I purchased the Essence Super Fine Eyeliner pen on a whim , I have been using my Maybelline Masterclass liquid eyeliner for months now and it just started to dry up – so I needed a new eyeliner urgently.
I have used Essence Liquid eyeliner before, but it just didn’t work that well for me. I thought I would give a different Essence Liquid eyeliner to try and she how it fairs to the previous one I used. The tip is extremely fine, which makes it easy to create really thin cat eyes – which is great! The colour payoff is also really pigmented , this eyeliner is quite black and I don’t have to reapply to get it to the intense black liner I really like. I always find that when I have to go back in and go over the line I just made it totally messes up the look. I am no Picasso when it comes to creating a winged eye so I need a good eyeliner that makes it easy to control much like my beloved Maybelline Masterclass eyeliner.
The only negative thing about this eyeliner is that I find the tip become tacky and it doesn’t create that thin liner anymore after weeks of use – I need my eyeliner to never loose shape and always perform. I also found that it wasn’t as long lasting as I hoped it would be normal my Maybeline one lasts all day the Essence one faded by the time I got home – not in a way that’s really noticeable though. I found that this eyeliner also doesn’t crumbled and flake at all!
For the price, I guess I can’t expect too much from this eyeliner – for an everyday look this eyeliner does fair good.
