Essence Lip Liner – Review

Hey beauties! Today on the blog I’ll be sharing my thoughts on four of my favourite Essence lip liners that i’m loving at the moment. Essence is constantly improving the quality of their products. And I must add that I adore their longlasting lipsticks, some of the shades are true gems in my makeup collection. Now, I’ve never really considered using a lip liner in the past because I just felt like it was a extra useless step in my makeup routine and to be honest, sheer laziness! But of recently it’s now become a essential part of my make-up routine


02. Wish Me A Rose is a beautiful, nude rosey pink shade.

05. Soft Berry is a brown nude shade with purple undertones.

06. Satin Mauve is a cool, deep
mauve shade.

15. Honey Berry is a mauve pink shade with purple undertones

First off, The packaging of these lip liners are pretty simple, nothing fancy. They are standard wooden pencils with a plastic lid.

When I first applied these lip liners, I found that it glided on smoothly while providing great colour pay-off. You don’t need to apply too much pressure or tug at your lips to get an opaque line. The texture of these lip liners are so creamy and the longevity of these are not bad at all. I can get roughly 6/7 hours wear out of them.

They feel very comfortable on the lips, not too drying and usually this is a common issue that I have with most lip liners, as they tend to further dry out my already dry lips, however this was not the case with these. They work great for under lipsticks or you could easily wear them individually. These lip liners also come in a variety of 8 shades, containing 1.2 gram of product. I’m definitely going to be trying out the other shades!

Overall, I absolutely adore Essence lip liners and with these being incredibly inexpensive at only R18,95 each, you don’t need to spend loads of money for a good lip liner.

Essence is available at Dis-Chem and Clicks Pharmacies Nationwide
