ELF Studio Cream Eyeliner in Gunmetal

'Gunmetal' is a metallic blackened grey that looks particularly stunning as an overall lid color. I like to use Gunmetal more as a cream eyeshadow that gives a sheer wash of color rather than an eyeliner. As an eyeliner, it is quite sheer, but buildable. The reflective particles make it a very unique, beautiful shade.


      Single swipe                                         Blended all over the lid with a fluffy brush
I love to use this for a quick smokey eye. Using a blending brush, just apply all over the lid, apply some eyeliner and mascara and you're good to go! If you are using it as an eyeliner, you ll need a good 2-3 coats for the color to show up. Using it over a black eyeliner makes the color appear more vibrant. The staying power is amazing here. I don't even need an eye shadow base and the color stays budge-proof for over 5 hours!For $3, this is one hell of a multi tasker.

Available at Target stores and online at eyeslipsface.com

  2. Cream eyeliners always make such a good emergency base. Anytime I can't find my primer, I just spread some blacktrack all over my lid. =]

  5. @Vijii - Totally agree with you. And I can rely on gel liners as a base coz, they don't crease so much either!

  16. I keep reading mixed reviews on their gel liners, I heard that it dries out quick and that the color isnt so pigmented, I guess it depends on the shade. This looks great thou!

  17. Yeah, it does. I prefer this one more as a cream shadow than an eyeliner though :)
