Springing a whole dollar for a product is not much, I will give you that. But I guess I still expect even the cheapest products to perform a bit. Since I’m typically a thrifty shopper, I know that you can find some truly splendid beauty products for much less than the high-end brands would have you believe.
However, the e.l.f. Eye Widener Pencil is not one of them. I did like that the pencil came with it’s own sharpener built into the cap, but that cap did not even stay on the pencil. I kept losing it around my makeup case. The pencil itself feels fine in your hand. I applied it to the inner lower lid rim- it’s supposed to brighten your eye lid rim and hence make your eyes look more open. I couldn’t even get the white to show up. It works fine on my hand, but nothing applied to my lid line. I warmer the pencil by rubbing it a bit and tried again, still nothing.
So overall, quite the disappointment. Has anyone else tried this product and had a similar or different experience? Of course, I will still shop at e.l.f. since most of their products are enjoyable for me and give me the freedom to stock up and play with products without breaking my account.
