Delicate yet dramatic: Superfine Eyeliner Pen

Essence may be a budget beauty brand, they sure know how to produce a decent eyeliner. Their eyeliner pens are deep black, long lasting and all under two quid.

Knowing how much I love their other versions, I picked up the Superfine Eyeliner Pen a couple of months ago. Is it any good?Essence Superfine Eyeliner Pen

It most certainly is! This has an amazing fine tip that allows for delicate precision lining: perfect to draw that ultimate thin line in the inner corner of your eyes or a very thin line all over.

I forgot to swatch it when I bought it, so the swatches you see here are after several weeks of use. Pretty decent, although the fine tip does wear a little after longer use.

I also find the tip a little too fine and flexible to make a good wing, I prefer my normal eyeliner pen for that. I start off with this and finish the wing with a thicker pen for perfect lined eyes.

It claims to be extra long lasting, but this does transfer a little on my hooded eyes (so far, I haven’t found a liner that doesn’t).

I personally use my Urban Decay primer potion if I need this to look immaculate all day: no transfer, no smudging and it is rather difficult to remove at night.

Let’s be honest, at this price this is an amazing eyeliner that you just need to try. I will be buying several back ups soon.


Essence mag dan een budget beauty merk zijn, maar ze maken zeker goede eyeliners. De eyeliner pennen zijn diep zwart, lang houdend en lekker goedkoop.

Aangezien ik helemaal dol ben op de gewone eyeliner pen., kocht ik een paar maanden terug ook de Superfine Eyeliner Pen. Is het wat?

Dat is het zeker! De hele fijn punt maakt het makkelijk om een delicate en precies lijntje te trekken: helemaal top voor dat ultieme dunne lijntje in je binnenste ooghoek of een onopvallende dunne lijn langs je hele oog.

Ik was helemaal vergeten om deze te swatchen toen ik hem kocht, dus de streepjes hier zijn na enkele weken gebruik. Zeker heel goed, hoewel de fijne punt wel wat slijt na gebruik.

Ik vind de punt ook net te fijn en flexibel om een goede ‘wing’ mee te maken, ik gebruik daar liever een normale maat eyeliner pen voor. Ik begin met deze en wissel dan van potlood voor de perfect omlijnde ogen.

De eyeliner zou extra lang houdend moeten zijn, maar hij geeft een klein beetje af op mijn ooglid (ik heb nog nooit een eyeliner gevonden die dat niet doet met mijn overhangende oogleden).

Ik gebruik zelf de Urban Decay primer potion als ik wil dat mijn eyeliner de hele dag perfect blijft zitten: geen afgeven, geen vegen en het is zelfs lastig ‘s avonds lastig te verwijderen.

Laten we eerlijk zijn, voor deze prijs is dit een geweldige eyeliner die je gewoon moet proberen. Ik ga zelf binnenkort een aantal nieuwe halen.

    I didn’t like this one at all. Mine wasn’t dark, it was difficult to apply and it dried to a sticky finish. Maybe I had a bad batch. I do however love the Essence wand style liquid eyeliner.

      Really?! Must have been a bad batch or someone tested it before. The only downside I find is having to dig through the entire display to find an unused product: people just try them in the drugstore, so irritating!

        I’m hoping for a bad batch and not used *shudder*. Maybe I’ll buy another one and try again, especially since the price is so low.

          Be sure to have a good look at the tip in the store, you can usually tell.

        Essence is sold at Ulta here in the States. It’s not a huge amount but I think I can also order from Ulta’s website. They’re pretty low cost which is nice. πŸ™‚ xxx

    This sounds great! I love the idea of a super fine liquid line. If I’m using liquid I usually go for a more dramatic cat eye, but it would be nice to switch it up πŸ™‚ Also, FYI: Hourglass make a liquid liner that doesn’t transfer at all. It’s the best!

      I have found a really thin intense black line also looks great πŸ™‚ Though you are right, I tend to make it a bit more dramatic.
      Thanks for the tip! Will certainly check that out, there are some other hourglass goodies on my list.
