Essence Lipstick nr 20 Get The Look Review



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.


Even though I'm a big lover of the Essence longlasting lipsticks, Get The Look doesn't do it for me. It has a tinted lip balm kinda formula that is very unflattering and not what I personally look for in a lipstick. 


Available at Kruidvat for 2.39

  2. This looks to me like a 'Barbie' lipstick. I saw it at the store and I would never get it for myself - it's a very unflattering color.

  3. Wow, I wonder how many lipsticks are there in this long lasting collection. We only have until number 12! *cry*

    1. Right now there are 20 but I would say that the best lipsticks are within the 12 you have available at your drugstore :) you have nothing to worry about! I rarely use any of those lipsticks that is above nr 10.
