Essence I love Nude Lipsticks Review & Swatches



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.


'01 Wearing Only a Smile' is definitely the least wearable lipstick shade of them all. My lips are too pigmented for a color like this. You can clearly see the product settling into the fine lines of my hand too. I never really liked the look of lipstick but purchased anyway in order to keep an open mind. Essence gave this one some kind of a lipbalmy texture probably to make up for the weird color it has but it's not working for me.


'02 Porcelain Doll' is a shade where I need to prep my lips with a lip liner first. Although not very visible in the picture, it does settle into fine lines but is pigmented enough to get that problem corrected with a base color. I love the coral undertone that this lipstick has. It's unlike any nude shade I've ever seen. Very pretty!


'03 Come Naturally' got my favorite stamp straight of the bat. It's a beautiful, plum, Kylie Jenner color and the pigmentation is real vivid and gorgeous. This is the kind of lipstick I wear on an everyday basis. I'm thinking of pairing it up with a lip gloss of the same trend edition called '06 Soft Almond'.


'04 It's Nude Time' almost seems like the wearable version of 'Wearing Only a Smile'. I like this one much more but the kind of nude is still not my cup of tea. I am tempted to play around with it though, I'm thinking I could combine it with other lipsticks, lipliners and then top it off with a nude lipgloss.


Formula wise 'Cool Nude' is just as awesome as all the others: smooth, pigmented and oh so comfortable, I can also see this lipstick fitting a lot of different skin tones. However! Is 'Cool Nude' a must have? Certainly not, '03 Come Naturally' from the same collection and '07 Natural Beauty' from the other collection are very similar shades. I don't mind having all three since these are the kind of colors I reach for daily but I can see how people wouldn't be interested in having many of the same color family in their collection.

Do you like to wear nude lipsticks? Which one is your favorite of this trend edition? Be sure to let me know!

  2. I love nude coloured lipstick for my everyday uses although I do find it difficult to find the ones matches skin tone. ;P I think my favourite lipstick from this line is '03 Come Naturally'!

    1. I had the same problem, then I found out darker nudes fit me very well. Try some nude lip liners, they are easier to work with than lipsticks :)

  6. Come naturally and cool nude top picks all the way sister! Do you have any coral-like suggestion for a vampy girl, I am a bit of the Lyv Tyler type I guess (if that helps). Kisses from Hamburg :) Yvonne
