Swatched: Essence Long Lasting Eye Pencil

Here are some swatches of the Essence eye pencil in Almost Famous. I have been using this on my waterline. So far I have only used it by itself and I haven't found that it lasts a long time on my waterline alone. I will have to try setting it with powder to see if that helps. I really like the color though, it is a shimmery nude pearl color. It goes on pretty smooth but you have to make sure you don't roll it up very far. You don't want the tip showing much more than in the picture above or it will break off. When I first opened it, I rolled it up just a little further than the picture above and the tip broke right off as soon as I tried to apply it. I'm not sure if I just got a bad one or if they are all like this. All in all, not bad for $1.49 but not great either. If I can get it to stay longer on my waterline I will be much happier with this purchase.


  1. I like Essence a lot - it's cheap and quite good. Especially the nail polish...

  2. I swatched the nail polish I got on paper, it is much more opaque than I expected. Really pretty! I can't wait to use it. :)
