I’ve been very much into Essence Cosmetics for the past couple of months. They have affordable but good quality products, they don’t test on animals and can be found in many drugstores in Europe. Unfortunately, there aren’t any Essence counters in Norway but whenever I travel, I try to stock up on their goodies.
Today, I’m sharing with you my love for their Longlasting Lipsticks in the shades 06 Barely There! and 07 Natural Beauty. I also love their lipliners but it’s so hard to find the popural shades, it seems they’re sold out in minutes.
Well, these Longlasting Lipsticks don’t stay very long on the lips but they’re very creamy and comfortable to wear, they don’t dry out my lips and there are plenty of shades that are pretty pigmented – nudes, berries, corals, reds… I recently got a shade from their limited nude collection, as well but I haven’t tried it yet.
The neutral 06 Barely There! is on the brown side but it’s not too dark. It’s great if you’d like to look more polished and mature. I think it would be good on many skin tones without washing you out.
Maybe 07 Natural Beauty is the most popular of the bunch. It’s the perfect everyday shade, it’s a rosey one with mauve undertones and many people say it’s a dupe for MAC Syrup.
These lipsticks deserve your attention because of their creamy formula although they’re not going to stay on after lunch or a drink. I’d love to pick even more shades next time.
Have you tried any of these colours?
