Drugstore Finds: Essence All About Cupcake Lipstick

Photo 12-30-13, 11 22 11 AMBrowsing around the makeup section has been very therapeutic for me. I enjoy going around, and discovering new products that are offered in our local counters. I must say that drugstore brands have improved a lot because they already offer many products that had made their way to many beauty junkies’ holy grail status list. A Holy Grail product is that one item you can’t live without, but it’s hard to come by.

Today, I want to share this lipstick called All About Cupcake from the Essence brand. I believe it was just last year when Essence came here in the Philippines. I already tried quite a few of their products, and I can say that they do not disappoint. I have reviewed the Essence Eyeshadow Quattro in To Die For, and it is surely one of their items I highly recommend!

Essence says: lovely lips: intense and subtle shades guarantee a fabulous splash of color on your lips. the color-coded packaging in the exact same color as the lipstick makes reaching for your favorite shade even easier.

I have used this a lot, because I leave it inside my office drawer. It is perfect for touch-ups and if I want more moisture on my lips. It doesn’t have any glitters or shimmers, but it has a satin, glossy finish. It is not a long-wear lipstick, because of its texture, but it is very comfortable to wear, and it is perfect for everyday.

Essence has a variety of colors on their lipsticks, but only a few does not have glitters. This product is not a must-have but if you want to save some money but still look pretty, you may want to check this out! :)

      Tama, better buy the long-lasting ones. This is one of my impulse buys, good thing I liked it but will no longer repurchase. 😀

    Looks great on you and I definitely love the color! :)
    Although this is very affordable and it looks tempting, I still prefer lipsticks that lasts long and would no longer require touch ups every now and then. Hehe.

    Great review though! 😀
