Hey Dolls :)
I hope you are all having a fabulous day! As you might know, I am absolutely obsessed with Essence lip liners. Lately, I’ve seen a couple new ones at shoppers, so picked up those two shades to review: Wish me a rose & Satin mauve. Once again, the formula is incredible, and at $1.49 per liner, you really can’t go wrong with that.
Those two shades remind me a lot of the ones that I already own. Wish me a rose reminds me of Cute pink, and Satin mauve reminds me of soft berry. However, they’re definitely not identical.
|Wish Me a Rose|
First off, can I just say how adorable the name “Wish me a rose” is? I don’t know why, but unique names of cosmetics items play an essential role on whether I buy them or not. Silly, I know! Although this reminds me of Cute pink, they’re definitely different. Wish me a rose is slightly more rose shade and less Barbie pink, if that makes sense. It is a lot more vibrant and almost neonic. I’ve attached both swatches so you can decide for yourself.
Satin mauve, on the other hand is not really my cup of tea. I watched a YouTube video where a girl used this and it looked incredible on her. On me however, it makes my complexion look quite dull and vampire-like. Don’t get me wrong, I am all about the vampy look, but somehow, this just doesn’t do it for me. But then, like all lip liners, they’re not supposed to be worn by itself and I am sure with a slightly different lipstick, it would suit my skin tone better. I can totally see gals with deeper skin tone rocking this color. Compared to Soft berry, this shade is more brick-red than purple. Once again, below is a comparison photo of the two.
What do you think of those new shades? Have you tried Essence lip liners? Comment below and let me know what you think!
