Hey My Cherries,
How is your week going so far? To dazzle up the rather dull and boring weekdays, i have a shimmery lipstick to review today on the blog. Do you gals like shimmer on your lips?

My take on this Lipstick:

Packaging:

Essence Lipstick shade 40 Look at me  comes in a color coded round lipstick case. It has a transparent plastic ring in the center on which the brand name is engraved in silver. Essence logo is embossed on the top of the cap, whereas shade name and number are provided on the bottom.
Overall the case is light weight, locks in properly and very cute!

Fragrance:

The lipstick has sweet fragrance that somehow reminds of those chewy toffees i used to gulp when i was a little kid :) (which i don't want to eat anymore) Okay on a serious note the scent is neither too strong nor very light, it stays for some good 20 minutes and goes off as you start to drink or eat. I have a sensitive nose but i don't mind light fragrance in my lip products but yeah i don't want to smell like a kid's toffee for sure.

Color & Texture:

Essence lipstick shade 40 Look at Me is a Nude-y Taupe shade with silvers shimmers packed in it. It is the first time when i have tried such high on shimmer lipstick. The shade is not at all dark but it is high on shimmer, not meant for every day purpose for sure. The silver shimmers present in this gives it a frosty look. This kind of lipstick surely gives you a sexy fuller pout effect but it is recommended to exfoliate your lips well else it is so going to highlight that patchy dry skin. I have this confused status currently with this shade, i think i need to use it for a few looks. But i definitely don't hate this. The lipstick has creme texture that makes it glide on the lips. It is very moisturizing and keep lips well hydrated as long as it is on! But i noticed this kind of melts in it's case (just like the other one i reviewed earlier here) so i have to keep this in my fridge else the bullet can really break. Though it does not melt when it's on my lips rather it feels really comfortable.

Pigmentation & Finish:

'40 Look at Me' delivers full coverage in two swipe which is pretty impressive. On opening it for first time, my first thought was, It might wash me out. But this shade instantly brightens up the complexion(don't ask me how but it does :p) still i wish it had less of those silver shimmer in this. As i said earlier it gives lips frosty shimmery finish, i am kind of okay with this kind of finish i mean it is nice but nothing that can amaze me. I think, it's all about one personal taste when it comes to the kind of finish you like. In my case it's my first time when i have tried a frosty shimmer packed lipstick, am not fond of this kind of finish but i like how it looks on me(if that makes sense to you :D)

Lasting Duration:

The lipstick has an average wear time, say about 3 hours and when it fades off(when you eat or drink) it leaves all those shimmers on the lips itself which for obvious reason does not appear nice and looks muddy too.


Affordability:

Other than the wear time everything else about this lipstick is impressive and looking at the price this is available in market it surely is easy on pocket and good quality.
