Review: Essence Hello Autumn lip cream and eye pencil

12:33

Hey Beauties!

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 €.



The texture is very pigmented and thick, yet creamy. It nicely spreads all over the lips. I think you need a thin layer to get the color. If you put on too much it may leave thick lines around your inner lips. I find it sits lightly on the lips, doesn't feel sticky or anything. It's creamy at the beginning, but after a while it sets into  this semi matte finish, which also looks very similar to their old versions of Stay Matte Lip Creams. The only difference in my opinion, the old versions felt very powdery on the lips. However this one is light, yet more creamy.


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 pencil is so buttery that it glides on the skin like nobody's business. I love love that kind of formulas. It's also pigmented enough and if you use the smudger, you get a very soft line, that is blended out. If you're looking for a very buttery and soft eye pencil, you need this.


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?

    1. They should come, don't worry:). The shade is really pretty. Shame they only have this one and the green. I would like these formulas to be permanent:).

    2. yes, I reserved the palettes so hopefully they'll call me soon. this collection is late because 2 weeks ago they forgot to send them in a truck to slovenia and croatia. so i'm still waiting. I think this is one of the prettiest essence collections of this year. all the products are lovely and look practical and cute. I think i'll skip the lip cream because I have all the 4 old ones, and also i have too many nude shades.

    3. Oh, I didn't know you can reserve it. Then you're fine, it'll be waiting for you when it comes:). It is very pretty. I also liked the powder, but didn't see how I would use it...it looks a bit like a bronzer to me:).

    4. I dont reserve every time. But when there's something i really want (like eye palettes), i print out a photo of the products with my name and phone number, and they call me when the products arrive. so I dont miss something I love. These will be in dm later this month, but I like to have them first, when they're in muller, so you have to be very fast, because they sell out soon.

    1. Mene je tudi presnetil, predvsem mehkoba. Naj Essence naredi kar stalno linijo z več odtenki.:)

  7. Ne morem verjet, enaki stvari sem vzela. Edino šminka mi je preveč nude in rjava nekak...ampak ji oprostim zaradi finiša. Svinčnik je pa božanski :)

    1. Hehe;) Je bilo že očitno najboljše tole:) A res? Na meni pa včasih preveč roza za moj okus. Čist odvisno tudi kaj imam drugo na obrazu. Pravim...tile svinčniki bi mogli biti v stalni liniji - jaz bi kupila še več odtenkov:).
