Beauty Review: e.l.f. Essential Liquid Eyeliner

Sparkle in a bottle
This review is inspired by my recent purchase and use of e.l.f.'s Essential Liquid Eyeliner in Copper. However, I should point out that I have been using this same eyeliner in black for quite some time. Pretty much anytime I do a winged liner look, I use this eyeliner. It goes on nice and smooth, and lasts all day without fading or smudging. At only $1, it is a crazy awesome price for a good quality product.

Well, as I mentioned a few days ago, I bought this liner in Copper. Yesterday I went ahead and tried it out for the first time. I was going to put it all over my lid for a more dramatic look, but since all I was doing was work, I decided to be more subtle. I applied it right over the smudgy slate eyeshadow I'd already put along my lash line. It made for a nice flash of sparkle every time I blinked.

Nice bit of copper flash along my lash line.
Overall, I am very happy with this liner. The staying power it had in black holds true in copper. I was lazy last night and didn't remove my eye make-up. Now, around 36 hours from when I applied it, it is still holding steady on my lash line. The only complaint I have is that it took much longer to dry than the black version. In black, it dries quite quickly. In the copper, however, it was probably almost a minute before I was able to open my eyes fully without worrying that i was going to end up with glitter under my brows.

I could not manage to take a picture that captured the liner very well (or that flattered me), so this is what you get. In person, though, it was more apparent and sparkled more. I have to say, I want to go and buy this eyeliner in every single color now.

    1. Isn't it? I was thinking it must have been one of their $3 products (which is still obscenely cheap), but then I checked and it's on of the $1 products. Craziness.

  2. I've never tired anything by elf, but I have heard great things. Loved your review, very honest, might have to go see for myself now :) x
