Love for Lipstick: Essence Lip Products

Essence Lip Products.jpeg

Hi guys! I’m back with another post for my Love for Lipstick Series! For this series, I am hauling, reviewing and comparing various lipsticks from across the board. This is all in an effort of expanding my horizons and trying different brands.

Today, I’m looking at Essence which is a brand I hadn’t previously tried. But since it is the Canadian Beauty Blogger‘s Featured Brand, I thought I would grab some lip products and try them out. It’s a very, very inexpensive brand which, if you’re Canadian, you can find at Shopper’s Drug Mart! I’m not sure which stores sell it in other countries.

I’m very impressed with the wear-time of these lipsticks! I used the Satin Mauve Lipliner as a base and then applied the Longlasting Lipstick in Natural Beauty over top and it wore beautifully throughout the day. When I checked in around noon I had been drinking tea and water all morning and my lipstick looks flawless. At the end of the day, at my last check-in there is quite a bit less pigment but I had ate lunch and continued to drink water throughout the afternoon. It did fade very evenly though.

I found this combination did not feel too dry at all on the lips. I applied my usual lip balm before hand which always helps keep my lips from feeling dry when I wear matte lipsticks. Usually I might feel a bit of a drying effect later on the day and will feel the need to wear lip balm but this did not make me feel like that at all!

Overall, I’m very impressed. These lip products were all very, very inexpensive and felt like they were of a high quality. I will definitely purchase more next time I am at Shoppers Drug Mart!

  1. I had a few Essence lip glosses and lipsticks over the years and they’re REALLY nice quality for the price! I remember the lip glosses weren’t sticky at all and smelled like candy. I was impressed that something costing less than $5 feels so nice on the lips, don’t stink like chemicals and offers a great selection of colours! I should look into picking some up again.

      • I want to try their mascaras too! What I don’t like is that their products aren’t safety sealed so people sometimes open them up. There’s a Shoppers that always put tape around the caps so that’s where I’d get mine!

  2. I’ve got and love a few of the liners and lipsticks as well! Especially for the price! The glosses are pretty great too! And I kinda like some of the gel eyeliners; they’re not bad for the price. I’ve heard good things about a mascara they make but I haven’t tried it yet. Awesome post! xo

    • I’ve heard great things about a mascara they make too! It’s on my list of things that I need to pick up! I had one of the gel liners and I paid for it, but somehow it never made it home with me? I noticed a few days later… it must have not been put in the bag 😦 good thing it was only a few dollars… Lesson learned!

  3. Essence definitely makes some great products, I’ve never tried any of their lipsticks though! They look lovely! I always seem to pick up at least one product of theirs to try when I’m in Shoppers, you can’t beat their prices! 💸
