ESPEE, according to my research, is a local Pakistani cosmetics brand that so far makes only glitter liquid eyeliners and nail paints. Lately, I have been feeling a little more daring with my eye-looks and have been inculcating different coloured eyeliners in my daily makeup routine. I love how just one single swipe of a coloured eyeliner transfers your neutral/simple eye makeup to a full on glam look. Another factor is the specs I’m forced to wear. If you’re nearsighted, your eyes will appear smaller with your glasses on – same is the case with me, and to combat this problem, I’ve started wearing coloured bright eyeliners in my waterline and replaced my matte black eyeliner with these glittery ones. More on that later, I’m planning a post dedicated specially to tips and tricks for eye-makeup with glasses.
So these Espee eyeliners come in five shades; silver, gold, green, blue and black. Among all five, I’ve picked three, silver, green and blue. Silver and green are true to its name but the blue transfers more as a gray-ish blue on me. All three liners have decent colour pay off and stays put until you touch/smudge them with your fingers. They’re not waterproof and wears off easily when in contact with water. If you want an intense statement type of eyeliner look, I’d strongly suggest to use a powder eyeshadow of the same colour as an eyeliner first and then apply any of these. The powder eyeshadow will serve as a base for your glitter eyeliner and will improve its intensity and wear-time.

A significant let down, however, of these Espee glitter eyeliners will be the scent. The smell like glue or gum. As a matter of fact, their texture is very similar to that liquid glue we used to have in our art-boxes back in school. It doesn’t bother me but if you can’t stand that kind of smell, I’d say stay away. Also, they don’t have any ingredient list or whatsoever mentioned on the packaging. Talking about myself, I was a bit reluctant before picking up these but heard so many good things about them on Pakistani Beauty Bloggers forum that I had to pick them. I’m so glad I took the plunge because they didn’t irritate my eyes and I’m so happy with their performance.
About the lasting power, they stay put on my oily eye-lids for a good 4-5 hours on their own. During this time, if I touch my eyes or something, the liner just peels off. I suggest, applying them over a powder eyeshadow or with your regular black eyeliner – just to add a bit drama.
Overall, I’m extremely happy with these. I’m planning to get the other two shades too since I love the ones I own. I ordered mine from Shopdaily.pk for Rs. 175 each. You can order these from there or you should be able to find Espee in the local stores in Pakistan as well.
- Extremely budget friendly.
- Stays put on the eyes for a decent timing.
- Free of any animal ingredients.
- Available in five lovely shades.
- Decent colour pay-off.
- Pointed tip eyeliner brush makes application very smooth.
Not So Amazing Points
- Doesn’t come with an ingredients list.
- The glue-like scent is a major turn-off
- The liner peels-off on toucing.
Overall, I’d rate ESPEE glitter eyeliner a 3.5/5. You can’t go wrong with these in this killer price.
Price: Rs. 175 each.
