Essence Longlasting Nude Lipsticks

Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday , hope you had a relaxing long weekend (or just enjoyed the public holiday yesterday if you weren't lucky enough to have Monday off off )

A few weeks ago when I popped into Deschem,  I saw these amazing nude lipsticks in the Essence stand. I swatched them in-store and decided to get one ( I was sick after all, that justifies a lipstick... ) and got my heart set on Wearing only a smile (The lightest one of the bunch.) I accidentally took a different one (Porcelain Doll ) and paid - I'll blame the flu meds ... But fell in love with Porcelain Doll instantly. I'm a huge fan of nude lips... So this was a winner. And nude lips goes with ANY make-up look . 

Then a week or two after that,  Essence sent me some Trend edition goodies to try out... And to my surprise... Wearing Only a Smile was included. I got a second colour too ... Come Naturally that's a darker nude , but still amazingly gorgeous.

Formula on these lipsticks are amazing ... These they go on smoothly and are VERY pigmented. I have quiet pigmented lips, and these lipsticks go on just as swatched. The formula isn't drying , almost moisturising . The colour lasts about 2/3 hours on me, but then again I don't wear long wear lipsticks, so this doesn't bother me, the colour and formula is a win in my books. 

So onto the colours swatches ...



1. Wearing Only A Smile :
This is a light almost pink -ish nude, super gorgeous . I love wearing this as an everyday lip colour. 

2. Porcelain Doll : 
This is a warmer nude colour, again, I do feel it pulls a little peachy on my skin tone, but I absolutely love this one . This is seriously the perfect nude lip for any occasion.

3. Come Naturally :
This is the darkest one in the collection, this is more a mauve nude but still gorgeous. Especially on darker skin tones. 

There are 2 more in the collection 04 It's Nude Time , a almost concealer like colour ( And on my list to get next ... ) and 05 Cool Nude - A darker brown nude . 

Again , these lipsticks are SUPER affordable, amazing quality , and let's be real .. You can never have too many nude lipsticks. 

Do you love nude lipsticks ? Which one of these are your favourite ??

  5. I love these, Essence lipsticks are my favourite at the moment. They have such a creamy formula and the pigmentation is so good.
