Review and Swatches: Essence Ticket to Paradise Glossy Lipliners

Hi, girls! Today I have for you another post and this time is a review. Last week I bought 2 lipliners from Essence Ticket to Paradise collection and I have to share my thoughts with you, while this TE is still available.


My Treasure Island is a dark fuchsia shade and Sun Said Red is a burned orange shade. These lipliners are pretty sheer. When I first swatched them on my hand, I was like, they're not giving any color. But that was just a first layer, after that they give a bit more color. They have a creamy formula and are glossy, when they dry. When I have them on my lips, they gave me a bit drying feeling, so I use lip balm underneath. My Treasure Island is very easy to apply, but Sun Said Red doesn't go evenly on lips. I have to use few coats, that it looks nice. They waste very fast. For one wear I used a whole point and then I had to sharp them again. I didn't really test during the day, how long they last, becase they don't survive eating and drinking (not completely, in inner part of my lips they dissapear) and now, when it's hot, I drink like every 10 minutes. They transport on glass while drinking. But I did test My Treasure Island in the evening, before going to bed and it still looked nice after 2 hours. When I went to bed, I forgot to take it down and when I woke up in the morning, it was still there. It left a stain on my lips, that looked "like my lips just better". That stain didn't transport on glass and the thing, that surprised me, was, that it looked evenly on my lips, it didn't just stay around my lips. The stain was matt, not glossy anymore.


On these swatches on my hands I used 3 coats. Also for swatches on my lips I went more than once over my lips.

One pencil has 1,4 g of product and it costs 1,39 €. I do like My Treasure Island, it's a very nice color. But for orange one I'm still not sure, if I like it on me or not. Maybe I'll do a FOTD with it next week and then you can tell me, what do you think. I'm probably going to wear them alone, without lipstick or lipgloss over, because they're glossy.

Did you get anything from Essence Ticket to Paradise collection? What do you think about these 2 pencils, have your try them? Thank you for reading!
