Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral Review

Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral Review

I am not a lipliner person, frankly. But of recent I have been a “pick up lipliners spree”. I do not know where in my head did the chemical reacted to some other chemical in a wrong way, that I succumbed to lipliners, I shared it with you guys HERE. I used lipliners real sparsely before; I have always been a more of a lipstick person than even lipgloss. :P Today I’d be reviewing Essence Lipliner for you all.

My thoughts on the Essence lipliner in Nude Coral:
The Essence Lipliner was a debut from this brand in my stash, and when I went to their counter I felt like pouring down the whole rack into my cart (that’s how I feel when I am at any cosmetic counter). When I swatched it, I was extremely pleased by the texture, feel and pigmentation of the essence lip liner in Nude Coral. Further I ended up buying 2 more essence lip liner variants and some more stuff from Essence, check it out HERE. I will share the shades of the other 2 Essence lipliners with you all sometime soon.  Nude Coral, is a nice matte, natural, nude and creamy peachy-coral-pink color. 

Why should you BUY the Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral:
• The price is so tempting, I mean you can actually get 3 of the Essence lipliners at the price of one lip liner from any other brand be it. 
• The pencil is averagely sized; I mean it isn’t small in size, because it is priced low.
• The colors are gorgeous, there is an assortment of browns, mauves, pinks and corals, and there is only one dark red Essence Lipliner in the whole color array.  Although there are a few shades, but the Essence Lipliners are evenly distributed in all color shades. 
• The colors are highly wearable, there’s no ODD color in the collection. 
• The color Nude Coral is a nice peachy-coral-pink color, it got a hint of pink, but it is more on the peachy coral side.

a closer look at the color

• The colors are highly pigmented. I swatched all the shades of the Essence Lipliners and found them amazing.
• Pigmented lips can be easily hidden under one swipe on the Essence lipliner in Nude Coral.
• They are ultra creamy. It’s a pro as well as a con for me. Pro since they glides gorgeously on the lips.

Just sharpened

• The pencil is a typical wooden one, hence sharpening isn’t a problem and there is no major wastage of the product whilst sharpening.
• The Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral helps my lipstick to stay on for few more hours then regular. 
• When I wear it alone, without a lipstick or gloss or lip balm, it stays on for a satisfactory time.
• It doesn’t settle in the fine lines of the lips.
• The Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral is perfume free and tasteless.
• The Essence lip liner when worn alone, survive snacks and drinks, does fade with meals.
• They are creamy hence smooth and moisturizing. 
• It’s super matte.

How do I wear it?
I usually go ahead with wearing the Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral alone, for a matte film of color. Although it is a tad drying, it’s not OVERLY drying.  I top it with a clear gloss, or a corresponding gloss, or wear it beneath my coral lipsticks.  It’s great for medium to fair toned ladies, but it will look a tad pale or bright on the dusky or dark skin tones, but you always have options to wear it.

Why should you SKIP the Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral:
• It tends to get a tad dry if worn alone. 

this s how badly the tip gets melted :(

• The Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral is ultra creamy hence the tip gets melted as soon as it is used. It;s creaminess tends to get on my nerves at times, I end up using a lipliner brush for applying it if I have a lot of time for it. :(
• The staying power is satisfactory but not toooooo gooood kinds.
• The color assortment is meager. 
• Ingredients are not available anywhere. 

Final Verdict:
The Essence Lipliner in Nude Coral is a nice shade to have in the stash specially if you are a nude lip lover. Go ahead and get it. 
