Just before the end of the year I received a huge delivery from Freebees PR and Marketing. It was filled to the brim with Essence love and I’ve been having a blast trying all the products out. I’ve even created a makeup look using only Essence products, which I will be posting on the blog in due time.
In the next couple of weeks I will be featuring some of my favourite products from the Essence Summer Collection. Kicking it off is the liquid lipsticks. These lipsticks combines the best of two lip pros by providing the coverage of a lipstick and adding the shine of a gloss. I received it in two shades – “show off!” and “make a statement”. I really love the design of the tubes, they are shaped like a lipstick bullet on the inside creating the illusion of a regular lipstick tube. The applicator is really soft with a rounded tip and holds just the right amount of product for easy and flawless application.
These liquid lipsticks easily glide on and the pigmentation provides just the right amount of coverage for a gorgeous pop of colour. The shades of the tubes gives a really good indication of the lipstick shade inside.
“Show Off!” Is a lovely playful pink shade while “Make a Statement” is a more sophisticated purple hue. The lovely lip colours are not for long wear. They wipe off when you eat or drink, so re-application is required to have gorgeous kissable lips all day long.
These are available from Dischem and Clicks stores in 6 gorgeous shades. They retail for R47.95 making them a great steel for a beauty on a budget.
