ELF Cream Liner (Black): Review
I was shopping in Makati with some of my friends when I came across ELF's cream liner. During that time, I have heard nice reviews about ELF eyeshadows, brushes and lip glosses. I was quite familiar with the brand because of the number of tutorials online that use ELF products. However, I have not seen anyone use their cream liner before. I was curious so I asked the saleslady to swatch the liner onto my skin. She did and I continued to roam around the mall. At the end of the day, I decided to buy the product. And that, my dear readers, is the jist of how I fell in love with this.
ELF cream liners claim to be long wearing and smudge proof. True, it is long wearing. It will last you a whole day with no need for reapplication. It doesn't easily smudge but if you rub it a couple of times, the product would eventually give in. It's not totally smudge proof but I am satisfied with it because I see no reason for me to rub my eyes to the point of ruining my make-up.
You only need to use a small amount of product per application so I'm pretty sure a pot will last you long even if you are planning to use it every single day.
It also comes with a small angled brush, which makes application easy for me. The only downside is that the line it creates is not that precise. But then again, the brush was free so I didn't actually expect much of it.
The product is a bit hard to wash off but nothing that a make-up remover/ baby oil can't handle. The best thing about this is that it's cheap! I think I just bought it in Watsons for like PHP200+. I'm sure other online shops offer this for less so maybe you can do a research on that.
The only thing I don't like is that some of the product smears onto my crease area during warm weather. This could be because I tend to get oil build up during this time.
Below is a picture of my right eye with ELF cream liner. I used the brush that comes with the pot of liner.
Over all, this product is WORTH IT.
- available in the Philippines
- long wearing
- does not easily smudge
- easy application
- small pot will definitely last long
- brush is not that precise
- smears during warm weather
(I bought this product with my own money and I am not getting paid for this review. Note that these are just my opinions and I do not guarantee that what I say would hold true in everyone's case.)
