GREAT lip cream!really not expected this quality for such a price! I got the hot pink and red, full coverage with stain power,even wipe away the top coat, after eating, I still got color on my lips. a bit dry after all day, but not serious.
I'm going to keep this short and sweet, I own the berry, nude, and red shades:
-smells delicious (like vanilla cupcakes, comparable to NYX soft matte lip cream)
-creamy and matte
-needs reapplication, but I don't value that quality too highly in comparison to the other extreme benefits!
I bought this product in the lighter rose shade. I don't think the shade quite suits me, but I won't base my review on the mismatched color. What I will base my review on is the disgusting texture and horrible smell of this product. It went on creamy, but not creamy in that nice way that a lip butter goes on. It went on creamy like slathering a actual butter across my mouth. It was impossible to get the gloopy texture to cover evenly, and once it dried down, which took a long time, it both settled into all the little creases in my lips, and glooped up in weird clumps. I never have issues with lip products doing either of these things, but this product managed to do just that. I looked like a rabid dog foaming at the mouth. It has an incredibly strong sickly sweet smell that does not go away after wearing it for any amount of time. Long story short, this was a huge fail for me. To add a positive side, I love love love the longlasting lipstick line from this brand. Essence has been very hit or miss for me. But at this price point, who knows, maybe it's worth a shot for you.
After reading a couple of reviews I decided to go buy it for myself. I got the 2 nudes and the fuchsia one. To be honest I expected them to last longer. I am a smoker and when I go out eating/drinking etc. the nude ones practically dissapear after half an hour. The fuchsia one lasts quite well though, and it stains your lips nicely.
Overall I think they are great, especially for their price (2.5$), the nudes are the perfect color for every day and the packaging is quite ok. I just wish they come up with more shades!
I really wanted to love this lip cream. I just picked up Silky Red from Shoppers and it was the last one left in that shade. Was excited to try it as soon as I got home. I applied a light dab of balm prior to the lip cream and found that the lip cream went on streaky. Took a while to get the color even. It's a bit too orange to be a true red. Tomato red us more accurate. The thing that sucks is that it comes off so easily! Even when blotted the color transfers on everything. Overall - not great.
This lip cream looks really matte and bold. This is a bright red with matte finish. It can dry ur lips but you can comfort your lips by putting vaseline, any moisturizing cream. Plus it is not an easy come off lip cream since it is long lasting.... Use this when you want all eyes on you. Def. works... Please have a look at the photos I wear silky red :)
I really love this lip gloss, although I too have to blot my lips a few times to prevent a stringing, but it's worth it!
OMG HALLELUJAH. I love matte lip colors that are not drying, and I think this is genius. I have the bright pinkish fuchsia one, and it is PIGMENTED. Beautiful and amazing color payoff, it is matte, but it is also creamy (like the name implies). It's almost a kind of whipped consistency, and it will wear off after hours or after eating - it is not long lasting, but it won't smudge off easily. That being said, I'd rather have a matte lip color that won't make my lips dry or accentuate my dry lips rather than one that stays no matter what. Definitely looking into the other colors, especially at the price of $2.50!
I have this in the red color and when I apply it, I need to blot a couple of times to prevent transfer. It dries within 2 minutes. It does stain pretty true to color and smells amazing (very sweet)! It has the typical dove tip applicator and it is quite moisturizing. Overall, love this product!
