Essence XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss Matt Effect in Silky Red is a warm orange based Red. The Colour is Deep Scarlet Red and is semi-opaque in a single swipe. The base colour is true Red with a Scarlet overtone to it. After blotting with a tissue, a True Red colour with a slight hint of Scarlet remains.

The Texture is mousse like Silky and with a touch of warmth turns oily. It certainly is fleecy and creamy to touch. It does not set to a Matte finish rather it settles into fine lines, it bleeds as well.
I wear almost all lip colours softly blotted and this one is no exception. Blotting does take away the intensity of the Red, but I find it more wearable blotted since I sidestep the Lipstick bleeding.

The applicator is flat rectangular which again makes it easier for me to line on the go. But since this bleeds, I avoid.

Price: 279 INR

Cruelty-Free Status: There is a bit of perplexity from what I have researched. I could not find anything positive in terms of Non Cruelty-free, even after a lot of reading between the lines. I am assuming Essence is NOT Cruelty-Free even though they are not sold in China.

The Verdict:
I picked this on a whim of trying the most loved Drugstore brand in Europe. I wanted Coral Calling; I picked this instead since it was out of stock. There was one more Rosy Brown Colour; I assumed it would be too warm for my Neutral Complexion.
The texture is unique, nothing like I have tried before. After blotting, the texture turns powdery, just sits on top with a True red slight stain beneath. Not flattering.
The staying power is poor and it does transfer easily. Also it easily moves. I am introducing Water Glass Lipstick Transfer Test. I hope that would give much into the aspect of staying power as well. I think the weather plays an important role here, because I have seen/read other bloggers raving about this. Certainly not for Hot humid Climate.

Recommendation:
I would not recommend it to anyone unless on budget. The texture is pretty workable if lined, filled and blotted well.
