Budget Beauty | Essence Lipstick In Barely There

I'm pretty sure most people in the blogging world are a sucker for a budget beauty buy. Recently I have discovered the brand Essence, and I just had to blog about it. I'll definitely be doing more posts on budget beauty, because personally I love reading them. Anyway, I'd heard a lot of craze over Essence and had seen the stand in my local Wilkinsons and wondered what all the fuss was about. They have such a range of products which are so reasonable its incredible. I'd been on the hunt for a nude pink lipstick for a long time, but hadn't found one I liked. Until I spotted this beauty, which is there lipstick in Barley There! 

There lipsticks are £2.30, which is incredibly reasonable I was so impressed. The colour is drifting towards your typical Kylie Jenner lip, however a lot more natural. Its a very dark pinky nude, I can only describe it as your lips but better. It applies so nicely, and is extremely hydrating! I was so impressed with how much hydration this has, its not drying on the lips at all and doesn't cling to any dry patches you may have. Its so easy to apply, Its quite a sheer formula, but I really like that as it gives a nice natural glow to this lips. Eating and drinking isn't a problem, as you don't get left with an awkward lipstick mark or have to worry about it smudging across your face as it fades naturally, and you'd be able to reapply without using a mirror in my opinion. If you're looking for a natural looking lipstick, I'd highly recommend you go and give this a try! I am so impressed for the price and will definitely be going back to check out more of Essences products.
