I love this shade - it's just what I want when black would be too harsh. The pigmentation is decent and it stays put for absolutely ages. However, what I didn't like about it was the fall out. Think mine is drying out, as it was quite crumbly when applying. I was still able to get a great line, but I didn't like having to constantly brush away the specks below my eyes. That's the main downside to these eyeliners - seem to be very prone to drying out in record time. E.L.F definitely need to work on improving the packaging. I also have the one in Metallic Olive, which is also a great alternative to black. Despite the poor packaging, I'd repurchase, simply because it's such a gorgeous shade.
The formula was so dry that i couldn't get a decent enough line. When i tried, the color distributed slotchy and uneven. I would not buy this color again. I may try the other colors b/c those seem to be of better quality according to the reviews.
I really wanted to like this liner, because a lot of people seem to love it, but I hate it. I've given several colors a chance and I hate all but one of them. They are dry to begin with, but slightly useable. Within a very short time though, they are so dry you can't even work with them, and you end up with a thick flakey mess on your eyelids. The only color I've liked is the teal one, that one seems to be much less dry. I really wish I liked this, because it comes in a ton of colors, but it's awful. :( There are better liners out there even at this price point.
This is nota good eyeliner. It is so sheer! I have to layer it, & layer it to finally get the color I want. It does make a decent eye shadow base though! Not sure if I would buy again... continued >>
I love the E.L.F. cream eyeliners, but this color wasn't so great. It has a gooey texture and goes on a weird color. It just looks like your makeup smudged all over your eyes. It smears easily and just isn't a very great product. I'd advise you to try this product in black or metallic olive instead!
I am a huge elf fan, especially the Studio line, but I am not a fan of the cream eyeliners. I wanted to get this color because I wanted something a little less intense for day wear, instead of the usual black. however, while this color may be nice, the texture is awful. Like others have stated, it is like a peanut butter texture. When you drag it along your lashline with a brush, it comes out where some parts is smooth, some is clumpy. It is extremely hard to have an even line, even with a good eyeliner brush. Because of this, I hardly use it. The staying power is good and the color is nice, but the texture is very difficult to work with. I have had this for more than a year and I barely dented it because of the texture.
This is a good eyeliner except that it looks lighter on than in the pot. I won't buy it again because I don't care for medium gray BUT I ordered the black one and plan to put a light eyeshadow or neutral powder over the top to make it a dark gray. I actually like the little brush it comes with I bought the other slanted brush but prefer the one it came with.
I love this product. I bought one yesterday, and I like the color because it's soft but still effective. I new to all eyeliners, but I like this one the best because it doesn't smudge, and won't make me look raccoony. The packaging looks nice, but it's hard to screw back on sometimes, but I really don't care about packaging if the product inside is divine. For $3, I love it!
I have to admit, I was a little skeptical about E.L.F. products. We all have a fantasy that everything high quality enough to be sold at Sephora would be $1, but the truth is, the cheap stuff tends to be lacking in quality. But sometimes you find that special makeup that gives you the best of both worlds.
I've been looking and looking and looking for a cream liner that goes on smooth, stays on long, won't smudge, and is waterproof. Finally, praise the heavens, I found this stuff. Not only does it glide onto my lids like silk, but it almost instantly sets and will not budge! I can wear this stuff all day and not have to look in the mirror and see those annoying lines on my upper lid where the liner has rubbed off.
Best part about this liner? It's $3!!!
I was wary of buying this since I'd read very mixed reviews, but I'm glad that I did. I bought Gunmetal because I feel like black is too harsh for my very fair complexion (though now I think I might get one anyway since I loved this). I've only used about three times, but so far, I really like it and works well.
-Lasts all day with only slight fading
-Doesn't flake or smudge around my eyelid (I do use E.L.F. eyelid primer)
-Color is consistent
-Brush is decent
-Easy to get clumps on my eyelid when applying
-Color isn't opaque as I'd like
One thing about the brush which I was concerned about is how many people said it was really difficult to apply with. When I first tried it, it was difficult. I couldn't get the product to be smooth and the line was too thick, but I figured out that if I drag it straight across the the product and don't get it on the sides of the bristles, I can get a clean, thin line. But I still might consider picking up one with a longer handle for ease.
Since this is the first and only cream eyeliner I've used so far, I won't say it's the best. It's good and the price is great, but it also has pitfalls for those who might not have the patience to try again if it doesn't work on the first try.
