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).
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 and Mydin.
Black and opaque.
Brush is fine for the sharpest application!
Doesn’t skip because the formula is pretty smooth.
Pretty good staying power.
Layering is a mess as it cracks when the skin moves.
Funky smell (or perhaps I got a bad tube)!
Crumbles off sometimes.
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!
