In their new collection for spring/ summer 2018, Essence naturally came out with a bunch of new lipsticks and lipglosses. I decided to try a few! By now I have been able to put these on my lips to see how they feel, look and wear. For this review, I have grouped all 5 lipsticks together as I felt the individual lipsticks didn’t warrant their individual reviews. Since we have quite a few things to talk about, let’s dive straight in.

I love a good red lip and lately I have completely falling back in love with the iconic lipstick shade. Sometimes a gal just has to release her inner Marilyn Monroe! It was all instigated by a Catrice lipstick purchase, which is of course featured in this video. And that is why I thought it would be fun to show you every. single. shade. of red that I own. There are over 30 lipsticks here, so let’s get crackin’.

Whenever Catrice releases new lipsticks I’m on it like a hot spell. The reason? In general, Catrice makes some of my favorite lipsticks at the drugstore. Their Ultimate Colour range was my first love, but currently I am loving the Ultimate Matt line. So when the brand released a new line of matte lipsticks in their S/S 2018 collection, I knew I had to try. Meet the Matt Lover lipstick pens.

You all know about my love for unusual lip colors right? So what about a straight up taupe? Named OG Ghoulist, this is a liquid lipstick cult classic by LA Splash. And the name couldn’t be more apt: this greyish toned brown is definitely not for the faint of heart.

I am not over the liquid lipstick trend. I just love a lipstick that lasts all day and doesn’t need any touching up. Especially in the spring and summer time, liquid lipsticks are my go to. The lipsticks won’t bleed, come in unusual colors and wear all day. These are my 7 favorite liquid lipsticks, both in color and formula.

Catrice’s new products are here! And they have come out with a bunch of new lip products. So in round one of reviewing the new goodies I showed in my video last week, I thought it would be good to start off with the lipstick I wasn’t able to show you in full then. Say hello to the new Pure Pigments Lip Lacquers.

It had been a while since I was last intrigued by a Catrice limited edition collection. Most of them were a bit meh and it hasn’t been since last summer that I found some products I liked in their seasonal limited edition collections. But 2018 is off to a good start with their new Dazzle Bomb limited edition. Sadly, this was released just days before New Year’s Eve. I think this sparkly collection would have better suited a release before the holidays, not when they are almost over. Oh well, this a little bit of glitter can never do no wrong, so let’s have a closer look.
