Hey everyone, today I’m back with a review on the Essence Matte effect lip gloss.
I picked up the colours 06 Soft Nude and 07 Silky red
Let me start by saying I love these lip glosses, they are so silky smooth on the lips. I wouldn’t say they were very matte though, but they also definitely aren’t a gloss which is tricky. In my opinion the best way to describe the finish is more like satin.
The above swatches have been applied directly from the tube with no lip liner.
The glosses are a little slippery on the lips, not to be confused with the Australis Velour Lips which set like concrete. These don’t really set at all, which I personally quite like as a change from the usual matte lip glosses that are on the market, but if you’re looking for a product that won’t budge then these probably won’t be for you.
I picked my glosses up at Priceline and can’t find them on the site for the life of me, but I don’t think they were any more than $6 AUD if that. My local store had 3 colours but was out of stock of the other shade.
Like I said, I really like these glosses and think they’re perfect as a ‘throw on and go’ lip product, easy to apply and smell great!
