Elf Cream Liners- Swatches & Review

Hey dolls.  I picked up these cream liners from Elf because I had heard so many good things about them.  I am a cream liner virgin believe it or not.  I have been using liquid liners for just about forever, and never thought that I would ever switch it up.
The cardboard packaging is a little bulky for such a small square product.  I think that is one of Elf's big downfalls-the outside packaging can be so deceiving sometimes.  

Anyways, this is what you get once you open up the package.  One mini eye liner and the cream liner.  I bought black and coffee for myself because these are the two colors that I use the most.

I thought that these might be extremely messy and a pain to apply because they were creams, but I was kind of wrong.  I am happy to report that these are a cinch to apply and swatch.  I love how pigmented they are as well.  Very intense color payoff.  
Swatches: Black & Coffee
These cream liners apply wet but dry to a nice consistency.  They certainly don't budge or flake very easy.  I took my pointer finger and rubbed vigorously against the swatches I just laid down.  Here is what happened:
The black wore off a little bit, but the brown shade stayed put.  I am seriously rethinking my liquid liners now.  eek.  lol. The only thing that I am not a fan of is the brush liner that was included in the box.  I am sure that I have a brush laying around somewhere that I can use though.   

Will I repurchase? Yes.  I would also love to try different colors from this line as well.  This is definitely a great alternative to liquid liners.  I think they might have made a convert out of me. :)

  1. I LOVE these! I use the black one so much! It's so easy to apply because it's so nice and creamy. Try the elf studio small angled brush, it's super with these liners!
