This is going to be a quick review of the Essence Long Lasting Eye pencils. These are not a new product by any means, but they are my favourite eye liners at the moment so I thought that was as good of a reason as any to review them now.
I own every shade that that is available in Australia (I think??). Of the eight shades there are two mattes (Black Fever and Hot Chocolate), four metallic shades (Hot Scorch, Berry Merry, Cool Down and C’est La Vie!) and then two shades that contain some silver micro glitter (I have a Green and Tu-Tu Touquoise).
I use these in the water line with great success and I do not find that they bleed into the corner of my eyes like other liners have done in my past. I love the colour selection offered. Originally I held off on purchasing the blue-toned colours, but now that I own them I find I use them on the lower lash line regularly and they make my blue eyes pop.
You can smudge these liners out when you initially apply them, but you need to move quite quickly as once they set they don’t budge – which I love! As you can see from the swatches these are very smooth and pigmented and they go on to the eye without tugging or pulling the skin.
I very much enjoy the fact that these are mechanical liners. Sharpening liners is one of my pet hates so it is so nice to just twist up the product without needing to worry.
Now, to round this off, we should comment on whether these liners live up to their ‘long lasting’ claims.
Yes. They are long lasting 🙂
I find these last extremely well even in our Australian heat which has the capacity to melt pretty much anything off my face.
So, that is it. These retail for about AU$3 which is a fantastic price point. The long lasting eye pencils from Essence are fantastic, budget-friendly, cruelty-free liners. I use these above any other liners in my collection.
If you know of other colours in this collection I would love to know about them – please comment below.
I hope you have a fantastic day!
