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.
