Essence came out with new lipsticks for their fall/winter makeup collection and I couldn't resist to haul a couple of my default lip shades: a nude, here '04 Hidden Secret', and a pink, '11 All About Cupcake'. They have 13 shades available, let's see what these two are all about and then move on from there because you know, are they really all sheer and shine?
When they first appeared on the Essence website I wasn't that excited, they look much nicer on display! The packaging is simple, cute and I like that the tube of the lipstick represents the lipstick shade. It's easy and catchy for the customer.
I really like these sheer and shinies, they are what I like to call 'the sweatpants' of makeup. When I want to look put together I wear the nude, when I want a nice, healthy flush I go for pink and when I want to go wild you ask? I mix the two haha. You can literally throw these in your purse and they will come in handy to either complement or touch up any makeup you're already rocking. I think they feel good, comfortable and they taste nice; a little on the sticky front but nothing annoying.
I must admit I was afraid they'd be too much like a tinted lip balm but I don't get that feeling with these at all, they're actual sheer lipsticks and I am loving the shades I purchased.
Q: Have you tried anything from Essence's new fall/winter makeup collection? Be sure to let me know, I don't want to miss out on anything!
