ELF studio cream eyeliner

Good afternoon bloggers! I'm getting back into blogging so here are my thoughts on a product that i have been using on a daily basis for the past two weeks. Approximately three weeks ago i placed my first ever ELF order which consisted of a few studio and regular items as i heard they had a major re-stock and added a few new items to their studio range which included this cream eyeliner. i couldn't wait to get my hands on this as i had been dying to try a cream eyeliner since i have always used liquid liner. I was contemplating buying the Bobbi brown gel eyeliner/MAC fluidline until i found out ELF had just introduced this to their line at a purse friendly price of a mere £3.50! i thought it was a good idea to try the ELF version because if i didn't like the cream eyeliner then i wouldn't be wasting too much money.

I found that the service was really good especially as i got free delivery on my order - i recieved my box of goodies after two working days! i really wasn't expecting it to come so quickly. if you want to keep up to date with ELFs offers and promotions then just join their facebook page. whenever they reach a certain number of fans they give free postage (which happens quite often) and packaging or free gifts.

What ELF say: 'Creates smooth lines that are defined and precise. Smudge-proof, budge-proof and water-resistant coverage for all day wear to combat against, sweat, tears and rain!'

My initial thoughts: When i opened the box, i was genuinly surprised at how well the packaging of the eyeliner looked. i love how its square, rather than round like a lot of the eyeliners on the market. the first time i tried the eyeliner it felt so soft and creamy, i couldn't believe how easy it was to apply without making any mistakes at all. i love how i can now create an identical wing shape on each eye without having to attempt it 2+ times with liquid liner. the only problem that has occurred when i use this product is that it transfers onto my eyelids as i have quite hooded eyes - i can't not blink to keep my eyes open for more than a minute to wait for it to dry! i have carried on using this eyeliner everyday eventhough it does smudge, mainly because it doesn't irritate my eyes and i have extremely watery eyes so the eyeliner flake or fade away halfway through the day like my liquid eyeliner does.

Lasts throughout the day
Quick to apply
Effortless application
Cheap and cheerful
Natural looking in comparison to liquid liner
Easy to remove

Transfers onto my under eye
Smells cheap - like kids freebie make up from magazines
Colour isn't very intense
Takes a while to dry
Have you tried this eyeliner before? What do you think of it?

  1. thank you for the review :)
    you get what you pay for
    but i guess there could be other uses for this :)

  2. thanks for the review! i wanted to buy this but the shipping outside of USA cost too much so i never ended up getting anything from the site! : (

  3. I still love this creme eyeliner though! It's great for smokey eyes and you can set it so it won't smudge :D
