Essence gel liners

Wow, we have quite a easter weather here! It's like summer and I've been gardening :D

But back to makeup ;) I bought these three Essence gel liners from Germany. I like to use gel liners with MAC 210 brush and these from Essence were nice. My favorite is still MAC Fluidline, it's more expensive but worth every penny! If I compare Essence with MAC, Essence is softer, more fluid... I dipped my brush it to the jar and got far too much product. I've also had a problem with gel liners (except with MAC), they tend to dry out too quickly. Essence gel liners are so new so I have no idea how long these will stay in shape.

The price was around 3€ and the jar is made of glass. The colors were lovely (I LOVE the green/teal one) and these were relatively easy to apply. Lasted all day, no problem with that! So not bad, but still not MAC :D

Ostin Saksasta muutamia Essencen geelirajauksia, värit olivat niin herkulliset! Ihan ok:lta vaikuttavatkin, jos suosikkiini MACiin verrataan niin Essencet ovat pehmeämmät/ nestemäisemmät. Näin myös siveltimeen tuli usein liikaa geeliä... Ongelmana näissä geelirajauksissa on yleensä se, että kuivahtavat purkkiinsa liian nopeasti. Ainoastaan MAC Fluidlinejen kanssa tätä ongelmaa ei ole ollut (ovat todellakin kalliimman hintansa väärtit!), Essencestä ei toki vielä tietoa. 

Hinta oli edullinen, noin 3€, ja ovat lasipurkeissa. Värit ovat kyllä ihanat ja tuote suhteellisen helppokäyttöinen. Rajaus pysyi koko päivän. Eli kiva tuote, mutta ei MAC :D

  6. I've written up my review of this and I have to say that I LOVE!!! them! I haven't tried MAC's one but they are worth every cent! How much did you buy yours? Mine was $5.50 AUD so I'm pretty impressed by these. (I also dipped it in too much when I used it the first time. It seems not to have dried up even when you scrape it to the side of the jar so I think they will fare well :D)

  7. Wow, I'm definitely loving all 3 colours!
