essence cosmetics Longlasting Lipstick is something I hadn’t tried until recently but now you can count me as a fan!
In fact, I haven’t tried very many essence products at all for some reason. I think probably mostly because I didn’t have an Ulta nearby me until recently. Anyway, now that I’ve tried some things I am excited because they have some great stuff and it’s inexpensive.
Longlasting Lipstick comes in 13 shades and in both a cream and matte formula. These are really lightweight lipsticks but they aren’t necessarily all sheer. They have a very nice moisturizing formula and feel super comfortable on. Like a lip balm more than a lipstick. I really like the packaging because the little band of color on the outside matches the exact lipstick shade. Also I love the “e” embossed on them, it just makes them seem higher-end.
Get The Look is a pale pink.
Nude Love is a pale nude.
Love Me is a light coral.
Wear Berries! is a medium berry/pink.
Adorable Matt! is an intense red.
The lighter shades such as Get The Look, Nude Love and Love Me settle a little bit into lip lines, but remember, these are super close-up photos so it’s not as noticeable from a normal distance. Despite that issue I really like Nude Love a lot. Wear Berries! And Adorable Mat! have a better formula and are more opaque.
I’m happy to have tried these out because I find them super comfortable to wear and they are very affordable. They do have a mild melon-esque scent and taste to them but nothing too overpowering for me. They last the normal amount of time on me which is a couple hours or so.
See any shades here you like?
