Essence Lip Liners Swatches
L-R: Wish Me A Rose, Satin Mauve, Soft Berry, Cute Pink, Honey Berry, Femme Fatale
A year ago lip liners were quite the unknown territory for me. I didn’t think they do anything that special, so I was sticking to lipsticks and swiped them on bare lips. Fast forward to the present and I cannot be more addicted to these godsend pencils. They define the lips and make them appear fuller and plumper, they help you reshape & overdraw them if you fancy (cheating the system Kylie Jenner-style) or if that’s not your forte then you can just pop them underneath a lipstick and they will prevent it from bleeding and will prolong its wear time. Lovely, I know! So the moral of the story? I change my mind, which evidently is a good thing! And the product line that has converted me to a full-time lip liner wearer? Yep, you guessed it – the Essence Lip Liners (here).

I’ve banged on about these drugstore gems on multiple occasions on Twitter (find me here) but they deserve a tale on their own here on RosyChicc as well. So let’s gush about the formula for a minute, shall we? All the desired adjectives apply when it comes to the Essence lip liners and they simply rock. They feel really comfortable on and are extremely moisturizing and buttery, they hug every curve of the lips beautifully and glide on like charm. They feel silky soft and blend effortlessly and the best part is that unlike most lip liners on the market these bad boys don’t dry out the lips and don’t accentuate imperfections. Brilliant. The Essence lip liners hang around for about four hours if worn on their own and have gorgeous satin-y finish, which is simply to die for.

Essence offer nine lip liner shades in total, from which I have six but be sure that my collection will be complete in no time haha. Regardless of the shade you go for though, you are in for a treat; they are all gorgeous colors with beautiful pigmentation. And they go as follows: Wish Me A Rose is a lovely nude rosy pink, perfect for an everyday look, especially if paired with your favorite pinky nude lippy. Satin Mauve is my absolute favorite of the bunch and I’ve been sporting it on its own for months. I adore its medium mauve shade with purple undertones – it gives me the Kylie Jenner vibes and compliments my skin tone beautifully. Soft Berry is another shade I’m smitten by and its brownish nude with berry hues turn you into a retro bombshell on the spot and you can see it in action here. Cute Pink looks rather similar to Wish Me A Rose but it’s a touch darker, which I actually prefer. Honey Berry is a shade you need in your life if you are a fuchsia berry lipstick wearer and it looks bloomin’ marvelous paired with MAC Rebel (here). Last but not least we have Femme Fatale, which is a gorgeous classic red shade and it’s the perfect companion for a red lip lover. Beautiful!

Have you tried the Essence lip liners? Which if your favorite shade?

Lots of love,
Andrea

    Lip liners are new to me, as well. I need to get my hands on the shade Satin Mauve, it looks great for oh-so-famous Kyllie Jenner lips. :P

  15. These look really good! Now that Essence is available in Wilko stores, I'll have to try some more of their things including the lip liners. I'm still not convinced by liners so I need to give some more a go clearly!
