I have been a very loyal buyer of Essence products as they always launch new products frequently which make me even happier to visit their colourful counter all the time. This time I picked 4-5 products from them and one of those is a lip liner called “Peach Beauty”. Read to know how this shade from their newly launched lip liners worked for me.
Price: Rs 249/-
Product Description by Essence:
The perfect pencil for lips with definition! The essence long lasting lipliner allows you to accurately trace the contours of your lips. The super soft texture ensures a simple application and provides intensive, long-lasting colour that won’t streak. With nude shades as well as many other colours, the choice of colour is huge. The retractable mine turns this lipliner into a practical beauty tool, even when you’re on the go.
My Experience with Essence Long Lasting Lipliner 04 Peach Beauty:
The Essence long lasting lip liners are recently launched ones as the earlier ones used to come in a pencil form which had to be sharpened. While these come in a retractable form which makes it even better since there is no product wastage. The packaging is a beautiful peachy coral colour which resembles the shade of the lip liner. I love that they have kept this style for packaging since it becomes easy to spot the shades in a few. It can be carried easily since the packaging is sleek and long like a pencil.
The shade “Peach Beauty” is a very pretty summery peach shade with coral hints which makes it look even brighter. The shade is beautiful and trendy at the same time, while it will totally compliment any day-wear outfit; it is great for the beaches and holidays too. The shade appeared to be very beautiful on my hands but when I swiped it on, I realised that this shade is something that is not made for the Indian skin-tones.
I have a fair to medium skin-tone with a little warm undertones and this totally washed me out. It just looked odd on my lips and it has that neon hint which makes my complexion look darker and tan. But women who have a very fair skin-tone can totally try this out, as it will look extremely beautiful on them.
But coming to the formula, it is one of the best for a drugstore brand. It is super creamy and glides like butter on my lips. The lip liner is extremely soft which is a pro and a con too, as it glides without stoppage but breaks a lot due to its consistency. The pigmentation is lovely, but the colour takes 2-3 swipes to show up entirely. The formula is completely matte and it gives a perfectly defined shape to my lips. I would love to try the other colour because the formula is excellent, looking at the price.
It survives meals and snacks but the colour starts wearing off little by little. It stays for 5-6 hours on my lips, but once major colour goes off, it starts highlighting my lips. So either I need to touch-it up or remove it completely. I really loved how it performed except for the shade, so the tip would be to pick bolder shades rather than peaches and nudes.

Cons of Essence Long Lasting Lipliner 04 Peach Beauty:

IMBB Rating: 3/5
Will I Repurchase/Recommend Essence Long Lasting Lipliner 04 Peach Beauty?
Nope I wouldn’t recommend it for the Indian skin-tone as it totally washes us out. If you have a very fair skin-tone then this will compliment your skin beautifully. But the formula is great, so try the bolder shades which suits the skin-tone nicely!
I think Essence lip liners are one of the best that I have tried because they stay on my lips all day long!
