As you guys probably already know, I am quite a fan of Essence and Catrice Cosmetics and I have been getting some of their stuff to try! Previously I have tried Essence's Glossy Lipbalm which turned out to be both affordable and good! Thus, I was eager to try more of their items!
Recently I have been trying to move from liquid/gel eyeliner to pencil eyeliner because the latter tends to look more natural and also easier to apply. Thus when I spotted these eye pencil from Essence, I decided to try them immediately!

Essence's Kajal pencil is considered really cheap at only $2.50, and there is also a wide range of beautiful colors available.

In a way, it is not long lasting at all because any light touches will smudge the liner, which means that the liner will easily disappear through the day whenever we touch our eyes. Not recommended for you, unless you can find a way to wear this without it smudging.
However, I realize that because it smudges so easily, it is possible to use this as a eye shadow instead, just smudge a lot of this eyeliner onto the back of your hand, and apply using the tip of your finger! :)
As for Essence's longlasting eye pencil, the color is similarly lovely. The only difference between this and the teddy brown one is that the teddy one has a shimmer, whilst this one does not.
Thankfully, this one smudges a little less, and is generally sweat proof. No wonder Essence longlasting eye pencil is priced at $5.50. I like how the pen twists: no sharpening necessary here!
