Essence Liquid Lipsticks ($3.49; essence.com) are a new spring launch from the brand that come in six shades. It is described as a mix between a lipstick and a gloss - the color of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss without the gloopy, sticky feel.
The colors are quite opaque, though not completely pigmented, with a semi-see through quality. This one feels more like a shiny, slightly thick and plushy, hydrating liquid lipstick without all the matte-ness and the formula is quite long wearing too. There’s a slightly strong, sweet scent that takes a while to dissipate. The texture sits well on lips that are flake free and feels quite non-sticky for a liquid lipstick. Although small, the color range is quite nice and these make for a fabulous wallet friendly beauty pick!
