Essence Cosmetics Longlasting Lipstick

(L to R) Dare To Be Nude, Wear Berries!, On The Catwalk

Sometimes makeup is very expensive so it’s important to supplement your luxury products with great drugstore finds. I came  across Essence Cosmetics Long Lasting Lipstick which is a brand sold at Walgreens locations nationwide. The brand is affordable priced, with makeup ranging from $0.99 – $4.99.

I decided to try their long-lasting lipstick which is available in 10 shades. I’m reviewing three of the most popular shades out of their collection. The lipstick has a nice pigment to it but not overly saturated. I found that the color was a close match to what it looks like in the tube. The color is buildable if you want a deeper shade but I found that two coats looked great!

(L to R) On The Catwalk, Dare To Be Nude, Wear Berries!

These Essence Cosmetics lipsticks have a light feel to them. They have a creamy texture to them but they’re not thick. As I mentioned the colors can appear sheer when first applied so if you’re looking for a lightweight lipstick then this is a great choice. The shades are beautiful and for $2.99 a tube you can’t go wrong with that!

Have you tried any makeup from Essence Cosmetics?

Review: DHC Kakonjuka Cream

DHC Kakonjuka Cream is a daily moisturizer with exotic ingredients like maitake mushroom, rishi mushroom and licorice. Normally I stay away from creamy moisturizers since I have oily skin. However I found the list of botanical ingredients intriguing. Reishi mushrooms have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and even anti-cancer properties. Maitake mushrooms protect, moisturize, and strengthen skin. This [...read more...]
