I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned this in a few recent posts but lately I have been quite obsessed with berry lips. A berry lip is just the perfect shade for fall in my opinion. Lately I came across a berry lipstick, that I’ve been absolutely loving and which I really want to share with you guys.
Today’s post is all about the Essence long wearing lipstick in Wear Berries. Essence has really been impressing me with their products because they are pretty good quality for a ridiculously affordable price. You may have noticed this as I’ve mentioned quite a few of their products on here lately but truth is I just really like them.
So… Wear Berries is not your typical berry shade, I would say. It’s a bit more on the plum/purple side, but nevertheless it is a gorgeous shade for fall. The finish of this lipstick is not entirely matte but it’s not glossy either. I’d say it’s somewhere in between and probably more of a satin finish if that makes any sense. Sorry, I’m just not the best at describing those things. However, I really do like the formula. It feels quite moisturizing on my lips and it’s not drying at all, which is pretty awesome since it’s getting a lot colder now and I know a lot of you probably have problems with dry lips (including myself). You just don’t want your lips to look messy and dry, so this is definitely a plus.
The packaging is fairly simple. It comes in a sleek black tube and in the middle of it there’s a stripe of the color of the actual lipstick. I’d say it even comes quite close to how the lipstick actually looks on your lips.
Here’s a swatch.
And this is how it looks on the lips.
I’ve really been liking this lipstick and even though it is quite the bold color there’s just something about this lipstick, which makes it very wearable throughout day time for me. I love how you can just quickly smack some of this on your lips without making a huge mess. It lasts a fair share amount of time, so you don’t have to constantly reapply it.
If you’re looking to try out different lipstick shades for fall I’d definitely recommend this one as it’s a lovely color and very affordable.
Have you tried any Essence lipsticks? What did you think?
