THE BASICS
Essence Lipsticks come in colour coded packaging. The shades of the lipstick are mimicked on the tube it comes in. They are available in 16 shades with different finishes. Today I am reviewing All About Cupcake.

When in doubt, use All About Cupcake, the colour looks good with anything without emptying your pockets!
                                                                                                   
             
MY OPINION
Seeing Essence Lipsticks for such a cheap price tag I decided to give one a go and picked the colour I most liked on the swatch All About Cupcake which is a soft peachy-pink shade, a colour hard to go wrong with. The lipstick has a creamy, glossy finish, is very mositurising but not heavily pigmented. It is pigmented enough to make the colour pop on your lips but I won’t call it opaque, at least the lighter shades are not.
The shade I picked up is definitely very pretty and flattering. I end up using this every day. The lighter, glossier shades wear quickly staying for not more than 2-3 hours on my lips.
To top it all the matching tubes make it easy to pick a colour when in a rush and they have such cute names too.

RATING
For €2 these lipsticks are certainly are steal! Loads of colours, moisturising on the lips.

    1. True. Sometimes drugstore products are way better than some high-ends.

  3. I sometimes do prefer lipsticks that are not too pigmented because it makes it so much easier to apply. I'd wear this shade everyday. Suits your skin tone very well. :)

  8. Oh no, what a shame it's not completely opaque! At leats you get a nice pop of color, and it doesn't feel drying (:
