Essence Longlasting Eye Pencil Review

And we’re back to the formulaic reviews…

I guess if you’re still reading it’s because you are obsessed with makeup as I am and I’m sure we’d all admit to it! 😛 😛 😛

If that isn’t the case, you’re dropping by to show me some support and I appreciate that very VERY much.

Thank you! ❤ ❤ ❤

I am a big fan of Essence makeup, evident from my product reviews of their eyeshadow base (here), lipliners (here and here), and bronzer (here).

Today it’s the Essence Longlasting Eye Pencil which I featured in my last post and used it on my friend to create a scary psycho look (post here).

I have it in two shades; black and brown.

Hand swatch.

Swatches.

Description: Twist up gel pen eyeliner; the black one is in the shade 01 (Black Fever), the dark brown one is in the shade 02 (Hot Chocolate). Pretty smooth and opaque.

Where to buy: Watsons and Mydin.

Price: MYR 12.60 (as cheap as it is, it’s drugstore, so prices are bound to promotions and discounts!)

Some tests.

Rubbing swatch; it does rub off.

Pros:

Pretty black and opaque.

Swatches pretty smoothly.

Twist up mechanism always appreciated.

Very affordable!

 

Cons:

Not oily eyelid friendly.

Does rub off and when I used it on my friends, it transferred, quite easily.

 

Ratings;

7/10

This is an ok eyeliner; nothing too spectacular about it. I do prefer my Silkygirl twist up eyeliner which, despite it’s shortcomings, is pretty infallible on me.
