I am so in love with this eyeliner. I need to get a new one but I used to buy it at target, and the one by me doesn't carry this color anymore, so now I have to order it. BUT it is amazing. the color doesn't look overly green on, I wear have worn this with many makeup/clothing/haircolors. the color does however make my eyecolor look super bright. my eyes are a green/gray/blue and it always makes my eyecolor POP. Honestly it did dry out about a little over halfway thru the pot...but for $3 I really don't care lol.
Love the colour (which I see as more of an antique gold than olive), hate the formula. It's fine to apply, but dries out quite quickly, and transfers and smudges. The plastic pot probably doesn't help things along, I suspect it doesn't seal well enough.
I was skeptical at first, but this stuff is GREAT! I mean yeah, it could stand to be a tad creamier. With the metallic flecks though, I doubt that is possible. So it's on the drier side but the color is fantastic. DIRT cheap, at $3.00 (don't buy this stuff on ebay! There's an ad to the right of this selling it on ebay for $6! It's $3 at Target or on their website which is eyeslipsface dot com). It's unique in color and has great staying power. Give this a try, it's one of the few drugstore items that actually performs as well as the higher end brands!
Right away, upon initial use, I can tell that these cream liners are on the dry side and I probably won't be able to use these up because they're not going to be as creamy and be difficult to use. BUT while they are feasible, I am very content! I've used Metallic Olive, Teal Tease and Black. I am most impressed with Metallic Olive. It's different. Not as olive-y as I had hoped, but there's definitely more to it than just your average brown cream liner. I like that it's an honest metallic too. Looks good on my lower lash line with my brown/hazel eyes. Stays put all day without fading. I really like the brush that comes with these cream liners. It's extremely easy to use and I'd think beginners would really benefit from trying these out. For about $3(CAD), it's worth it!
I love the E.L.F. matte cream e/l shades, but the shimmer ones seem to flake easily. Also, I don't see this as an olive colour. It's more of a dark forest green with subtle antique gold flecks. The price is great though and it applies very smoothly. I've had mine for a year and it has not dried out. I will not repurchase this shade, nor any of the other shimmer ones. I have a separate review for the black shade (which is my HG black e/l).
I bought 3 ELF cream liners, and this is the one I use the most. I love that it's a lighter alternative to black or brown, and it's dark and not that metallic. I love olive as a liner color, and this one is perfect! The price point is not too shabby either.
But I know I'll have to buy this product again because, unfortunately, the packaging is not airtight and this WILL dry out. I've only had mine for a couple of months and already I can see a BIG difference in texture - it's not as soft as it was when I first received it. It will probably dry out within the year and I'll have to buy another one. (I've already had 1 dry out on me last year... in a different color)
Oh ELF, why can't you make a container that's more airtight?
Just got this. LOVE! It's another great alternative to basic black. It reminds me of UD's Smog, with longer wear and better pigmentation. Would definitely buy again.
This product is really amazing! I really love the metallic olive color! Its like a shimmery brownish-green color. It goes on smoothly and has a pretty long wear. You will need to clean the brush after every use though, or little pieces of the eyeliner still on the brush fall on your face and make a mess! The only problem that I've had with the E.L.F. cream eyeliners is finding one with a decent brush. Each cream eyeliner comes with its own little brush. I have four of them. Only one is usable though! One is so stuff and hurts to use and the other two are cut into crazy shapes and are also unusable!
I love this. I like these liners in general, but I love this colour! It wears well in that it smudges less than any long wearing pencil I've tried, but it still smudges a bit by the end of the day. It doesn't transfer on me when I wear it on my top lash line and I have hooded eyes. It's great! I say try it!
Have been wanting to try these liners. My last order placed to E.L.F took sooo long to ship I was happy to find this in Target! Well My last liner was a Stila smudge pot & it has started to dry out. Anyway, I'm super impressed with this Metallic Olive. Its a nice color not to bold like when I use a black liner. This is perfect for everyday wear. Nice creamy texture that lasts all day. Doesn't smudge or run on me. Love it! Excited to try other colors. continued >>
