Ever since Essence Cosmetics released their longlasting lipsticks back in 2014 I've been hooked on their lip products. The quality is outstanding and unlike any other lipstick formula out there, I'm a big fan. This year Essence has launched yet another new lip addition to the collection: the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lispticks. They retail for €2.39 and have 8 different shades available. I purchased nr 2 Perfect Match and nr 8 It's a Statement. Let's have a look!
The packaging of the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks is identical to the Essence Sheer & Shine Lipsticks, except for the fact that the color of the packaging is matt. I admit that I wasn't that interested at first, I thought they were a part of the Sheer & Shine Lipstick collection so I didn't think much of the Matt Matt Matt ones. I'm familiar with the Sheer & Shine formulation and I like them but after purchasing 3 different shades I felt like I had enough.
When I hit the drugstore the other day I saw they had stocked up on almost every shade available, the testers hadn't been scooped up by makeup thieves yet, so I started swatching a couple of my go-to lipstick shades on my hand. My eyes widened in disbelief when I felt how smooth they were and how pigmented they appeared. They are nothing like the Sheer & Shine Lipsticks, they have an amazing, and yet again, unique, matte formula. I purchased 2 shades in the end, nr 2 Perfect Match is a gorgeous dark plum, and nr 8 is a dark brown, berry color.
The lipsticks apply just as smooth on my lips as they do when they are swatched. I love the formula, it's super comfortable and doesn't dry out the lips. The pigmentation is insane and the result is very longlasting, especially when you combine the lipsticks with a base, like a lipliner. I can't believe Essence Cosmetics has nailed it yet again with their new Matt Matt Matt lipsticks, I like these even more than the Longlasting Lipsticks.
