Essence Hot Chocolate Lip Liner Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello beauties!

Last week a purchased quite a few makeup items and I also got Essence Hot Chocolate Lip Liner, a product known to me since I have it in a few different shades and I’ve been repurchasing them for years. I simply adore this lip liner’s formula and in my opinion it could easily win the 1st place as the best drugstore lip liner but I’m bold enough to say it can also rival with some of the best high-end lip liners.



Now at ULTA, Muller, Douglas, DM drugstores, Auchan and online,

Essence Hot Chocolate Lip Liner ($1.49 / 25.00 Lei for 1 g/ 0.035 oz) is a medium neutral chocolaty brown with neither warm or cold undertones and with a subtle satin finish. Some consider Hot Chocolate to have a matte finish but I wouldn’t go that far to describe it as it doesn’t look truly matte on the lips and in my opinion has a bit of satin to it, just a slight natural sheen that makes it look so natural.
