I am a huge fan of red lip colour, as well as Essence cosmetics. So today I have a review of Essence Stay Matt Lip Cream in 04 Silky Red.
This is a gorgeous bright red, that has a creamy formula, yet looks matte on the lips (we use 'matte' where I live, vs. matt).
Sorry about the awkward blurry mirror photos (I swear, I tried to remove those spots but they just didn't go!):
The colour below is the most accurate:
My camera was having a crazy time with this red when I took a flash non-reflection-in-the-mirror photo:
(The more I look at this, the weirder it looks O-o)
It doesn't dry my lips out very much despite it being a matte formula. The colour payoff is fantastic, it smells like Lip Smackers Vanilla Frosting lip gloss from a bazillion years ago, and it was dirt cheap! :D YAY ESSENCE!! However, I found this on a stand that was separate from the usual Essence permanent display, so it may be harder to find. Boo!
This wears really well but I can't give an accurate time frame of how long it lasts since I smoke and drink tea/stuff all day.
Seriously, this is one of my all-time favourite lip products, and I just got it!!
Have you tried any of the Matt Lip Creams?
Have a great day! :D
