Review: ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

Price: $1.00
Where to Buy?: Select Target or ELF website

What ELF says:
Get no smudge with no-budge eyeliner, which creates a fabulous and fresh look of precision that lasts for hours. The smooth pen applicator easily glides on color for very fine to bold lines for effortless beauty.

My Review:
Every time ELF have a coupon code sale online this is one of items I overlook because I have a impression that this wasn't a good eyeliner due to the price. My Target never have any ELF stuffs but I went to the Target close to my BF's place and found a set of 3 liners for $3 which is $1 each and thought why not since its there and I don't have to pay for shipping.

The first time I tried it out I didn't like it at all because there's barely any pigmentation so I threw it in my purse and forgot about for weeks then one day in the car I lost my beloved L'oreal Lineur Intense and I search in my purse and found the ELF liner instead and thought I give it another try. The second time the pigmentation was perfect, I should known that felt-tip liners takes a few application to get the amount out right when you first purchase it. Right after work the liner was still the same as if I just applied it that morning and no transfer on the top lid, I was really impressed!

The only minor problem was the smudging in my inner-corner because I yawn a lot. Other then that this is a great liner for the price keep in mind that I did apply a primer before using the liner so I'm not sure how it would stay without it.

Would this replace my L'oreal Lineur Intense? I would still say no because its still not pigmented enough and I feel that the application isn't smooth.

This is still a great liner for beginners, someone whose new to liquid liners or touch ups.

Smudge Test

Still the same!

With Water:

As you can see the brown liner completely disappeared whereas the black is lighten

Once again for the price its definitely a good purchase and great for touch-ups.

Rating: 5/5
Would I buy this again?: yes

ACK! cheap things are great! but these ELF liners dries up really fast! or maybe i bought defective ones. Anyway, i too like l'oreal lineur intense.

@Chagirl: really? I just bought mines not too long ago so I'm not sure if mines would also dry up over time, that sucks :[
