Essence lipliners {Review}

20160726_141823-01

I have been on the hunt for these longlasting lipliners from Essence for quite a while. Eventually after complaining on Twitter, Dischem quickly contacted me and let me know that they actually were available in the PE stores. I rushed to Dischem and picked up 3 shades:

  • Berry on my mind (10) – A lovely deep plum shade
  • Yummy Berry (03) – A brighter, but muted red shade (I don’t do bold and bright lips)
  • Girl Next Door (08) – A nude natural shade

These lipliners are great and really affordable. It’s great not to need a sharpener every time you want to wear lipliner. They glide on easily and are really pigmented. Also they don’t feel dry on the lips if you just use it as is.

There are about 8 shades and they are priced at around R26,95. Not bad at all, as I paid over R100 for a lipliner from another brand and it’s awful on the lips. It pulls, looks dry, and and and……  I wish I’d known about Essence lipliners at the time.

The only issue I have is with the Plum shade that seems to break every time I use it. I don’t have that issue with the other shades.

Lipliners are great for:

– Increasing the staying power of your lipstick

– Provides a nice colour/base for a gloss

– Used as is all over the lip for a matte lip look

These liners do not replace the original pencil liners from Essence, so you can choose whichever you prefer 🙂 These liners are available at Dischem and retail at R26,95 each. The pencil is a bit cheaper at around R18,95.

Have you tried these lipliners out?

  1. Hi there. No, never done lipliners yet…but I can see that l am going to brave new things after reading your posts….and if you need a subject to do a makeover on….feel free! 🙂

  2. I love Essence lipliners – but I prefer the older ones – they seem to last a little bit longer on me. I have the nude colour which I really love to use under a nude lipstick or gloss. And I agree- they are super affordable and better than some higher end products.

    1. Lynette I actually initially planned to say that in my post, but I honestly forgot when I was typing. I do prefer the original pencil, even if I have to sharpen them. But they’re so affordable you could have them all in your collection 🙂

      Thanks so much for popping in and commenting <3
