Review: Essence Hello Autumn lip cream and eye pencil12:33
Essence recently came out with Hello Autumn limited edition. I never planned to get anything from that collection, but look at me... I still got their eye pencil and one of the lip creams. Products that are not planned, are usually the best. In my case, it really is true.
Essence Hello Autumn Lip Cream in C02 Keep Calm & Go For a Walk
I got this, because in the back it said it's a semi matt finish. Lately, I just love those finishes and I've been saying why doesn't Bourjois makes a more natural or nude shades of their Velvets. Well, this Essence in the shade C02 Keep Calm & Go For a Walk was my answer (my very cheap answer, that is).
The packaging is plastic and looks the same as their old Stay Matte Lip Creams. Standard Essence applicator. There's 4 ml of product in it and it costs 2.19 €.
I find that it lasts surprisingly well on my lips. If you put it over lip pencil it will stay on for a very long time. Plus the shade is sort of forgiving. I find that it doesn't dry out my lips at all. I also love the smell of it. It's a really nice sweet subtle scent, that always makes me happy, when I put it on.
The shade is my perfect nude shade. First, because it's a warm toned shade and second, because it's pretty similar to my natural lip color. I would describe it as a dirty peach based pink. I really like the fact that it is not cool toned, like most of the pink shades are.
Essence Hello Autumn Eye Pencil in 01 Leaves Are The New Beef
The shade of this pencil looked so pretty, that I had to get it. It's a standard eye pencil that has two sides. On one side is the pencil and on the other is rubber smudge thing. This can be used to smudge or blend the pencil, once you've applied it. It has 1.80 g of product and costs 1.59 €.
The shade is also a very my kind of shade. It's a beautiful copper based brown. I think it really does look like autumn shade. It has that very beautiful coppery shine to it. It's not shimmery, but it just gives a copper shine to the color. I find it wears nicely, but I never have problems with eye products fading away.
Here you can see how both products look on me. I have to say, Essence you did a good job, with these products. I love the shade of lip cream as well as the semi matte finish. I also really like the shade of eye pencil and the fact that it's so nicely buttery. Thumbs up for both of them. If you like any of these, be sure to buy them, before they change up the LE.
Did you get anything else from Essence's Hello Autumn LE? How do you like it?
