One of my first reviews was about the budget brand Essence and its lipstick colour up! shine on! in 3 shades (you can find it here).
Since my collection is way bigger, today I want to tell you about 3 more shades of colour up! shine on! These shades will be 05 Spicy Latte, 06 Strawberry Popsicle, and 013 Steal the Show.
I will try to keep this review short, because you can find way more information about the collection itself in my previous post here.
Design. The lipstick case is made of high-quality plastic with the brand’s logo at the junction while the lid color repels a shade color, the whole design looks quite futuristic. When buying the lipstick, it wasn’t sealed in a film and instead a sticker with the product information appeared as a protection against opening the product in the store.
On the backside of each lipstick it is possible to find the number and name of the shade.
Sorry for those pics, but I have been using those for quite some time.
Texture and applying. All lipsticks from this line have a creamy texture but feel more gel-ish. While applying the product it easily gives off color, due to the light texture it’s quite buildable so you can vary a shade intensity. Сolour up! shine on! lipstick has a glossy finish (no glitter, pearl and etc.), the product has a sweet taste yes
it has sweet taste.
The lipstick formula contains some care components that perfectly nourish lips and does not emphasize exfoliation. The durability of the product is okay for this glossy type product for about 2-3 hours, it will survive a cup of coffee, but after a full meal, a correction is required. The product delicately comes off the lips but a bright shade can leave a little bit of a stain afterward. It is easy to remove the lipstick with a tissue or any makeup remover.
05 Spicy Latte is a warm brown-ish shade, which is perfect for nude makeup on the run. Due to the glossy finish, the lipstick looks luxurious!
06 Strawberry Popsicle
Is a very nice and juicy sort of red shade, which can be very bright if multiple layers are applied.
06 Strawberry Popsicle, multiple layers, daylight
06 Strawberry Popsicle, multiple layers, ring light
013 Steal the Show
That colour is very beautiful and bright, and this shade will definitely draw attention at one’s lips! But this purple colour with a drop of whiteness could be a good shade for blondies.
013 Steal the Show, multiple layers, daylight
