[REVIEW] Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner Waterproof

Essence is one of those brands where their products can be a hit or a miss. I always try to read up reviews before I buy anything from the brand, the Essence Liquid Ink Eyeliner in Waterproof is one product that I should've read more on.

What Essence Say:
this is the must-have eyeliner! the liquid ink eyeliner waterproof with the special fine tip applicator makes applying an accurate, black line as easy as child's play for gorgeous eyes.

Let's Rant!
Let me start off by saying that there is nothing waterproof about this liquid eyeliner! This was a total miss for me as a waterproof liner. It smudges really bad if you're planning on wearing it all day on your upper lashline. If you have slightly hooded eyelids, this transfers onto the crease even after it's dried down. It doesn't flake off during the day or feel drying/tight on the eyelids. I was thinking to try it with a matte eyeshadow on top to set it, but with prolong wear even the shadow will transfer everywhere.

Initially when I was looking at liquid liners, I wanted to purchase the felt tip one but it was out of stock. This has a very flexible brush tip which is the only aspect that I like about the product. I've been getting away with wearing this for evening occasions since I know I will only be wearing makeup for a few hours so it doesn't smudge instantly. It has a slightly glossy finish. 

In the swatch, I waited about 10 minutes for the product to dry and I rubbed my finger over it slightly. This definitely won't last if you have oily or watery eyes.
