Essence - I Love Punk

I really love this eyeliner pen. It is in a khoki-pen form and it only comes in one colour - Black. It is perfect for an everyday subtle look or a more dramatic cat eye. It does fade after a few hours so you would need to reapply, but for about R50 it is amazing

As it happens, I received this as a gift from the lady who started this review and I will be eternally grateful. She said she knew it would be perfect for me because I am always colouring in my eyes.

She was right. I love it! It goes on smooth, is easy to hold up and I don't have to reapply it 17 times before it can look black. It is awesome and it has become my best friend of all my eyeliners and there are a lot of them, believe me.

I can't seem to find fault with this one and I would totally recommend it to everyone who loves a black cat eye and winged liner. The firm tip ensures that your wing doesn't look like it was drawn with a blunt crayon roll up.

Also, it's pretty cheap and that is always a plus when you're on a budget. Try it, I dare you!

Essence has always been my most affordable and trusted beauty brand since it launched in South Africa. I purchased this eyeliner way back when I was learning and experimenting with liquid and pen eyeliners.

Being a jumbo pen,it makes it easier to control the pen and get a perfect well defined line, I especially love the felt tip because it gives you full control, allows a liquid eyeliner look, without the mess or fuss.

I'd suggest using the pen with no eye shadow under to get a clear, pure blank line, else the eyeliner mixes a little with the shadow, giving you a "chalky" eyeliner look. Otherwise, this is the ultimate affordable eyeliner for the perfect look, especially if you're in for the dramatic look.

So say hello to smudge free, pure black and dramatic eyes for the fraction of the cost!

I love this liner. The only problem is on the first few tries my line came out too thing, but once I figured out how to use it ive been loving it.

Its really affordable. I cant live without it in my day to day make up bag.

I would recommend that every woman has this in her makeup kit.

Met this baby for the first time via a friend, had slept at her place and had left my "on the move make up kit" at home :(. So friend gives me this baby, and I was skeptic thinking that it's probably those smudging jumbo eyeliners. Boooy wasn't I in for a surprise.

I fell in love with this liner the firest time I started lining. It's neat, the tip is not too hard so it's good for the eye skin, it doesn't smudge, it's easy to fix, if you line the wrong way. Ridiculously affordable!!! Girls, it's a must for everyone, I bought it the day after Lol

While this eyeliner made applying very easy and quick, it dried out far too quickly for my liking.

I'll be honest, I was quite disappointed when I bought this eyeliner. I was never a huge liquid khoki eyeliner fan but I decided to put that behind me and try it.

If you have eye shadow on, you don't get a clear line, you get a faded gray smudged line. Thats not good if you are looking for the darker smokey eye effect. also once you do eventually get a nice clear black line it only last for about two hours and its faded again.

Only after using it on a few occasions did it start working nicely and the line became clearer on the eye and lasting longer.

It isn't a completely terrible product, but its could be improved.

The thing I love most about this is how easy it is to use. It's literally like a thin black marker for your eyes. You can go really big and bold, or opt for fine and precise with this pen. It also stays pretty well.
Not sure if it's waterproof though, but do be careful not to make mistakes, because it dries pretty fast.
Unfortunately, the one I bought's inner cap keeps falling out so I end up with black lines all over my hands from opening the lid, but that's no biggie. :)
