Hey girls,
I mentioned in my latest haul video that I finally jumped on the essence bandwagon and picked up some of their Stay With Me, Longlasting Lipglosses. I had a couple of girls on Twitter asking me how I have been liking them so I decided to do some swatches and a little review of my thoughts on them.
I have absolutley fallen in love with these non sticky, slightly pigmented glosses. I don't know how "longlasting" they are but they are perfect for applying over lipsticks to give a little extra gloss. They are also super affordable at only $4 each so you can practically have all seven colours if you wanted. The colour range isn't amazing but all of the shades that are avaliable, I love! I have personally only picked up three so I will be basing my review on only those colours but I definitley plan on picking up some more when I get the opportunity. 
"My Favourite Milkshake" is a light coral cream colour that looks great over a nude lipstick to give it some colour, an orange lipstick to enhance the coral tones or by itself for a hint of orange lips. 
"Candy Bar" is a lolly red colour that really enhances a red lipstick or alone gives you a lovely glossy red tint.
 "Me & My Icecream" is my personal favourite because it is so versatile! I can wear it over every lipstick I have but I prefer to wear it alone because it gives such a gorgeous light pink gloss to my lips.

You can purchase essence products from Target and Priceline. They are such an affordable makeup line but the quality is suprisingly good for the price you pay. My overall opinion of their Stay With Me glosses is that I don't really think they are "longlasting" but they are a really great gloss to layer with lipsticks or wear alone. They have quite good pigmentation, a smooth formula and a pretty glossy finish. I definitley plan to purchase the colours "Trendsetter" and "I Love Cotton Candy" but might also pick up a couple of others.

Thank you so much for reading
