As a teenager, I used to wear eyeliner on my waterline on an everyday basis. I hated the way my eyes looked without it. But it's been a few years since then, and now I love wearing eyeliner on my eyelids just above my lashes. Another way for wearing eyeliner that I've been really liking recently is applying them just under the waterline. I love using color for that, especially burgundy and green shades. I think it's super pretty and very Fall and Winter appropriate! When I saw these new eyeliners by Essence a while ago, I was really impressed with how the swatches stayed in my hand even when I tried to rub it off. So you can imagine I purchased two of them, and now I'll be sharing my thoughts on them!
Ms Money Penny is a shimmery champagne golden shade. It doesn't really have those chunks of glitter in it, but more of a velvety and shiny finish. This eyeliner is great for the waterline of for highlighting the inner-corners of your eyes.
Berry Merry is a dark purple/plum shade. Again, it doesn't have chunks of glitter in it, but a velvety finish. Berry Merry is more matte than Ms Money Penny, it has a semi-matte finish. This one if perfect for lining just under the waterline, close to the bottom-lashline. It would also look amazing as a regular eyeliner, or applied on the waterline. The quality of these eyeliners is super amazing. They're very creamy and soft, yet they stay in place perfectly, so they're definitely long-lasting! I think both of these shades are perfect for Fall/Winter and I'm super happy I bought these two!

I was really surprised by the quality of these eyeliners, considering how low-budget they actually are. The Essence Long Lasting eye pencils retail for €1,59 each (0,28g). They're available at kruidvat, in stores and online.
