Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil Bling Bling and Hot Chocolate

I Bought This

Popping in for a quick rave post!  I wish I had the energy to be more detailed, but we are busy with school stuff and spring colds.  However, the Essence Cosmetics Long Lasting Eye Pencils are something everyone needs!

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil Bling Bling and Hot Chocolate
Essence Cosmetics has several different types of eyeliners: sharp-enable pencils, markers and these beauties which are self advancing, no sharpener needed...my favorites!!

Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil Bling Bling and Hot Chocolate
The formula of the Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencils is soft and very easy to use.  They aren't dry feeling, nor do they tug or pull as you apply.  They feel amazing!  They very much reminded me of the texture and consistency of an Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil.

The two colors I bought were Hot Chocolate, a dark rich matte chocolate brown and Bling Bling, a shimmering golden copper.

Final Thoughts

These liners aren't just good for a budget brand, they are good period.  I used MAC Technakohl in Photograuve for years and honestly the texture and payoff of the Essence is just remarkably better...by a wide margin.  And you are paying $2.49 compared to $19.50.  I find these to be very long lasting.  They look essentially unchanged at the end of the day.  I get a little minor fading under the eye, but that's normal for me and no worse then any other eye liner I've used. Essence Cosmetics Long Lasting Eye Pencils are currently available in 8 shades.  I plan to go back and buy them all.

Where to buy: ULTA  or Fred Meyer, H-E-B
Price: $2.49 for .28 grams]
