I’ve only had this little puppy for around a week now, but I think it’s safe to say I’m kinda in love! Essence have released two shades in their new liquid lipstick range, the other is a nude and wasn’t in Penneys so I couldn’t get my hands on it…yet :p
First off, this liquid lipstick is like a lipgloss/lipstick hybrid. It has a glossy finish, but it is pretty darn pigmented.
We know Essence as a really budget friendly brand, that you’ll find in your local chemists and Penneys stores, but I really think the brand is upping their game and the products they are releasing of late would rival alot of the brands we gravitate towards everyday in Boots or Superdrug.
‘Show Off’ is is what I can only describe as a corally red colour.
I think it’s one of those shades that will suit a multitude of colourings and complexions and is pretty good at making the nashers look a bit brighter too which is always a nice bonus when it comes to picking a lip colour.
‘Show Off’ lasts really well on the lips too. Of course it has a lipgloss consistency so it won’t be staying on like your matte lip creams. However, it’s not sticky in texture, and it does wear off well, so you’re not left with creases of colour on your lips…cos that ain’t cute 🙂
If you don’t necessarily like the opacity of ‘Show Off’ it can be patted down on the lips and worn as a sheerer shade. It looks pretty gorge like that too!
Overall I am a huge fan of the Essence Liquid Lipsticks. So much so I think I need more in my life. So Essence, if you’re reading, bring out more shades pronto 🙂
‘Show Off’ will set you back €3.09, not bad at all right?
