My Experience with Essence Colour Boost Vinylicious Liquid Lipstick 09 Don’t Walk Just Dance:
Let’s start with the packaging. The Essence Colour Boost Vinylicious Liquid Lipstick 09 Don’t Walk Just Dance comes in a plastic tube. The colour of the tube is same as the color of the lipstick inside. This makes picking the right colour so easy and one does not need to read the name or number to find out which one to pick. This is especially a plus point if you own more than one of these.
All the tubes in this range have a black screw-on cap. They are very secure and also easy to open and close. These are perfect to travel with. I initially thought that the tube will have a small opening to apply the product, but instead, it comes with an application wand, like that of a lip gloss. This was a pleasant surprise. The wand is quite strong and gives the support to apply the lipstick all over, especially on the edges without any mistakes. The felt applicator at the tip is hourglass shaped and works well with the application.
The liquid lipstick itself smells a little like paint. The stink is one thing I hate about this range. But surprisingly, the stink varies in levels for different colours. But one can notice the smell. Thankfully, the smell does not last long. It disappears after a few minutes. One more thing I like about these liquid lipsticks is the fact that they have no shimmer or glitter. They look glossy but not due to the shimmer or glitter.
They do not feel sticky or slippery on the lips. They also feel comfortable on the lips. They do transfer when eating and even more when drinking. The liquid lipstick is very easily transferable, which is kind of expected. I would carry it along when I use it so that I can reapply as per the need. The reapplication is definitely needed. With this lipstick, it’s better not go overboard and apply too much as it might land on the teeth. So, it’s better to use the finger trick to avoid transferring on to the teeth.
With lighter shades the application can turn out to be streaky. One has to go over the lips with the wand for non-streaky application. The colour is also well-pigmented and the payoff is good. The shiny glossy latex finish lasts for 2 hours or so after which it fades away slightly. I guess it’s normal and acceptable too (at least for me).
The 09 Don’t Walk Just Dance is purple in colour. I absolutely love the colour when swatched and also on the lips. I am dusky skin toned and this shade suits me very well. This colour would suit all skin tones. We normally do not prefer purple shades unless we are wearing the same coloured outfit. But this shade is not very bright so one can use it with many other outfits too.
You can also use it to recreate Rati’s looks. There are a lot of looks created by Rati using purple lip colors. Overall, it’s a highly pigmented lip gloss. It’s not really a liquid lipstick. But for that price, I do not think it’s fair to complain. I personally would not prefer wearing such latex effect to the office but would prefer these so much for the evening or night parties. They are also perfect for the colourful Indian weddings or festivals.
