e.l.f. Waterproof Eyeliner Pens

These come in 5 different colours and I have purchased four.

What e.l.f. promise:
Get no smudge, no budge eyeliner that lasts for hours for a fabulous and fresh look of precision. The smooth pen applicator easily glides on color for very fine to bold lines for effortless beauty.

(L-R: Midnight, Coffee, Black, Plum)

These are packaged like felt tip markers- slim black pens with removable corks and a coloured sticker at the bottom to let you know what colour pen you have. They have quite a fine nib which allows precision too and you can control the line easily.

The first time I tried this, I was in love, I got one black pen to try first of all and I was so impressed with the fine black line that lasted for ages but didn't budge. On the strength of this great first impression, I ordered four more but I regretted that choice ever before they arrived because the black pen that I stored pointing downwards had almost completely dried out after just one use, despite being stored in the recommended way and properly corked etc. I was disgusted but I thought it might have just been one of a bad batch, but when I got the other pens, same thing happened time and time again. Even though they are only $1/£1.50/€1.70, I wouldn't have bought them if I thought I was only going to get one use out of them. 

Seemed so promising at the start but I was left disappointed. Will definitely not repurchase, disappointed.

Star Rating:
One single star for the one single use you get out of every pen.
