Essence stay matt lip cream- quick review

Another MUST HAVE of the Summer that is almost gone, but the colors I am about to show you are wearable in any season, any occasion.

This Fall is showing signs of some new, colorful trends and every single shade of red is going to be popular (like that's something new?!)
I bought Essence stay matt lip cream 
immediately after they hit the market with these beautiful and soft lip creams, first in color 03 Soft Nude, and after wearing it almost every day, I had to try 02 Smooth Berry.
So it was kind of love at first sight!

Packaging and application reminds of lip gloss. Product comes in volume of 4 ml and it's very practical to transport and have it with you anytime.
02 Smooth Berry really reminds of the color of cyclamen, it is very intense, vibrant color and will remain on your lips even after a meal (or if you talk a lot, like me...)
03 Soft Nude contains light dim brown pink shade that perfectly highlights the natural color of the lips. Plus smells great! Both of them.
As you can notice on the swatch, the texture is much drier than the sheer glosses or lipsticks, but still doesn't dry out the lips and it's easy to apply which is great if you love matte lipsticks (remember how, sometimes, when you apply matte lipstick your lips, after few minutes, look dehydrated? Happens a lots of times to me). The applicator is very precise and the lip cream doesn't smudge after hours of wearing. So you are mirror free :)

Pigmentation in both shades is excellent and long-lasting. On the photo above you can see the colors on direct sunlight. Both have satin, silky finish and beautiful fruity scent.

Really beautiful product that I'd recommend to everybody.
The only flaw are only 4 available shades. Hope Essence will launch more of them in some recent future.
Price is a trifle- only 2,4€ (in Croatia)

So, have you already tried Essence lip cream?
