I do have a purple shade in my vanity but it is too drying. I've shared my views on it and you can check it out, but I thought I needed a better purple, which did not restrict the movements of my lips. So, in my huge Dubai online haul, I purchased this shade. This is my first time trying the brand Essence out. Read further for the review:
The lid is a matte purple, which somewhat resembles the shade of the lipstick. Talking about the branding, it's quite minimal. The logo is impressed on the top of the lid and that's all that there is. The shade number and the logo again are written on the bottom. Apart from the lid, the bottom is silver with a twist-up to open mechanism. In conclusion, the packaging doesn't infer a high-end label but an easy-on-the-pockets kind of a pick.
The formula of the lip colour is not dry at all. The application is smooth and the lipstick glides on the lips. There's no shine, which means it is fully matte.
LASTING POWER & LOOK
The lipstick lasts until you eat or drink. As soon as you use your lips, the colour might slightly fade. The lasting power is noteworthy as you would require to retouch it only once, after the meals, especially.
By using this shade, you get the perfect pair of purple lips. If you want a classy look, keep the eye makeup light, and if you want to go all flashy, then choose darker shades for your eyes.
- Impressive lasting power
- Non-drying formula
The lipstick is smooth, matte, and inexpensive, which makes it a perfect pick.
