'Love Me', Essence Longlasting Lipstick - Swatch And Review

Meet my favorite lipstick from this range - it's a semi-sheer (gentle) bright pink lipstick. A great every-day product.
Type of product: Lipstick (creamy texture, semi-sheer colour)
Brand: essence
Product name: Longlasting Lipstick, no.13, 'Love Me'
Price: 20 kn (around 3 euro)
Where to purchase: Muller, DM, Kozmo
Rating: 8/10
Would I repurchase: If I lost it, I'd probably go back and get it. It's my go-to every day product.
My opinion: This product does have a smell/taste to it that I do not enjoy (tastes like soap). The strange chemical smell is not the most pleasant thing to sense, but you do get used to it. Despite the fact these lipsticks are advertised as long lasting, in reality they are not - if you drink and eat, they will be wiped off your lips, but I'd say they last me 2-3 hours on average. Application is a dream with all the lipsticks from this range - they simply glide over your lips. Also, you decide how much you want to put on - do you want to apply a thin layer or a thick one. I like this shade better than 'Colour Crush' - this one is not so intense. This shade is a light bright pink, so it's not a in-your-face pop of colour (but you still get color, it's not a nude shade). It's great for everyday and gives my lips a nice pink glow. The texture is not matte, it's more of a shiny lipstick, and it does not dry out my lips.
This product is for you if: If you need a lipstick that will give you bright rosy/pink lips, and is convenient to use in a hurry.
You should avoid this product if: If you're not into pink lips, or if you want a nude-rosy pink lipstick, because this shade can be a little bright-pink (depending on how much you apply).
Swatches: Swatches are below, I tried to get you some photos in the shade, some in the sun. The thing is, this product looks so different depending on how much of it you apply, and also what shade your lips are (because it's a little sheer).

This lipstick was added to the range this spring, so it wasn't available from the start. I've noticed this particular shade happens to be sold out in most stores I've looked into, so I guess some of you already have it. Do you like it? I'd love to hear your opinion. Anyways, thanks for stopping by, don't forget to follow me.

love, Jelena
