AMW Reviews: ELF Feather Proof Moisturizing Lipliner

Good morning everyone!!!  I want to thank you all for the wonderful comments and comforting words!  As expected Monday was a very tedious and tiring day but I survived it!  And I ended my day reading your lovely comments which puts a big smile on my face...seriously, you all are the best :)

I will review a product  that I snatched from dear friend Gracie, sis! thanks for this!  I'm glad to have the chance to try this product coz I won't purchase it down here because I'm not a lipliner person!  Glad to have tried this and glad to announce?  I've used this a couple of times, lip liners are useful actually on those days you feel your lips aren't defined enough! :)

Pros
  • inexpensive
  • very pigmented
  • staying power is good
  • the liner isn't too soft nor too hard, just right!

Cons
  • has a tiny hint of "crayon" scent
  • not "hydrating", it actually felt dry on my lips just like regular lip liners
  • can I add, DRY again? lol
Overall

If you are looking for a lip liner that's inexpensive and works, go for this!  I have a MAC lip liner and the texture is different compared to MAC but the difference isn't too far. Lip liners are just lip liners, I don't always use lip liners anyways!  This is a good inexpensive lipliner to try... PERIOD! :)

Tips
from ELF
Proper lip lining application should be performed prior to adding gloss or lipsticks.  Gently shade upper and lower lip back and forth until color intensity is desired.  Fill in entire top and bottom lips with pencil.  Apply second coat if desired.

from AMW
  • if you have super dry lips like mine, moisturize your lips prior to lipstick application, press your lips over a  tissue paper to remove the "oil" and start applying the lip liner
  • top over with your lipstick to create a nice base for the lipstick to last longer
Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local ELF counters for approximately Php125.00 (approx $2.70) and $1.00 for international<-- thanks Khymm for letting me know the price!

Here are the 2 close up shots of the lip liner
Spice is more on the brownish shade
closer to my natural lip color


Bitter is more on the dark red side

 

Swatch on hand

 

On lips, see how dry my lips are?
No lip balm, no top coat


Do you own an ELF Lip Liner?
What shade?  How do you find it?
Like it? Like to Toss it?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  5. I rarely wear lipliners because I usually forget about them! Hehe. I have some from NYX and they're just OK.

    I'd love to get some of this but you're right, for us it'll cost more than a dollar. Sucky :(

  17. Vanessa M I know what you mean! these lipliners are dry to the lips but they're ok because the price is cheap!

    Teeyah, well it actually helps especially if you use them to contour your lips, its not over the top and your lips look so shaped!

    Y, yes you're right! :)

  18. Catherine, hahaha those lip swatches look crazy, just to prove how ugly my drawings are! hahaha!

    Fifi, I haven't tried NYX's but I am not a lipliner wearer too! Yes, it costs more than a dollar to us here!

    Khymm , thanks for letting me know! :) You know what? You can always use this and you can always top with a lipstick or gloss! it'll work!

  19. Prettybeautiful, ahahaha no way! you don't have humongous mouth!

    Acutelife, I know what you mean, at first it felt awkward to re-do the lines of your lips! but when you get used to it, its ok, it really depends on the lipliner shades too!

    Mimi, let me know how you like it when you have the chance to try!
