear lip gloss rather than lipstick lately because I find lipstick more of a hassle personally but that’s just me! This colour has been perfect for me recently because it’s really neutral as it doesn’t add heaps of colour, it’s just a nice touch of pink to make them stand out a little more.


It’s also a really shiny gloss which I personally really like. It looks stunning on and I really like having a shine to my lips just as much as I love the matte look so it’s nice to be able to mix it up a little bit every now and again!

This doesn’t have the greatest staying power in the world I will admit but it’s very quick and easy to top up during the day so that doesn’t bother me at all. The other thing I like about wearing a lip gloss is that when it does wear off, it doesn’t leave much residue on the lips so it’s obvious you had something on and it’s come off, if you know what I mean. Once it wears off you can’t tell you had anything on basically is what I’m trying to say so if you didn’t want to top it off, you wouldn’t have to!



Finally, I really like the e.l.f. packaging because it’s so simple but it looks really nice and it actually looks more expensive than it is. Having simple packaging either works or it just looks tacky and e.l.f. definitely got it right with their simplicity, so well done to you e.l.f.

Love, Becca

  2. This lipgloss looks lovely, the colour is beautiful. I'm lucky enough to live in Cardiff where ELF have their only European store but now it has sadly shut down which annoys me so much as it was my favourite and it seems as though their site has shut down too! I may have to move to America to get my hands on it! Lovely post, Becca!
