I also am an avid fan of Essence products. Their products are priced right and are excellant quality.
I must say that I am not a daily user of liquid eyeliner but when I need to glam up, i find it just the right product to do so.

I would not use the thick pen but it could serve useful in the future. I love the thin tip as it offers precision and not hard to draw a straight line.

and yes, this product is durable, it lasts...and lasts...and lasts...

for those who love liquid eyeliner, give this a try, you have nothing to lose...

I adore Essence products! Every single product I've tried of theirs has been wonderful and so so good, especially considering the price you pay.

I have always loved the liquid liner look, but no matter which types I've tried, I just haven't been able to get that smooth line with the flick at the end. It always looks bumpy or unevenly applied, and the flicks never look the same.

Problem solved once I bought the Essence 2 in 1 eyeliner pen.

It's incredibly easy to use and cleans up so easily if you do, by chance, make a little mistake - I simply took a cotton bud, dipped it in a bit of water and gently wiped. It's kind of like using a felt tip pen, so it was a lot less intimidating than your average liquid liner. I did find that sometimes toward the end of an application it didn't come out as smoothly but I got a solid black line each time I used it, provided I shook it well before use. I didn't find it watery or thin at all, in fact, I found it gave a better application than the tubs of gel eyeliner from Mac that I'd tried before - I often feel that they're a bit thick, so you have to keep dipping your brush into the tub to get a decent application, and yet it always looks wobbly.

The first time I applied the Essence 2 in 1 eyeliner pen, was first thing in the morning. I had a full day of work visiting clients in Durban, which is hot and humid and horrible. The eyeliner didn't budge at all, it stayed put long enough for me to even have dinner and drinks with friends after work!

I'll definitely purchase this product again. I don't use it everyday but it's lasted me about 3 months so far and I've had no problems with it at all.

I normally love Essence products so I figured for the price (R39.95) this would be another gem to add to my collection. But unfortunately this pen is a bit temperamental and will definitely not be placed on the repurchase pile.

The packaging is a black plastic container that has two ends with caps on. A thin side and a thick side. You can therefore create a precise look or a more dramatic look. The main issue I experienced with this eyeliner pen is that formula is too thin and watery - so you can't achieve a solid pitch black line. I was really hoping that I would love this eyeliner, but alas our love affair was short-lived. The first time I used it was when I got the best application - after that it almost felt like the liquid ran dry. I now have to push the tip on my hand to get some of the liquid to come out and then dab the tip in that before applying it onto my eyelid.

The thin side applies better than the thick side, which is too thick and creates a messier look in my opinion. This eyeliner doesn't really smudge, but 'wears' off before the day is over. It's also very easy to remove at night and comes off with one swipe of makeup remover. I would love this pen so much more if the formula was just a bit thicker and applied as a darker line cause the actual felt tip has a nice sturdiness and it glides nicely across your eyelid.
