My Experience with Essence Ultra Last Lipliner 05 Rosewood High:
This lip liner comes in a black, round plastic pencil form with a cap. The design is very simple and compact. The bottom of the pencil is the color of the lip liner, which makes it easy to identify when you have more than one product from this range. I find this color-coding very helpful. The cap of this lip liner is easy to open and close and also travel-friendly.
The lip liner itself is odourless. The texture of the liner is creamy and there is no need to tug it on the lips. The colour also transfers easily on the lips from the pencil. The liner has never broken during application. There is no in-build sharpener but I am able to reach all ends with the rounded tip as well. If you prefer a very sharp liner this might be difficult to use for you; use the sharpener from other lip liners in such cases.
After application my lips feel slightly dry and the product settles into the fine lines of the lips. The finish is matte and the color would suit lighter skin tones well. The color is rose pink (as the name suggests) and looks like a perfect nude for lighter skin tones. I have dusky skin tone, hence this shade washes me out. I love wearing this color as the base color to tone down a darker shade of lipstick.
The staying power is quite good. The product is waterproof and hence the staying power is good too. The liner also survives meals and drinks but fades slightly. It wears out from the inside of the lips first and then from the outside, which makes it look uneven. It’s not possible to remove the product just with a wipe since it’s waterproof. Hence, you need a good makeup remover. Reapplication is a better idea.
The reapplication is required after 4 hours or so. By the end of the day, my lips feel slightly dry. Removing the product with micellar water is difficult and I have to use an oil-based remover to get rid of the product. Overall, it’s a lovely shade. It works well as a lip liner as well as an overall lip color.
