Spending a ton of money on something you’re not sure you’ll love, or that’s too trendy to be a long time staple, isn’t for everyone. With few exceptions it’s budget brands like Essence Cosmetics we turn to when we want to try something out. Once you apply a lip color, no one can really tell if you spent a small fortune or just a few dollars for it.
Transformative Lip Products:
Lip colors can be truly transformative. Feel empowered in red, casual in beige, trendy in any one of the latest unicorn hues.
We can’t get enough of Essence Cosmetics offering trendy, high performance and insanely affordable products. Essence Cosmetics let us indulge our cosmetics cravings without guilt. Here are some of the latest and greatest in Essence Lip color and products:
Classic Bullet Lipstick:
For those who love the classic lipstick bullet the Essence Ultra Last Instant Color Lipstick ($4.99) updates it with long lasting highly pigmemted color to apply in one quick swipe.The creamy formula is mostly matte but not overly dry.
Since there are 20 shade you’ll find some many you love. We loved “Undying Blossom” as it has plenty of pink in it to warm up a less than su-kissed complexion (it looks really red in the tube).
For a true red, try “Head-To-Ma-Toes.”
Butter Stick Glossy Love and Matt Love ($3.99): are moisturizing lip crayons so pampering you’ll want several to keep with you during the Winter. Cocoa butter and a trendy velvet matt finish helps the color glide effortlessly over even chapped lips while it protects and beautifies them.
We like the swivel up crayon packaging. Available in 10 glossy & matt shades. these give you the best of all possible worlds: Trendy moistly matte or glossy color. pampering lip balm, travel-friendly packaging.
Our Metal Shock sample in “Lilly of the Valley” is a neon pink a lipstain with a lot of metallic shimmer.
The Vibrant Shock colors are no less bold and eye catching. We loved the totally natural look of “Voyeur,” one of the only flesh-tinted lip colors we’ve ever loved because it has warmth.
Whether you prefer vibrant or metallic, the concentrated cream formula leaves the lips soft and moist without feeling chalky, sticky or dry. These have a fun, slight fruity fragrance too.
Uniquely You Color:
Kiss The Frog, Kiss the Unicorn, Kiss the Mermaid or Kiss the Flamingo($3.49) are almost magical. These lipsticks react to the personal Ph of your skin and change their color from green, purple or blue into something more like your own lip color, but much better, softer and hydrating in a shade of pink or berry.
If you use the Kiss the…frog or unicorn you will get a medium or bright pink color to lift your mood. If you try Kiss the Mermaid the blue turns into a soft lavender.
We didn’t try the Kiss the Flamingo version but it morphs from neon pink to a more individual pink. Whatever color your lips become, it will be naturally unique to you.
Lovely Lip Liners:
Essence Soft Contouring Lip Liner ($2.49) locks in your color. These traditional pencil-style lip liners have plenty of silky, long-lasting pigment to line and define lips. There are 6 different natural shades.
“Under My Skin” is a great choice for medium and deep pink shades. “Lost in Love” is good for light to medium earth tones. At last count there are nine colors, so you’ll surely find the ones tyou want.
