Love At First Try and so far the gem in this collection is the Liquid Lipstick for just €3.09. There are six colours in the range, but I only bought the stunner 04 Show Off!
Admittedly, 4mls isn't an awful lot, but this little hybrid packs quite a punch in the pigmentation department. This is a lipstick crossed with a gloss and the formulation feels exactly like that: Glossy and smooth but balmy and comfortable at the same time. BUT, If you over load your lips it is going to be sticky and it will bleed, so gently gently with this. The applicator does give great control so you can apply quite precisely without having to line your lips.
essence Liquid Lipstick 04 Show Off! is a bright fuchsia pink that is really pretty. Bright, but oh so pretty. I have included swatches in the shade and in the sun in the pic above so you can see how glorious it is: a real show off colour! OOOoohh and they smell nice too, like sweets, but not mad-in-your-face-sweet.
Wear time is quite good considering the price, it stays quite balm-like on my lips even when the gloss is gone. The colour payoff it lovely too, leaving a nice satin finish stain after the gloss goes. If you want to keep the shine you will have to top up, but the packaging is so chic, you won't mind bringing this cutie out for touch ups.
If you like the colour but aren't keen on the shine, a little blot with a tissue takes away 80% of the shine but leaves all of the colour. Apart from the colour, the best thing about this is that it doesn't dry out your lips and you don't need a perfect base to get a great result.

€3.09 isn't going to break the bank so I urge to to pick up at least one and see if it doesn't impress you! Find an essence stand in most Penneys stores and selected pharmacies.
