Review: ELF Cream Eyeliner

This is officially my very first cream/gel *I don't really know the different >_< * eyeliner! I like to wear liquid eyeliner rather than gel/pencil, because I think the color is more bright and easy to use *for me*. Earlier this month, I saw a local online shop had a great deal for thiseyeliner. The price for this eyeliner is $3 (ELF Official Website) but when it comes to Indonesia, the price usually at range IDR 55K-90K and I got mine for IDR 35K! cheap price, right?
Let me move into the review~

About this product:
The cream formula 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 or rain! Achieve thin or bold lines with ease. Slanted Eyeliner Brush included.

Isododecane, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Polybutene, Polyethylene, Barium Sulfate, Cyclomethicone, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Polyglyceryl-4 Isostearate, Propylene Carbonate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI77891), Red No.40 Lake (CI 16035), Mica (CI 77019), Blue No.1 Lake (CI 42090), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510), Ultramarine Violet (CI77077).

Available Shades:
Copper, Gunmetal, Metallic Olive, Teal Tease, Plum Purple, Coffee, Black, Midnight, Ivory, Golden, Punk Purple.

My Shade: Metallic Olive

Packaging: This eyeliner comes with a small glass pot (which I think really cute). It also comes with a little brush. The packaging isn't air tight! *I hate this the most because it will makes the eyeliner dries faster*. The brush is quite soft but it doesn't comes with any cover or brush guard.


Swatch on my eye:

Texture: The texture is quite creamy/soft at first. But recently I found it's a little drier (maybe because the packaging). The color is like dark green/brown~

The good things:
Quite Waterproof and smudgeproof~ unless you rub it very hard.
The staying power is awesome!
There are various color selection
Cute packaging and comes with a brush
Cheap price!

The bad things:
The packaging isn't air tight which make the eyeliner dries faster on its packaging *sigh*
I wish the brush comes with a cover or anything to make it more hygienic
Hard to get in my country

I have on-off relationship with ELF products. I always love their blush and bronzer but not really like their eye's product. This eyeliner does give me a good impression for it's texture and staying power. But, I am really dissappointed with the consistency. Right now I have different gel eyeliner in my stack and I'm no longer use ELF cream eyeliner because it is already quite dry *well, I can still use it but I must put a lot of effort if I want to get perfect result*. It's not even a month since I purchased it! *I bought it around early August*

OFF TOPIC: I've already achieve 300++ followers! yay~ Thank you for all my followers *virtual hug*. I will celebrate it by having a giveaway *soon*. Sorry for the delay because, I ran out money :(. I spent so many on the last holiday :p and I still have planning to watch Big bang's concert on October. So, right now I will work hard and save more money :D

  9. congrats on your 300 followers! thanks for the review, i just tried my first gel liner as well (wet n wild) and i didn't like it :( dries up fast and transfers even if i wear primer underneath! does the elf liner smear/transfer after a few hours? thanks! :)

    1. Hi chin chin, no it doesn't smear or transfer.
      It has amazing staying power even though my eyelid can be considered oily~
