Review: ELF liquid eyeliners

/ Friday, October 7, 2011 /
During this past summer I got some liquid eyeliners from ELF. Of course, they were $1!
For those who don't know, ELF stands for EyesLipsFace, a cosmetics company that sells a lot of products that are very DIRT cheap. Their products are pretty high-quality and definitely affordable. You can buy their products at this link; alternatively, they sell at some Target, Fiesta, Kmart, and Dollar General stores across the US. I think there is also a ELF website for the UK (click here for the link).

Anyways, I got some products from them, and tested them out for awhile.

I got three liners: Plum (purple-ish color), Black (black, lolz), Coffee (brown) [from left to right on pic below]

Upon opening the eyeliners, I don't think that they were very fine tips. Observe:

I believe the black and plum tips were fine. However, the coffee color's tip was very smudgy and flat. I didn't really like it since it couldn't apply very precisely.

Another thing I didn't like was that they took FOREVER to dry. Seriously, I would apply one layer on, and then wait ~3 min for it to dry. Of course, perhaps it doesn't seem like a lot of time, but seeing that I'm always in a rush to get to class, that doesn't leave a lot of time...

One thing I did like was their price. $1, that's something that some people leave out on the street. Definitely affordable, even for someone as much in debt as me XD I wish we had more of those deals =D

Another cool thing was its color and lasting ability. It was able to last for up to 12 hours and still stayed vivid towards the end. These are very bright, vivid, dark eyeliners.

Bottom line? I wouldn't repurchase it. For those who like dirt cheap makeup and don't mind waiting 3 min for liner to dry, and who want good staying power, this is a good recommendation.
