So I bought this because I left my usually black Kat Von D waterline eyeliner at a friends house. I thought, "Hey why not try something that brightens my waterline?" So I went to Target and saw this one. I brought it home and put it on; well attempted. This would not go on my waterline what so ever. It also irritated my waterline to the point where it was bright red. Not a big fan of Elf.

This pencil eyeliner may be cheap, but it isn't even value for money.
The first time I used it, the colour came out as light and patchy. Maybe it's because I was still new to eyeliners, but it was really difficult to get an even and defined line. I had to go over the line numerous times and it would tug painfully at my eyelids/lash line. :(
After I used the sharpener, the colour definitely became smoother and more pigmented. But this led to another problem-when I blinked, the pigment would transfer all over my eyelids! Within a couple of minutes, the product had given me racoon eyes wtf. (Nope, I do not have oily eyelids.)
Overall, I will not recommend this to anyone, unless you're staying in the US, can get it for cheap and just want to try it out. It's disappointing that I had to pay international shipping for something that I plan to chuck at the bottom of my drawer after trying it for a couple of times.

This is a great eyeliner! I have it in black and it is just fabulous pencil eyeliner. It glides on smoothly and creamily and gives you a perfect, thin straight line. Despite the fact that it does not claim to be waterproof, it really kind of fails in the staying intact part. If you itch your eyelid, or have really oily eyelids (like myself) I would not recommend this. Even though I put on primer and shadow, it still just smudged off really quickly (maybe only a couple of hours intact). But if you have dry eyelids, don't ever scratch your eyelids, and are in a completely cooled place all day, you'll be fine. But you have to remember, this product doesn't claim any waterproof capabilities or any lasting powers so I didn't feel too bad (plus it was only a buck!) so don't even think about putting it on your waterline or tight-line because it'll be gone in like half an hour.If you won't be sweating or being in a warm place though, I would totally recommend this product because it gives such a nice smooth pretty line! I really love this product but it just wasn't for me I guess.

As I've tried more ELF products over time, I've come to the realization that for me, many products within this line are very hit or miss. I bought this eyeliner in Coffee solely for the purpose of practicing how to line my eyes, a skill which I admit I am complete rubbish at. The price was more than right for my purposes (you even get a sharpener thrown in), and that is one of the reasons I do have a soft spot for the brand, as it's such a good one to experiment with items that you get curious about.
After a bit of trial and error, I definitely think there are better eye pencils to be had out there: It is not a very creamy pencil, hence it does not glide on easily, and smudges more than anything. I don't find the pigmentation that intense either. Again, this could be purely down to my lack of skill, and if you know what you're doing, you'll probably get good results. All is not lost however: It actually makes an incredibly decent eyebrow pencil, and I've even used it as an overall wash on my eyelid (smudged on with a fingertip), and it has performed quite well in keeping any powder shadows I put over the top of it in place.

I decided to try other shades of this eyeliner after being impressed with a miniature version of the black which came with the E.L.F. Beauty Book Smoky Eye Edition. I purchased the brown and purple shades and as they only cost 1.50GBP each, I also got a full-sized version of the black too.
I must confess I was probably expecting too much from these, and as a result have been sadly let down. The black is still the best out of the three, but even that is quite chalky which is hugely disappointing when you consider I'd loved the miniature version so much. As for the other two colours - the brown is wishy-washy at best, whilst the purple has the same chalky consistency as the black. And neither are easy to apply.
I've now used them all a handful of times, but each time have been put off by their consistency, the fact that they drag across your eyelid and their staying power (the purple being the worst culprit). I've taken to using the brown shade as a brow pencil, which seems to work better than it did as an eyeliner, so at least it's not been a complete waste of money. As for the other two, I suspect they'll end up in the bin quite soon.

Elf has great products, but this is definitely not one!! I was really disappointed, it doesn't appear visible at all! Definitely a waste of a dollar.

It's a dollar!!!! What is everybody expecting. I'd say that for what I paid it worked just fine.

I have to agree with the other ladies, in that the shade Coffee works nicely as a brow pencil. But, I do also like this as an eyeliner as well. Coffee is a cool toned brown and doesn't have shimmer in it, unlike some of the other pencils in the range. I use Coffee in my brows when I run out of my normal pencil (NYX Slim Eye Pencil in Dark Brown) and have no complaints with it whatsoever. It stays put all day (I frequent the gym so this is awesome) and blends in very nicely with my eyebrows. When I use this as an eyeliner, I do have to make it a bit softer. To make it softer, all I do is pop the tip of the pencil into a lighter flame for a second, maybe once or twice, and then it's a dream to apply. I know the lighter trick is old, but it works should you be in a bit of squeeze or want to make your eyeliners softer. I haven't tried it on my waterline, but on the lid it doesn't budge or transfer. My only complaint is the cap, it can be a bit stubborn to get it to stay on since it's made of harder plastic. But, the sharpener it comes with is really good! So even if you hate the pencil or don't want it, you'll have a good sharpener for a $1.00. It's worth trying it for the sharpener alone!

I actually really like this liner! I got the purple one, and it isn't super pigmented. It makes my greenish gold eyes pop without looking like I tried too hard. No raccoon eyes and it sharpens like a dream. For the low price, I will repurchase over and over again!
