My experience with this lipstick:

Packaging:

All about Cupcake comes in a cute pink color round lipstick case. It has a transparent plastic ring in the center, where 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 because it is Pink, so obvious :)

Fragrance:

First thing that takes your attention after the cute looks is the fragrance. It has sweet eclair scents that makes me want to eat this :P Okay on a serious note the scent is strong that captures your attention as soon as you open the case. But it is not too overpowering. This stays for some time when you apply the lipstick and fades afterwards. I have a sensitive nose but i like sweet scents sometimes in my lip products!

Color & Texture:

53 All about Cupcake is a soft, subtle and very pretty cool tone sweet Pink shade. 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! You won't really need a lip balm underneath as it's very moisturizing on it's own. But i noticed this kind of melts in it's case so i have to keep this not in my lipstick stash but in fridge. Mind you i said that melting thing only for it's case, i did not find any bleeding issues when it is on lips otherwise. On lips it feels really comfortable, light and pampers like a balm.
But i like keeping my lipsticks in the stash and i have to keep it in the fridge instead( specially when the weather is really hot) ahhh i don't like that!!



Right swatch: 1 coat, Left swatch: 2 coat (in white light)

Pigmentation & Finish:

'All about Cupcake' delivers decent coverage in single swipe which can be build by layering more if you wish to have more intensity. But the color looks pretty both ways either its subtle or layered for an intense color! I like how it feels on the lips and the natural finish it delivers with a subtle glossy shine.

Lasting Duration:

Being a creme texture lipstick, it disappoints when it comes to wear time as it transfers on everything that your lips touch making it fade. This stays for maximum 2-2.5 hour when you don't eat anything. So yes one need to check in the mirror now and then for a touch up!

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.
