I’m a fan of essence makeup!  Their products are affordable and generally pretty amazing!  They has recently released some fun new lip products. I was sent a few to test for my honest review.

essence ultra last instant colour lipstick ($4.99): This is a long-lasting lipstick with a  creamy texture.  It does last for a while, and leaves a stained lip after eating or drinking.  I like that it doesn’t dry out my lips. Available in 20 shades.

Here are swatches of the lipsticks:

From left to right: 16 Fancy Blush, 5 Un-Grey-Tful and 17 Bur-Berry.  Fancy Blush is my favorite and one I can see myself wearing a lot.  I usually wear lighter colors, but this will be nice for goring out.

essence butter sticks ($3.99): These are very pigmented and hydrating, even the matte ones!  The modern retractable stick is super convenient and easy to apply. Available in 5 glossy love & 5 matte love shades.

The first two are matte and the third is glossy. It’s hard to tell from my swatch, but the glossy one is shinier.  The shades are matte 2 Hot Cocoa, matte 5 Betty Gold and glossy 4 Dark Syrup.  Dark Syrup is really the only wearable color for me, but I would wear the matte one in a different shade. These are all really hydrating and easy to apply.  I find they cover well, too!  Probably my favorite of all three products!

essence vibrant/metal shock lip paint ($4.49): Bright and metallic lips are so popular right now! These claim that one swipe gives an instant high color impact with a semi-matte finish.  Available in 6 vibrant and 6 metallic shocking shades.

Left to right are vibrant in 3 Red Viper, metallic in 5 Arsenic and 3 Lilly of the Valley.

These are probably my least favorite of the products.  They are sheer and need a few coats to build up.  I’m also not the biggest fan of drying liquid lipsticks.

Have you tried any of the essence lippies?  Which ones are your faves?
