Essence - Next Stop Summer LE

Hello! Summer is coming over super fast and Essence always has the funkiest limited editions for this season! This years Next Stop Summer LE includes a couple of bright and vibrant products and I have tried two of their lip products - colour changing lipstick. Check out my thoughts and musings about the duo!

Both lipsticks have the usual plastic packaging. They include 4 grams of product and they should last you 12 months. They have dangerous looking shades - one of them is purple and stains a bit deeper than the lighter mint green lipstick.

The shades may seem very unnatural but these two are actually just subtly colouring my lips. They don't really give of purple or mint coloring, but rather a vesrion of pink.

I have both available shades - 01 wish i was a mermaid and 02 little miss sunshine. Both of these apply as a sheer pink on the lips. I have not taken any lip swatches as both of these are very subtle and natural looking, so they are not that visible at all. Also they stain my lips pretty similary, maybe shade 02 a bit more deep pink. I have tried to build up the shades a bit, but on me that really didn't work as I layered the product a bit but felt it too sticky than. 

The texture is however very pleasant if you don't layer it too much. It feels light and moisturizing and not sticky at all. Trying to build up shade just didn't work for me though, so I would wear this more like a  lightly colouring lip balm.  The finish is shiny and after it dries dow it leaves a slight pink stain. Still, on me this looks both bright pink and still quite natural. The shades on me seem to adapt well and don't strike out neon pink at all.

Along with the two lipsticks I also got a bag tag for my suitcase and stickers.  I like the tag, because the material is really soft and well made, doesn't seem cheap at all! Also it's bright and you can spot in an instant!

Hope this short review was useful to you! I like the light texture of the lipsticks and will use them in summer time for sure! Though they are more like coloured lip balms than usual lipsticks, they will be fun to use! Easy to apply, no blending and no mirror needed!

Perfect summer essentials for a quick pick me up "no make up" makeup look!

Thanks for reading!
