We all know the struggle of a perfect winged liner. It is always difficult to get that liner on point, especially if you’re in a rush. But to our rescue, pops in eyeliners pens which provide precise application every single time. There are so many liners and some of them are not good enough while others work amazingly well. Today, I’m talking about the Essence Pen Eyeliner Review. for you.Read on to know if it is a hit or a miss!

Packaging & Appearance: The packaging of the product is pretty simple. It comes in a black pen body and has a pointed tip. I really like the shape of the tip as it is really easy to use.

My Experience: I saw this eyeliner pen while I was in UK. I was looking for a good eyeliner pen. So, I picked this up as it was not that expensive. When I first tried it at the store, I liked the pigmentation and the finish of this product but after about 3-4 uses it’s pigmentation decreased to another level.
I never left the eyeliner’s cap open or something, so there was no chance of it drying out. Then I checked some reviews for this eyeliner and most of them were negative. I legit regret spending even a pound on this eyeliner as it is literally of no use now.
Although, I really like the tip of the eyeliner and even it’s staying power is not an issue but when the pigmentation is not good, other qualities are just useless.
Staying Power: The staying power is 4-5 hours which is pretty decent. If you have oily lids , it might disappear in less time so keep that in mind.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is very bad. I like my liners to be intensely black but this is just opposite of that. The pigmentation is really sheer. I do not like it at all.
Finish: The finish of the liner is satin-matte. It dries quickly and doesn’t smudge.
Texture: The texture of the liner is very thin and runny.
A quick tip that I can suggest is reversing the tip of the eyeliner. Yes, it comes out like a sketch pen and you can reverse it easily. The other side will work good for another 3 to 5 usage. And you can continue this process to milk it as much as possible!
We ain’t wasting Rs. 299 lol or even 1 pound for that matter!
1. Staying power is good
2. Easy application
3. Easily available
1. Pigmentation is bad
2. Expensive for this type of performance
Rating: 1.5/5 just because of pigmentation.
Do I Recommend?
No, I do not recommend buying this eyeliner as there are so many other eyeliners available at affordable rate which perform better than this eyeliner.
Will I Repurchase?
Definitely not! I had such a pathetic experience with this eyeliner pen. I won’t ever purchase it again. It was just waste of money.
Overall Summary: I won’t suggest anyone to go for this liner. It was pure wastage of money. Although, the staying power and the application of the liner is decent but the pigmentation has it all destroyed. I really didn’t expect such performance from this liner.
