Product Review: E.L.F. Eyeliner Pen in Coffee 7301

Saturday, November 12, 2011

    I'm was sooo excited when I finished my E.L.F. Liquid Eyeliner because I can purchase a new one. But unfortunately, it was OOS when I went to E.L.F. counter so I decided to try their eyeliner pen. I'm a bit curious on how it will fare with my weird eyelids. So when I got home, I opened it quickly to test it on my eyelids. I thought I will say that I found a backup for my eyeliner but hell no! I got very, very, very disappointed.

     Guess what happened?The eyeliner dried out. The moment I opened the cap and was about to draw a line on my eyelid, I felt the tip was hard. I tried swatching it on my forearm and it was really dry. So I tried shaking it like a ball pen that ran out of ink. Nothing happened. I decided to place it upside down for 10 minutes, nothing also happened. So i decided to open it and add a few drops of eyemo and see if the ink was completely dry. With a bit of luck, it's not completely dry. I was able to use it and again unfortunately, twice.

What I like:
  • The price is affordable, I think it's cheap for a liquid eyeliner pen.
  • The staying power is okay. It lasts about 4-5 hours on me.
  • Can be easily remove by makeup remover. I use my facial wipes instead.
What I don't like:
  • The moment I opened the eyeliner, the tip was completely dry.
  • I had a hard time applying because the tip is too thin.
  • I tried to save it from completely drying by adding a few drops of eyemo but doesn't worked.
  • The color payoff is so so. Not that pigmented for my taste.
  • Used it only twice, it dried out completely.
Will I repurchase? Maybe yes? I'll give this another try if the SA will open it and try if it is dry or not. The SA also told me that I can replace it if it's dry provided with the receipt. Stupid me, I lost the receipt that's why I was't able to replace it.

Recommendation:
     I give this a 2.5/5 rating. I think I need to make another review after purchasing a new one that is not dry. If your planning to buy this eyeliner, it is better to test it first so that you can replace it on the spot if you get a dry one. As for the price, it's a steal! I think no need to complain more.

      Do you use eyeliner pen?What brand can you recommend?Thanks for sharing!


Good Times!~

  1. I only use eyeliner pencils and liquid eyeliners. I'm a little scared of eyeliner pens for that particular reason, as it's really more prone to drying out. But I love that you get the control of an eyeliner pencil but pigmentation of a liquid liner, so I ordered a NYX felt tip liner (ETA mid to late this month). I'll update you if it's good.. ;)

  3. I think it depends sis sa brand. Kasi good eyeliner pencils are somewhat creamy and glide on the skin smoothly. Fashion21 have good eyeliner pencils. I also have another black eyeliner pencil that I swear by, but I don't know the brand 'cause it got rubbed off na.. >.< For special occasions, I use Urban Decay's 247 glide-on pencils.
