I got the Essence In The Nude Lipstick and liner a while back... while I was on the hunt for perfect nude lipstick... I'm still on the hunt tho** I think nude lipstick shades are the hardest to find..Tweet
Essence 52 in the nude lipstick; comes in a really cute color-coded packaging which is same as the lipstick color. It is obviously a nude lipstick it has pink undertone, it has a really lovely scent, smells like candy. It is a very moisturising lipstick, creamy and is not so pigmented, it also glides on smoothly.. The staying power is not so great 1-2hours.
As for being a perfect nude or not? This isn't a nude for me, it kind of washes me out.. I wear it under other lip colors sometimes. To avoid this from getting ashy I accompany it with a dark/medium brown lip liner.
Essence says: The cool lip liner colors ensure clear contours and beautiful, shapely lips. a practical effect: the lipliner is smudge-proof and especially long-lasting.
Essence 11 in the nude lip liner: this is a pink shade with brown undertone, it is super creamy and soft, glides on so smooth and it doesn't scratch the lip. It can be worn alone with a clear gloss as it blends in well, it so creamy you won't know it's a liner.
As much as I like the warm color, I find this liner too soft, even when I press very gently it tends to break and then I have to finish up with my finger. The staying power is much better than the lipstick, it lasts really long around 5-6 hours.
The lip liner is great on it's own it doesn't wash me out, as for the lipstick I can't wear it alone because it's not pigmented and when I try to build the color it becomes too much and I look like a ghost.... Together they both look great, the lipstick adds shine to the lip liner.
Price wise? they are both affordable, on repurchasing?! as for the lipstick since it comes out well with a brown lip liner I may repurchase but as for the lip liner I'm unsure as it is too soft but gives nice finish (I think that is what matters right?) but it doesn't quite do a good job as a liner.
