essence is known for their affordable cosmetics and decent products. I don't have many products from this line but I do really like the mini quick dry nail polishes and their pencil eye liner. They also have some beautiful eye shadows, although we don't get many products here in Toronto; our selection is limited to a small display usually tucked away in a corner of Shoppers Drug Mart.
esssence stay with me long lasting lipgloss
These lip glosses are great for when you want something lighter on your lips. They aren't very pigmented when you apply them, the deepest and most pigmented color of the three is the color Pretty Witty which is a beautiful pink-mauve color; while the others give a light wash of color that is a bit more transparent.
They say long lasting on the tubes but I haven't noticed that they last any longer than an average drug store lip gloss.
The glosses are about $1.49 each and they are a tad sticky on the lips. I find myself grabbing for these when I can't decide on a color or when I don't want to wear a heavy lipstick shade. I also wear these to the gym to keep my lips looking good and prevent them from getting dry.
Below are the colors I purchased
essence xxxl shine lipgloss
This lipgloss is rather thick and a bit sticky. It is also very shiny on the lips and I prefer the stay with me long lasting glosses. I didn't care very much for how this gloss appeared on my lips.
The essence lipsticks also cost about $1.49 each and I only have two colors because the color selection was a bit sparse and I didn't see any other shades that I liked. These two lipsticks give a really nice color pay off, they are non-drying and they have average lasting power. I Like that the formula is creamy and that they apply glossy.
