I'm a big fan of the Essence Longlasting Lipsticks: they are pigmented, very comfortable on the lips and, at a price point of only €2.39, extremely affordable! Essence went for a matte finish this time, a berry red and a nude. I have way to many lipsticks but my collection just has to be complete!
These didn't turn out as matte as I expected them to be. I don't see a huge difference between these lipsticks and the regular lipsticks of this line. The none drying finish of these lippies is great though, I also love that they are pigmented, creamy and easy to apply.
I don't want to say I'm disappointed with what I bought but I did expect something more out of these. They are great lipsticks but I think the matte claim is kind of misleading. I will keep on purchasing the new shades however, I think this is a great line of lipsticks to experiment with for example when you're not really sure which kind of colors work for you, especially when you're on a budget.
