They say, “Give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world”.
Does Essence Liquid Lipstick in the shade Peach Party live up to this popular quote? Read to find out! 😉
Liquid love! This new formula combines the best of both lipstick and lip gloss. Get the impact and coverage of a lipstick with the moisturizing shine of a gloss.
Price: 430 PKR.
It comes in a wee cutie plump bottle and contains 0.13 oz of the product. I love how the packaging is in color coordination with the lipstick shade, as if you own a plethora of lip colors, there would be no hassle in locating the color you desire. In addition to this, the applicator is flat from both the ends, which personally appeals me as it give me better control unlike those full round pointy applicators.
Firstly, let’s talk about the formula. Well, it is thicker and sticky considering that it’s a hybrid formula and it has to give that consistency which a lipstick gives. Having said that, it settles more like a gloss, but gives a medium coverage which matches to that of lipstick. Moreover, the shine is just to the point, not so much and not too less. Here, the Essence Cosmetics have done pure justice to the concept of the hybrid formula. It wins it here for me.
The shade is a beautiful baby pink kind of, and would match with lighter-skinned beauties. The pigmentation is quite strong and upon its application I noticed a subtle glow on my face. I don’t know, but it really is that color which lifts up your complexion and brightens up your overall look.
As for longevity, it manages to last for good 4-5 hours. The best part is, the color doesn’t transfer and you can eat and drink as you please. Phew!!!
The cherry on top is that it is super duper hydrating. It does not feel dry and is very moisturizing. Absolutely love the moist feel over my lips. <3
And, and, anddd I absolutely love the biscuit-ti fragrance. Creamy and yummyilicious!
Now comes the only downside I encountered, which is that as you apply, it settles more or less like a patch. It doesn’t glide on smoothly; even if you double up the application, it just doesn’t go smoothly and sticks onto your lips in small portions (if I make sense). I grab a lipstick brush to smooth it out a little and to some extent I manage to overcome this dilemma.
-Good color payoff
-Apt amount of shine
-It settles patchily
-You think the quantity is too less for the price
-You think the color doesn’t go with your skin or is too pink to handle
-If the biscuit-ti fragrance bothers you
-You expected a fuller coverage
I purchased mine from www.daraz.pk. It is my go-to shopping stop; extremely reliable and hassle free :).
Until next time, enjoy this Peach party and I shall catch up with you all in my next post!
Lots of love,
