On Wednesdays we wear pink... or essence's longlasting lipstick in 09 wear berries!* This was my first time trying out this line of lipsticks from essence, and I was super excited to try out this gorgeous pink shade!
I really love this packaging! The matte black tube has a colour coded ring around the middle, so you can easily find the right shade in your collection. essence is a super affordable drugstore brand, but this packaging doesn't feel cheap at all. The lipstick itself is creamy and hydrating, and the colour has just the right amount of pigment to it. Sometimes I find super opaque lipsticks a bit too high maintenance, so I definitely appreciate how easy it is to slap on this lipstick. As the name would suggest, this formula wears really well, and I only need to reapply after 4-5 hours. However, this lipstick isn't transfer proof, so you do need to be careful when eating/drinking/kissing, etc.
Have you tried any of essence's longlasting lipsticks? I have a red shade from this line that I'm excited to try out soon! If you have any shade suggestions please leave them in a comment below!
