First Impressions: ELF Cosmetics Studio Makeup Remover Pen

If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook then you already know that a few days ago I made a huge ELF purchase! One of the items that I purchased was the ELF Cosmetics Studio Makeup Remover Pen; generally retails for $3.00 but I purchased it for $1.50 with a 50% off coupon. The concept of the pen is that you're supposed to be able to wipe away any makeup mistakes you've made; here's what ELF says about the product: 

"Mascara smears? Uneven eyeliner? Quickly remove or correct small makeup smudges, smears and mistakes without having to take off the rest of your makeup! The gentle and non-greasy formula erases even long wearing and waterproof makeup for flawless touch ups, perfect for throwing in your purse or gym bag when you're on-the-go! Infused with Vitamin E, Cucumber and Chamomile to moisturize and condition skin."

I was most excited to try this pen out because I always make mistakes when applying liquid eyeliner. Upon first using this makeup remover pen my initial thought was "ouch" this pen is rough particularly around the eye area and definitely not gentle at all! Slowly, it did clean up my makeup smudges the first time using it but when I used it a second time, the left over makeup (eyeliner) on the pen smeared on my face when i tried using it again simply because the tip becomes stained after 1 use. Imagine a highlighter and you wipe it over a dark pen, when you use that highlighter again the dark pen/ink will show up on the paper....this is the closest comparison I can come up with for this pen!

In general you guys know I am a big ELF fan, and have purchased dozens of their products; and although I love their stuff my reviews will always be honest...having said that, quite frankly I would not recommend this product at all; you will honestly have an easier time using a wet q-tip since it will be a lot more gentle on the eye area!
