E.L.F Studio Cream Eyeliner


Hi guys, sorry i have been m.i.a recently, laptop charger broke.
Anyway i wanted to review this E.L.F product for you as i have read varying views on it, so hope it helps.

I have had this product for ages, it was on my first order to E.L.F way back when i started blogging so around a year ago. I have heard so many good things about the Bobbi Brown Gel liner and the MAC fluidline eyeliner that i really wanted to try out a cream or gel liner which is when i saw this. At £3.50 its really cheap considering the amount of product you get and the amount you actually use in one sitting. 
I really wanted to like this but when i got it i was really disappointed. Normally using a felt tip liner which has such ease and quickness to it i felt this was a lot of hype over an eyeliner that is going to take twice as long to apply. It comes with a brush which is pointless in my eyes also but on the whole i just couldn't get the desired look i got with a felt  tip liner.
Saying this, i recently purchased some brushes and found i had a fine eyeliner brush so i dug this out and tried again.
I haven't looked back since, the pigmentation is amazing it really is a black black, i find it lasts all day without smudging and the consistency is very creamy but very smooth and easy to apply.
  just using the right brush has made this product one of my favorites of all time, i will defiantly be repurchasing it.
The only negative comment on this is i find the pot drys out quite fast but i just sweep a baby wipe over the top of the product and its good to go again.
I love this product so much!
