Essence Cosmetics surprised us with a very light, barbie pink shade. My first impression was that it was different from all the other longlasting lipstick shades; innocent, girly, almost like it belongs in the purse of a snow princess. Unfortunately there is a reason why I don't have an actual Lip Swatch in this post, because of my pigmented lips this shade looks horrendous on me. The formula lacks pigmentation, it's so sheer it settles immediately into fine lines. It reminds me of the nude shades '01 Wearing only a Smile' and '04 It's Nude Time' from the #ilovenude trend edition. They are just as sheer and just as unwearable.

I unexpectedly stopped smoking 2 years ago. I never actually planned to stop. I was 16 when I started, I think just out of pure curiosity. I was growing up, trying to find my place in the world, attempting to smoke away my worries. At 22 I was smoking close to 2 packs a day, one during the day and one at night when I would go out for drinks and parties.

The new Essence Longlasting Lipsticks are my absolute favorite lipsticks ever. They are pigmented, have an incredible comfortable formula, there are an amazing amount of shades to choose from and they are super affordable. I own every single one Essence has released so there's no way I was going to miss out on the #ilovenude trend edition. Lets get swatching.
