e.l.f. Cream Eyeliners in Metallic Olive, Copper, Gunmetal and Plum Purple & Liquid Eyeliner in Plum


Part 2 of my e.l.f. haul - the cream eyeliners and one liquid eyeliner in plum.  As I tend to lean towards shimmers and sparkles, I opted to order the four shimmery cream eyeliners: Copper, Metallic Olive, Plum Purple and Gunmetal.  In the liquid eyeliner, I ordered Plum.

The four cream eyeliners all come in a pretty hefty screw top jar and come with their own miniature angled eyeliner brush.  The jars are 0.17oz, so this is a decent amount of liner for the price - $3 a piece.  The consistency is extremely smooth, creamy, and pigmented.  The shimmer in the liner actually comes through, as does the color.  The cream eyeliners wear extremely well too - I didn't have any cracking, smudging, or flaking.

Now, the liquid eyeliner in Plum is absolutely beautiful.  This is a warm, deep almost coppery purple with shimmer.   As the website says...

"No more tugging or pulling on your eyelids with this easy glide liquid eyeliner. The smudge-proof liner is rich in color, creating a long lasting defined look. The fine tip brush creates easy and precise definition for natural or dramatic effects."

I definitely agree that this liner runs along the lashline easily and the color wears extremely well.  My only complaint is the applicator is a felt tip, where I prefer a brush to apply my liquid liners, but at $1, I will work with it!

There are tons of colors to choose from online, including browns, blacks, navy, and a selection of new glitter liners in iridescent, gold and silver.

Swatches are below - the colors are great and there is a fantastic selection of colors.

Right now, you can get their favorites, including the cream and liquid eyeliners, 50% off, meaning the creams would be $1.50 and the liquid would be $0.50!  Not a bad deal at all!  

So, bottom line...would I buy these again?  ABSOLUTELY!  These liners are great and the price is even better!  Take a look at your local Target (if you have one by you) - I just noticed the new end-cap yesterday.  Included, there are 3-pks of the liquid eyeliners for $3.  I believe in this set you get black, a charcoal shimmer and iridescent white shimmer.

Have you tried either e.l.f's cream or liquid eyeliners?  What do you think?  Which is your favorite?

  4. Copper is gorgeous - it really looks like copper, not brassy like some "copper" liners can be.

    Lyuba-Chan, e.l.f. emailed out a discount a few weeks ago, and they tend to do so regularly. I think you can sign up on their website for newsletters, otherwise, Google for e.l.f. codes and they should come up.
