Essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick

Essence Sheer & Shine Lipstick

If Essence isn’t your favorite makeup brand by now, then we need to have a serious talking! 🙂 My die-hard readers will know that I’m an Essence girl through and through and I just love seeing this incredible cosmetics brand grow in front of me.

I first posted about the Essence sheer & shine lipstick in October on my Instagram feed as I had received one of the lipsticks (04 Hidden Secret) in a goodie bag and since then everyone was interested to know about this new Essence lipstick!

I unfortunately struggle with dry and chapped lips the whole year through so to find a lipstick that can keep your lips as hydrated as a lip balm does is nearly impossible! What I love about the Essence sheer & shine lipsticks is that it’s in between a lipstick and a lip balm – let’s call it a tinted lip balm!

Also it’s called sheer & shine because it’s not as pigmented as it looks. You might pick a color and think that it will be too dark but then you’ll notice that it’s a lot more sheer than you expected.

This gorgeous range of lipsticks are available in 11 different shades from nude to pink and retails for only R38.95.

    Aah I love Essence products! The European market has even better Essence makeup than us! These lipsticks are so nice to use though, I like that they moisturize like a lipbalm
