Today, I'm going to review one of the products that I recently purchased.
Recently, E.L.F has launched a new line of products that cost $2. Before this, the majority of their products were either $1 or $3, with the exception of certain face products. One of the new products in this line is the Waterproof Eyeliner Pen.
waterproof eyeliner pen in the E.L.F essentials line but since that eyeliner pen is still available, I'm not entirely sure.
Right off the bat, this eyeliner intrigued me because it's actually one of those 3 pronged applicators that have been pretty popular in more high end and Korean brands. Some people find that the 3 pronged applicator is easier to apply.
Moving onto the actual review of this eyeliner:
Pigmentation: I got this eyeliner in black and for me, I think this eyeliner is actually very black. I saw some other reviews saying that it's not black enough, but in my opinion, I think this eyeliner is sufficiently pigmented.
On my hand, it looks like that the eyeliner bleeds but that's only because my hand has a lot of crevices in it. Bleeding is not a problem when applied to the eye, as I will later show.
Waterproof + Smudging: Though I have pretty dry skin, my eyelids are very oily. Often with other eyeliners, I always have some kind of smudging and flaking issue. With this eyeliner, I did a smudge and water proof on my hand.
Ease of removal: I tried removing this eyeliner with just my normal face cleanser but this did not entirely removed all of the product from my eyes. I need to use a separate eye makeup remover (I usually just use petroleum jelly) to entirely clean this product off but it's nothing too difficult.
Ease of Application: I find the application to be pretty normal. I think by this time, I am pretty use to applying liquid eyeliner, especially with felt tip applicators. I admit, the 3-pronged applicator is a little bit different and I think it's fantastic for very thin lines. But I tend to like my eyeliner a bit thicker so the 3-pronged applicator makes it a little more difficult to achieve that than felt tip applicators. However, in general, I think application is pretty easy and there isn't a significant difference.
Affordability: This eyeliner is extremely affordable: only $2!
Here is how this eyeliner looks on my eye. I think it's definitely pigmented enough for me and this look lasted for me all day :)
Overall Verdict: I think this eyeliner is really wonderful, especially for the price! It's pigmented, long lasting, very affordable and easy to apply. The only downside for me is that it's not totally waterproof but if I know I'm encountering water, I will just use a different eyeliner for the day. This is a great everyday eyeliner and I think everyone should give it a try!
