REVIEW: Fall Vampy Lipsticks – Seventeen ‘Stay Pout’ & Essence ‘Long Lasting’ Lipsticks | caroomakeup

Hey guys!

So, I picked up these lipsticks last week and decided to a review on them after a friend recommended it to me! I’ll be reviewing two lipsticks very similar in shade – the Essence ‘Long Lasting’ Lipstick ,in the shade 21 Tres Chic , and the Seventeen ‘Stay Pout’ Lipstick in the shade Rule Breaker. These have been on the shelves for a while, but I’ve always been hesitant to try them because I’ve always had bad experiences with drugstore lipsticks and liners. However, I decided to give these the benefit of the doubt and try them out for a review!

My thoughts: To be honest, I have been loving this. The pigmentation is great! One worry is that to really get some colour payoff, I noticed I had to swipe at least 4 times. This is a great going out lipstick and perfect for the fall season! Another problem I have with this, is that the claim on the product is that it is long lasting. But after around 45 minutes I found myself reapplying. I dislike products where the brand claims it to be something and it turn out to be the opposite. Not cool.

My ratings: 

  • Pigmentation: 8/10
  • Lasting time: 4/10
  • Application: 6/10

Is it worth buying? Yes!

My thoughts: On my first application, I had some trouble building up the colour. I had swipe at least 8 times to really get that vampy look. It’s quite a nice colour, and very similar in colour to the essence lipstick. Although it is cheaper, I think the splurge on the Essence lipstick is worth it, rather than this.

My ratings:

  • Pigmentation: 5/10
  • Lasting time: 8/10
  • Application: 4/10

Is worth buying? Meh, maybe.
