e.l.f shimmer palette has four different shades and there is a clear difference between the colors. So there really is a shade for everyone. The palette comes with a brush which can be good to use when you are using it as a highlighter under your eyebrows or inner corner of your eyes. For applying at the cheekbones, I feel it is easier to use my fingers.
When first applying it, it does look a little grey (a common thing with Korean BB creams) after a little while it will oxidize. During summer time I have to blend it out with a darker shade. I usually blend with Missha perfect cover BB cream in nr 31 (which is way too dark for me so I only use to add warmth to my colder shades).
is filled with sparkling fine glitter which really is a big no no for me. The glitter spreads all over my face and the weirdest part is that I can only see the glitter in artificial light. When I look in daylight I doesn’t see the sparkling at all.
The blush is scented, and it is not a very nice smell at all. I really don’t have a word for it but just not fresh explains at least something.
The color I received is warm rosy beige and it is a really nice color for a highlight. I usually get the once with blue shimmer in them and they really look awful on my skin. I have a warm skin tone and blue highlight shades simply makes me look weird. If you are on the paler side a bluish shimmer might look beautiful on you.
