Anyway, onto the reviews of these products.
The first product I picked up was a lip gloss, a Stay With Me Longlasting Lip Gloss, in a deep pink berry shade called Berry Me. The colour is unlike anything I own and I adore it, and the formula has a pleasant smell as well, with the added benefit of not being too sticky. It even has a cute, and completely different style applicator that makes covering the full lid much more easy - I wouldn't know what to call an applicator such as this, possibly an hourglass applicator. This has to be applied in a thinner, rather than thicker coat of the gloss so you don't see splotchy, or uneven patches of colour. It looks quite pretty for a while, but eventually tends to fade out and leaving, a rim of colour around the edges of the lips, but still a glossy finish. If you don't mind reapplying every now and then, or a wearing it as gloss over a lipstick or lip liner, this is a perfect gloss!

So far, I have been impressed by the Essence products overall. I have also tried quick drying drops for nail polish, if anyone is interested in a review. The brand is fairly inexpensive, as I have not seen a product over $6AU yet, and are available in Australia from Target. I would highly recommend checking out their products!
