Favourite lipstick at the moment


Essence is one of my favourite affordable brands and each season that Essence launches new products, I am excited to try them.  I am always amazed in how good they are, in relation to their price.  
The Sheer & Shine lipsticks came out in fall 2015 and I purchased two of them, the ''Like A Princess'' #13 and ''BFF'' #03 (review here).
Like A Princess shade is definitely one of my favourites ever, it is a lovely light fuchsia pink that really suits my skin tone, not every fuchsia shade looks good on me almost every time that I try one, but this one looks lovely on my lips.



The scent of this lipstick is awesome! It is a combination of vanilla and candy kind of scent that I like so much and the feeling is great when you apply it on your lips.  When I brought this baby home and tried it on my lips, I wanted to smell it again, and again, and again, it is soo good and yummy!  It is very moisturising and so soft when applied.


This lipstick is not long lasting whatsoever, as soon as you eat or drink something, it will disappear. Pigmentation is medium, and this one is the most pigmented of all 13 shades that are available.  Some of the shades did not give a colour when I swatched them in the store, they only gave a light sheer colour and you couldn't recognise what shade it was, they all looked the same.

The packaging is nice and very elegant and each cap has a different colour depending on the shade of the lipstick, which makes it really easy to identify the lipstick from its cap when you don't have time to look for it and read the labels to find it.  Bonus!


I really love this lipstick and I will be using it until the end of the summer!

  3. I adore Essence products! They are always so affordable and the quality is usually really great for the price. :) I haven't tried their lipsticks before, but I really love the shade you picked - it's so bright and summery! Shame it's not long-lasting, but I guess it's still a fab product for the price. :)

  5. This is the second post I read about Essence Sheer lipsticks! I'm taking it as a sign that I need to purchase a couple to try. Must say the pigmentation is impressive for a sheer lipstick.

    1. It is definitely a sign! Just make sure you swatch them before buying them, some shades had no colour at all when I swatched them at the store and I was so disappointed.

  6. So nice to see someone else raving about these lipsticks! My favourite is All About Cupcake, I think I almost bought one of these the other day but must have put it down before I got to the checkout.
