Several weeks ago, Essence released an autumn range and I showed you what I picked out here. As a fan of their Longlasting Lipsticks (read more here), I decided to try the new Sheer & Shine Lipsticks.
I got two shades, 07 Sprakling Miracle which is a soft berry shade and 10 Glamour Queen, a light brown colour with a bit of mauve. They can look pretty scary in the bullet but as the name would suggest, they are very sheer and feel like tinted lip balms.
I love the colours, they look quite natural and just give life to the face but I happened to pick two of the shimmery shades and that’s probably what I dislike about these lipsticks. They are just way too glittery for my taste. The lasting power is the usual for such type of lip products, about 1-2 hours.
These lipsticks feel very comfortable on the lips, the texture is really soft and lightweight. I’m sure I’ll be wearing them a lot, as they are pretty easy to apply without a mirror, they’re affordable and you can just throw them in your bag but I think I’d be sticking to their Longlasting Lipsticks.
