Hello lovely ladies! How is everybody?
Today’s review is on a lip liner from Essence. I am hooked on this brand. It is perfect for college-going girls like me because it delivers quality products at reasonable price. It doesn’t burn a hole in my wallet and also it is cruelty free. Let’s get on with the review and see how it worked.
The lip liner color ensures clear contours and beautiful, shapely lips. A practical effect: the lipliner is smudge-proof and especially long-lasting.
Hydrogenated coconut oil, hydrogenated palm kernel glycerides, mica, cera microcristallina (microcrystalline wax), hydrogenated palm glycerides, myristyl myristate, rhus succedanea fruit wax, behenyl alcohol, hydrogenated coco-glycerides, cetyl palmitate, carnauba (copernicia cerifera) wax, hydrogenated castor oil, sorbitan palmitate, stearalkonium hectorite, propylene carbonate, tocopherol, lecithin, ascorbyl palmitate, glyceryl stearate, glyceryl oleate, citric acid, may contain: ci 15850 (red 6 lake/red 7 lake), ci 77491, ci 77492, ci 77499 (iron oxides), ci 77742 (manganese violet), ci 77891 (titanium dioxide).
It’s a wooden pencil lip liner which needs sharpening. The colour of the body is the same as the shade of lip liner. The pencil has a grey plastic cap which gets secured pretty well.
My Experience with Essence Lip Liner – Femme Fatale:
Femme Fatale is a French word and its literal translation is fatal woman. Females who are seductive and attractive, yet clever, a bit evil, and mysterious are femme fatale and this colour is true femme fatale colour. It’s a vibrant and bright red and very different from Red Bush from this brand. It has blue undertones which makes my teeth appear whiter (added bonus). It’s a bold lip colour, so definitely not for casual and laid back days. It has a creamy texture. The tip breaks easily because of it, but it glides on smoothly on the lips without any tugging.
If you have chapped/flaky lips, I suggest you to scrub your lips before applying this liner. The pigmentation is heavenly. It has matte finish. The staying power is good. It won’t survive a heavy meal, but without eating or drinking, it stays for good 5 hours.
Pros of Essence Lip Liner – Femme Fatale:
- Works great as a base for red and dark lipsticks.
- Good pigmentation.
- Staying power is good (if used as a base).
- Makes your teeth look whiter.
- Purse friendly.
Cons of Essence Lip Liner – Femme Fatale:
Product wastage due to sharpening, I am fonder of retractable pencil liners.
I recommend this product and I will surely repurchase this. It doubles as lip liner and lipstick.
