I haven't had a proper look at an Essence stand in a long time (mainly because I'm trying to avoid the money pit that calls itself Penneys) but I did pop in for some nail polish remover a few weeks ago and these caught my eye.
I love a good neutral lipstick, I can't carry bright colours off at all. These babies have been out a while, but I hadn't seen them. They feel lovely on, and they last as long as any other brand I've ever tried, including MAC.
Here's a look at them on my mush.
#7 (Natural Beauty) is a really nice "my lips but better" shade. #13 (Love Me) has a hint of peachy coral and is really nice for this time of year. I know they look pretty similar there but you can tell the difference straight away when you look at the whole face (don't know what face I'm pulling in this first photo, that is NOT going extra large) - Here's #7:
#13 hasn't been off my lips since I got it, and I'll definitely be picking up some more of this range the next time I need socks. Or a scarf. Or a bag. Or shoes. Or teatowels.
I lost my receipt but according to the good folks over at Essence Ireland, the lipsticks retail at €2.49 each.
