Once upon a time I was browsing through the internet and I saw Rachael and many other people rave about these Essence lip liners. I was very intrigued to know, what all the fuss is about so last week I picked one up. I got it in the shade Satin Mauve. It was very hard to find because it seems like everyone wanted this shade, but honestly, I can’t blame them. This shade is a gorgeous brownish mauve, at least on me, and would look good on every skin tone. I am ghost white (like NW08 M.A.C.) and I love it. I can imagine it being a wonderful everyday color on deeper skin tones, because on me it looks kinda bold. If you have been waiting to find the perfect Kylie Jenner lip colour for really cheap then look no further, because you have found your match either with this color or Soft Berry.
The formula is really creamy, but not that much that it breaks and melts like crazy. It glides on smoothly and my lips look as moisturized as it is possible with liner. And also, the staying power is great. The formulation is awesome, so no need for lipstick or gloss if you don’t want. Many say that they are just like MAC pencils, I can’t compare, because I haven’t tried the MAC ones (shocker), but I truly believe that the quality of these is amazing.
Just a quick selfie to show you how the color looks on
In conclusion, there are a few other shades that I have my eye on, for example Honey Bun and In the Nude, also there is a translucent one which is awesome, because you can wear it with every single color you have in your makeup stash. Also, an honorable mention goes to Femme Fatale, because that color is to die for.
They cost 1.49$ in America and 1.09€ in Europe. You can find them in every place that sells Essence Cosmetics.
