Product Review and Giveaway

Ever since I began blogging, I have heard nothing but amazing things about the cosmetic line, e.l.f., especially from one of my favorite bloggers The Bargain Blonde. e.l.f. Cosmetics is an extremely affordable product line that can be found at stores like Target, K Mart, and Walmart, and also has an online store that features the entire cosmetic collection. And when I say e.l.f. is extremely affordable, I mean it! Almost all of e.l.f. Cosmetics are under $10, and a majority of their products range from $1-$3! If you've never tried e.l.f. products before, you're probably skeptical like I was. How can a product so cheap be any good? Oh, let me tell you...they're amazing!

Recently, while going on an unnecessary shopping spree at Target, I picked up e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner in black for $3. I had never tried a cream eyeliner before, but at $3, I couldn't pass it up! I've tried Smashbox's cream eyeliner at Sephora before, but I couldn't begin to justify spending $22 on eyeliner! Anywhooo, I took this bad boy home, and immediately fell in love.



This cream eyeliner claims to be long lasting, and let me tell you, it really is. The first day I wore it, it went through the test of all tests. I'm talking a 100+ degree weather, no air conditioning for 8 hours while taking care of toddlers, humidity and sweat galore kind of test. And the results? My eyeliner looked exactly the same as when I put it on 16 hours earlier! No smudges, fading, or running!

This cream eyeliner is extremely pigmented, which I love, and super easy to apply. Using the precision eyeliner brush that comes with it, you can easily create a thin or bold line! And because I love this cream eyeliner so much, I am giving away an e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black to one lucky reader! But that's not all! Because I love Target so much, the winner will also receive a $15 Target gift card that can be used to stock up on some amazing e.l.f products! Use Rafflecopter below to enter. This giveaway ends Monday, July 16th at midnight EST, so get your entries in! Good luck!

I actually don't use eye liner that often. I use the pencils because I am cheap, but I'd love to try this elf cream.

I usually buy Maybelline Gel Eyeliner. I love it. But I'm definitely willing to try E.L.F

Megan Wadsworth said...

I still swear by Cover Girl perfect point (the mechanical pencil style)

Blue Dog Belle said...

Right now I'm using a cover girl liner in dark brown. Love those auto sharpening pencils.

Alana Christine said...

Alisa Marie said...

This looks fantastic - I just ran out of my good Eyeliner it was by Makeup Forever and waterproof! It was amazing, but too pricey! I definitely need to try this kind!

My favorite is the Cover Girl perfect point eyeliner. I tried the liquid eyeliner from e.l.f. but I don't have a steady enough hand for that, maybe the cream would look better!

Amber said...

I actually use 2 eyeliners. I wear Estee Lauder Double wear on my lower lashes and Revlon Color Stay liquid liner on the top for a smoother, thinner line. I LOVE them both!

Taylor said...

Stila and Smashbox are my fav's right now. I use them both. My Stila is waterproof and I use it on my lower lash line and then I just my Smashbox liner for my upper lid. :) Thanks for the fun giveaway!

alicia marie said...

I usually use jumbo-type eye pencils for a smokey look, from NYX or PINK from Victoria's Secret brands...or Prestige's liquid eyeliner because I like their felt tip applicator for making a neat winged look.

ps: this is my first time commenting, because I normally just read and laugh not thinking you'd want to read my thoughts, but I thought I'd try it out today, so HI! :)

Tif said...

I use Revlon Color Stay in Black!

I for real JUST bought this stuff this weekend when I was home! I've been hearing about it too and randomly bumped into it in Targay when I definitely did NOT need to be buying cosmetics. I bought the little liquid one though instead of the pot. LOVE IT

I was using this eyeliner by maybelline that was just like the ELF one you are talking about. I'm almost out so next time I'll have to try this one because so far I've been happy with ELF makeup!

I love mac's eye kohl in smolder

Claire said...

I haven't really found "the one" yet, but right now I like Clinique and Mary Kay. They both do a really pretty plum/eggplant pencil that looks great on green eyes.
