e.l.f.com has really impressive sales, whether shopping on their website or through Amazon. So impressive, that I feel no guilt buying e.l.f makeup once or twice a month. After all, some items are under $1. There's always something new to try, whether it's a product offering something different or an intriguing color. I wasn't planning on wearing blue eyeliner with vampy violet, but my package arrived and I was eager to try them both. So, I played in makeup!
Excuse the dark photos, I was in my bedroom having fun, and it's late...so there's no sunlight available! Also my excuse regarding my hair, lol.
The Intense Ink Liner is pretty freaking cool. Goes on smooth and dark, and it was simple to make the winged tip thin as I would normally have it, but I went for a thicker tip tonight. The only issue is when using face wipes, trying to rub it off and washing my face. It would not come off. Even as I write this post, I still have liner on my lids. It also stains, so my finger tips show evidence of me trying my best to rub/wash it away. This would be perfect one a sweaty night out, because it won't easily wipe away. But, for a night when I'm just trying my new items, it's pretty annoying.
It won't stop me from using it though! It was super easy to use and the pigment is rich. I will have to search for cleaning hacks since the ones I know don't work!
It was my first time trying a liquid concealer, instead of my usual MAC cream concealer. The HD Lifting Concealer (medium) worked very well with a blending sponge. It didn't irritate my eyes, nor did I feel the pulling I would trying to blend cream concealer. I could be pretty rough.
Just dot the blemishes and lines around my face and blend with fingertips. You can use setting powder afterwards to make it last, but I didn't since I planned on washing it all off a few minutes later. It didn't hide the lines under my eyes like I hoped, but I did achieve good coverage of the dark areas. I do think the results are better than my norm.
