Today I am reviewing the 2 in 1 eyeliner pen from Essence cosmetics. This is the first time I am using an Essence product as I have read good reviews about the brand. I love using kohl and eyeliner, and to get the precise application I thought to try a pen eyeliner. I like the concept of dual an ended eyeliner pen as the thin end is for a precise winged look and for a dramatic bold look thick side can be used. The only unfortunate part is that it is only available in black color. Let’s find out more about it…
Price: 24 QAR
One eyeliner, two styles: whether you want to achieve a fine line for an elegant, classic look or an extravagant broad line for a dramatic look – with the essence 2 in 1 eyeliner pen, both are as easy as abc. With a fine tip on one end and a broad, slanted tip on the other.
As the name suggests, it has a dual ended tip. One side is very fine and long to get a thin and precise eyeliner application. The other end has a thick and broad tip applicator with the cap over both the ends. The cap shuts tightly with a click. The cap has to be pulled hard to open which makes it travel friendly. Both the tips are very hard while application. The overall packaging of the pen is in black color.
It has a matte finish and the consistency is very similar to an usual liquid eyeliner but not as smooth while application.
One swipe is not enough to get the required color. It requires two swipes to get the desired color on eyes.
Price: QAR for 1 ml
Shelf life: 12 M
My Experience with Essence 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen:
I like experimenting with different products of different brands. I like the idea of a dual tip in a single pen. The SA convinced me that it is a long wearing , waterproof, smudge proof product though this has not been mentioned anywhere on the website. I wear it for about 5 hours and it does not budge at all. I finally have to remove it with an eye makeup remover. It gives a matte finish once set and it sets quickly after application. Both the applicators are very hard to use.
Pros of Essence 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen:
• Sets to a matte finish.
• Long wearing.
• Do not budge.
• Dual applicator tip provided.
• Feels comfortable on eyes.
• Perfect for everyday use.
• Has no scent to it.
• Travel friendly.
Cons of Essence 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen:
• Applicators are very hard while application.
• Quantity of product is very less in terms of its cost.
• Pigmentation is not upto the mark.
• Limited shade available in this range.
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Repurchase or Recommend Essence 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen?
Yes, but only if the Essence comes out with different colors in this range. I definitely recommend this product. I like the product but find it bit pricey for the quantity provided.
