Essence Gel Eye Pencil Waterproof in Cocoa Bean Review

What The Company Says?
The latest trend from asia: gel eyeliner in a pen-shape. Instead of in a tub, the soft, waterproof and long-lasting texture of the gel eye pencil waterproof comes in a retractable pen. velvety and highly-pigmented, these pens offer intensive eyeliner styles.

Price: Rs 259

My Experience:

Essence gel eye pencil comes in retractable pen form. Usually such eye pencils from other brands need to be sharpened regularly which is really cumbersome. However Essence is one step ahead of those brands. This gel pencil does not need to be sharpened and can be twisted and used. I loved its packaging and recommend all other brands like Faces and Colorbar to follow Essence in this regard.

Pigmentation: Essence gel eye pencil in cocoa bin is richly pigmented and one swipe was enough for intense pigmentation. I did not need to swipe it twice. I was surprised with this eye liner. It is way better than other liners available in the market.

Shade: Cocoa bin is a beautiful intense matte brown shade. It is perfect for college and office wear. People who are interested in trying some other shade than black for a change, surely do check this out. This shade is absolutely wearable and would suit all. Shade as such is not unique but I am really happy with its quality and price. If you are looking for a matte brown eye liner, do not miss this one.

Texture & Finish: Eye pencil has smooth texture it does not tug my eye lids even a bit. It is not so soft that it will be prone to breakage but it is smooth enough to glide on my eyes effortlessly. Its finish is completely matte.

Staying Power: Okies now coming to staying power, I do not know if you guys would believe me or not. This eye liner stayed on my eyes till I did not remove it with a makeup remover. I have never seen any eye liner as stubborn as this. This liner once sets, does not fade or smudge even a bit. Even in humid weather it stays put until I remove it. No amount of water or rubbing could fade the liner even a bit. It stayed fresh for the whole day. I cannot tell you guys how excited I am, I have never seen any liner from any brand to have such incredible staying power.

My Overall Recommendation: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED ( 100%). This is the best pencil liner available in market. It is quite affordable, won’t burn a hole in your pocket. It comes in retractable pen form, glides smoothly on eyes without tugging and with incredible staying power. I am a big fan of eye pencils from Faces and Colorbar. But to my utter surprise this liner has beaten them in all aspects.
