My Experience with Essence Ready For Red Long-Lasting Lip Liner:
The lip liner comes in a red colored retractable pencil with a cap of same color. The packaging is vibrant and sturdy though it is made up of plastic. The name of the shade is written on the middle of the lip liner. I simply love the concept of retractable pencil, as you don’t have to involve in messy sharpening again and again.
Ready for red is a true bold red shade. It is free of shimmers. The lip liner is completely fragrance free. The pigmentation is awesome. It gives opaque finish in single swipe. The lip liner gives a pretty matte-finish. Though it is a complete matte lip liner, it does not dry out the lips.
The texture of the lip liner is soft and smooth. It glides smoothly on exfoliated lips. I did not face any tugging or pulling but the lip liner is so soft that it tends to break if you apply more pressure. It feels light on the lips.
The staying power is really good. It stays for 6-7 hours when I use it as a regular lip color. It makes my lipstick last really long. It may even survive light meals. It prevents the lipstick from bleeding. It does not stain the lips and can be easily taken off with a makeup remover. Overall, I totally love this lip liner.
