Here is one more shade from the “Long Lasting” range of Essence – presenting the review on the shade “Lucky Lead.” Read on to know how it fared for me.
My Experience with Essence Lucky Lead #20 Long Lasting Eye Pencil:
The long-lasting pencil liners by Essence are color coded and come with a twist-up style. Bits of information are printed on the body with silver color. The cap shuts with a click and hence is hassle-free to travel with. The packaging is simple, effective, lightweight and color coded…good enough for me.
The texture is smooth but not crumbly like the others from the same range. The tip does not break off which is what I was expecting. The matte texture leads the color to cling on the lashes and thus give a subtle look.
The shade is a pretty matte grey-ish black; the naming has been perfect! Those who want to wear something dark yet not black or brown, this is your pick. I find the shades from the range versatile and wearable. The price point is again a pro; hence beginners can try out variety of shades.
The staying power varies from 3-4 hours in full gory. After that, the shades starts to fade which is not a very pleasant sight as the fading is irregular and hence looks patchy. The pigmentation could have been better but since it is buildable, the intensity can be worked upon.
Pros of Essence Lucky Lead #20 Long Lasting Eye Pencil:
- Color-coded packaging.
- Twist up style, no wastage.
- Nice shade.
- No tugging or pulling.
Cons of Essence Lucky Lead #20 Long Lasting Eye Pencil:
• Fades after few hours.
