Seeing as how we rarely wear lipstick because they’re always inconvenient to put on when in a rush, we always reach for lip pencil. Although we thought that pencils dry up the lips and don’t look too good on them, we were wrong. Creamy, easy to apply, great shades, and matte texture. These two pencils from brand Essence have really delighted us. Price is less than 2$, and a product is perfect. About an year ago we bought the 11 in the nude shade, and from that moment on, we buy it again and again. We would describe it as a beautiful brown – beige nude shade and we looove it. It’s great for every day use. It’s creamy and it doesn’t smudge or spreads. The second pencil is 06 satin mauve shade, and in contrast to the first one, this is more of a dirty pink, and less of a brown color. We would say that this is one of the Kyle Jenner shades. It’s also perfectly creamy, it doesnt smudge or spread and it doesn’t dry up the lips. We could say that Essence can compete with much more expensive brands with their pencils. We will continue buying them, and hope that they never stop making them.
