Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks

Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks

Matt matters! the light, creamy texture of the new lipstick range unites a high colour-dispersion with a matt finish.

Matt is still in, even if it's slowly being replaced by lipsticks that are less matt but still aren't really shiny.  But I believe that matte lipsticks are here to stay, maybe as a niche and thus I don't mind buying new ones from time to time.

This time, I picked two lipsticks from the Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick line that is already available in some stores as a preview edition. In Autumn it will be a part of the permanent collection and you'll be able to pick up these beauties in 8 different shades.



Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick

I picked up two lipsticks in the shades: 02 Perfect Match which is a nude pink and 08 It's a Statement which is a deep cool-toned burgundy. I thought it was brown when I bought it, but it's not.

ESSENCE MATT MATT MATT 02 PERFECT MATCH LIPSTICK

This lipstick is a cool toned nude that looks pretty good on my pale skin. I usually have a problem with nude lipstick because they look to orange on me and that looks just bad. 

I think this one is a nice daily lipstick since you can just throw it on and go on with your life, no need to be super exact with the application, well, at least I don't have to be since it's so close to my natural lips color.

I wouldn't call the finish a true matt but more like a satin finish. It feels really nice on the lips, non-drying, and a bit protective. Plus it smells delicious, but I am not sure what does it smell of. It's a warm type of scent. 

It's also not very long lasting, but I don't mind reapplying it since it fades so nicely. It lasts about 5h without drinking or eating, but since I'm always drinking water, I'd say that for me that's more like 3 hours of wear.

ESSENCE MATT MATT MATT 08 IT'S A STATEMENT LIPSTICK

Truth to be told, I had high hopes for this color but it's a dark lipstick and thus a bit more problematic to apply. I think that it needs a lip pencil underneath or something to make it easier to transit to the darker color. I think I applied about 3 layers of it, but I still couldn't make it look right on pictures. 

It takes a brush to make it look good and a couple of minutes (10 for me, which I usually don't have) extra. As you can see, I applied it straight from the bullet. 

It also doesn't have a matte finish but more like a satin one. I think I may be using it only for evenings since it takes way too much work for too little effect.

Overall I found my favorite daily lipstick (02 if you are curious) and also found out to test the lipstick in store before purchasing it. 

Did you try any of the new lipsticks from this range?

    1. Nude odtenek je zakon. Definitivno je ena boljših Essence šmink, kar sem jih probala. :3

  2. Sama mam tudi odtenek 08 It's a statement pa pod njim uporabim lipliner pa ni več tako grozna za nanašat. Mi je pa ta njihova nova formula dosti bolj všeč kot prejšnja, tudi obstojne so bolj, tak da si še definitivno kupim kakši drugi odtenek :D

    1. Ja, meni so tudi všeč. Sploh nude odtenek, za rdečko morem še ugotovit kako oz s čim jo kombinirat, da ne bom "strašila" okoli. Lip liner je super ideja! :D

  4. Sem kar predvidevala, da bo temnejša problematična. Mi je že po swatchu izgledala tako. So pa nude odlične, potrebuješ 03 (MAC Mehr dupe)! :)

  7. Hi, Tamara! Thank you for such detailed review! I've just bought a 08 lipstick and a lip pencil which I guess matches perfectly to it (Longlasting lipliner No. 11 Be a Game-Changer). I have not figured out yet what type of make up to use with this colours but I could not resist to temptation) It was a love from the first sight. Probaly you can advise me something?
