Product Review: Essence Stays No Matter What 24h Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

Sunday, December 15, 2013

     Hello, Happy Sunday to all! I'm back with another review. I miss sharing product reviews and I know I owe you a lot. So for today, I'll be sharing a review of another eyeliner that was sent to me by Essence Philippines months ago. It's actually my prize from their Facebook fan page contest. I was very lucky that day because I'm the last sharer of the contest photo then I was tagged by my sister that I won two products from them Essence Stays No Matter What 24h Waterproof Eyeliner Pen and Essence All About Curl Mascara that I'll be reviewing on my next post. 

     If you're a long time reader of this blog, I've shared my love-hate relationship with eyeliner pens. The first eyeliner pen that I've tried was ELF and that eyeliner pen gave me a very horrible experience. If you want to read my review click HERE. Another eyeliner pen was from a local brand and I'm happy that it gave me positive results. So now here's another eyeliner pen that I think was one of the best that I've tried so far. I have a not so oily lids that's why I don't use eye primer when applying this eyeliner. If you want to know my thoughts about this product click CONTINUE READING to find out!

What I like:
  • Simple packaging.
  • Affordable.
  • The pen tip is not dry and the shape is great for beginners to practice thin and thick lines.
  • Glides easily and smoothly.
  • It didn't tug my eye area while using it on my upper lash line.
  • The color pay off is great- I can say it's really pigmented.
  • Dries quickly after lining my eyes.
  • Easy to remove using my facial wipes.
  • No raccoon eyes.
What I don't like:
  • Not that water-proof enough because after three hours I can see that it smudges on my  upper eyelids.
  • It's not matte which I prefer by the way.
  • No batch, manufacturing and expiry date printed on the package.
Will I repurchase? Yes. It's a nice eyeliner pen for everyday use.

     I give this a 4.5/5 rating.  I use this eyeliner pen alternately with an eyeliner pencil. If you want to achieve bold lines then I highly recommend this product. If you have oily lids, prepped it with an eye primer prior to application. 

     That's all for now! What's your favorite eyeliner pen? Thanks for sharing.

Good Times!~


  1. maybe this eyeliner is good to me, i wanna try this,. :-)

  2. Try San San's eyeliner pen. It lasts all day (like more than 12 hours) even without priming. Of course, you shouldn't rub your eyes or anything.

  3. This is much better for ladies on the go as it lasts longer.

  4. wow! this looks nice :) super catchy nung phrase sa pencil. hihihi.. :D

  5. It's cool to learn about how useful this eyeliner is. If I am to buy one, I will choose this brand. I am interested to it's being waterproof

  6. It sounds like an awesome liner, and the price can't be beat! Hmmm, my favourites would have to be Kate Super Sharp Liner and Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner. They are the only ones that do not budge from my oily lids...

  7. Sayang, I would love to try this out but I have super oily lids.. >.< Even liquid eyeliners don't stay put on my upper lids! My lil sis might like this though. Lucky her di masyado maarte ang eyelids nya! XD

  8. wow you are a beauty. Thanks for this great review. I am always looking for a great black eye liner, and one that is easy to apply. I also love that this one will stay on and stay in place. Thanks for sharing

  9. @Sheryl An Mungcal- Yes, for me this is a good eyeliner. hope you can try this too :)

    @Aviva- hello dear, I already tried San san and I also love it. I reviewed it already. I'm planning to buy that again pag naubos yung mga eyeliners ko, medyo madami pa kasi.

    @Franc Ramon- yes, definitely!

    @Rhea Bue- Yup, when I received this nga napa nasabi ako ng "di nga?"

    @Carlo Sykes- Hello there! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Yup, being water-proof is a must for eyeliners nowadays.

    @andrew baler- thanks, hope she'll like it.

    @Bijin Blair- Hello, nice pick of eyeliners! If I have to try another eyeliner and from the high end, then I'll consider your suggestions. I know Kate and Dolly wink too :)

    @Sumi Go- hello sis! Sayang nga, pag oily siguro ang lids baka super maging panda eyes ka kasi pigmented yung product.

    @Renee King- your welcome and thanks dear. Hope you can try this too :)
