Today’s review is going to be of the Essence Cosmic Cuties Glitter Switch Liquid Lipstick in 01 Glitter Rose.
The first time I’ve heard about these kinds of liquid lipsticks was a few years ago when Ciaté London came out with their Glitter Flip. Essentially the concept behind this lipsticks is that once they are dry you press lips together and the metallic-matte liquid lipstick magically transforms in glitter which is SO COOL if you ask me.
But since Ciaté is not easy to get here in Italy I’ve never tried them, so when I saw Essence launching the same kind of product I got so overly excited I had to try it.
You can get it from Ulta for 2,49$
The packaging is long and skinny in a hard plastic material, very pretty and simple.
The scent is sweet and caramelly, I like it.
FORMULA & APPLICATION
It has a very stiff doe foot applicator that I really like because it’s super easy to use, it doesn’t pick up too much product and it’s very precise.
The formula is highly pigmented, it’s creamy and metallic and it goes on like a feather, it’s so lightweight and comfortable. It’s slightly sticky and a bit too drying on me.
When you press your lips together the glittery effect is there but you have to be careful or it can go a bit patchy.
Here are the swatches of the products without being pressed (so this is how it looks when you apply it).
Here’s how it looks after you press your lips together.
Once it dries it lasts for about 4 hours it’s quite hard to remove (you’ll need an oil based make up remover) but it will come off in the centre of your lips if you eat.

This liquid lipstick is very nice, I like the formula but it’s a bit sticky and dry, I don’t think is terrible though so for a fun night it’s absolutely perfect. The applicator is easy to use I love the shade and the scent. I’m very impressed with it and if I have the occasion I’d love to try other shades, it’s definitely quite affordable.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
