Housed in a click pen is this wrinkle filler that is dispensed via a smooth, angled tip. The formula is nothing to write home about, but it’s a decent blend of silicones whose spackle-like texture helps to temporarily fill in and smooth superficial (not deep) lines and wrinkles.

The formula contains a small amount of antioxidants, including vitamins A and E, and none of the plant extracts are known irritants, which is good news. This would work well around the eyes, as it does not contain fragrance.

Considering the low price, this is worthy of a test run. It would be rated higher if it contained a broader array (and greater amounts of) anti-aging ingredients. However, it works as a wrinkle filler, provided you keep your expectations realistic (this won’t replace Botox or dermal fillers and how long it lasts depends greatly on how expressive you are).

Pros:
  • Inexpensive.
  • Fragrance-free formula’s texture helps temporarily fill in superficial wrinkles.
  • Easy to use thanks to its convenient angled-tip applicator.
Cons:
  • Doesn’t contain a broad range (or impressive amounts of) anti-aging ingredients that would allow this to be more than a wrinkle filler.

Brand Overview

e.l.f. At-A-Glance

e.l.f. (it stands for which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face) was founded by Scott Vincent Borba and Joseph Shamah. The story goes that one day Borba was shopping in a dollar store and noticed women dressed in designer clothing and sporting designer handbags loading up their baskets with inexpensive nail polish, eye pencils, and lip balm. He took note of the products being sold in such stores and quickly decided he could offer products of even higher quality at the same competitive price. His idea paid off, as e.l.f. has enjoyed continued success and increased distribution online and in retail stores.

For a line offering many products for just a dollar (OK, there are plenty that cost $3 and $5, too), there are a surprising number of hits in the mix (especially the makeup brushes). True, not everything is going to be as luxurious or innovative as some higher-end brands, but overall you're likely to be impressed with what they developed for so little money, and you may just find some beauty bargains!
