Essence Lip liner in Satin Mauve

Hello everyone! I have heard so many people talk about how awesome the essence lip liners are and decided to try them out recently, and was really happy with the performance.  I picked up the shade Satin mauve which is a heavily brown based mauve.

The shade is pretty but not as warm as I hoped it would be. Satin mauve is a very cool toned shade, at least on my lips. The lip liner glides on effortlessly and feels really comfortable on the lips. I like to apply this on my lips and top it off with a lip balm for extra moisture.

The lip liner is really creamy despite being in the old style wooden pencil format. The lasting power is also  great and with a price tag of 2$ (I think that was how much I paid) this is a real gem at the drug store!

swatch time!

I might try out some of the other shades in this range. I already have my eyes on red blush which looks like a fun red to try! Although these are designed to be lip liners , I have been using this as a sort of matte lip color with some lip balm for long lasting moisture.

Overall, I find this a real steal! The only negative is that this is not the twist up kind so you have to sharpen them. I did see that the Essence has come out with a twist up version of lip liners which I will check out soon too!

Have you tried any of the Essence lip liners? What are your thoughts on them?

Until next time…ciao!

  1. I have 2 of the Essence lip liners – Satin Mauve & Red Blush. I love them both. I was impressed with how easy they go on. Staying power isn’t the greatest compared to other lip pencils I own, but I still like them a lot.
