Elf Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Twinkle Teal Review

I purchased this Elf Eyeliner for only $1 at Target the same day I bought both the Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition 5pc Couture Set and the Sonia Kashuk Complexion Perfection Brush.

I wanted a teal eyeliner and didn’t really want to spend a lot of money.  I’ve never used Elf’s eyeliner pencils before but I figured for only $1, I didn’t have much to lose.  I really like the Elf Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Pen, so I was hoping I’d have the same sentiments about this pencil.

The top line was my initial swatch.  The bottom line is where I went back and forth two times to build the intensity.  It’s a pretty color.

This eyeliner pencil feels somewhat smooth when applying it however it’s not very pigmented.  You’d have to do more than just one layer to get the color to show nicely.  I did two layers here.

It was more difficult applying to my lower lash line for some reason. I had to go over it a few times.  It’s almost as if the color wasn’t sticking. 🙁

So I was curious about the staying power of this pencil.  I quickly found it that it sucks.  I was able to wipe off the liner with my finger with one swipe. 🙁

You can barely see the remnants at the outer line.  This makes me very weary about wearing it out in public.

Well, at least the sharpener works.

I’ve always considered Elf Cosmetics as either hit or miss.  There are products that I love from them and then products such as this eyeliner that I regret purchasing.  I’m so glad it was only $1.  Maybe if I use a primer 1st, it’ll hold up better.  What can I say?  You get what you pay for. *sigh*
