Review: Essence liquid lipstick (06 Make A Statement)18:35
I already spoke of my love for Essence's new liquid lipsticks. The first shade that I bought was 03 Almost Real. I liked the comfortable feel of it and decided to grab another shade. I'll admit that most of the shades are not my kind of wearable shades, but I did manage to find one everyday wearable red.
It's called 06 Make A Statement. In this one you also get 4 ml of product for the price of 2.79€.
I won't go into details of the formula, because I already explained it here. It's basically like a highly pigmented lip gloss with a very moisturizing and comfortable formula. It's not the most long lasting thing and it starts to wear off from the inner part of the lips. This is more visible with this shade, because this one is darker. The lighter shades are more forgiving.
Doe foot applicator hold a lot of product, that should be enough to cover the entire lips.
Lipstick doesn't feel sticky, but it has a very moisturizing shiny finish to it.
Shade 06 Make A Statement is like a warm cherry red. It's a bit pink toned, but would be qualified as a red. For some reason it seems to have a bit of brown undertone on me. Maybe it's just my yellow toned complexion playing games on me. It's definitely a nice warmer pinkier take on a regular red.
This one is also really pigmented and covers lips pretty well. I like the juicier finish that it gives.
I wanted to compare this shade with some other lip products. Unfortunately, I don't really own much of such reds.
Catrice Longlasting Lip Liner in 040...And The Cherry On The Top is darker and more red. Essence Longlasting Lipliner in 06 A Girl's Dream is somewhat similar, but has a bit more peach to brown undertone. I love the shade of Bourjois Rouge Edition 12 hours lipstick in 33. It's my go to fall red. This one is also a lot more peach brown than Essence's liquid lipstick.
As you can see, I don't really have a dupe for this shade, but I do have some reds with similar tones to it.
This is how it looks like on me. Pretty neutral take on a classic red lip.
