My Experience with the Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick 03 Wow Effect says,
The essence matt lipsticks are very lightweight and comfortable on lips. They all dry down to a matte finish and have a light and creamy texture. The lipstick glides evenly across the lips without tugging. They are not even drying. They all offer a good color payoff. Talking about the shade of a lipstick, I don’t like to wear pink lipsticks much but I love this shade, which I would classify as a kind of berry nude shade. It is distinctly pink, not so bright, not too light. It is just super wearable. This berry mauve shade makes me look more dramatic with cool toned eyes.

The Essence lipstick has a sweet berry-like fragrance with no noticeable taste on lips. Wear time is decent but not that good. It lasts about 2-3 hours without drinking or eating. After having a proper meal, the lipstick wearing off from the middle of lips, while the outline of lipstick is visible around the lips! Essence matte lipsticks represent an affordable version as they are drugstore brand and the price is beyond cheap. The colors of essence matt lipsticks are really gorgeous and beautiful.
