Essence launched a new range of liquid lipsticks and I wanted to give them a try. They have launched 10 shades and I got 7 of them. Today, I am reviewing the shade ’07 Bite Me if You Can’.
Price: €3 for 8 ml
These liquid lipsticks offer high colour pigmentation and a breathtaking, glossy finish reminiscent of melted latex. thanks to the high pigmentation and liquid texture, the lipstick glides over the lips and offers perfect coverage with just one application. available in a cool tube design and a varied colour range.

My Experience with Essence Colour Boost Vinylicious Liquid Lipstick 07 Bite Me if You Can:
Let’s start with the packaging. It come in a plastic tube. The colour of the tube is the same colour as the lipstick inside. This makes picking the right colour easy as one does not need to read the name or number. This is especially a plus point if you own more than one of these.
All tubes have a black screw-on cap. They are very secure and also easy to open and close. Perfect to travel with! I initially thought that the tube would have a small opening to apply the product but it comes with an application wand. This was a pleasant surprise.
The wand is quite strong and gives that support to apply the lipstick all over, especially on the edges without any mistakes. The felt applicator at the tip is hourglass shaped and works well during the application. The liquid lipstick itself smells a little like paint. The stink is one thing I hated. But surprisingly, the stink varies in levels for different colours. But one can notice the smell. Thankfully, the smell does not last long. It disappears after a few minutes.
One more thing I liked about these liquid lipsticks is the fact that they have no shimmer or glitter. The look glossy but not due to the shimmer or glitter. They do not feel sticky or slippery on the lips. They also feel comfortable on the lips. They do transfer when eating and even more when drinking. The liquid lipstick is very easily transferable which is kind of expected.
I would carry it along when I use it so that I can reapply as per the need. The reapplication is definitely needed. With this lipstick, it’s better not go overboard as it might land on the teeth. So it’s better to use the finger trick to avoid transferring on to the teeth. With lighter shades the application can turn out to be streaky.
One has to go over the lips with the wand for non-streaky application. The colour is also well pigmented and the payoff is good. The shiny glossy latex finish lasts for 2 hours or so after which it slightly fades. I guess it’s normal and acceptable too (at least for me).
This is a blood red colour. I absolutely loved the colour when swatched and also on the lips. I am dusky and this shade suited me very well. This colour would suit all skin tones as it’s red and everyone should own a red lipstick. This would be a perfect buy for red shade lovers like me. I have so many red shades but never stop buying them.
Overall, it’s a highly pigmented lipgloss. It’s not really a liquid lipstick. But for that price, I do not think it’s fair to complain. I personally would not prefer wearing such latex effect lipstick to the office but would prefer so much for the evening or night parties. These are also perfect for the colourful Indian weddings or festivals.
