It’s a time for another review. As you already know that essence gain a lot of interest of beauty lovers by its quality and budget friendly range. Today I will be reviewing Essence matt matt matt lipstick in shade 01 natural kiss. This range includes 8 matte shades from nudes to deep berry reds. Let’s get into it.
It comes with a shiny silver tube with clear frosty lid of a same lip shade where shade name tag pasted on the bottom of the tube like all other lipsticks. It comes with a click lid which is easy to open and close.
The shade 01 natural kiss is peachy pink shade. It is a perfect nude shade for everyday use. First of all let’s talk about its color pay off. As you can judge by the swatch that how pigmented is this by swatching once. You just need only one swipe to get the exact color. Formula is smooth, buttery and creamy which I really like. This is matte but doesn’t dry out my lips. It glides on lips smoothly without tugging as most of the matte formulas do and it is easy to remove as well . It stays on your lips without smudging. It is matte but keeps lips moisturized which is again a plus point for matte formula. It has a fruity gummy kind of a smell which fades off after sometime of application. This type of scent does not bother me so this is ok for me but if you are sensitive to these kind of scents then it may bother you.
It stays on lips for about 4 to 5 hours without getting patchy and yes it is important to tell you here that I do not wear lipsticks more than that. Only the thing which I do not like about this lipstick is that after few hours it gathered around the inner rim of lips and make a thin line/ layer which obviously can be set but this always bother me.
I suggest you to moisturise your lips before applying this as I always suggested you in earlier posts to do moisturise your lips before applying any matte lipstick as this is my habit( to apply lip balm before using lipstick) since long when I started using matte lipsticks.
I am too bad in remembering prices so it retails around 350 to 390 Pkr may be.
