Essence Poppy Pink Long Lasting Lipstick Review, Swatches, Photos

Hello pretties!

You thought I gave up on pink? 🙂 Well this review of Essence Poppy Pink Long Lasting Lipstick proves that my love for pink lip colors will never fade. Essence is a drugstore brand that has remained dear to my heart since I was a teenager so I still like to splurge on a bunch of their makeup products from time to time. The prices are super affordable and even though we are talking about drugstore products, the quality may surprise you sometimes just like the Matt Matt Matt Lipsticks (review, swatches) surprised me with their pigmentation and long lasting power.
