ELF Waterproof Eyeliner in Midnight Review

April 12, 2012

I love eyeliner so much, my whole make up can't be completed without it. I can not wear mascara or falsies but I have to put eyeliner everytime I use make up, it defines my eyes. I love Dolly Wink and K-Palette as eyeliner pen as it's efficient and really works nice. But somehow it's too expensive so I always find other alternatives to become its dupe. I got ELF Waterproof Eyeliner Pen to try, and it's on same type with Dolly Wink and K-Palette, which is in pen type. I heard people love ELF cosmetics so much, but I never try any of their products. So I will see how it works according to my standard :D

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.

Packaging :

It comes in sleek black packaging. Unfortunately the cap is really tight and difficult to take off, I have to use quite strong power to take it off, which is a minus point because of its inefficient packaging. The cover is nothing to impress, just a simple sleek black

Application :

I find that the tip is really hard and sharp, not gentle at all, which makes my eyelids feel dragged when I use this eyeliner. It's not easy to use. It feels like I'm drawing my eyes with marker. Also it can't create a precise thin line. I need to draw it 2-3 times before I can get the color that I want, this eyeliner is not as bold as I expected to be

Result :

The color doesn't show up that nicely, I have to draw it 2-3 times, but it's still worse than my other pen eyeliner. When I rub it with my finger [Top S], it smudges and leaves black stain on my skin. Really unappealing. When I pour water and rub lightly [Bottom S], it almost disappears completely, leaving with slight stain as well

It doesn't last long either, after 2 hour the eyeliner fades away and I have to re-apply it many times!

Where I Got This and Price :

I got this from Zatura Shop . The real price in USA is 1-2USD, really cheap. But it becomes more expensive [about twice than original price?] when it's sold in Indonesia, because there's no ELF Counter in here so only can buy it through online shops that import the product




Final Opinion =

Pros :

  • Cheap

Cons :

  • Boring packaging

  • The cap is really difficult to take off

  • Smudge easily

  • Not waterproof

  • The color doesn't show up that nice

  • Not long lasting

  • The tip is hard

  • Can't create a thin line

Seriously, I cant find anything great from this product besides its cheap price. But I dont even wanna waste my money on this product because it doesn't even worth it, at least for me. I don't know why people love this eyeliner, I will just stick with my Dolly Wink and K-Palette Eyeliner. Japanese make up produces really great eyeliners as far as I know

Hope this help you to avoid purchasing this product :/
