I have a hard time not buying velvet matt lipsticks especially when they are in pencil form. When is saw this in Wilko's I decided to pick it up to try.

The Essence velvet lip crayon is only £2.00 each which I think is super affordable and the product itself is well worth it. The Velvet sticks offer a silky - matt finish which means that the lipstick doesn't dry out your lips which is perfect. It has a soft texture but is highly pigmented and is easy to apply. 

I purchased the shade 'Peony Star' which is a cool toned pink/mauve shade which is a a my lips but a little better shade. These types of colours are ones I've been gravitating to for a long time now and this is just another add to my collection as an everyday colour.

I do have to say that from when wearing this it doesn't have a long staying power but I think it's got an alright lasting period before having to be topped up. It does rub off when drinking and eating which is slightly disappointing however for £2 I wasn't expecting the world.

I'm not sure if I would pick up any more shades but I will be definitely using this as an everyday colour especially for work.
