Essence Matt Matt Matt Long Lasting Lipgloss on Asian Skintone // Review + Swatches

I've finally found all shades of the Matt Matt Matt Long Lasting Lipgloss.. I've been waiting to find all the colors to do a swatch post here so let's get on to it!

Essence claims that this product 'provides long-lasting color with a high coverage and a velvety-matt finish.' I do not agree that it is long-lasting part because it fades away easily when I am eating. However, it does have high pigmentation and a velvety-matt finish that does not dry my lips out.

This product does not dry completely matte and is not budge-proof. If you do not mind having to touch up now and then, I think this is suitable for you! I also absolutely love the vanilla sweet scent, it is not overpowering and fades away instantly after applying. The texture is super creamy and whipped, more so than the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream.

01 La Vie Est Belle - This color is only suitable for super fair girls, it is too light for me and it washes me out. Also, because of how light this color is, it will also accentuate any cracks and lines on your lips, hence makes it unsuitable for people with super chapped lips like me!

Even though this color does not compliment me, I didn't want it to go to waste. Thus, I use the essence long lip liner in 02 Sweetheart to do a ombre lips. It turned out to be a muted barbie pink color which is really pretty. #beautyhacks Always try to experiment with your makeup!

02 Beauty Approved - This is a beautiful warm nude that will suit light to medium skin tones. This is a perfect MLBB color for me! I have so much love for this color and have no complaints, except that it will settle into the fine lines on my lips.


03 Girl Of Today - When I first swatched this color, it reminded a lot of the NYX Matte Lipstick in Merlot. Both colors are really similar for shade reference.


This has got to be my favorite out of all colors! It is a stunning deep rosey pink that will look so good on medium to dark skin tones. However, for some reason this one in particular feels heavier on the lips, so I will always blot it with a tissue first.

04 Ready, Set, Impress! - This is super pigmented with just one layer. It is a pretty classic warm red, there is not much blue in this. This shade will look good on everybody!


05 Simply Be An Icon - This one stains my lips after a day of wearing it, leaving a pretty tint that I did not bother to touch up! This is a beautiful wine red, darker girls would totally rock this!

I wanted to ask my boyfriend to swatch all colors with me since he has a darker skin tone, but he was busy with his game. We will have another chance to!

Hopefully this post was helpful for you. I remembered only seeing the 2 reds literally everywhere, however I’ve been seeing the lighter shades too. If you are only planning on getting one color, I recommend 03 and 05!

Thank you for reading and I’ll see you in the next post!


  1. Omgsh wow!! All these brands are now coming out with liquid lipsticks and these ones by Essence look great!

    I'm surprised how great the colour payoff is considering the pricepoint of these lipsticks. I personally love the second shade Beauty approved - it looks so gorgeous and wearable, I'll definitely check these out! Thanks for the great review! Your boyfriend is so sweet for swatching with you hahahahah!
