Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss Matte Effect 15 Coral Mousse

torek, september 02, 2014


I love the old Stay Matt Lip Creams. Love. And Essence being, well, them, went ahead and changed the formula. Or at least it's a different formula just for this shade. I just can't wrap my head around it. Coral Mousse is a new shade that was launched when the originals were revamped, but I've only recently picked it up, because it wasn't available in my country. Honestly, I expected more.

Texture and pigmentation: It is oily. Where has the creaminess of the originals gone Essence? Or is it just this shade that has such a slippery formula? This particular shade also never dries to a matte finish and it stays creamy as well as oily on the lips. Why did they put a label Matt Effect on it if it's clearly a creamy liquid lipstick? The pigmentation is actually lovely and it's nicely pigmented with one swipe. At least they got one thing right.


Colour: It is completely different of the lips than in the tube. In the tube it looks darker and pinker with almost no peachiness. But on the lips it's clearly a peach shade, well, a desaturated peachy-pink-nude. It's a very decent everyday shade that is kind of a your-lips-but-better, but in a peachy way. Obviously, on anyone that is darker than me (NC/W15) it will look lighter.


Staying power: It's ok, but not as long lasting as the deeper shades of the old formula. It stays on for a number of hours, but disappears completely if you eat or drink.

Packaging: It the same long thin tube as of the rest XXXL line and has the same long flat applicator, which I find clumsy.


Price and availability: I believe this shade is only available where those 3 m long Essence stands are. It cost 2.25 €.

I like the colour and it's a nice every day shade that will appeal to a lot of people, but I'm a bit bummed about the formula. It's not bad, but it's not like the old Stay Matt Lip Creams, at least the dark shades and the staying power is a lot poorer, however, it could just be because the shade is so light. Nonetheless, it a decent buy if you're on a budget, though for a truly matte and long-lasting option go for Bourjois Velvets.

Have a great day!

  1. Jaz imam ta nude odtenke v stari in novi verziji in je razlika v vseh barvah, na žalost :( So prijetni ampak ne tako kot prej (so nas preveč razvadili) :D

    1. Eh, sem točno to sumila :/ Kaj je bilo treba menjat formulo, no. Stari so bili perfektni :)

  2. Jaz sem najprej mislila, da bodo vsi odtenki novi, ampak je potem šlo samo za spremembo formule in pakiranja. Bv. Na koncu sem se odločila, da bom kar preskočila in tvoja ocena me samo še bolj prepriča, da sem se prav odločila. Čeprav odtenek ti pa res lepo pristaja. :)

    1. Tako lepo priložnost so imeli, da uvedejo več novih odtenkov in vse kar jim je uspelo je poslabšati izdelek.
      Hvala :)

  3. Odtenek mi je všeč, ampak mi verjetno formula ne bi bila. Škoda, da ukinjajo ravno tiste dobre stvari.

    1. Ta oljni občutek na ustnicah je čuden, čeprav se navadiš. Škoda, da ni tako kremen kot stare verzije.

    1. Hvala :)
      Pač tekoča šminka. Jaz bi raje, da bi se posušila mat.

  7. Sem ravno danes kupila enak odtenek. Ko sem stala pred izdelki sem bila razočarana glede izbora barv, ampak sem vseeno vzela nekaj kar izgleda najmanj roza in bolj nude. Sem imela doma šok terapijo, kako roza izgleda, ampak kot praviš na ustnicah je veliko bolj breskvast. Še zdaj se ne morem odločiti, če mi je odtenek všeč ali ne.:) Formula pa res ni ne vem kaj.
