The Essence Cosmetics Vibrant Shock Lip Paint (£3.3 for 5 mL) are the brands new liquid lipstick formula which also is available in a metal version. The brand also have another matte liquid lipstick formula, the Matt Matt Matt Lipgloss, which I also will be reviewing for you soon.
On their website they state that the lipstick
– will dry into a velvety-matte finish
– feels light on the lips
– have high coverage
– have a non-sticky texture
When I first swatched the liquid lipstick it did not seem like it had high coverage as I could see my skin through it. But on the lips it seems like it does cover the natural lip shade. I don’t think this liquid lipstick dries matte at all as it dosen’t dry that much and will stay wet on your lips. It will transfer a lot, even more than a regular creme lipstick. Because it don’t dry it will feel sticky on the lips but not uncomfortable sticky. I would not call this a matte liquid lipstick but more a creme liquid lipstick. The product also have strong scent which reminds me of perfumed soap or something. The scent goes away after it is applied to the lips.
I will award this liquid lipstick 2 hearts out of 5 possible.
I will not rate this any higher as the product is not matte as they advertise it to be. I do think you could make it work as a creme liquid lipstick but it will still be more wet and sticky than a normal creme lipstick would be. I would not repurchase this product.
