Last year, the beauty world went mad when it discovered essence’s Soft Contouring Lip Liner, a £1 dupe to one of the industry’s most lauded liners.
Being compared to Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Pillow Talk’, the liner won rave reviews after users found it offered the same creamy formula and velvety matte finish to rival the high-end product.
The shade ‘Lost in Love’ was particularly lauded for its likeness to the cult favourite nude, providing a ‘your lips but better’ look without the luxury price point (£17). 
A highly pigmented pencil with a silky-smooth texture and a £16 saving, it’s no wonder beauty bloggers couldn’t stop talking about it!
“I wasn't expecting something that costs $2 to be so revolutionary. Every glowing review about essence's lip liner was spot-on. It strikes just the right balance between waxy and creamy, so it easily draws a clean line without skipping or pulling on my lips. And it stays on for hours. The shade is also a flawless match for my lips, which makes it perfect for overlining without looking obvious.”
I love this pencil so much, I buy it in bulk and keep one in every bag.”
Now, much to the delight of liner lovers everywhere, the budget beauty brand is relaunching the pout-perfecting pencil. The soft & precise lip liner is back with the same winning formula and jaw-droppingly low price-point but now comes in a range of 16 more sumptuous shades that will cost you…. £1 each.
The Soft & Precise Lip Pencil from essence is available now on
