Essence came out with renovated assortment for Fall 2013.
For the longest time I've missed pigmented lipsticks in their regular collection.
They finally made a variety of pigmented lipsticks that are suppose to be long lasting.
Since I have almost every lipstick color imagined, I picked up the most neutral one- 07 Natural Beauty.
Natural Beauty is a mid-toned rose with a mauve undertones.
It's that typical ''my lips but better'' shade which doesn't wash you out since it has rose undertones.
I have lots of nude lipsticks in my collection but this particular shade is quite unique.
DUPE ALERT! It's a perfect dupe for Urban Decay lipstick in Naked yet a tinge more warm.
The longevity is mediocre and stays on for about 2-4 hours.
Pigmentation is great and the texture is super comfortable.
They don't have any particular scent and the packaging doesn't feel tacky or cheap.
I have to admit I was quite surprised with the quality and shade range- Good job Essence!
I'm happy Essence finally released some proper lipsticks and not just kiddish lippies in cheap plastic tubes. Natural Beauty 07 is a perfect everyday shade and it compliments almost every skin tone. I would highly suggest to check out Essence Longlasting lipsticks at affordable 2,5€.
PROS: great formula, comfortable to wear, great shade range, good pigmentation, affordable price
CONS: it's not longlasting, no scent, boring packaging (yet not tacky)
