Essence Stay Matt Lip Cream

I received this lip cream in the shade 02 Smooth Berry, which is a beautiful deep pink and red mix shade, exactly what I like because I enjoy shades of red as lip make up. The lip cream comes in a small tube which is clear so you can see the cream colour which you're getting, while the lid is a beautiful silver lid which I thought was top cute. 

As soon as you open the lip cream tube, you get a lovely sweet vanilla scent which is so dreamy, I really love the scent, it's light and not overwhelming but you know it's there! The part I really like about this lip cream, is that it's quite a creamy lip cream, it's not thick or sticky but it's creamy in texture, and just one swipe of this lip cream will leave lips in a beautiful even lip colour. 

This lip cream is meant to be matte, which is quite an effect it gives lips. I find it to be semi matte on my lips, but my friends say it's much more matte to them. The lip cream glides on lips with ease and gives lips a lovely matte colour. The gloss is very intense and the 02 Sooth Berry is quite a dramatic colour. I would compare this gloss as a much much more affordable Glossy Stain, because the colour pigments are very rich and stay on lips for quite some time, while the glossy fades into a matte finish. 

I would really recommend you give this lip cream a try, it comes in quite a few shades which you can try, plus the lip cream is like a cream lipstick which sets in a matte finish. This lip cream doesn't dry out lips, nor does it make lips feel uncomfortable. It's perfect for every lady and should be everyone's budget matte lip cream! Mainly because everyone is going for a matte look now days.
