Spotlight | elf Liquid Eyeliner.

I was organizing my makeup stash the other day, and only then did I realize that I have a few items left unopened from the elf package. And although I have developed an affinity for gel eyeliners and have been using them exclusively for quite some time now, I put them aside for the time being and gave the elf Liquid Eyeliner a try.
elf Liquid Eyeliner.
The elf Liquid Eyeliner comes in a sleek, tightly-capped 5mL bottle.
So sleek, it fits most purses and makeup pouches.
Its brush is just as sleek. It has a fine - very fine, actually - tip designed to create thin, precise lines. It can be a bit tricky to use at first, especially if you're not used to working with liquid eyeliners. But once you get the hang of it, you'll love how the brush glides easily on your lashline.
So thin, I can't even get a proper photo of it. LOL.
See? :)
There are seven colors available for the elf Liquid Eyeliner; this one is 4203 Black (obviously). The formulation is a bit runny and it takes a minute or two for it to dry. But once it does (dry), it has a nice matte finish. Color is buildable, and highly-pigmented, too.
One swipe on the left, two swipes on the right.
Although the product claims to be 'smudge-proof', it's not as smudge-proof as I hoped it would be. The eyeliner wears off easily, so using this during the hot summer months would not be advisable. I actually wear this with a primer to prevent it from creasing, and to extend its wearability by a few more hours. Six hours at least, in my case.
Very, very thin lines on my lids.
Considering the price, however, you really can't complain. This product sells for only Php 129, and is widely available at most department stores. 

What I love:
- Sleek packaging.
- Highly-pigmented, buildable color.
- Several colors to choose from.
- Unscented.
- Non-irritating.
- Affordable price.
- Cruelty-free!

What you might not like:
- A bit runny.
- Takes awhile to dry.
- Fades throughout the day without a primer.

That's really cheap, I have to say. I'm not a fan of eyeliner, though. Maybe it's because I'm a total klutz when applying makeup! That's great to give as a gift this season.

It looks great on you! I have never tried the liquid or gel eyeliners; I've always just stuck with the pencil. Like Pepper said, I am also a klutz with makeup, especially in the eye department! lol

The eyeliner really looks good on you.
I don't use eyeliner coz I'm not apt with makeup.
