All you need is Red

Wednesday, 6 May 2015


Last week after an exam I decided to make a sneaky purchase as a kind of an after exam treat. I was looking around in the mall and decided to go take a look at the new Essence lipsticks range which are the nudes. I have heard a lot about them and I really wanted to try one but there were none left. I guess that shows how popular they are. So I settled for this red lipstick.


This lipstick is from the Essence longlasting range in the shade 02 All you need is red. It is packaged in a matt black case with a ring around the middle showing the colour of the lipstick. I find this really helpful for when you are choosing a lipstick in a rush. The bullet has the Essence logo etched in it which I think adds a nice touch.

The shade is a lovely red with a hint of orange. I find that the lipstick glides easily and doesn't dry them out. It is also quite pigmented. The only thing that I don't like is the smell. It doesn't have a perfume smell, just a strong smell. That doesn't really bother me though as it is not strong and wears off after wearing it on your lips. Just like it says, it is quite longlasting and it had only fades a little after eating and drinking.

I was definitely not let down as I really love it. For only €2.40 you cannot go wrong!

Have you tried any Essence lipsticks?

Thanks for stopping by :)
