If you are looking for a budget-friendly, good quality makeup brand, then you can’t get any better than Essence Cosmetics. They have a wide variety of products and rarely do any of them fail. Earlier, when Essence was not available in India, I used to ask my friends to send me some from Europe or I would buy from Singapore but now thankfully, Essence is available in our country both online and in stores and the best part is that they have stuck to the pocket friendly prices. In this post, I’ll talk about a lipstick from their Long Lasting range and the shade is called Adorable Matt.
Price – Rs 299
Availability – Flipkart, Amazon and in some stores in Delhi and Mumbai. In Kolkata, Essence products are available at Bridgette Jones Salon.
The lipstick comes in a black tube with a colored band in the middle to indicate the shade. The brand logo is embossed on the lipstick bullet and that looks quite chic. Adorable Matt is a bright pink red that will suit all complexions and will instantly brighten up the face. The lipstick goes on smoothly, is slightly creamy, goes opaque in two swipes and settles to a semi-matte finish. It does not dry out my lips but is not particularly moisturizing either. The lipstick does not bleed or feather and stays on me for nearly five hours leaving a light berry stain on the lips. At Rs 299, the quality of this lipstick is really good and I’ll definitely recommend this range. I plan on picking up a few more lipsticks and if you have any shade recommendations, do share in the comments below 🙂
This is what Adorable Matt looks like on me.
