Review: Essence’s lipsticks

Dear Glamifys,

I have been using Essence’s lipsticks for quite awhile now and absolutely loving it!

With prices that are about Sgd 4-5 per lipstick, you definitely can’t go wrong with their lip colors.

About 2 months ago, I purchased 3 lipsticks. 2 from the regular collection and 1 from the home sweet home collection.

40 look at me – such a pretty nude with tiny specks of glitter. It has a little bit of color so that it does not wash your lips out. The glitter is also comfortable on the lips and does not flake off or feel dry

59 funky funky – sheer lavender with glitter. The color looks scary in the tube as it is dark lavender. However, when applied, it glides on smoothly and darkens your lips a tad bit giving it more dimension.

02 berry me home – gorgeous red. For the bold and beautiful. With its rich pigmentation, be sure to apply one light layer at a time and build it up for the desired coverage. It may bleed a little so be sure to use a lip pencil if you would like this to last the whole day.

Things to keep in mind:

1. The packaging could be improved. The lever to turn the lipstick up is extremely loose and there are tendencies of the top of your lipsticks being smudged inside the packaging

2. Take the lipstick around with you as they do need reapplying after meals.

Apart from that, what I like about the lipsticks are :

1. Affordability – prices are between sgd 4-6. Those who love to experiment with colors will be happy to find that you can build a whole collection at such a budget.

2. Quality – moisturizing, pigmented, comfortable to wear

3. Range – there are so many colors to suit your preference. From nudes to bright reds, essence carries a decent range of lipsticks and glosses

Be sure to stay tuned for more reviews :p
