For a rookie make up fan, it’s a good tester product

I’m only learning how to use make up now and it’s a good product.

Essence eyeliner

I can recommend this to someone who does not want to spend a ridiculous amount for something small I love the pen no need to sharpen and it’s smooth.

Essence Black Eyeliner

Although super affordable, this product left me disappointed. The eyeliner isn't very dark and needs to be built-up causing you to use a lot of product. I also find that it smudges easily and doesn't last long before wiping off or having the colour fade.

Extraa long lasting?

I recently purchased this product as I wasn't able to find the other essence waterproof liner that I use.
It was after a year that that eyeliner had finished.

The product is affordable and easy to use, however not as long lasting as I expected. Slight tearing from my eyes does smudge it.

It's easy to apply thankfully, the pen design does wonders.

Essence Eyeliner Pen

I purchased this product because I wanted to create precise and thin winged eyeliner looks. I have hooded eyes so using a brush and a gel pot created way too thick of a line. I also wanted a product with which I could tightline just above my lashes.'

Because I'm still experimenting with winged eyeliner looks I purchased the Essence pen because it is so affordable.

Pros:
Great for precise lines
Lasts long on the lid
Applicator tip is great and makes it easy to apply

Cons
Colour does fade
It smudges if you're not careful
Does tug the skin

I think this would be great for beginners but I'm not too impressed.

Lining Made Easy

I'm really used to my "Retractable Pencils", I've been using them since I started using makeup and they've been working great so why change right? ... wrong

The switch over to liquid liner happened a while back and i must say I've NEVER looked back.
liquid liner isn't everyone's "cup of tea" though, most women get intimidated a bit well with the whole winged eyeliner trend.

Behold - Essence Eyeliner PEN

It glides on like one of those felt tip pens from school, whats more its its precise and PERFECT for the winged liner look.
lasts like forever and might take a while to remove from your face depending how much you've put on.
Its super dark and is just a dream if you love really defined eyes like me.

I might have jumped on this bandwagon a bit late but this has become a staple in my bag now.


Available at all Clicks & Dischem Pharmacies

affordable and effective !

I love this felt tip eye liner pen to bits .I've used this everyday since I purchased it. In my experience it doesn't smudge, crease or fade.

The felt tip applicator makes its so easy to draw the perfect line .The color is rich so I don't need to go over the line once I make it .

Of all the budget friendly liners I've tried this is the best because not only is it cheap but also very long lasting ,I have to remove it myself at the end of the day.

I highly recommend this.

Not too impressed

I normally love Essence products, but this one let me down. The ink dried up too quickly, and the tip of the pen didn't last too well and became all tatty.

I found that the ink took a while to dry and if I was not careful, it smudged into the crease of my eye (not a good look!)

Pros:
- good price

Cons:
- ink dries up quickly
- smudges
- tip gets tatty

Not my true love

I wanted to love this, I really did! I am crazy for liquid eye liner pens as they make for easy application and tight lining comes naturally. I have explored many alternatives similar to this product but all of them are much the same. At first, the name is accurate and you get a superfine, smooth line which completes any look. But after a few uses, I find that the felt tip wears down and your fine line becomes an unattractive, jagged line. If you are a fan of wearing eyeshadow, especially cream, this is not the product for you. The felt tip gets messed up when applied over these popular products and although you may dodge this with the first few uses, you will definitely see the "dried-out" effect, shortly. This isn't the longest lasting product either, but I am yet to compare it to their latest range, "stays no matter what." I will give credit, where credit is due. This is a great product if you are new to liquid eyeliner and are wanting to practice before purchasing an expensive alternative. I love the convenience factor and the price is definitely something to brag about, being one of the cheapest on the market. If you don't really explore with eyeshadows and just want to tight line or add a little liner every now and then, I would recommend this product to you. But if you are like me, who likes to venture out and makes use of eyeshadows and eyeliner daily, then perhaps keep this in your handbag for the days that you want to touch up or just for the convenience of having it with you everyday and anywhere.

I wear winged eyeliner every day, so I was excited to try an affordable liquid liner for everyday use. I like the Essence pen, but it does tend to fade into my eyeshadow and so takes some reapplying to get it black. The shape of the felt tip is ideal for easy application, definitely recommend it for cat-eye virgins :)

An Amazing product! the pen like eyeliner is easy so easy to use compared to other eyeliners.
Makes doing the sexy cat/winged eye so very simple, no mess no fuss.
However it did seem a bit light once applied & i did have to re apply a few times to get the desired colour.
but other than that it's completely affordable not like the other products for which u pay more than R50! (thank you essence!!) :)

Essence Eyeliner Pen

This eyeliner pen by Essence is similar to a liquid liner in a pen form, as described by its name. On the packaging it says that this eyeliner pen provides a precise application, is colour intensive and extra longlasting, as well as being smudge proof.

As I’ve used Essence products before and liked it, I was quite excited to try this out, especially since it was sold at an affordable price of R39.99. As for the shape of the felt tip, it was quite easy to apply a precise line. However, the pigmentation of the liner does fade especially fast when you have eyeshadow on. It’s almost as if the shadow “soaks” up the liner and you end up with a very faint line. So I did not find it particularly long lasting at all.

I also found that after using the product for a period of time and the tip starts drying out, you need to shake the pen in order for the product to reach the tip again. This isn’t very convenient especially when you have to keep putting the lid back on, shaking it and continue applying your liner. If you don’t put the lid on and shake the pen, the liquid will end up everywhere around you (yes ladies, I did this and I don’t recommend it unless you want to look like a spotted leopard). So the product does not flow nicely into the felt tip after using the product for a period of time.

The advantage of this product is that this product can be easily removed with gentle eye makeup remover as it is not waterproof, which saves a lot of time and effort. It is also great for eye looks that require a bit of definition around the eyes but not a hard, precise line.

Essence Eyeliner pen

I've purchased this product last year for R34.99 at Clicks. In the beginning it was nice, applied smoothly but it was not opaque with just one layer. After a few months it started drying out and the liquid liner wasn't flowing as smoothly as before. Also the tip started to fray slightly. For the price I wouldn't say it was a complete waste but I had hope for it to last longer than 3 months. I did a bit of internet research and found a tip to make them last longer: You should store them upside down so that the liquid liner flows towards the felt tip of the liner pen. If your pen is starting to dry out a few sharp shakes should revive it for another application. I'm not going to repurchase this product but I will try other Essence liquid eyeliners.
