How are you my lovely ladies? I am back here after a mini break and it feels so great to be back on IMBB – the place I love the most. I was stuck with my final graduation exams and that was the last step to be a BMS graduate, I feel so happy and proud. I was going through all the sweet reviews every day, but somehow did not have the time to comment, but now, it is going to be a regular routine of my life as it used to be. Coming to today’s product, it is a lip liner from the brand Essence. I have already reviewed the variant, I picked up 4 and this is the last one from the stash. Let’s go into the details.

My Take on Essence Lip Liner in Hot Chocolate:
The lip liner basically comes in 7-8 shades and all were equally beautiful, but I picked up the red, pink, berry and this shade. This one comes in a wooden pencil type in brown shade with silver packaging. The best part is that the shelf life is 3 years, so there’s no hurry to finish it off before it expires. It’s a thin pencil, so handy. Talking about the texture, it is very creamy and I was hoping not to get a hard one as I have used many liners whose texture is pretty hard. This liner feels very soft and glides amazingly on the lips. It can be used as a lip liner for lipsticks as well as a base. I normally use it as a base due to the lovely matte effect that it gives. Matte lovers will surely love these lip liners.
The lip liner does not settle in fine lines and has a very good pigmentation which would work great for pigmented lip as well. It is completely fragrance free. It’s a n*de brown colour which looks very decent and gives a sophisticated look. This shade will suit all outfits and looks. Fair skin tones will be able to carry it off very well, but wheat-ish and tan skin tones may not be able to because it may blend with the skin tone and the lips may appear bare. It would go along with all n*de lipsticks that you have; to provide a tight outline to the lips. The lasting power on the lips is around 3 hours since it is on the lighter side. However, a full meal won’t let it last for more than 1 and a half hour.
Like most other lip liners, the sharpening process causes a lot of wastage which wouldn’t happen if they were retractable liners. Also while application even if a little pressure is applied, it tends to break easily. I love this lip liner and it’s great for daily use. Do check out the bright summer shades from this range.
Pros of Essence Lip Liner in Hot Chocolate:
- Easy to use.
- Texture is very creamy.
- It glides very smoothly on the lips and can be used as a liner or as a base.
- A wide variety of shades available in this range.
- Makes lips appear fuller, gives a sophisticated look.
- Lasts for about 3 hours.
- Does not dry out the lips much.
- Shelf life of 3 years.
- Pretty n*de brown shade and matches perfectly with all neutral lipsticks.
Cons of Essence Lip Liner in Hot Chocolate:
- Sharpening leads to product wastage.
- May dry out the lips a bit, but not too much.
- May not suit wheatish and tan skin tones as it may blend with the skin tone
Would I Repurchase Essence Lip Liner in Hot Chocolate?
No, this will go a long way and I am not a big fan of n*des, so wouldn’t get this again, but would get the other bright shades from this range.
Overall, I liked these lip liners. These are super creamy and available in a variety of shades. You should try these out, I am loving this brand a lot!
