Review: E.L.F. Cosmetics Mineral Lip Liner

Liner in Raisin
I didn't get much into lip liners until I started doing makeup professionally. I didn't realize many people wore lip liner almost invisibly, using natural shades to create a more defined lip shape. I fell in love with a wind-up lip liner, but it was much too expensive for regular use. When I went looking for an affordable vegan alternative, I was delighted to discover the E.L.F. Mineral Lip Liner.

  • Very affordable ($3)
  • Easy to apply (no sharpening)
  • Goes on smoothly
  • Natural ingredients
  • Vegan formula - no carmine or beeswax
  • Can be difficult to determine what color you are getting from the site
I am a big fan of windup lip liners because they are much more convenient to use. There is no sharpening and no mess. I can even use them on my clients. This formula in particular is soft and goes on very smooth. It rates a low 1 on the EWG Skin Deep database, which is very gentle. If you have environmental concerns about a plastic tube verses a pencil, I recommend looking for somewhere to recycle (such as Origin stores). I wish that the colors online were more accurate, as it can be hard to tell what you're getting. Raisin is a nice neutral to deep shade, while rose is a pink neutral shade. I would love to see more colors as well, especially a true red. Otherwise, this is a fantastic vegan budget find and I highly recommend it for everyday wear.
