Today is a new chapter in the history of my blog. This is the last post that I will do with my cheap camera. The new posts will be done with my new and much improved camera. You will hopefully see a dramatic improvement in the quality of the pictures. My husband who use to study photography is teaching me to tame the new beast.
Anyway to close the deal on my affordable camera, I decided to go with an affordable product, namely Essence XXXL Longlasting lipgloss. Those lipglosses come in two finishes the regular shine lipgloss (03 very berry) and matte effect (in 05 velvet rose).

This is a standard slightly sticky lipgloss. I'm super impressed by this one. It's moisturizing, sticky but not as much as mac lipglass and it stays on my lips for about 4 hours. I will definitely pick up other shades in that formula. I don't no why they are calling this shade berry though, it is a candy blue based pink.

I wouldn't describe my experience with the mat effect as a total fail, because I really fell heads over heels in love with the shade. I will probably bring it on my next shopping trip and try to find something similar in a better formula.
