Simply Lippy Challenge Day 348 | essence Vibrant Shock Lip Paint in Shade 04, Twisted Sister

Today’s lipstick choice is not going to be for everyone, this one is bold and bright, and a little bit neon too! It’s not usually a lippy I would choose for a day in the office, but I was intrigued to see if the pigment was as bright on my lips as it looked in the tube and so I decided to try it out today.

Not only is the colour neon bright, but as soon as I applied it I got a great colour pay off and the pigment was very good too. The colour looks just as bright on, and it may even have been a little too bright – even for me.

This is the kind of shade that would be amazing on a Summer holiday; I don’t know about you but I love wearing bright colours when I’m away. However, I’m just not sure that it was very fitting for a cold December day. Although, it definitely brightened up makeup that’s for sure.

The formula is quite wet when you initially apply it, and it does take a few minutes to dry in. There is a little dragging because of that and if you want to layer it, you do need to let it dry in before you do in order to get a good, full coverage.

It wouldn’t be my favourite lipstick as it’s not quite matte and not quite cream either. However, I did love the brightness of the shade and look forward to trying it out when sunnier weather comes around again!
