My take on Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil Bling Bling:
I am literally crazy behind colored eyeliners, and if they are pigmented, smooth, stay all day on me and come in a twist up packaging, then I cannot help myself from getting them in each and every possible color. They add a bright pop of color instantly to eyes. This particular shade is very different from other liners shades.
The packaging is very simple and functional, it comes in a twist up pencil and its color is same as the liner shade, making it very easy to pick from a bunch of liners.
The shade “bling bling”, is a beautiful metallic gold color, it is a darker shade of gold and leans slightly towards bronze. It is not at all shimmery, I remember I had a golden liquid liner from lakme years back and it was full of shimmer. A drawback with golden color is it does not show up the same way on all skin tones, it might get merged with skin tone as well and this is not a very bright shade of golden, so I think it will be best suited for fair to medium skin toned. I have medium skin tone and on me it shows up quite well, but not in a really bright way, so I am slightly disappointed and wish it was little lighter shade of gold, but it would look great on fair skin tones, and will not show up in its full intensity on darker skin tones.
This shade is very versatile and can be worn different ways; my favorite way is to use it as a double liner along with black. The texture is very smooth and glides on like butter with absolutely no tugging at all. The pigmentation is great with this shade, and you only need one wipe to get full color payoff. The formula of this eye pencil is superb they are so smooth and can be smudged within a minute after applying. After which they set completely, once set they don’t budge and become completely smudge proof, it stays on my upper eyelid for a good 8 hours without fading or moving, I have not tired this one on waterline though. It can be smudged out as well to create different eye looks. I have never had any irritation or stinging with this liner.
It is completely waterproof, and will not come off with water and has to be removed with an eye makeup remover. When compared to other colored liners in the market for reference lakme eye conic kajal in different shades, I prefer these as they last slightly longer on me without fading. Recently I had to go to a function in evening, and I was in hurry and had absolutely no time for eye shadows or anything, and I paired this liner with a black liner to create a double liner look and clicked the picture after returning and wearing it for approximately 6 hours.
