Lip liners usually help to define and accentuate the lip colour. When outlining the lips properly you could get a banging lip colour! Lip colours can also be used to achieve the ombre lip look which in my opinion is quite stunning! Some even use the lipliner as the main colour! Take me for example I love using lip liners as the main colour because they are long lasting! Meaning that my criteria for a lip liner are:
- It should be long lasting!
- It should not be messy
So, I am here today to talk about the Essence Long Lasting Lip Liners. I have these in three different shades.
These lipliners are quite long lasting I must say in that department I must give them props but also this is provided I don’t eat too much! I realized that if I am particularly stuffing my face on that day a couple of hours is enough but if I eat properly they usually last for just over half a day.
I also realized that they are quite different when it comes to texture. I will go into details when discussing each shade
01 Ready for Red
This is a bright red! It is absolutely stunning and popping and is perfect for that daring night look! I like to complement this shade with a gold eye look and it goes perfectly with the reverse smokey eye look on this post and this video please check them out. The one thing that I dislike about this shade is that it smudges and to the teeth nogal! I hate having to deal with that. But other than that we are good!
03 Yummy berry
This is a light purpley shade! I picked up this shade purely because I love things. I have worn this look to work I think it is such a Wednesday shade! When you are half way through the week and you are feeling kinda sassy *giggles* actually it is perfect for those days when you are feeling sassy period. It is quite a fierce colour and I would complement it with a nude eye look, a would also give a silver Smokey or reverse Smokey eye a go with this shade.
10 Berry on my mind
This shade in my opinion is similar to 03 Yummy berry but it is a bit darker! This shade was made for my skin tone!!! I kid you not! Any way this shade for days when you feel like wearing a daring lip. I honestly expected it to be much darker than it applies on my lips but as I said, it goes with my complexion. I actually prefer this lip with very minimal eyeshadow if not no eyeshadow at all instead would just line my outer eye on the top and bottom and smoke out the bottom with a dark shadow or just have a cat eye! But If I do go for shade I would go with similar to the above for yummy berry.
I am still to physically create the complete looks for the yummy berry and berry on my mind so I will add the pics to this post as I do, I will record them for my YouTube Channel and I will also post to Instagram so be on the lookout for that
I think this bright pink is so cute! I wouldn’t mind getting my hands on it! I would wear it casually and I would complement it with a dirty nudey pink eye, a pink smokey/ reverse smokey eye (at this point you probably think I am obsessed with smokey eyes! I really am!) or any brown eye look.
Until Next time!
