Drugstore News: essence lip products

Spring doesn’t only mean birds singing and flowers blooming… it also means, that essence changes the standard range: some products leave, new ones arrive … products like these three new lipsticks: the Glossy Stick «03 Luminous Rosewood», the Velvet Stick «01 Nude Hero» and the «Velvet Matt 07» lipstick.

«03 Luminous Rosewood» is a beautiful dark rosewood /«your lips but better» kind of shades, which suits almost everybody. Although the name suggests a glossy appearance, it only has a very subtle shine. It’s creamy and thanks to the crayon shape it’s easy to apply. The color lasts for about 2-3 hours and has a surprisingly good pigmentation.

The Velvet Matt lipstick «01 Nude Hero» (a light pink-nude) actually reminds me a lot about the Glossy Stick: It feels comfortable on the lips and is easy to apply. Compared it’s a little less creamy. The texture is more on the velvety side and higher pigmented. Therefore, it also lasts a little longer. Depending on what you eat and drink is stays on the lips for about 3-4 hours. I think the the Glossy Sticks and the Velvet Stick are great and can highly recommend to have a look at both!

In contrast I was a little disappointed about the «Velvet Matt 07» lipstick shade. Although the lipstick has a creamy formula, does the product not really melt into the lips. Additionally, the lipstick is unforgiving on dry patches and enhances the lip lines. I’m a huge fan of the essence «Longlasting Lipstick» range, but this Velvet Matt shade couldn’t convince me!

Have you already tried the new essence lip products? Which one(s) do you like best?
