Review: Essence Liquid Lipstick 03 Almost Real

11:17

Hey Beauties!

Did you already get anything from Essence new regular range? I grabbed one of their liquid lipsticks as soon as I saw it in their preview of fall/winter new products. I've seen Catrice's as well, but for some reason didn't wanted to spend that much money on something I didn't even know, if I'm gonna like. 


It costs 2.79 € and you get 4 ml of it. I like the simple clean with no writing packaging. It's plastic and transparent, so you can see the product shade. For some reason this simplistic design really appeals to me. It's also pretty small, so perfect for carrying around.


It has a doe foot applicator, which holds quit a lot of product. Maybe even too much for one application. It's super soft and it works fine for distributing it around the lips. 


I chose the shade 03 Almost Real. It's a peach based light brown nude. It's definitely warm toned and one me it looks like a peachier brown version of my lips. I can't say how glad I am that they did peach nude shade instead of the usual pink. 

It's very pigmented for a liquid lipstick. With just one swipe you can cover the lips. I can't say about other shades, but this one is really pigmented. It doesn't feel sticky on the lips at all, just very heavy. It's one of those really obvious thick formulas, which feels so comfortable on the lips. As far as the comfort this reminds me of Catrice Beautifying Lip Smoothers, just thicker and more pigmented version. It will look shiny, of course. 

It wears off nicely, because it fades away evenly. Of course it's not long lasting, since it goes off as soon as it touches glass or food. If you don't eat or drink this has some really good staying power

My only problem with this is that it can look weird on the inside of your lips. It forms a very obvious line. If you blend this as soon as you apply it and don't rub your lips together, there shouldn't be this problem. 

I haven't had really dry lips lately, just a little and it didn't really make the dry patches any more obvious. 

It has a very subtle sweet smell, which reminds me of vanilla or cookies. 



I'm very pleased with this lipstick. What I like the most about it, it's the so comfortable feeling on the lips, good pigmentation and the warm peach toned nude shade. The packaging is also really nice. I can't say anything bad about it. It's not revolutionary, but it's a really good product.

  1. Ta odtenek tekoče šminke sem jaz tudi takoj porabila, ko sem videla preview in je tudi meni všeč. :) Še odtenek mi je začuda všeč, pa nisem velik ljubitelj nude odtenkov, ker mam raje pink. Tako, da sem vesela, da sem ga vzela. In se strinjam s tvojo oceno. Ti pa lahko povem, da nič kaj dosti ne zamujaš glede Catrice tekoče šminke. Jaz imam en odtenek in moram priznat, da mi je od Essence bolj všeč. Sem tudi z Catrice zadovoljna, ampak se mi zdi, da je pri Essence aplikator boljši in se zato lepše nanaša, pa še cenejša je od Catrice. S tem, da ima Catrice res malo lepšo embalažo. Drugače pa hočem še kak odtenek pri Essence ali Catrice, ker bi rada še nekaj rozastega - si ne morem pomagat. :P

    1. Se je meni tudi zdelo, da od Catrice niso tako dobro pigmentirani, niti noben odtenek mi tam ni bil všeč ):. Jaz bi pa še kakšno oražno imela :D

    1. Ta je res dober, upam da so ostali odtenki enako pigmentirani :). Ja meni tudi bolj na oražno potegne, kot mogoče na kom drugem :).

  3. Meni je ta odtenek tudi takoj prirastel k srcu in normalno da sem ga morala kupiti, ampak mi niti približno ne paše tako kot tebi. Catrice se mi zdijo pa manj pigmentirani, ampak odtenki so pa vseeno lepi :)

    1. Sem prepričana, da ti paše ;) Potem dobro, da nisem vzela nobenega od Catrice. Ko sem v trgovini sprobala so se mi tudi zdeli bolj prozorni.

  6. Embalaža je res kjut pa tudi odtenek je čudovit, ti paše! :) Ampak jaz kar nisem in nisem za te shiny šminke, čeprav res tako na lip glose spominjajo :)

  8. Jaz pripravljam primerjavo med Essence in Catrice tekočimi šminkami, ni pa še gor, ker sem ugotovila, da sem pozabila pofotkati Essence šminki na ustnicah. Ti pa lahko tudi jaz zagotovim, da so Essencove boljše v vsakem oziru, Catrice ni naredil nič posebnega, le navadne glose.

    1. Hvala :) Hehe...jaz pa večkrat ne morem, ker imam skoz suhe ustnice, pa bi rada več. Zato so pa te tekoče super, ker so fajn vlažilne, nič ne izsušujejo :)

  10. Tudi meni je embalaža zelo všeč, ker je tako preprosta, se mi zdi da je kar nekaj posebnega za Essence, ki ima večinoma zelo barvite in popisane embalaže :) pa tudi odtenek je zelo lep :)

    1. Essence ima večinoma kar več dizajna. Imaš prav je prav presenečenje za njih :)

  11. Jaz imam Catrice in Essence tekoče šminke. Meni osebno so Essence boljše, ker niso tako shiny kot Catrice. Catrice bolj spominjajo na gloss, tako da me to malo odbije, ampak niso pa tako zelo slabe kvalitete (če ti je seveda všeč shiny finiš). Trenutno se navdušujem nad Essence tekočo šminko 06 make a statement. Se mi zdi res primerna vsakodnevna rdeča, kvaliteta je pa tudi na nivoju.

    1. Zanimivo, saj praktično oboje pride od istih ustvarjalcev :). Ta odtenek se sliši super, moram še malo pregledat kakšni so drugi odtenki. Sem tega kupila samo takrat ko je bila LE, ostalih odtenkov niti nisem dodobra pregledala :)

  12. The packaging reminds me of those Maybelline lip glosses! Very pretty color, suits you very well
