Essence Longlasting Lipstick - Colour Crush - Swatch and Review


Type of product: Lipstick
Brand: Essence
Name of product: longlasting lipstick, shade 08, 'Colour Crush'
Price: 19 kn
Rating: 5/10
Would I repurchase: Nope - not this particular shade, but this range of lipsticks is good.
Opinion: I've been going back and fourth with this one - I hate it, and then I love it. If I apply too much, the color is too intense (I look like a clown), and it emphasizes the dry parts of my lips. So what I do now is, I apply it, and then blot the excess, so the color isn't so intense. I use it when I want a pop of color on my lips, but I don't have a lot of time. This product glides over the lips - literally the easiest application ever. I just think this color is a bad choice for me. Essence is releasing three new lipsticks from this range (2 nudes and 1 hot pink), and they look amazing - I'll try them out for sure. Overall, I like where essence is going with these lipsticks - the packaging is a million times better than the other range, and overall the quality is brilliant, and the price is low. The product feels nice on the lips, however it is not longlasting - I get 3 hours out of it. The good thing is that you control the color payoff, so it can be either sheer-pink or hot-pink. To be quite honest, I think you can score better shades from this range.

  1. Ja sam bila euforicna oko ovih ruzeva, na kraju nisam uzela niti jedan, ali uvijek kada sam kod essence standa pogledam ih i swatcham, ova nijansa mi je bila medju favoritima i uporno odustajem od kupnje :/ a tako lijepo izgleda na swatchu na suncu :D

    1. nekim curama čak dobro stoji, na meni izgleda skroz kričavo (ako ne skinem većinu proizvoda)...inače i ja radim istu stvar, planirala sam uzeti više ovih ruževa, ali uvijek ih swatcham i odustajem - ali zato čekam ova 3 nova... ;)
