Essence Longlasting Lipstick | Review and Swatches

Hello! So today I want to introduce you to one of my favourite lipsticks that I've been using in fall time A LOT - the Essence longlasting lipstick in the colour 04 on the Catwalk!
If I should describe this lipstick in one word I would say - AMAZING! This lipstick is one of the ten available colours of their new longlasting Lipstick collection. I bought this lipstick at the thought of using it during fall time.
Packaging
I'm sure you can see from the image above just how wonderful this lipstick is.
It comes in a pretty discreet black matte packaging with a thin line in the colour of lipstick all around. The label with the name is also in the same colour as the lipstick. If you turn the lipstick out you can see the well-known "E" stamped.

Formula/Texture
First I thought this lipstick would be really heavy as a colour. But applying it on my lips it covers my lips without looking too heavy and harsh. Sadly it doesn't stay very long about 2-3 hours on me, but I don't mind reapplying it. I would recommend using a lip liner in addition.

Colour
Like I said above - the lipstick is available in 9 other colours from a classic red to a pretty cotton candy colour. I picked up the 04 - On The Catwalk! which is a pretty dark red with a burgundy undertone. I wasn't expecting it to look so well on the lips because first I thought it would be a bit too dark. It was quite the contrary!

Price
I bought this lipstick for CHF 3.37 here in Switzerland what is really cheap I think for such a pretty lipstick.
I did a bit of research about where you can buy Essence Makeup and find out that Essence just launched in the UK. From this month Essence Makeup will be available in several Wilkinson stores!
What I think
This is a really good, definitely not pricey drugstore lipstick which I recommend to everyone. I'm looking forward to buy other colour from their Essence Longlasting Lipstick Collection.

The Round-Up
Pros:
 - The subtle red and burgundy undertones with addition to dullness makes it more wearable      dark red lipstick 
 - It's great for every day use.
 - not pricey at all

Cons:
 - The lasting power is quite short - it doesn't last longer than a couple of hours ( I recommend     use a lip liner before applying the lipstick.

Have you tried a Essence lipstick? What do you think?What is your favourite lipstick for fall? Let me know!
