I recently bought a make-up organizer to avoid rummaging through my drawers in the morning like a wild boar looking for a truffle. While organizing my lipsticks into this drawer I saw that I almost have the full collection of Essence Long Wear Lipsticks. And for a good reason!
Formula: The Essence Long Wear Lipsticks are so creamy and very easy to apply.
Pigmentation: All the shades as fabulously pigmented and opaque on the lips.
Long-Lasting? All the shades in the collection last very well, even the lighter-and nude colors, and are not drying at all.
My collection consists of:
- 01 Coral Calling
- 02 All you need is red
- 07 Natural Beauty
- 09 Wear Berries
- 10 Cotton Candy
- 11 Nude Love
I most often use “Coral Calling” and “Wear Berries”, both are awesome colors to use for work.
Price: Priced at R40 a pop, you can go wild choosing colors to your heart’s desire! Available at Clicks and Dischem.
Will I buy this product again? Yes! I have already replaced a few of the shades. I easily wear the Essence Long Wear Lipsticks 90% of the time as the colors are so wearable. For an inexpensive lipstick this product is remarkably good quality. The only criticism that I have is that the formula smells a little bit like a kindergarten crayon, but disappears soon after application (it might also have something to do with my extreme sense of smell….)
