While feeding my addiction of ELF cosmetics, I took advantage of a 50% of sale and purchased the ELF Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pens. These pens come in seven shades, two of which are relatively new to the line; Ash, Black, Coffee, Midnight, Plum, Purple, Teal. These pens retail at $1.00 each, but if you're lucky and snag them on sale you can get them for only $.50, like I did!
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.
Removal is easy, use a water based makeup remover.
Best stored with tip down for ultimate color saturation.Likes:
- affordable at only $1.00ea
- decent range of shades, 7 shades total
- easy to use as the product is not all watery which makes it easier to create precise lines
- slender packaging, tight sealing cap
- felt tip applicator
- the two newest shades are very pigmented and brighter than I expected them to be
- majority of the shades do not translate the color they swatch, when worn they all look dark - almost black
- the tip is extremely stiff and has no give at all, this actually hurt the skin on my lash line
- not completely "waterproof", the liners did start to transfer on my lid after wearing it for more than 6hrs
|Ash, Black, Coffee, Midnight, Plum, Purple, Teal|
Ash comes off as a deep grey, not completely black but still very rich
Black didn't come out as pitch as I was hoping (felt sort of dry as well), but I think this might just be a dud pen because I have a different liquid liner ELF pen that's super pitch black
Coffee dries to a dark brown but from a distance it can come off as black
Midnight is not what I expected at all, swatches online show it to be a navy blue, but in person this dries to a deep dark navy - almost black to be honest
Plum didn't turn out as what is shown online, it's a very deep plum almost showing as black in person
Purple is a very pigmented and bright purple, this far exceeded my expectations based on the online swatches and the first five shades I tried prior to this one
Teal is a very pigmented dark teal with a true teal haze, this shade is probably the most surprising in regards to color payoff
