I picked this up on a whim as it was one sale for $1.34 as I love/am obsessed with coral lipsticks. The colour shows up on my lips as a frosty soft pink with slight orange undertones. Gives your lips a hint of colour with a shimmery finish. The formula is quite glossy, but smooth and kind of feels moisturizing. Wears for about one to two hours before completely disappearing. I love the colour, but not crazy about the frosty shimmery finish and lack of staying power.. Personally not an item I would repurchase.

Love the price, packaging and smell of this cute little thing but the formula is too glossy for my liking and I prefer a lipstick with more staying power. Pretty shade though.

I have a few Essence lipsticks but this one has to be my favorite. It is more like a tinted lip balm than a true lipstick in my opinion because it is so glossy and not very pigmented. I would say it is a bit similar to the Revlon Lip butters (the less pigmented shades like Cupcake, Strawberry Shortcake, Creme brulee) but the Lip butters have a thicker texture and are not so shiny, more glossy.
The staying power is not that great, maybe two hours but that's still better than I expected considering the price and texture. There's no glitter in it. I like the packaging as well, the casing matches the color of the lipstick. The scent is very fruity and summery, it reminds me of bubblegum.
It's also really easy to apply without a mirror. As I said, like a tinted lip balm, but better.
