We Review: Essence Liquid Eyeliner in Black

If eyes are the doorway to soul, eyeliner is the doorstep. Today I discuss an eyeliner from Essence that you might wanna have cross one day.

Essnce Liquid Eyeliner comes in a slightly chubby yet sleek plastic black and silver tube accordingly. Its tip is what I loved the most; unlike usual eyeliners it is not a brush rather a foam/sponge like applicator which makes application done in a jiffy.

Applying a liquid eyeliner can be tough or smooth simultaneously. Where a pencil or gel eyeliners give you more control, liquid eyeliners are more intense and are a lot quicker.

What makes Essence liquid eyeliner favorable, is its really intense pigmentation, deep and bold color, as well as easy application.

The swatch below can show how very blackest black it can be. It is neither extremely matte or glossy, rather just the right way that is desired for a usual day or a special one.
The applicator is hands down a great one. Its foam like material that soaks loads of liquid in and perfectly chiseled tip just glides around the eye lash perfectly or would a best wing.  For someone like me who always had trouble with liquid eyeliner cuz of the 'brush' tip, this is just another mark. This kinda is called flock tip I have heard but whatever you name it, I call it success.

Applicator tip
Though it is not a water proof eyeliner but to my relief it stayed for a good long time. It is absolutely a matter of ease to take it off with any makeup remover or just water would do. No trouble here.

I usually apply it very scarcely; being very pigmented and the tip being more of a soaker than just a tip, a one sweep goes goes over the eye easily. I even have to wipe off extra liquid when i am focusing on creating a thin line. Although I usually use it for dramatic and intense eye looks. Not being waterproof I wont recommend it for lower lashline or waterline.

  • Eyeliner is deeply pigmented and is blackest black.
  • Sponge applicator is a total hit; carries ample liquid and draws thick or thin line with ease.
  • It would dry super quickly and would stay on for a long time.
  • No pulling tugging required,easily comes off with water.
  • As it is not waterproof so is not recommended for lash line. 
  • you might have to wipe the tip off if you require lest it absorbs more than needed.
  • I would also avoid rubbing intentionally, otherwise it is completely smudge proof.
  • I guess it costs about USD 3-5, and is randomly available so no worries there.
  • I reckon another waterproof formula is also available, would try getting my hands on that.

So that was it on an eye liner that's totally worth it.
