I have decided to take a break from reviewing MUA glitter eyeliners. Actually, I have one more left to review but I haven’t been able to use it so far. So, I will try it out and review it soon. Meanwhile, I have another product for you today. This one is a glitter eyeliner too. Remember, I told you that I am getting addicted to glitter eyeliners nowadays? I had bought this product some time back. However, due to some reason or the other, I hadn’t managed to review it. Finally, after using it on a couple of occasions, here are my opinions about this product. Let us jump straight to the review, now.
Product Description (taken from the website):
Sparkling moments…in new york or london? The long-lasting, gel-based texture of the crystal eyeliner with a high pigmentation creates glitter eyeliner styles that are truly in a class of their own! Tip: apply the eyeliner as a topping on your lashes for glamorous wow-highlights. An accurate application is guaranteed thanks to the practical brush applicator available in the two shades 01 twinkly starlight and 02 black star.
Price: INR 249 for 4 ml
My Experience with Essence Crystal Twinkly Starlight Eyeliner:
Talking about the packaging, this one comes in a sleek transparent cylindrical glass bottle with a silver lid. The lid comes with an inbuilt eyeliner brush. The thin brush ensures easy applicability and is especially useful in drawing thin, precise lines. The brand name, product name and product claims are printed in black horizontally across the bottle. The shade name is printed on the lid. Overall, I find the packaging to be cute, sleek and travel-friendly. Coming to the fragrance, there is no fragrance at all. That’s right. This one is a fragrance-free product.
Moving on to the texture, the eyeliner is a liquid eyeliner with fine silver glitter particles. But one thing that I find a bit irritating is that at times, you really need to dig inside the bottle to get some product. Though the bottle looks as though there is loads of product inside, it is actually difficult to get it on the brush, sometimes. This eyeliner can be used on its own as well as beneath black eyeliner. You can also brush a little on your eyelashes to make it sparkle. This one would be perfect for night-outs or late-night parties.
The staying power is pretty good and this eyeliner stays on my eyelids for almost the entire day. But be really careful to not rub your eyes. The eyeliner will come off completely. It comes off easily with water. However, to completely get rid of the glitter particles, it is advisable to use an eye makeup remover.
It’s time to look at the pros and cons of this product.

Would I Recommend Or Repurchase Essence Crystal Twinkly Starlight Eyeliner?
Maybe, it takes a little effort to apply this eyeliner. I would prefer something else that takes less effort and is less time-consuming.
