Check out my ELF haul video here!
I now understand why the reviews were so mixed about this product.
It does take a bit of pressure to get the product to come off onto your eyes. It does tug at the skin. However, it really is waterproof. It does not smudge or budge or do anything until you go to take it off. You could even rub your eyes and it will still be fine. That being said, you can't blend it out. There is no moment where you can take a blending brush and blend the edges, where you put it is where it will stay.
Although it stays put like crazy, it's not as hard to remove as you might think. I figured it would take a ton of scrubbing to get this off, but with a good makeup removing wipe, it's gone in a couple swipes (just the same as a Maybelline color tattoo or similar product).
So, I too have mixed feelings about it.
-no smudging, creasing, fading, etc.
-no need to sharpen, it's retractable
-tough to apply
-tugs on skin
-cannot blend/smudge it out
I hope this was helpful!
Thanks for reading.
