Possible DUPEs?! ELF natural matte lipstick vs Essence soft rose lipliner ..


I hope you're all okay and enjoying your day. 
I have a comparison post today of two products which can be possible dupes to each other.. 
but are they?? 

I am talking about 
ELF matte lip color in natural
Essence lip liner in soft rose

I initially purchased ELF's matte lip color in natural, loved it. 
Then I found out about Essence, and something that caught my eye was this Essence soft rose lipliner. 

Now this Essence lipliner costs like €1.03
whereas the 
ELF one costs £3.50.

Left to Right: Elf natural, Essence soft rose

Anyway here's what I think. 

They might seem like possible dupes when used seperately, 
A. the formula is different - ELF's is more creamy
B. packaging - ELF's a twist up lipstick
C. shade - ELF's is more pink
D. pigmentation - ELF's is more pigmented
 so that's about it.
Other than that, they're pretty similar, though.


I don't really recommend the Essence lip liner 
- a bit too drying, and the ELF one looks prettier on me.

Thanks for reading guys,
and take care :D

  1. I have 3 essence lipliners,it's true that they are litle bit dry but i love them because they stay long on lips ;D

    1. I agree! I don't really use lip liners much, and I only have 4, a red and nude by max factor, a nude-brown by Revlon and Cute Pink by Essence... I love the essence one, sometimes I even use it instead of a lipstick, as it's really pigmented, and if I wear lipbalm before applying it, or if I put a bit of gloss over it, it stays on for ages and looks lovely! :)
