Tester Wednesday – e.l.f. Jet Black Eyeliner


Hi guys!

I definitely had an “a-ha” moment while shopping for a liquid eyeliner at my local Walmart last weekend.

Could you tell now how much I love to do product reviews for you guys? All your comments and likes really encourages me to write better every time. As we transition from summer to fall, in my blog, you’ll see new series introduced here and there. So, keep checking back for new features. Alrighty! Enough of me blabbing, let’s get to the real stuff.


I was looking for a replacement liquid liner for my favorite LA Colors when I saw the e.l.f. eyeliner.  You might remember about a few weeks ago I did a post on Tester Wednesday series where I talked about their cream eyeliner. In it, I raved about how much I like the cream liner. Well, today I’m bringing in another eyeliner but in liquid form.


FYI, this is E.L.F. Cosmetics Jet Black Liquid Eyeliner in 0.15fl oz net wt. You can see here that the packaging comes in an elongated bottle with quite a user friendly handle and cute container. The applicator is of felt tip nip and is an okay size in my opinion.


The liquid liner has low pigment and applies okay but not over the top. It’s definitely not the best liner I’ve used from other drugstore brands. I find with a correct technique it dries to a nice black, but the formula is really runny and thin which requires you to wait for it to dry before going back to clean up your eyeliner or else it’ll streak. Much effort and work needed if you’re going for a simple look not to mention cat and winged eyes.

The reason it was happening was that the felt tip carries more product than is needed so it is difficult to handle it and smearing occurs. If you’re beginners, stay away from this product. It’s the most tricky liner I’ve tried thus far.


This liner is not waterproof and wears off super easily when in contact or rubbed with fingers. It doesn’t smear but just faded to almost zero formula.

Overall, I’m not happy with this product and I do not recommend this and will not reach out for it unless for emergency. It’s neither matte nor shinny finishing so to me, this one is a failure.

    I don’t think this type of eyeliner is worthy for me anyways because I usually shake a bit and this liquid eyeliner would mess me up all the time LOL, but don’t get me wrong I would love to try it if it came with a sample of something (:

    I am a huge liquid liner girl and I love this brand. I actually didn’t know it was at Walmart. now I will have to look. Elf is awesome. I stumbled on it once at Target before Target left Canada and have liked it ever since.

  6. I love elf products, but I do want to try the one with the felt tip!


  7. I have to be honest and say I’m not a liquid liner girl. But maybe after reading this, I might give this a try. Who knows I might convert :D. The problem i I’m clumsy and have always poked my eye or smudged it all around. Sigh :/ Thanks for the lovely post 🙂 Will share it with my liquid liner friends 😀


  8. Well I totally agree with you… I was not satisfied with this product after purchasing, rather I would go for NYC liquid liner…



  9. i swear by my collection felt tip liner it’s never steered me wrong so far 🙂 great review, shame about the product most people i talk to rave about E.L.F too :\

    I love liquid liner! I think my first one was from ELF and had similar low pigment. The best one from the drugstore that I used for years was the Revlon Colorstay before I upgraded to the KVD and Stila ones. Nice honest review 🙂


  17. It is such a shame when you buy a product and aren’t satisfied with it! I hate it! I am so glad you reviewed this product so other people know how it works! Im not a liquid liner girl so no worries for me! 🙂

    Great honest review! I am a liquid eyeliner fan too. Right now I go for the Maybelline one. It’s a nice pigment without being overpowering.

    I love liquid eyeliner. Too bad this one was a failure. I won’t buy this eyeliner brand.

    • I love liquid liner too. Except this particular ELF liner was too runny and not as pigmented as I expected. There are many drugstore brands that could perform much better than this one.
