Essence Extra Long Lasting Eyeliner Pen - Review and Swatches
Mar 08, 2015 - Abida -
I have always wanted to try eyeliner pen because they are so much in rave nowadays. They are meant to get you perfect wing, dramatic or simple line in quick and hassle free way. When it comes to try new products which are affordable and of good quality the first name comes in mind is Essence. Essence have eyeliner pens in almost 3 types, Extra Long Lasting, waterproof and easy 2 use and i have picked the Essence Extra Long Lasting Eyeliner Pen. Lets see how did it turn out.
The pigmentation is good and give quite good color pay off but with two swipes you will get the jet black color. The consistency is thin and gives glossy look but dries into semi matte finish which doesn't give flaky or built up look. It dries really fast and is perfect when you are in hurry and do not have much time to let it dry. Because of its fine tip you can draw what ever line you want and is really helpful for beginners who are afraid to use gel eyeliners. The tip is not very thin so it can be tricky to achieve very thin line but i think there are other options available in essence eyeliner pen which have thin tip.
The good thing it is really long lasting, it stays on eyelids for more then 6 hours. Well i do not have oily lids so may be it will decrease the lasting time on oily eyelids. It will take effort to rub off it completely so you can say it is smudge proof. As it is not water proof so you can remove it easily with water and don not have to put much effort for removing it. The one thing i have noticed that if you put it too long then all the ink will drain down so you have to shake well before using or put it upside down.
Overall Essence Eyeliner Pen is quite good for its price it is long lasting, easy to handle, give good color payoff and great for beginners.
