So not to be late with every product here is something new :) Essence brought 4 shades of Stay matt lip creams this February and I have one shade to show you today. And it's called Velvet rose.
Product picture :) These products are packaged as a lip gloss with the doe foot applicator but they are not glossy.
This is Velvet rose on my lips in the sun. It's a nice nude color maybe a little bit more pink than on my pictures. But that also depends on your skin tone and pigmentation of your lips. These are very pigmented and comfortable on the lips. They last a pretty long time even with drinking and lots of talking. They are not drying and they don't accentuate problematic parts of the lips.
This is the picture in the shade. My biggest problem with these is the smell, they smell of caramel and I don't like the smell. If you don't mind it when applying than it will be ok because you can't smell them when they are on the lips. Also I have a problem with reapplying these, they don't look good if I just add another layer so when it starts to fade out I take it off completely and then apply it again. I have another shade that I will show you some other time and I'm thinking about buying those other two colors also. What do you think do you prefer these or regular lip glosses?
