As I was trolling the aisles of a pharmacy yesterday on the lookout for dark and rich shades of lipstick (just something to add some freshness for the new year) i came across the essence range of lipsticks, completely affordable and could easily give the other brands a run for their money but i felt the colour pay of wasn’t the best, yes it glided on smoothly and had some pigment to it,I would however refer to it as a tinted balm. Smooth, silky, tinted and affordable, easily something i would buy.
