Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail!!!
Definitely love this product! This was the first liquid eye liner I ever tried, Its so easy to use! I'm just a bit disappointed to see that elf is beginning to raise up the prices on their essentials products.
Most Helpful Critical Review WHAT HAPPENED
I've been using this eyeliner in black for years, and have literally recommended it to all of my friends. Then, all of a sudden, it changed. I bought a new black one recently and it wouldn't go on in a solid line. Even if I tried to go over it to make it darker, it was too runny and wouldn't go on in a solid line. I thought it was a fluke, so I bought another, but I had the same problem. Bring back the old formula, whatever it was... :(

Perfect for not oily or not often touched lids
Makeup77 from Milwaukee, WI, USA
The people who have trouble with this I can't relate to. I have average oily lids and I don't touch my eye makeup, so this lasts all day and is perfectly pigmented. Also, with an actual brush, instead of those horrible marker tips, it doesn't skip and it's easy to see how much liquid is on the brush. Get the line right against your lashes and quit touching your makeup! This stuff gives such a smooth line. Don't ruin a product with low ratings because you can't quit touching your face, which you shouldn't be doing anyway! This is the best! Textured eyelids get a smooth line. Good at age 45.
Smudges almost immediately
Melissa1920 from Springfield, IL
I love this kind of paint brush. The liner goes on easy, dries, and is easy to get off, but smudged all over upper lid within a half hour. I have oily lids, but I used a primer with setting powder. It's November in the Midwest (not hot or humid, no rain), and I was just just out to lunch. This one is marketed as "no-smudge," but I'm hoping there's a waterproof one with the same brush design that works better - I don't usually have an issue with waterproof liquid liner. I can't use it so I'm throwing it out.
sam from Philadelphia, PA
Not sure why so many people are saying this eyeliner isn't pigmented, it is. It goes on black & dries down into a black matte finish. I had to take away a star because the only thing that I don't like about it is how it can smudge or run very easily. Do not wear this eyeliner if you're planning on having an emotional day or want to take a quick nap, it will run & it will smudge. Other than that, it's a solid liner & I use it almost every day.
Liquid Liner Lovely Price

This liquid eyeliner converted me from eye pencils a few years ago. This is my everyday favorite.

Not Long Lasting

I just bought this today, and was so excited to try it— however, it wore off in less than an hour. It also fades super easily with the slightest touch!! I had high hopes because elf is always really good, but I was really disappointed about this.
Eif gray liquid eyeliner
Rennis26 from Nevada
Having used liquid eyeliners in the past i know they stay on a bit longer so I ordered Elf liquid eyeliner. I am very glad I did. The price is outstanding and the value even better.I've used many eyeliner brands and ELF is very comparable to higher priced liners. I ordered two of them so I am good to next year probably. I do wish ELF did an eyeliner in Brown , as many of us mature ladies can't wear bold blacks anymore without looking Scary . Please consider this request. Enjoy using ELF product and will return for more items when needed. Thank you
Such a disappointment
Janni from undisclosed
Even though I love Elf products, they really do know what they're doing, but they missed big time with this eyeliner.
Not pigmented, smudges all over the place, doesn't last more than hour. If I could return this I would but I threw away the receipt because Elf has never disappointed me, but just my luck.
Has helped me a lot
Bray from Los Angeles
Tbh I was so bad at doing my eyeliner before but I've been practicing with this product and I've gotten so much better. I love that it's smooth when you glide it and if you mess up it's easy to remove with wipes and doesn't leave your eye dark after. The only thing is that it's messy when you open it fast. The liquid kinda pops. Other than that I love this.
I wanted to love it:(
belles from wa
I really wanted this to work. Genuinely thought that i'd like it, i've seen amazing reviews about it. My friend wears it during soccer practice and it does not move. I don't know if i got a dud, but it flakes and smears with barely a touch. Maybe the formula changed idk. The pigment is great and dries completely matte but it will not last.
my ride or die
arson from washington
absolute 5/5, this eyeliner has been my go to forever and it hasn't failed me. i've slept in it with little to no smudging, i cry in it and it doesn't run, it's not really streaky or watery, dries down well. gotta love it
Cheap and reliable
Rosa from Modesto
Not the best eyeliner but for the price you can't beat it. The long brush allows for a sleeker look and it does a good job staying on for a days makeup. love the pigment
Amazing eyeliner :) Holy Grail product < 3
OlivevilO from California
It's the first eyeliner I started using, and it's just amazing. I have no issues with it :)
Lyz from New Jersey
I bought this eyeliner to practice doing winged liner because I'm trying to learn how to do it and I feel like it made it harder for me. It's so streaky and the brush isn't very precise. The tip of the brush also came a little bent. Overall I'm just not a fan of this eyeliner.
Eellis from undisclosed
I've used this several times trying to like it because it's so cheap but it just isn't a good product. I do have semi oily skin but as soon as this liner dries it flakes off really easily.
im so sad, what happened to the old formula??
jan from chicago
i have been using this eyeliner since like elementary school and it has NEVER done me dirty and i've never trusted others. however like a couple months ago when i ran out, every drug store near me seemed to never have this in stock, so i had to settle for a wet and wild one. so a week ago i realize they're stocked again so i buy one and i go home and try it and um, it's terrible??? it's so opaque and liquidity that i had to put 3 layers to make it sorta black, even then it was still very patchy. and when i had it on, i LIGHTLY smudged it and it all came crumbling down. it felt the same as erasing marker off of a whiteboard with your finger. i never write reviews but this has left me HEARTBROKEN < /333 i dont know if i got a messed up formula but i just read another review that had the same issue as me. so sad:(
The absolute best.

As a makeup artist I'm always looking for the best products for clients as well as myself, and THIS IS IT. nothing beats this eyeliner AND the price.
Returning to my roots
Truxci from US
This is that one drugstore product I tried a prestige alternative for and was disappointed. I always come back to my holy grail.
10/10 will continue using
Hunny_Bunny from Calhan, Colorado
bought it a week ago, i've been using it for a while actually, honestly one of my favorite eyeliners, the coverage is amazing and i love the brush, my only criticism is that it can smudge throughout the day if it's hot outside, other than that i love it.
Charcoal shade is a bust
Nettle from Nebraska
I ordered the charcoal shade because I was wanting a dark grey liquid liner, when I tried it though it looked just like the black liner. I swatched it on my hand multiple times and that was when I noticed that it isn't really a grey formula, it is black based with greyish/silver flecks of glitter in it which is not what I was looking for at all.
I've used this product for years and it's remained my fav
Erin from Johnson city
I use this eyeliner for everything and it's never really done me dirty
not so good
salem from wouldnt u like to know
this product is overall not worth it. it's okay for 3 dollars but i'd definitely not buy this again. it looks okay for the first maybe 30 minutes but it fades(? it doesn't smudge but parts of it like go away, like chipping almost?) after any more than that. and it also does the chipping thing really quickly if you have hooded eyes. also it takes a pretty long time to dry.
Aheiland from undisclosed
Not opaque at all. Have to go over it at least three times to get it somewhat black. And it doesn't look good. It rubs off so easily and doesn't stay.
JMGL from Montreal
I ordered this product in charcoal and the color is perfect. The applicator is easy to use. The liner lasts until I remove it. Highly recommended!
