Here are the shades on my lips:
essence cosmetics is a line that is known for its fun products, fun colors and its inexpensive price point. Not only that but it has amazing quality too. I am a HUGE fan of the line and make sure that when I am overseas I grab as much of what is not available here as possible.
Today I am reviewing one of their new lipstick formulas, ultra last instant colour lipstick. This lipstick is supposed to provide rich, beautiful high impact color in one swipe. Not only that but the color is long-lasting and has a very lightweight feeling, so comfortable you will hardly realize it's there. Currently it comes in three shades: Catch Up Red, Fancy Blush and Purple Heart.
That is the benefit of new technology, pigments and emulsifiers have become so advanced that companies are able to give the customer products that are exactly what she/he wants without creating a prohibitive price point. We can see this with the essence products and how they are able to come out with such wonderful products without breaking the bank.
Here are the swatches of the shades on my arm:

I like how the lipstick feels on my lips. It goes on very smoothly, gliding easily without catching. It does not provide enough pigment in one swipe so that you do have to go back and go over it again. I felt I had to go over my lips a few times to get enough color, I did feel it could be more pigmented. Also, this lipstick does last for hours on the lips and does not feel drying as other long-lasting lipsticks do. I like that. It's definitely creamy. The price point is good too. My other concern is that there are three shades. I would like to see more shades of this lipstick, as I think this line has a future to it.
essence cosmetics ultra last instant colour lipstick retails for $4.99 and can be found online at www.ulta.com and in ULTA stores.

Thank you for this detailed post about cosmetics, it was very interesting to read. I would like to add that it is very important to choose high-quality cosmetics from natural materials in order not to harm the health of the skin. My friend recommended that I read reviews on great healthworks complaints to see what other people have written about their health and personal care products. It is a good help to study the quality before buying.ReplyDelete
