E.L.F.'s (not) Waterproof eyeliner pens... But still good

We should be having another giveaway soon! This one will be sponsored by DesignUrNails - an online retailer of Konad stamping nail art. I'm very excited about this one, and I really hope you all are too.

Last night I meant to take swatch pictures before I left for Cheesecake factory. Time got the best of me and before I knew, it was time to leave. I completely forgot my camera, which was a bummer because it was also my best buddies birthday. We had a lovely time regardless, but I had to prep for my eyeliner pictures today while my daughter took her afternoon nap. Onto the review!

E.L.F. waterproof eyeliner pens on my eyes in plum and black

E.L.F. Waterproof eyeliner pens are nice. They're definitely my first choice for my daily activities. They go on dark and heavy, with a clean line. It can be smudged right after application but not as easily as a cream or pencil liner.

As far as "water-proof" I'd say a little bit. I've been splashed in the face twice without any runs. Twice (in one day!) at Six Flags New England, and once at Old Orchard Beach in Maine. Luckily, neither time did I have a makeup mishap. Don't dry/pat your eyes after they get wet though!!! Here is an image of my hand where I ran cold water over the liner.

water proof eye liner not that waterproof, drips

It sticks pretty well with water, but you can see some drips and bleeding. Also, if you touch the liner after it gets wet then you're definitely OUT OF LUCK. It's a mess.

As far as the color goes, the black is nice but I prefer Plum. Plum is actually more dark then black and coats really well. I cannot give a good review of Midnight because my pen arrived dried out. I tried reviving it with water but you can see it didn't work.

Any other eyeliner's you gals use that claim to be water-proof when they're really not? I'd like to know so I can avoid them.
