My First Attempt at Eyeliner

Demishka Maharaj

This was the first time I bought an eyeliner as well as tried eyeliner and it was a beautiful product. I honestly cannot fault it, however, I have moved on to another eyeliner from the essence range called “Liquid ink” eyeliner which is waterproof and has a more precise brush plus its full-on liquid. However, on my lazy days I know I can still use the 2-in-1 eyeliner pen and still have great eyeliner with less effort.

When I first bought this product I was very happy with the results! So it’s a two in one eyeliner. The side with the thin eyeliner, similar to most eyeliners, was great to fill in my lids. While the other side with the thicker and slightly angled liner was good to create the perfect wing with! It was a beautiful black that dries to a matt finish, which I love. So basically the perfect product right? My only problem is that the pigment of the liner faded with time, later causing patchy lines which is really hard to work with. Started off great, but pigment faded with time for some reason.

Not a bad option

I recently went and bought myself an essence 2 in 1 eyeliner. What I like about this product is that you have two options. One side is a thick line and the other is a very fine line. I also like fact that it is not a pencil so you do not have to bother sharpening it and it is not a roll up stick so you do not have to worry about breaking it. It is almost like a fine liner pen for your eyes which is a really cool concept. It is super easy to use because it allows you to be consistent. The pencil has a liquid finish so it looks really slick once it is applied.

I only had two slight issues with this product. The first was that for some reason I found it very easy to smudge, almost as if the product did not dry completely. The second was that I found the product ran out very easily which was a bit of a pain. However, I still think it is a really good product because of how easy it is to use. I would still choose this pen over a brush application any day. I just think next time I use it, I will pat the line down with some eye shadow just to ensure it sticks extra well.

Budget Friendly Eyeliner

This is a good product if you are trying out the winged liner look. Its easy to grip and control for that perfect cat eye. My only suggestion is you need to make sure you work quickly as the tip dries out and if you have a darker skin tone, you might need two layers as its not too pigmented. Overall, a decent product if you don’t have time for gel or liquid liner.

A bit dissapointed

Sarah-jane Van Heerden

I love a good eyeliner pen because it just makes applying eyeliner to your top eye lid so much more easier. I still love the essence 2in1 eyeliner pen but was disappointed that it didn’t last long at all and left me with panda eyes. I do however have a very oily skin so it might work well with someone who has less of an oily skin. If there was a waterproof version I would definitely give that a try, I was impressed at how easily it applied but not so impressed that it didn’t last long.

Cat Eyes made easy

Absolutely love this product! It has a thicker side to create a very dramatic look as well as a very thin side for a more conservative look. Great product as it offers you two alternatives.
