E.L.F “Bitter” Lipliner Pencil Review

The “Bitter” Lipliner Pencil


E.L.F is a vegan and cruelty free makeup brand- all their products are vegan and cruelty-free. They are also quite affordable and tend to be very good quality for the price.
The lipliner that I tried out in the shade Bitter is no longer available on the E.L.F Cosmetics official page but can be found on Amazon and other sites. I bought it quite a while back but hadn’t tried it till a few months ago.

Pros

  • The first pro for me was that E.L.F is vegan and cruelty free- I am trying to only buy cruelty free products at the moment and I love shopping from E.L.F Cosmetics because I don’t have to Google a million things to find out what’s tested on animals and what is not.
  • I thought it was very affordable for a lipliner- I forget the exact price but it was a bit over a dollar if I’m not wrong.
  • The colour is really pretty! I was expecting something more purple because it looked more purple in the picture but I was pleasantly surprised when I realised it’s more of a deep pink colour. If you use very little of it with gloss it looks really natural and if you use more of it you get a really nice more obvious look.
  • It was easy to apply and soft to wear.

Cons

  • It’s a bit dry. As someone who already has dry lips this was not the best formula for me. I know wear it with lip balm underneath and lip gloss on top.
  • It doesn’t last very long so if you’re planning on wearing it when going out to eat take the pencil with you as you will need to reapply. However, the pencil is pretty small so it’s easy to carry with you- you can even put it in your pocket.

Final Thoughts


I thought the it was quite good for the price. The colour was pretty and if worn with lip balm/gloss you can easily wear it all day without your lips drying out. However, compared to other lipliners I have bought at a similar price this was not the best- it was pretty average in my opinion and I can see why E.L.F seems to have discontinued it. I will definitely finish the one I have but I don’t think I would buy it again. I would recommend other E.L.F Cosmetics product though- I use almost all of them and I love them!
Also random story about this review: the picture above was taken like months ago and the other two pictures with the pros and cons was taken a few days ago. I used a snap filter for the one above because I looked like crap and had no other makeup on but I realised the filter slightly changed the colour of the lipliner. So, a few days ago I took more pictures with no filter/editing so you could see exactly what it look like in real life. Yes, I was wearing the same tshirt in both pictures for some reason… And yes I have weirdly small hands- everyone (my sister) makes fun of them- but the rest of me is totally average I swear!
Also I hope you enjoyed this review- it’s been a while since I’ve done a makeup review. You can probably tell by the fact that the brand doesn’t even sell this product anymore lol…

5 Makeup Bag Must Haves

Makeup Bag Must Haves Collaboration

This post was written in collaboration with Ananya! These are her 5 must haves and feel free to go over to her blog to read my five! Check out her blog by clicking here. 

Our makeup bag must have versatile products such that a single product can be used for a variety of purposes. Today I am going to mention 5 which serve various multipurpose beauty tasks.

1. Coconut Butter

Coconut products are well known for their versatility. It has excellent moisturizing properties than the usual creams and lotions. It also gives long lasting effects. I suggest you can get this at any organic store or you could create it on your own by freezing coconut oil overnight in your fridge.

2. Lip And Cheek Tint

Benefit had come up with this idea long back and it has really been a blessing. It is one of the best dual purpose product. If you are not able to get this product, you could always use a lipstick too!

3. Mascara

You may have read this million times in a lot of blogs but these little wands are a must! They give a dramatic effect to your eyes and it could also be used as Khol for your waterline.

4. Face Mists

In case, you look tired, face mists will always help you give a fresh look and some even come with properties to keep your makeup set for a long time!

5. Makeup Wipes

These come really in handy in case you have disturbed your eye make up or lips and are a really good fix. Always carry makeup wipes as you may never know what could go wrong.

Hope you enjoyed those five and do go over to read my five on her blog by clicking here. Also let me know what you makeup bag must haves are in the comments below!

Tips for Dry Skin

As you guys know I have dry skin and I think these tips are super helpful especially with winter around the corner!

Beautyholics101

Hello my loves! As December rolls upon us i thought i would delight you guys with some tips and tricks for dry skin. As i have mentioned before in previous blogs, i have suffered from dry hair, oily hair and dry and oily skin throughout my life. So i understand how hard the struggle is.

Here are some things that i did to help my dry skin feel less bothersome.

I found that after taking showers often times made my skin feel worse afterwards. You would think that all you have to do is put on some lotion. FALSE! There are times when not even lotion would help.

Don’t take long showers:

I know how relaxing a good long 30min shower can feel after a long day, but having your skin in the water for that long really isnt good for your skin. Try and limit your showers to 5-10…
