ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Black-Review

Website says:
Creates smooth lines that are defined and precise. Smudge-proof, budge-proof and water-resistant coverage for all day wear to combat against, sweat, tears and rain!
I got this in black from makeupmixshop for $3 and am now really tempted to get it in other colours as well.There are currently 4 shades in the line up: Coffee (medium brown), Black, Midnight (dark blue) and Ivory (off white )

I love cream/gel liners. I already have Coastal scents gel liner and POP hotpot gel liner (both in black). My first time using it I found it to be creamy indeed. It applied like a dream! (I used my angled brush)
The packaging is also great, an easy screw top jar, very simple and practical.My first thoughts  on packaging were its a mini version of ELF HD powder. CUTE
  I feel like this is totally different from my pther gel liners perhaps thats why its called cream liner. Its creamy soft. Its not very pigmented ,so i make sure to use right brush for this cream liner, as soft brush wont pick up t he right amount ,Use an angled , or thicker eye liner  brush, as they grab more color.It's very easy to make winged eye liner, it just glides on the eye, i had absolute fun using it. I let it dry or set in for few minutes.
The Liner stays on all day although the color fades a tiny bit.

The amount they also give is fairly enough considering I don’t use it every day, but with this liner a little goes a long way, don't forget to keep it upside down so it doesn't dry out quickly.

I recommend this to those who doesn't want to spend the money on expensive cream eyeliners but try want the same quality. For the price , and quality I will definitely be repurchasing but i different shades most probably Ivory!

Which one of ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner shade is your favorite? Have you trued any already? what are your thoughts?



  1. This looks absolutely gorgeous. :)In fact, I guess you must pick the ivory and coffee as well. So lovely!! :)

    i am dieing to get them.

  6. @ Ann
    Hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.


    I know :( they don't deliver to pakistan as well, so masalashop was like God sent to me.they have same prices. Do check them out. If you do,don't forget to have a look at their brushes.sooo soft.

  8. Wow it loks great! N cheap too :)

  9. Looks awesome!
    Is it comparable to MAC or Bobbi Brown liners?
    Because that would be very impressive~ :D

  10. awesome review! i just got myself the wet n wild gel liner for $4 and it works like a charm too! :)

  11. So cool.. I love the coffee one :)

    & it looks real nice on you.. I hope the ELF counter in India is stocking this :D

  12. @ cynthia

    yeah nice and cheap ;)

    cant compare it with Bobbi or mac as i haven't tried any of these, whenever i go to buy mac fluid line they are always out :(


    cool. ;)

    @ tanveer
    Hope so , do you elf studio line products available in india?

  13. @Sarah: No, not studio line.. They have just launched the other normal one.. & they don't have these cream liners.. I was so :(. The SA said they are in the process of importing the range slowly depending on consumer response..

    I told her if they keep getting all old outdated prdts - they will never get a good response :P

  14. i'm on it! eyeliner is always annoying to apply, to me, but this looks like it may be a little easier to use.
