Essence Stay With Me Lipgloss - Review

Hey Everyone!

It has been ages since I last did a post! If you follow me on twitter you probably know why but I won't go into it now! This is a review of a lovely little lipgloss I came across recently by Essence! It looks like this..

So to start off it is a bargain as I bought it for €1.99. It has really nice packaging, nothing too fancy but it's a nice size and I quite like the design. It has a strange little applicator, not the usual doe foot type, it looks like this.. 

I can't really see any particular benefits to this applicator, it's not awful but I think a regular doe foot would be fine if not better. So on to the actual gloss, I really like it! I was so impressed with the pigmentation, it's not something you get with a lot of cheaper glosses. Often they are pigmented in the packaging but not when they are applied, this wasn't the case with this though! The quality is definitely more reminiscent of what you would expect from more expensive gloss. Here is a swatch...

As usual my picture taking skills are letting me down but I hope you can see the kind of result this lipgloss gives! As well as this it also lives up to it's long lasting claims, something that also doesn't often happen with cheaper glosses. It stayed well for me while drinking and eating and didn't need reapplication for about 2 hours. 

So overall I was really impressed and would definietly recommend it! Such a fabulous gloss for under €2!

Hope you enjoyed this review!
