Product Rave: Elf Studio Cream Eyeliner
So I've been using this over a week now and thought I'd put it on here. I got the mineral infused primer at the same time and loved it! It makes my face silky soft and foundation blends in effortlessly over it.
Anyway I got the cream eyeliner in the colour midnight, mistakenly thinking it was black. I know they also have one called black but ok, I'm stupid right? Or just extremely unobservant I guess! I have been wearing this for over a week still thinking it is black, until today when I finally got round to swatching and photographing it in total daylight I can see that it's the same colour as my nail varnish; Big Smoke by Butter London, so therefore it must be steel blue.
It is very dark, it kind of appears a soft black I suppose. I've been wearing it mainly with rosy outlook and smut e/s from MAC and it looked soft black with them
Good Points and some minors:
It stays on forever. Really, really hard wearing but removeseasily with make up remover
The cream texture is really nice and smooth to apply
It stays damp for a few minutes so you've got time to blend or smoke it if you want
It stays on the lower lash line well but not the waterline
It's hard to get the right brush to use with it, I've ordered the Elf studio small angled one to try, but other small angled brushes I've used with it haven't worked well, And don't even think about using the Elf professional eye liner brush in my photo- I just did it and it's a big no-no! I've been using cleaned liquid eyeliner brushes instead which are working well with it
Have you picked up this cream liner too?
