MY 2 CENTS
I got this little gem in the Swag Bag I received at Toronto Life 25 Most Stylish People party a couple of weeks ago. After a bad experience with their I Love Extreme mascara, Essence is just a brand I wrote off but I’m really impressed with their Stay Matt Lip Creams.
Silky Red is so intense in color, opaque in coverage, and matte in finish. It’s a really gorgeous holiday red that’s comfortable to wear and feels soft and smooth on the lips.
I get over 4hrs wear time before my lips start to dry out and need to apply a clear balm.
For only $2.99, I really suggest you give these lip creams a try! There’s 3 available in Canada and I’m going to run out to buy the other 2.
