Review: Essence Lipliner in 10 Femme Fatale


Heya Lovekins! Long time, no blog post... I know. What else is new? ;)

I've tried a lot of products these past few months but let me just start with this red lipliner, the Essence Lipliner in 10 Femme Fatale.

I have never been fond of using lipliners. I have always thought they are just a waste of money. When a lot of YouTube beauty gurus raved about Nichido Lip Pencil in Rosette, of course, I purchased one for myself primarily because of its current hype. And so far, it did its job. I liked it.

A few months ago, the department store here in SM City Clark provided new makeup brands to try out, one of which is Essence Cosmetics.

Essence is a European brand and according to its website, it is Europe's #1 cosmetics brand. I thought I'd try one or a couple of its products. So I got the Essence Stay Natural Concealer in Soft Nude and two lip liners - 07 Cute Pink and 10 Femme Fatale.

I'm going to review the Essence Lipliner in 10 Femme Fatale first just because that's what I have pictures of. ;)

Forgive the ruined tip. I don't have a decent sharpener. :D
Essence lipliners are basically just pencils. I would rather buy retractable ones because as you can see in my picture above, my sharpener practically ruined the tip of the lip pencil (I guess I new to buy a new sharpener, huh?) The color of the pencil matches the color of the lipliner as you also can see. It matches the color perfectly.




10 Femme Fatale is a bright and vibrant red color with blue-undertone. I love it because it makes my teeth appear whiter. You can use the lipliner on its own as it's very pigmented and creamy. However, it is super soft that applying it can be a problem. I'm not sure if it's just because of our country's humid weather but here is what happens everytime I use it.

Yup, they melt! The lipliners are fairly moisturizing but hey, I am used to lip pencils making crisp lip edges. These ones don't, so I just use them on their own. Here is what it looks like on my lips:




Not bad for a Php79.00 lipliner, I think. But after using these all up, I'd rather find new ones to try out. Other brands that is.

Essence Cosmetics are available at all SM Department Store branches nationwide.

Till next,
