I am so excited to share my new found drugstore love with you - Essence lipsticks. I played around with Essence products before, but mostly the eyeshadows and nail polishes. Pretty good quality. But then, recently, I decided to pick up some lipsticks (I'm telling you, lipsticks are going to be the reason why I will be homeless one day).

Essence is quite difficult to find in Singapore, since it is really affordable and only some stores have them. The products are also constantly out of stock. See something you like? Grab it. It's a war zone.

Considering the number of reds I have, I decided to try some shades which I currently do not own. I chose: Coral Calling 01 and Wear Berries 09!

These lipsticks are so creamy. They glide onto the lips so smoothly! No tugging at all. Love the formula as well. Really moisturising. I do not need to prep my lips with lip balm before using this. Pigmentation is great as well. One layer gives you colour but keeps it pretty sheer. Two layers gives you the exact colour in the tube. Lasting power is decent as well, about 4 hours despite eating and drinking.

I have no complains about this lipstick. Best part : they are SGD$4.90! I saw these in Europe too and I'm glad to say the price difference isn't dramatic at all. Only a few cents cheaper in Germany where Essence Cosmetics originated from.

Overall: 4.5/5

Hope this helped! Do go check these lipsticks out if you can. Shade range isn't extensive but there is a decent selection. I purchased these from the Watsons in Ngee Ann City!

Have a great makeup day ahead! XO.
