Hello lovelies :)
December is quickly aproaching and with it the holiday season. That means a lot of holiday sets and limited edition items in make up. This year Essence came out with the Come to Town trend edition, which just hit the stores a few days ago here in Slovenia. The lipstick I am reviewing today was the only item that really sparked my attention in this collection (and a nail polish set, but currently I am convincing myself that I do not need any more nail polish). I had a chance to see the collection live at the Essence & Catrice event and I decided to grab the lipstick then and there, since I usually miss all of the trend collections.
The lipstick comes in a pretty standart Essence lipstick packaging, but this time the packaging is the same colour as the lipstick, the name of the lipstivk is written at the bottom of the tube on a sticker. While the packaging is not my favourite, because I think that it is a bit too bulky, it does it's job well and will not break while traveling. there is 3,8g / 0.13 oz. of lipstick.
The lipstick is pink, with a hint of purple in it. The formula is not that different than their longlasting lipstick formula, but I have a feeling that is this lipstick is just a bit more creamier and mosturizing. It applies nicely, without streakyness or draging and is comfortable to wear. It lasts on me for about 5 hours without eatng and with minimal drinking. It also does not feather outside the lip line, but so far none of the lipstick I own did that. When it rubbs off it leaves a sheer pinkish stain behind.
All in all I really like this lipstick, it is a nice addition to my lipstick collection, since I do not have much pink lipsticks. If you enjoy Essence longlasting lipsticks and like this colour I think you won't be disappointed.
Come to Town collection also came with two nailpolish sets. If you are interested in the Naughty or Nice set you can click here to read Taya's review and see swatches of each nail polish.
Did you get anything from the Come to Town collection?Have a nice day :)
