Today I'm going to review the new Essence matt lip creams in the colours Silky red & Velvet rose. I had actually planned this review for over two weeks. But after one time use I decided that I needed to share this with the world. Yes, they're that good!
This first matt lip cream that I owned is in Silky red, I also wear it with my moulin rouge look. This matt lip cream is very pigmented, easy to apply && 24 hours long lasting. YES literally 24 hours! I applied it before I went to a party && when I came home I was to lazy to remove my make up. && when I woke up the next morning it was still on my lips. It also didn't leave any marks.
This lip colour is a little on the bold side, but I toned it down with some red lipgloss & lipbutter.
The matt lip cream is a little out drying though. My lips are still a little dry from the last time I wore this lip cream, which is like 3 days ago.
After I discovered how long wearing the Silky red lip cream was I decided to go back to the store and also buy Velvet rose. This is more of an old light pink lip cream.
[ Even though it doesn't really show up on camera. I don't know what was wrong with my camera but for some reason it had a lot of trouble photographing this colour.]
Sadly this colour does show the dryness of my lips, but I think this lip cream would be perfect underneed any pink lipgloss. It's the perfect pink base.
I did find this lip cream a little bit on the nude side, I expected it to be more pink than it eventually was but maybe my skintone is just to light for this colour.
The lip creams were each €1,95. Which I so CHEAP! for the quality.
They're deff a recommondation, since the colours are beautiful, they're long wear && cheap. But I wouldn't use these if you have extremely dry lips.
Have you already tried any of the items from Essence new line?
