When I first saw these Liquid Lipsticks from Essence, I picked up the nude one in shade 03 Almost Real as I pretty much seem to need to add every nude lipstick to my lipstick collection (as with most girls I’m sure). Later I was sent 04 Show off! and 06 Make A Statement from the lovely ladies at Essence. So what are my thoughts?
While these are referred to as a liquid lipstick, I feel they are better described as a lipgloss, a rather pigmented lipgloss to be correct. While it has the colour coverage of a lipstick, it applies like a lipgloss.
The fluffy flock is soft and makes it easy to glide onto your lips and the colour seems to stay for most of the day. While Show Off! was a bit too bright for my liking, I preferred Make A Statement. In the photo below it doesn’t look like much of a difference but Make A Statement had a bit more of a “dusty” tone to it.
I think the packaging of these liquid lipsticks is super cute with the mixture of a lipgloss in a lipstick package.
Available for R47.95 from Clicks, there are 9 shades available (I just saw on the Essence site now that 3 darker shades were added).
Have you tried any of these liquid lipsticks from Essence before?
