essence cosmetics Vibrant Shock lipsticks in No to Mainstream and Rave It Up!

Bold and edgy lip shades are my obsession lately. If you look at my last few purchases, you’ll be greeted by a sea of teal, blue and purple lipsticks that really make a statement. But you know what is REALLY exciting? When you find those shades in a high-quality lipstick formula for UNDER $5!

That’s right, the new essence cosmetics Vibrant Shock lipsticks come in four eccentric shades and the formula is spot-on. All for $3.99 USD/$4.49 CAD.

The first shade I picked up is Rave It Up. This is a beautiful deep purple matte that goes on fairly evenly and is very comfortable. You only need one swipe for full opacity which is hard to do (even MAC can’t get this right most of the time).

In natural daylight, this looks almost like MAC’s Cyber or Smoked Purple (but not as dark). It leans a little cooler than NARS Train Bleu and is definitely not as drying.

The other shade I grabbed is called No to Mainstream and I am in love! This teal peacock shade is stunning and goes on even smoother than the purple.

And if you don’t think you can pull of a shade like this, I guarantee you can do it!

Apologies for the mobile phone pics, my DSLR died!

Even better news is that essence cosmetics is currently running a free shipping promo (in the US) for Easter weekend! These shades are still in stock online, which is more than I can say for in store.
