Hello lovely people. How are you all doing? I can’t believe this year is about to end. Time flies by so quickly, in blink of an eye. 2014 will be here soon. Speaking of which, many weddings have lined up during starting of the year.
As wedding season is approaching I decided to do a mini haul by trying some stuff. Let me tell you the Maybelline nail paints are a dream. I bought two shades and got the stickers free *happy dance*
Today’s pick is lip liner from Essence.
Product Description: The cool lip liner colours ensure clear contours and beautiful, shapely lips. A practical effect: the lip liner is smudge-proof and especially long-lasting.
Price: Actual MRP is 129/- but beauty shops usually give discounts. I got it for 99 bucks.
Shelf Life: 3 years
Ingredients: 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 CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide).
Packaging: It is in a pencil form. The body is made of wooden and is in same colour as lip liner shade. The pencil has a grey plastic cap which gets secured pretty well.
Texture: The texture is creamy so it glides on smoothly without any tugging.
My experience with Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve:
My motive behind purchasing these lip liners were to use as lipstick. I wanted something cute yet budget friendly. I also bought honey bun with this shade and these two are the perfect MLBB shades for me. These liners are well pigmented. The colour payoff is really good. Using them as lipstick with clear gloss is my favourite look these days. I wore it on my bare lips without any lip butter yet they glided on easily. The first time I applied it, its tip broke being creamy. I need to exfoliate before applying all over my lips. It worked great as base for lipsticks. I applied it before going to college around 10 am and had a light meal at 11 am. The lip liner didn’t survive through that. I re-applied again and it was put for 4-5 hours without eating anything. It has no particular fragrance.
Pros of Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve:
• Can pass as MLBB shade.
• Can be used as lipstick.
• Great base for lipsticks.
• Staying power is good.
• Makes lipstick last longer if used as base.
Cons of Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve:
• Sharpening leads to wastage of product. I wish they were retractable pencils.
Do I recommend Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve? Yes, trust me on this one. You ought to try once.
Will I re-purchase Essence Lip Liner Satin Mauve? Yes and all also other variants.
Final verdict: These lip liners are really cute. Being a college going girl these are very budget friendly. Not only for college girls but it will work for everyone. They are very versatile.
