I've never bought anything from Essence. I suppose I've always thought that it's too cheap to be decent. Last week I decided to try it out and I bought 2 lipglosses.
I got the Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipglosses in 06 Soft Nude and 07 Silky Red. In the future I'd really like to pick up a few more from the vast collection.
06 Soft Nude is a very wearable colour for day-to-day. It's quite a sophisticated shade that I'm in love with.
The range is a matte shade but these lipglosses are far from drying. This colour is not very longlasting unlike Silky Red.
07 Silky Red is not as subtle but is a gorgeous red. It is applied very easily, as is 06. It's not a deep, vampy red, but a lighter almost orange shade that will make your teeth look spectacularly white.
The fact that they are almost opaque after one coat is quite a bonus. Although they do smell awful! I believe it's a caramel/ chocolate scent that I can't stand. Yuk!
If you have something that you want to see over the next few weeks please let me know. I'll try to squeeze some blogging in with my studying for Christmas tests ( or should I say: squeeze some studying in!). Until then!
