Essence Liquid Ink Waterproof Eyeliner Review

Essence is one of my favourite makeup brands from the drugstore and perhaps even one of the most affordable here in Malaysia.

This is a review of the Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner (waterproof).

The product.

The wand.

Close up of the brush applicator.

Description: Waterproof liquid eyeliner with a fine brush applicator. Comes in 0.1 fl. oz/3ml product. Comes in only black and dries down matte.

Price: MYR 13.90 (and as always, look out for a discount or promotion)

Where to buy: Watsons [updated 14/072017].

Swatch

Water test

It is waterproof duh!

Oil test.

With some Vaseline (This surprised me; it doesn’t move with oil! It only crumbles a tiny bit).

 

Pros:

Black and opaque.

Brush is fine for the sharpest application!

Doesn’t skip because the formula is pretty smooth.

Very affordable.

Pretty good staying power.

 

Cons:

Layering is a mess as it cracks when the skin moves.

Funky smell (or perhaps I got a bad tube)!

Crumbles off sometimes.

You can see it a tiny bit here. I do believe you’d be able to see it better if you watch the video. Just click on the picture and skip to to 3.03 see it.

6.5/10

If you can get away with a single layer then this liner would be great! For me, since I do mostly use this with dance makeup or stage makeup, it needs to be done quite thick and thus it cracks. Pass!

      • Oh yeah, that’s one thing I hate about Essence is that none of their products are safety sealed. So anyone could open them at the store! I bet that’s what happened with yours – someone opened it and didn’t close it tightly.
