Essence Lipstick in Soak Up The Sun – Review

Hello hello!

When I saw Essence’s Sun Kissed trend edition a few weeks ago I looked at the lipsticks, but did not pick them up because I’m not a lipstick person. When I went back to Shoppers I decided to get the darker colour to try it out, which is called Soak Up The Sun.

I had read the packaging when I first saw it and it says “lipstick – stains the skin“, and I kept wondering about the “stain” part, so that’s why I decided to grab it.

When you look at the product it does have a jelly squishiness feel to it which tells you that this will not be an opaque lipstick.

I expected this product to have a dark tint, but it applied more like a reddish pink and I was happily surprised with the result!

This product smells delicious, like berries, and it doesn’t really taste anything.

I find this product is more like a tinted lip balm than a lipstick and it lasts about one hour to an hour and a half before you need to reapply. I really like it and find it enhances my natural colour without being too much. I’m glad I decided to pick it up!

This product retails for $2.99 (CAD) and is a limited edition so if you want one for yourself I’d suggest you go buy one now! There is also an orange colour called Hello Summer!, but I did not pick that one up because orange do not look good on me.

What do you think, is this your kind of lip product?
