Essence I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen* Review

I often find myself going through phases with my make up. Whether it's a technique, look or product type, I switch things up a fair bit. At the moment I'm going through a bit of a liquid eyeliner phase and, in doing so, I've rediscovered the Essence I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen. 

"The 'punk' of the I Love range! The new jumbo eyeliner pen with a felt-tip is ideal for girls who want to stand out - in a good way! Particularly easy to use, it's perfect for eyeliner newbies with slightly shaky hands. And, thanks to its practical size, it can rock the eyeliner look when you're on-the-go too!"
- Essence Media Kit

This eyeliner is super black, as I'm sure you can see from the photo above. I didn't swatch it, purely because I'm writing this just before bed and it's super pigmented but I'd be happy to add one tomorrow if you'd like to see it. I've previously used felt tip eyeliners that are quite poorly pigmented, meaning you need to go over a line numerous times but that's not the case with this. One application is all you need for a super defined line! 

My favourite thing about the Essence I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen* is the felt tip point! When I first received this I was completely freaked. It's soo big and I just didn't see how it could create a nice line. Somehow it does though, I promise. The point to the liner allows a really small and subtle line to be applied but, when tilted on the side, you can also get a thick and dramatic one. I tend to opt for something quite thing because I'm awful at matching up lines when I get creative.

Unlike the Essence Super Fine Eyeliner Pen (a great eyeliner with awful staying power), the Essence I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen* stays put! I apply this at 6am and find that the line is still perfect when I get home sometime at 5pm. I never set this with a powder because, well, I can't often be bothered so I can definitely attest to the fact that the staying power is due to the liner alone.

All in all, I'm super impressed with the Essence I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen*. I think it's a really fantastic felt tip eyeliner pen that allows the user to have excellent control of the line they're applying. This eyeliner is available from Priceline and Target stores for $4.25. Bargain!

Have you tried it? What do you think? Am I the only person that goes through make up 'phases'? What's your latest phase?

  1. I hear you on the makeup phase deal, all I want to have on my eyes right now is pencil liner. I'll have to test this baby out, I'm running out of my current liquid liner.

    1. Sometimes I go through phases where I can be bothered with eyeliner at all and other times I'm mad about it. Oh, to be a girl..
