First Impression, Essence Long Lasting Lip Liners

First of all, I have written a review on the Essence Lip Liners HERE and they are simply amazing!!!

Don’t take my word for it, I’ll link videos of YouTubers that like this product. The first one is a video by Tati, a.k.a GlamLifeGuru, and if you don’t know who she is I suggest you check her out on YouTube because she is amazing!!! The link is below;

(if you wanna skip to the part she talks about the lip liners, it starts at 5.42 minutes). She is an American makeup guru and she loves the Essence Lip Liners.

Now, Essence recently released a new set of lip liners and they come in a twistable pen mechanism! They are called the Longlasting Lipliners and these are just as amazing as the pencil ones. I couldn’t resist after I saw and swatched them in Watsons. I was supposed to post a review of a set of brushes but decided to post this instead!

 

Nothing to shout out about the packaging. A very standard twist-up pen.

My thoughts:

If you read my review, you already know how I feel about the original ones and these are no different. It is nicely pigmented, very opaque (I have very dark lips), glides on like a dream and appears matte.

I also have a video of a YouTube makeup tutorial by Evangeline Hawa. She is a local YouTuber and she is pretty amazing too! Her talk-through makeup tutorials are very narrative and she tells you why she uses each technique she does! She apparently loves these lip liners too! The video link is as below;

(if you wanna skip to the part she talks about the lip liners, it starts at 10.06 minutes).

 

Look out for a proper review in the future. Meanwhile, if you drop by Watsons do swatch them. The original lip liners cost MYR 7.30 and these new ones are MYR 8.90 (including GST; sorry, we Malaysians are still getting used to GST). MYR 8.90!!! What have you got to loose besides the MYR 8.90??!!!
