I haven't made a WTF Beauty post in a long time (the last one was in September 2010). I think I just got into the habit of making my typical review posts and then rating the product poorly that way. But I'm sorry, I'm not wasting my time writing up a review post for this product. That's why I'm making it a WTF Beauty post!
For those that don't know, WTF stands for exactly what you think it does: What The F*ck. It's usually the first thing I say when a product truly fails and disappoints me. That's why I created WTF Beauty posts. Anyhow...
I purchased this during a 50% off sale on the e.l.f. Cosmetic's website, making it just $0.50. Even spending so little, I still felt like it was a total waste of money. This was a swatch-and-toss product to me. A lot of e.l.f. Cosmetics products are like that though; they're either really great and I can't believe they are so affordable, or they are really bad and I remember that sometimes you get what you pay for.
So why does this product land in a WTF Beauty post? I'll tell ya...
The first and very obvious reason has to do with the actual shade. The pigmentation is really lacking and doesn't apply evenly. Then, after a single use (and by a single use I mean after swatching) the tip was already slightly worn. I can't imagine how it would look after a few uses. I didn't even dare use this on my eyes. I know some people use this and are happy with it, but I can't understand why.
Maybe I'm just spoiled by other liquid liners that have great pigmentation and apply smooth and even. I own both drugstore brand and high end brand liquid liners; this e.l.f. Cosmetics liquid liner was the worst I've ever tried. Maybe I just got a bad tube? It's possible, but I know I can't be the only person who didn't love this. To sum it up: I like using liquid liners, but this one is not for me!
