My Experience With Essence 04 Poshi Pink Glossy Stick Lip Colour:
The glossy stick range from Essence has around five pretty colors to choose from. The Poshi Pink shade is the fourth prettiest color among the five. Even though I am more of a matte lipstick person, the glossy stick fared better than their velvet matte sticks. Unlike the Essence Velvet Stick Matt Lip Colour this doesn’t bleed or transfer like crazy.
This is one reason I would definitely prefer the glossy stick over the velvet matte stick. The look of the glossy stick is exactly the same as Essence Cherry Crash Velvet Stick Matt Lip Colour, which I’ve reviewed earlier. The packaging of Poshi Pink Glossy Stick Lip Colour is color-coded and the tip of the stick is quite long. I like the packaging and the stick reminds me of Colorbar Take Me As I am Lipstick.
The texture of the glossy stick is creamy and would glide easily on the lips in first go. Even though it’s a glossy stick it looks more like a semi-matte stick, which appears dull with a slight hint of shine. I don’t feel the need to apply a lip balm before this stick as it perfectly hydrates and moisturises my lips. The color is well pigmented, and since it is glossy, it has a hint of shine in it.
It is a bright shade of pink, which is very apt for summers. I feel bright pink lip colors complement a yellow outfit well. If you are planning to wear a yellow outfit some time, this lip color would perfectly match your dress. It is perfect for both day and night makeup looks.
Moreover, this shade makes my lips appear fuller. It does transfer a little but not badly. It also leaves a beautiful stain, so even if it fades a little, it will still make your lips look naturally pink. It stays for good 4 to 5 hours but not more than that. You can make it last on your lips for around five hours but it will eventually fade away.
The staying power is decent but I wish it stayed a little longer. Some of you may find sharpening the pencil a little tricky but Lakme Dual Sharpener works fine for me. It gets blunt easily after a couple of uses and you may have to sharpen it again for the next use. Overall, I like the color and the quality it delivers. I feel it’s worth a try as it is very budget-friendly.
