Packaging: This lip liner is in pencil form and looks like any other lip liner. It has a silver opaque cap which is firm and stays intact even while travelling. There is no sharpener provide for sharpening the liner so you need to use a separate one.
Color & Texture: The shade of this lip liner, as the name suggests, is mauve pink and is not too bright for the lips. It doesn’t give a contrast outline to my lips. It looks very natural on my lip line.
The texture is creamy and gives a satin soft finish on the lips.
My experience with Essence Lip Liner in Satin Mauve:
I have used this lip liner many times till date and very happy with the purchase. This lip liner tends to glide smoothly on my lip and lines them very naturally without much differentiating the lip lines from the face. It is not like my lips stand out by applying this lip liner, it is just that my natural lip lines appear perfectly defined and shaped so that my lipstick application turns out to be flawless and look good. I even wear this liner alone on my lips and it looks quite good on me.
This lip liner is creamy to apply and you won’t need much effort in applying it. Only thing is that if your lips are super dry or lack proper moisturization, then this lip liner won’t glide so smoothly on the dry lips. So, it is better to moisturize the lips fifteen minutes before the application of this liner.
The staying power of this lip liner is good as it stays put for good 2 hours without any meals. Its staying power is certainly affected by the hot & humid climatic conditions and it will stay for longer durations in comparatively cooler temperature conditions.
Removing this lip liner requires some efforts, especially when the lips are dry as it tends to leave stain marks on the lips. With a good lip makeup remover, it comes out completely in 1-2 cotton pads.
Overall, I am satisfied with the quality of this lip liner and the shade is a total hit for me at such a steal price
