Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in #16 'Coolest Chic' [Review]

Dear readers,

Lately I have been favouring coloured eye pencils - just to use them on the lower lash line. I love how coloured eyeliners make your eyes pop with minimal work, make-up wise.

One of the first coloured eye pencils that I got was this Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in #16 'Coolest Chic'. 

There is quite a range of colours in this line.

I forgot how much I paid for this but it was less than Euro 4.00 for sure [probably less than Euro 2.50 too!]. I tried looking for a seller who stocks this colour since I do know that Essence is not available worldwide - if you want you can check out this seller *here* - he/she has some Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencils in stock - and cheap too.

'Coolest Chic' is a gorgeous lilac-y colour with tiny shimmer particles to give that extra oomph or wow factor. This colour looks amazing with brown / darker eyes.

This eye pencil has a retractable mechanism - so you won't need to sharpen it - yey! I have also fully twisted the eyeliner out and back down a couple of times, and all works well - so no problems with the packaging. The labeling hasn't faded too.

It is quite soft and very easy to work with - it doesn't pull or tug at your eyes, on the opposite, this glides on really smooth. It is also soft enough that it allows you to blend it before it sets.

Once it sets, oh boy! It doesn't budge!

Can't believe that this costs so little, and performs so well. Thumbs up, will get the rest of the colours for sure.

Do you use coloured eye pencils? Which is your favourite colour/brand?




  1. Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil in Coolest Chic has amazing colour ;) The brand is available in my country but it is very limited. I could not find this range in my local drugstore, bummer :(

  2. it does have a great color, lovee it. I wish we have a complete range of essence in here.

  3. The colour of this is very pretty and pigmented! I will definitely have to check out these eyeliners and see which other colours they have. Thanks for the review!
