I’m pretty sure everyone who shops for makeup has come across Essence cosmetics. Its a brand that is not only affordable but has a young, vibrant and chic vibe to it. Every time I go shopping I always find myself at the Essence stand looking for something.
So one day i just decided to purchase the Essence Matt Matt Lip Gloss. I bought the shade Beauty Approved. It’s a lovely nude shade with supple hints of pink to it. It’s meant to be a creamy mousse texture that has a velvet matte finish. It retails for R49.95 which seemed pretty affordable to me. The product also comes with a doe foot applicator which applies the product smoothly.
My final thoughts:
I did not like this product. First of all, when i applied this product my lips it was just so streaky and second of all it takes forever to dry down. I assumed that it probably would have a semi matte finish since it said it was matte and lipgloss. It also doesn’t last too long on the lips and I to reapply after a few hours. Also it came completely off when I ate. I know for sure I definitely won’t repurchase this again.
I know this was a pretty short review but I thought I should just let you know about my experience with this product. So that’s all for now. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram here.
