My experience with Essence lipstick 52 In the Nude:



Packaging:


The lipstick comes in a regular essence color coded casing, with shade number and name provided on the bottom, whereas other information are provided on a white sticker on the cap. The packaging of the lipstick is decent and cap locks in properly, i think it's good enough for the price we get these lipsticks.

Color & Pigmentation:


52 In The Nude shade as can be guessed from the name, is a nude shade lipstick. Its a light nude color with a slightly peach-y undertone to it. I got this shade particularly because i have the lipliner from the range in this shade, which looks like a perfect nude on my lips but the lipstick shade is actually lighter than the lipliner. How this lipstick shade will look on you, lot depends on your natural lip color. It delivers sheer coverage to the lips which can be build up by layering it twice or thrice. Even with the three times swipe the lipstick is not going to cover too dark pigmentation as the formula is sheer but i like how it somehow neutralizes the dark pigmentation. I like to use the Essence 11 In the Nude lipliner underneath this lipstick to conceal any pigmentation from showing up. If you have too much pigmentation on your lips, i would recommend you to use a little bit of concealer before applying this lipstick.

Overall it gives a decent color payoff in two-three swipes but it does not looks bad with one coat either.

On my lips, when i apply it alone the color looks more like a pale nude shade and with the lipliner underneath it looks like a proper nude shade with way better color payoff. I like it both ways :) also i noticed this shade kind of enhances the golden undertone of my complexion which looks good but on the contrary may also focus the under eye dark circles more(in case if you have) so one should to be conscious about that.

Texture & Finish:


The lipstick has a sheer formula with creme texture, which helps with the easy application and also keeps the lips soft and moisturised. So yes you don't really need a lip balm  separately with this. It delivers a moisture creme finish with a sheen. I like this kind of finish where your natural lip color can slightly peek through specially if it's neutral or nude shade. I noticed that overly applying this lipstick makes it settles into the lip lines.. so be conscious about that!

Fragrance:


It does have a similar sweet fragrance like other lipsticks from the range but it's nothing strong..it's sweet and light which fades after some time.


Lasting Stay:


As the lipstick has a sheer formula, is creme-y so it lacks on the lasting front. It does transfer also. The lipstick on its own stays for about 1.5 hour, survives one or two drinks though fades slightly but this will fade after the meal or food. So yes a touch up or reapplication will be needed though you can slightly extend the wear time of this lipstick by wearing a lipliner underneath.

Pros:


1. Decent packaging
2. Light sweet fragrance
3. Pretty shade
4. Decent pigmentation in two-three swipes
5. Light weight feel
6. Keeps lips soft and moisturized
7. Smooth and even application
8. Slightly neutralizes lip pigmentation


Cons:


1. Not a shade for you, if you have too much dark pigmentation on lips
2. Poor lasting time
3. Transfers, does not survive meal



Overall Rate:

3.5/5

Verdict: 52 In the Nude shade is a light nude shade with a hint of peach to it. The formula is sheer but it does gives decent color payoff in three swipes, i like how it slightly neutralizes the darkness. Overall a decent nude shade for nude lipstick lovers but make sure to apply a nude lipliner underneath, as it will not only helps the lipstick to stay longer but also helpful to cover up dark pigmentation.
