Review || Essence Eye and Lip Liners

Hey beauties!
Who hasn't heard of Essence before? Because, oh boy, are you missing out big time or what! The products are available to buy at Wilko's in UK, I'm not too sure about other countries but I bet you can buy the products somewhere online. I adore their products. They are very good quality and very affordable! I would say I prefer this brand to MUA by far.
l-r we have three double sided kajal pencils in 15 Soul&Mate, 14 Toffee&Sweets, 01 Black&White. And t-b three lipliners in 12 Wish me a Rose, 05 Soft Berry, 07 Cute Pink.
The kajal pencils are very soft in touch and the application is very easy as they glide on along the eyelid or waterline. As you can see I have used a lot of the white half as I use it on my waterline to make my eyes look slightly bigger, not like they need to look nay bigger haha! I use the black pencil for my upper waterline and a bit along the lash line for the feline effect. I've only used the other two pencils once or twice to try out but I'm sure I'll be using them more often this Spring/Summer as they would look great with a tan.
Here are the pencils swatched on my arm, as you can see they are very pigmented and lovely colours which will suit any skin tone, even the pale me!
Those lipliners are my all time favourites and I use them nearly every day - obviously one at a time. My favourite has to be Soft Berry (middle) as I love a dark outline with my MAC Brave lipstick. It makes my lips not only look fuller but also more stylish and ombre.
Here are swatches of the liners on my arm. As you can see they are very pigmented and soft in touch. I would say these are a definite 10/10 not only for the price but also for the amazing quality of the product.

Have you tried any of the Essence pencils? Which ones are your favourite?

Lots of love,

Hello Fabulous!
I'm so naughty, haven't been posting much lately AGAIN!
I've just been so busy with college, seeing as I decided to choose different subjects to what I did last year so now I have to catch up with all the work, boohoo! :(
I will try and post as much as possible now, I realised that blogging also takes time as much as revision does -_-
Well, today I have made a collage of my new purchases, there's not a lot because for some odd reason my silly phone won't let me send pics to my laptop :S, so I will include the rest of the pics in another post via my phone. Hope this month at school/college/uni has gone as fast as mine has! There's just so much work to do nowadays, and I always finish doing my hw and revision around 7-8 so I barely have any time for myself therefore less time for blogging :(
Anyway, these are my new purchases:
Creepers, fur coat, tartan socks, books, shloer, American goodies, and some new DVD's.
I have bought many more things since then so watch out for my next post!
Mwahh :*
