♫ 林宥嘉 - 浪费
It's no surprise that I'm quite the Essence fan, ever since I discovered their products online and locally, not to mention their huge range of products and pocket-friendly pricing. After lamenting the lack of new collections in our local stores, I was glad to finally see them release the [not so new] Beauty Beats/Justin Bieber trend collection, which is from last year. (Note: I am not a Justin Bieber fan.)

Unfortunately, this eyeliner is NOT waterproof at all. A gentle swipe with water effectively smudged away half the line, while a slightly firmer rub more than removed it completely. How Justin Bieber fans are supposed to scream and cry at their idol while wearing this eyeliner without it making a mess on their face is beyond me. ಠ_ಠ
If you're looking to experiment with eyeliner, or have really really dry eyes/don't sweat at all, this could be okay, I guess. Both ends work well to give you different looks, from thin faint lines to thicker bold lines.
I am seriously kicking myself now for buying this eyeliner instead of the blusher. (-__-;) The blusher, which retails at RM 14.90, is 2 bucks cheaper and has more product, not to mention more value for money than this gimmicky, non-waterproof eyeliner. (¬_¬) Oh well, as far as lessons go, at least this is considered cheap at RM 16.90, ha!
