My experience with Essence lipstick:

It does have a similar light, sweet fragrance like other lipsticks from the range, it's nothing strong that will disturb any sensitive nose. the fragrance starts to fade slowly say after about 30 minutes.
Color & Pigmentation:
I had to apply minimum three coats of it, to get the true color but i tell you i don't mind layering it as the formula is really moisturising and hydrating to the lips and it does not even get cake-y. I am not sure about too much dark pigmentation, but it certainly covers light to medium level of lip pigmentation to a very good extent with three layers.
The color pay off of this shade is quite decent considering it has a sheer formula.

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 slighly, 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.
2. Light sweet fragrance
3. Pretty pinky-brown nude shade, good for everyday wear
4. Decent pigmentation in three swipes
5. Light weight feel
6. Keeps lips soft and moisturized
7. Smooth and even application
8. Covers lip pigmentation decently
2. Transfers, does not survive meal
Verdict: 46 Fashionista is a pretty muted pink-y brown nude shade, which i am sure is going to look on all skin tones. It's a very flattering shade for everyday wear or office time. The formula is sheer but it does gives decent color payoff in three swipes. Overall a pretty everyday shade which would suit most of the skin tones, decent quality, affordable pricing, Only i wish if the lasting duration was a bit longer but i really can't complaint for the pricing it's available :) Recommended!
* Do check out other three shades from the range, which i have already reviewed: 52 In The Nude, 53 All About Cupcake, 40 Look At Me.
