My Experience with Essence Blacklove Extreme Lasting Eye Pencil:
My relationship with kajal started with Sringar and then moved onto some homemade kajal and then I stuck to Gel liners. Somehow gel liners were a bummer for me, even though I used them for 2-3 years! I slowly moved to eyeliners, as I felt them comfortable and no mess and then used Gel liner only for tight lining. After introduction to IMBB, I learnt the trick of using black eyeshadow powder and stuck to it! My eyeliner is almost up and when I went shopping to buy a new one, I came across this “extreme” lasting eye pencil and I wanted to give it a try!
The eye pencil has to be sharpened. The eye pencil looks deceiving at the first, it has a black plastic end that looks like a twister to bring the eye pencil up and only after sometime of trying, I realized that the pencil is a sharpening one. It isn’t made of wood. The eye pencil can be sharpened easily. The eye pencil comes with a cap and it is sturdy enough. The complete eye pencil is black in color in reference to its name and has silver writings. The eye pencil has a soft texture and glides like a dream. It is very creamy and drawing lines are very easy. The color is deep pigmented black and an absolute favorite of mine. The finish is matte. I bought this product for both my waterline and occasionally over the lid application. The eye pencil doesn’t irritate the eyes, when applied on waterline, however on me the product doesn’t last long more than 1 hour but I do not want to complain as I had this issue with the best of eyeliners/ pencils.
I also apply it a little below my waterline and the product stays for more than 9 hours! On the lid, it is a little difficult to get a clean sweep in one go, as I have some loose wrinkles but with smaller liners you can achieve a good look and the product stays for more than 9 hours! It doesn’t smudge or fade but near the crease where I created a tiny wing smudged and was gone and the product was settled at the crease but other than that the product was exactly at the same place where I had applied. As seen in the swatch, I did a rigorous rubbing for 10-12 times and the line is still there! The product is also water proof and this product just came at the right time before the cold snowy winters! The product is really long lasting and to see how long it lasts, I applied the product for the whole day and it stayed with no smudging (except for the corners) and after around 14hours, I removed it as I needed to sleep.
Overall, it is a beautiful affordable one from Essence. They have launched 4 colors and I can’t wait to buy all of them! If you are looking for a cheaper no smudge solution. This product is for you!
