My Experience Essence 02 All You Need Is Red Longlasting Lipstick:
The lipstick comes in a simple round matte black tube. The tube has color-coded ring at the neck for identification of shade from stash during rush hours. The shade details are written at the base of the tube. The cap of the tube shuts with a satisfactory click. The lipstick is regular bullet shaped. The essence logo is embossed on the lateral side of the bullet. This embossed logo on the lipstick looks classy. The same logo is embossed on the top of the cap. Overall, the packaging of the lipstick is simple, decent and travel-friendly.
All you need is red is a gorgeous red shade. It has neutral undertones. The shade will suit most of the Indian skin tones. Though the shade looks deeper in the bullet but the lipstick is a way too sheer in a single swipe. You need to apply multiple swipes to get rich colour.
The pigmentation of the lipstick is average. So, it feels little bit heavy and uncomfortable on the lips. The texture of the lipstick is super creamy and it tends to glide on the lips so smoothly. I like its soft and creamy texture. The lipstick glides on the lips without any tugging or pulling. It does not cling to dry patches of the lips. It keeps the lips moisturized. It does not settle into the fine lines of the lips. The lipstick does not bleed at all. The lipstick gives a beautiful satiny look to the lips. It gives a semi matte finish to the lips. The lip colour is subtle and perfect for daily wear.
It fades away evenly without staining the lips. The lipstick does not dry out the lips. The staying power of the lipstick is low. It lasts for 3-3.5 hours only, may be due to its creamy texture. Overall, the texture of the lipstick is good but pigmentation could have been better.

Will I Repurchase/Recommend Essence 02 All You Need Is Red Longlasting Lipstick?
Yes, I like its creamy formula and this shade will suit a lot of Indian skin tones. But if you are searching for intensive red lipstick then definitely it is not the one. There are far better options available in the market.
