Review: e.l.f Shimmer eyeliner pencils

e.l.f Essential Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil ($ 1/ Rs.170) is a shimmering metallic eye pencil that glides on smoothly and is available in 9 different shades. Perfect for the eyes this summer. I have with me only 5 shades. Planning on trying the rest.

According to the website:
Instantly brighten eyes with e.l.f.’s shimmering metallic liners that put the spotlight on eyes. The smooth formulation glides on effortlessly without tugging at the delicate eye area. Choose from an assortment of 9 delicious and essential shades designed to add depth, definition and a special sparkle to create a very glamorous look! Pencil includes a convenient sharpener cap for easy use! 

Here are the swatches.
 From left to right:Plum passion,Gunmetal,Boldly bronzed,Twinkle Teal,Black bandit.

My Thoughts:

The Cons:

-Out of them twinkle teal is the least pigmented. I had to swatch it couple of times to get the intensity.
-The colours are good but they don't last long.
-They smudge easily.

The Pros:

-They look great when used alone or with some eyeshadow.
- Inexpensive.
- Nine gorgeous colours.
- The sharpener works.
-They glide on smoothly and you don't need to tug the eye area.

Although they don't last long but if you put similar colour eyeshadow over it then they do stay for quite a while. 

Why I buy them again?

Yess!!! I will because they are inenxpensive and pretty colours too.

Do let me know what you all think?
