Review and Swatches: Essence Longlasting Lipliners

I adore products for lips. What I adore even more is trying new products for lips and telling you, my readers, what I think about them. Today I’m going to share with you my opinion about new Essence Longlasting Lipliners. Essence is constantly improving the quality of their lip products. If I just mention their longlasting lipsticks, few of the shades are true gems. I love their old lipliners a lot as well, because creamy and soft products are my thing, but these new lipliners are even better. I got four shades and I’m seriously thinking about purchasing other five shades as well. 


There are 9 shades of longlasting lipliners and I own four: Yummy Berry, Lovely Frappuccino, A Girl’s Dream and Plum Cake. I like the packaging, which is in a color of each shade and it's very sturdy. Longlasting lipliners have a twist up system, so you don’t need to sharpen them, which I personally like a lot, but there’s one catch. I do not support if someone opens a product in the store, but by lipliners and other pencils I suggest you to do that. First thing is that some girls often swatch a product that’s for sale and it can happen that you’ll buy a product that’s already been used (been there, done that, never again). The other thing is that some liners are badly made and their point falls out. I know Sara has mentioned she found few samples like that in the store and also I managed to buy one that falls out from the packaging every time I try to use it. 


The formula of longlasting lipliners is amazing. It’s creamy and soft, but then again not so soft that it would go over the line of your lips. It’s very pleasant to be worn on lips and it doesn’t dry them out, which is an important characteristic for me who tends to have dry lips often. Because lipliners have thin tip they’re easy to apply and their pigmentation is amazing. They cover the surface with one swipe. Unfortunately they aren’t that longlasting on my lips. If I wear them alone they wear off in two to three hours, considering I drink a lot during this time. They do transfer on a glass or a cup. They look matte on lips and they fade from lips evenly. Their formula does emphasize dry parts on lips, so I suggest you to use a peeling and a lip balm before application if you have problems like that.  

Interesting information: Although on my lips they don’t last that long, they stained my skin when I swatch them. I couldn’t remove the stain even with micellar water, so I used soap and then it went off. 

I often wear them in a combination with Bourjois Velvet Rouge matte lipsticks. Now, my darlings, this is a winning combination. Together they last hours and hours despite drinking and eating. After some time the combination fades away a bit and my lips start to feel dry, so I just re-apply Bourjois lipstick then. Combinations I like to wear are Yummy Berry + Pink Pong, Lovely Frappucino or Plum Cake + Nude-ist and A Girl’s Dream + Frambourjoise (sometimes I also try other combinations). 


Yummy Berry
On one side this is the prettiest shade, but on other the most disappointing. I adore pink shades on lips, as you know, and this one is perfect for spring and summer days when we switch darker shades for brighter. Well, the problem by this one is that I expected it’ll be as dark as in the packaging, but it actually looks brighter on my lips. Don’t get me wrong, I do like the shade anyway, but the same shade as the packaging is would convince me even more. The other thing is that its pointer falls out. That makes the application very hard, because I’m trying to keep the pointer in the packaging while I’m applying this product.

Lovely Frappuccino
Everybody and their mother know already that this shade is a dupe for Mac’s Soar. It’s always great when you find a dupe for expensive cosmetics I guess. This is a gorgeous brownish nude shade that’s amazingly pigmented which makes it a noticeable nude. Well, despite being nude I don’t really like to combine it with bolder eyes, but rather more neutral looks.  

A Girl’s Dream
A Girl’s Dream is an interesting shade, it’s like a muted pinkish red shade. Well, on me it looks red. On one hand I don’t mind that it looks red on me because I like red shades, but on other I wish it would look more like in the packaging, because it’s really a special shade.

Plum Cake
Plum Cake is not really a “me”, but surprisingly it’s my favourite of all four shades. This is also a nude shade, just that it has a purple undertone. I love how it looks on me. It suits me much better than Lovely Frappuccino. I think any of these two shades is a perfect choice if you like Kylie Jenner lip style, which is very popular lately, because almost every Youtuber and many blogger have done tutorials for her look.

Essence lipliners contain 0,23 g and they cost 1,49 €. They are available at Müller stores. I personally like them better than Catrice longlasting lipliners, because they aren’t as fragile and drying on the lips. They are also cheaper, if we compare the weight. 0,23 g of a product isn’t much, but enough for me, since I never really manage to end up a lipliner or a lipstick (lip balms are exception). 

Have you tried Essence longlasting lipliners? How do you like them? Thank you for reading!

  1. Plum cake še pride meni :) Res me moti ko padajo ven. A lahko še vseeno normalno uporabljaš?

    1. Obrobiti ustnice še nekako gre, ker ga držim bolj dol, malce je problem, ko jih želim zapolniti, ker potem začne padati ven, ampak na koncu mi nekako uspe zapolniti ustnice, res pa ni najlažji za uporabo.

  2. Tudi mene zelo všečen proizvod. Praktično vsi odtenki so mi všeč, tako da bo treba počasi v akcijo in kupiti manjkajoče. :D

  3. Ne mi rečt da je Yummy Berry najslabši, samo tega sem dejansko razmišljala vzet :D Ampak sem čisto pričakovala, da bodo tudi ti ven padal tako kot od Catrice. Meni se zdi, da ti pa A Girl's Dream nenormalno paše, najbolj od vseh :)

    1. Kar se tiče formule, je super kot ostali. Mislila sem v smislu, da sem pričakovala, da bo malce temnejši, pa dobila sem slab primerek, ker mi ven pada. Ne vem, zakaj sama tega nisem pričakovala. Drugače pa proti formuli in nanosu nimam nič, tako da ga ti kar vzemi, edino preveri prej, če ne pada ven. :D

  7. Imam Yummy Berry in Peach Beauty, pa bom kupila še vse ostale odtenke. Mi pa te dva odtenka ne povdarjata suhih predelov, pa tudi zdržita mi 6+ ur :D razen če jem. Pa tudi ven mi ne padajo iz embalaže, niti pri Catrice :D

    1. Ti si pa res srečnica, meni samostojno ne zdržijo tako dolgo. :(
      Saj ne padajo vsi iz embalaže, ampak vmes pa so kaki taki primerki.
