The only complaint that I have about this polish is that holding the itty-bitty bottle for pictures is a little awkward. Other than that, it's great. The brush on Essence polishes is small and flat, kind of like a mini-Pro-Wide. It makes application really easy. You Belong To Me only needed two coats for full opacity; for such a light color, that's great. Color me pleasantly surprised.
The other delight that I found at Ulta last weekend were NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. They've garnered a bit of buzz in the beauty community and I think they're new for 2011. There are 11 colors in the line, and their schtick is that they go on smoothly like a gloss and then dry to a matte finish. I love them. All the colors are named after cities. Here's Monte Carlo.
Great color pay-off and wear time with these. With drinking and eating expect to have to reapply within about four hours. Here's Amsterdam.
And here's Stockholm.
Clearly I am seducing you with my nude lips and preppy Target cardigan.
These are $5.99 and worth every penny. If you like matte lip products, check these out. I'm particularly fond of Stockholm. It's a great nude color for every day. I'm wondering how similar it is to the Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick and Lipglass pair. I have both, so I'll have to check that out and get back to you.
K, that's all. What do you guys think of Essence You Belong To Me? Essence seems to be coming out with new colors pretty frequently now. It's nice! Also, anyone else tried these NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams? I think I'm in love.
