Fluffy Little Pick Of The Week: Essence Stay With Me Long-lasting Lipgloss

 Smooth, non-sticky, shimmer free and packed with pigment, these glosses are my latest love. From their cute packaging and vivid colours to their balmy texture, with these high-performing lovelies you get so, so much bang for so, so little buck(s).

Berry Me on the lips
I was impressed with the colour and the longer than average wear time – this stayed on my lips for at least a couple of hours, which is great for a gloss, before fading to a lovely berry stain. It tastes and smells fruity, which I also like.

L-R: Candy Bar, Me & My Ice-Cream and My Favourite Milkshake

To me, the obvious comparison is with Lancome’s Juicy Tubes because, packaging aside, they deliver a similarly juicy, high-gloss finish - and with a thinner, less sticky consistency, too. They’ve also been compared to MAC’s Cremesheen Glass and Chanel’s Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss --  high praise indeed, considering these Essence glosses carry a tiny price tag of just €2.49.I was sent Me & My Ice-Cream which was guest reviewed by Magda here, and I purchased Berry Me for myself. I have a weakness for more neutral glosses so I deliberately went for a shade I don’t already own.  
Yes, you read that right -- just €2.49.
With 6 in the range to choose from, I’ll be picking up a handful the next time I pass an Essence stand.
