Review of E.L.F. Waterproof Eyeliner Pen by Laudes
I couldn't resist trying E.L.F. stuff - at $1/item (most items), where's the risk? Well, some of it is bad, some is good, but one of my favorites turned out to be their "Ash" (gray) liquid eyeliner.
I tried all of the colors & was surprised to find that they differ in quality! The purple is horrendous: it has the color of a fresh bruise, much too red. (Though if you happen to like that color, I can mention that it's also a little shiny when it dries.) The purple & brown don't seem to go on as well as the others & both tend to flake.
But the gray "Ash" eyeliner is really quite good! It's a nice shade of deep gray, goes on well, wears well... for a buck! I keep one in my purse for "eyeliner emergencies." (lol) I bought a few, and they'll come in handy; if I lose one or have to replace it, for $1 it won't be a problem!
Of the others, the black & midnight blue seemed to be just as good as the gray - it's just that I'm too pale to wear most black liners, & E.L.F.'s blue is too dark for me as well. I can also recommend those two colors, though of course they're hardly going to have you rushing to replace your favorite MAC (etc.) eyeliner with E.L.F.'s!
