Essence I ♥ Nude Lipstick And Lipgloss Collection

{Review} Essence I ♥ Nudes Lipstick_01I have mentioned it previous post about the Essence I ♥ Nude Eyeshadow Collection (which you can see here) that Essence launched a few other products too. This post will be all out the lips. Today’s review will be about Essence I ♥ Nude Lipstick And Lipgloss Collection.

Essence launched the Long lasting nudes lipstick and the Essence XXXL lipglosses. Now lets get right into talking about these lip products .

And here’s what I though… Firstly if you expected this to be a long lasting lipstick then I am afraid these are not the lipsticks for you. I was disappointing to find that they didn’t last long and they transferred on to everything I ate.I guess you have to take in to consideration the price of these for the price you are paying it’s a good enough lipstick. The texture is so smooth and glides on easily, I also found that they are quite moisturizing on the lips  – But make sure not to apply these on cracked and dried out lips it will only draw attention to them and make them more noticeable. My favoruite is come naturally it’s such a gorgeous brownish nude and will be perfect for Winter season.

Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss

Essence XXXL Nude Lipgloss (R38.95)

These consist of four soft shades.. Essence says” The subtle colour pigmentation creates a fresh look”

Shades in this collection:

Just Nude

Shy Beauty

Taste The Sweets

Soft Almond

I really like this lipgloss the shades are so pretty and they are such great nude shades. The application is smooth and the lipgloss application is not sticky at all, like I found some other lipglosses to be. The texture is also thick and lasts quite some time on your lips. These are great by themselves our over a matching lipstick to create a glossy lip.

    Oooh the first shade looks so gorgeous however would’nt complement my pale skin! Its a shame they don’t stay on but I guess if you top them up often they’re lovely still. xxxx

    I’m yet to try out Essence products. I really like the shades you have here but such a shame the lipsticks don’t last that well x

      Yeah I think the lighter shades just don’t hold up – which really sucks

    The lipsticks are gorgeous! I have no idea about this nude range but the normal long lasting lipsticks (the older range) last decently well on me. I think the nude shades fade faster than the darker shades.

      I agree Shireen – that could definitely be the reason why they fade easily

    I’m always looking for a great nude lipstick and I am loving the color of this one.

    Thanks for sharing!

      I know what you mean, even for me it’s hard to find a good nude

    That’s too bad that they’re not too long lasting! The lipsticks are pretty shades although probably not for my skin tone. I also love a good pop of color with my lipsticks… no nude shades for me! But they look lovely on you 🙂

      They are really pretty aren’t they? Yeah that’s the downside

    The lipgloss sounds a lot better than the lipsticks, if something doesn’t last long i use something called lipcote which helps it stay on, but usually works better with matte so not sure how well it would work with these!! I love the shades too they are so pretty xxxx

    Love you new blog look! 🙂

    I’ve never tried Essence lipsticks even though I love them! I just found their pigmentation is to be poor. But I think this is a new formula and it looks great! I’ll definitely check it out now <3

    That brownish nude color is so pretty! But they both look gorgeous on you, your complexion is perfect to pull off these kind of colors!
