My experience with Essence lipstick:


Packaging:


The lipstick comes in a regular essence color coded, round lipstick case, 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 the cap locks in properly, i think it's good enough for the price we get these lipsticks.

Fragrance:


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:


46 Fashionista is a muted pink-y brown color(more pink less brown). It's lovely shade for everyday wear or office wear, that will add sophistication to the overall look. How this lipstick shade will look on you, also depends on your natural lip color as the formula is sheer. I am lately loving these kind of sheer coverage lipsticks, as they look really pretty, juicy and more natural as they let your natural lip color peep through them.

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.

Texture & Finish:


The lipstick has a sheer formula with light creme texture, which helps with the easy application without any tugging or pulling. It 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. I like this kind of finish where your natural lip color can slightly peek through specially if it's neutral or natural shade.

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.

Affordability:


I love how these lipsticks are available at such reasonable prices, without any compromise in the quality. They are good quality and so budget friendly buy.

Pros:


1. Decent packaging
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

Cons:


1. Not long lasting
2. Transfers, does not survive meal

Overall Rate:

3.9/5

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 Cupcake40 Look At Me.
