Essence Lip Liner 11 In the Nude-Review, Photos, Swatches

I could never find that basic nude shade in lip liners until I spotted this one at Just4girls. It's a good product with some limitations.

The Essence Lip Liner in no 11 In the Nude is that dreamy color for all girls who want to camouflage their lip contour lines . To begin with, the pencil is pretty slim and quite small if you compare it to other drugstore brand ones. The color is somewhere between beige and pink so it's gonna work for all skin tones. I love how creamy and pigmented it is. It glides on with ease and leaves a lot of color behind. You can either use is as a liner or fill in the lips with it. It smells like nothing so you don't have to worry about stingy fragrance. It lasts for a few hours and does not dry the lips if you wear it over chap stick. I blended it with the MUA Intense Kisses Lip Gloss in Sealed with a Kiss (read review) and it looked quite nice.

Now the bad part. The tip is "extremely" soft. When  it arrived in the package, the tip was bent and I literally had to straighten it with my finger and store it in the fridge. This baby is gona be all good if you refrigerate it, otherwise the tip will bent, which will make the application problematic. So that means, you can't carry it anywhere unless the temperate is good enough for it. It runs out very quickly, so you'll be needing another one very soon if you use it on a daily basis. Sharpening can be bothersome too.

The Essence Lip Liner comes in 7 shades and each pencil contains 1 gram of the product.
