These can't be beat for the price...In the late 90's, early 2000's I must have accumulated at least 50 MAC lip liners, and swore by them, they are still great, but for $3 or less on sale, Essence is a great option...Today I'm older and wiser, and while I still love high-end makeup, now I know when spending the extra $ is really necessary ..With liners from Essence, NYX and Rimmel, it's not necessary on liners anymore...I always stock up on Essence liners when Ulta has them BOGO half off...Definitely recommend.

I have perpetually flaky lips (wonderful, I know), no matter how much I moisturize or exfoliate. I had given up on lip liners as I'd always thought they would just accentuate the dryness and the ones I had tried had sadly confirmed this. But, as the make up addict I am, I decided it wouldn't hurt to try these, especially given the low price. I have In the Nude and it is the only nude lip liner I will EVER buy.
It's comfortable, has great pigmentation while still soft and good for layering under lipsticks. It suits my fair skin and doesn't make me look like a dried up ghost.
As long as they make this, I will buy it.

These are GREAT for a cheap lip liner! If you can find them in stock (Target) - grab 'em! I have them in "In the nude" and "soft berry" and they are beautiful colors, go on easily and last. Going to pick up Satin Mauve next. Only reason I docked a lippie is because I wish these were retractable vs. an actual pencil, but I guess for the cheaper price, it's worth it. Essence does have a retractable, but they are a dollar more.

I have femme fatal and satin mauve. I love these. Femme fatal would be nicely paired with mac ruby woo. They both look good together. The lead glides well and very pigmented. Satin mauve is a muted rose with natural undertone. I love it when I mix satin mauve & bobbi brown lip liner in brownie pink. Natural -nudes-mauve are just so trending now. These babies are so cheap! But they can be a bit drying. I'm resolute in buying affordable make up/ dupes now just to save money. And to this quest ,I discovered some really good quality drugstore brands at par with high end brands & work just as well. I highly recommend.
ps I'm off to buy other shades, honey bun and soft berry! I'm hooked!

Comparable to MAC lipliners and dirt cheap! Satin Mauve looks absolutely beautiful on the lip. I think it works well with my NC15 complexion as a slightly darker, but still very natural shade. It's not very creamy, but it is nicely pigmented and not rock-hard like other (more expensive) drugstore liners. For the price I really can't complain!

I just repurchased and yes, they are a harder than the old formula...but only at the start. After I applied them once, they softened and are pretty close to the old formula. They come in all the basic shades and they are darn good and dirt cheap. I was a M.A.C. girl for decades until I bought my first Essence lip liner.

When you have this product for this price.... I mean.
I just wish they would come out with more colours, but they're just very, very good.

I see there a lot of complaints about the new formula, and I`ve never tried it so I cannot compare, but I rather like these lip liners. I own Satin Mauve, Femme Fatale, Red Blush and Cute Pink. They`re dirt cheap, creamier than other drugstore products I`ve experimented with, and do a damn good job of lining. My lips are finicky and dry and prone to flaking, but I`m not afraid to wear these on their own with a helping of balm or gloss. I would definitely repurchase.

Formula has changed. They are now dry and difficult to apply. Sad.
