Today I am going to be reviewing the ELF All Over Cover Stick in Persimmon which is essentially a cream stick highlighter similar to the Benefit’s Watts Up.
The All Over Cover Sticks are designed so that they can be used on the face, eyes and lips however I think there are some shades that I would only ever use in one area. I would never consider using Persimmon on my lips although maybe I would use it on my eyes. I use this as a highlighter.
The packaging is pretty basic it comes in a white container with a clear lid, the pretty has now rubbed off as find a lot of ELF products to do. Considering how much you pay for the products it isn't too big of an issue but just something to not.
I apply this directly to my cheek bones and blend it with the Real Techniques Multi- Task Brush. Persimmon is a pink toned highlighter and it gives a gorgeous sheen to the cheek bones. I find that it's really long lasting and I can still notice it even after I've been wearing it for hours.
I find cream highlighters can look a bit more natural than powder ones as they give a gorgeous glow with out looking powdery. When I first got this I was concerned that when I applied it it would strip the foundation that I was wearing underneath but I haven't found this to be an issue.
I really like this highlighter as it looks so pretty. It is a good one to have in my makeup bag as it takes up barely any space and is so quick to apply so I find I use this a lot on days when I have little time to apply my makeup.
