Essence Lipstick in Fairy Tail
I’ve never tried these lipsticks but have always been interested, at a buck or two a pop I really get skeptical about the quality of things… So I just had to review one!
I bought this color because it was 50% off, meaning it may be discontinued soon so go get it now if you want it!
How much?: $1-$2
Where at?: Ulta, Fred Meyers, and essencebeauty.com
Packaging: The packaging is in a plastic tube, the same color as your lipstick. When you open the cap it is clear from where the lipstick twists out. It is a MUCH better packaging style than the Wet n Wild lipsticks and I commend them for that!
Scent: The scent is a light berry sent, it’s hardly noticable but it is sweet. It isn’t too strong like Milani or Maybelline lipsticks, but it isn’t as light as a MAC lipstick.
Taste?: The taste is slightly berry mixed with chemicals. I wouldn’t say it’s pleasant but it isn’t unpleasant like NYX round lipsticks!
Color: The color is a medium coveraged berry w/ slight red and gold shimmer with a glossy finish. For some reason this SLIGHTLY reminded me of NARS Dolce Vita except for darker in color. I don’t know why! I think it’s the glossy finish and the very light feeling of it.
Lasting power: This lipstick gives me a good 3 solid hours of wear!
I think it’s a fantastic product and I love the color, definitely is going to be the first one I pop out during fall!
- Very pretty color
- Glossy finish
- Long lasting power
- Fairly sturdy tube
- Very cheap!
- Slightly displeasing smell/taste
- Not a very aesthetically pleasing tube ( I know, I’m picky!)
