I’ve been very curious about Coloressence products since it’s featured on almost all the online shopping websites. I finally got to try out a few products from this very budget-friendly brand and am here to share my experience with you. First in line, is the Mesmerizing Lip Color. They also have another line called Premia Lip Color which I’ve yet to try. So without further ado, let’s take a look at how this fared!

My Experience with Coloressence Mesmerizing Lip Color in Passionate Pink
I’m really impressed with the packaging of this lipstick. For this price, it has exceeded my expectations. It comes in a black cardboard tube…it’s like a carton but without the two ends. You have to put your finger into one end and slide out the lipstick tube through the other. Pretty unique I must say and plus you can retain the cardboard cover and use it when you’re carrying it in your bag so that you don’t damage the lipstick casing. The lipstick is housed in a matte-black casing with a steel band, below which is a transparent, plastic cube that indicates the color inside. This makes it super easy to locate shades. The packaging is in no way tacky or cheap. In fact, it feels really sturdy and looks super classy
- Shade Description:
At first glance, Passionate pink looks quite deep and very different from what I’ve seen on the website. But don’t be fooled by the color in the tube. It is a lovely strawberry pink with enough warmth to suit all skin tones. It is a muted pink and can be worn lightly for daily use and is mellow enough to wear to office. Though it is a warm shade, it does not have any brown undertones. There is a hint of plum that is visible when the color is swiped more than once. When worn on the lips it’s a lovely flattering pink that gives just the right pop of color to my pale lips. A lot of pinks tend to look neon on me but I’m so glad this doesn’t. It’s only when I clicked a close-up shot of the lipstick bullet did I notice the teeny tiny shimmer. I was so surprised to discover it since I’d worn this shade for a week and never noticed it. So the good news is that the shimmer is in no way visible and it gives the lips a healthy sheen
- Texture & Finish:
If you have normal lips, this lipstick will glide easily and give you even application. But if you have dry lips, I’d suggest you use a lip balm underneath since it is not very moisturizing. It gives a creamy (not glossy) finish and when worn lightly as a lip stain you get a semi-matte finish. Since this tends to lean towards matte finish, it will mildly accentuate fine lines as it fades.
It has a mild floral fragrance that is not at all over-powering. I was expecting this to have a strong flavor (as is the case with most low-priced lippies) but this has a nice sweet scent that is not at all cloying. No awful taste either
The color pay-off is really good and one swipe gives semi-opaque color. Two swipes give full coverage and this shade easily hides any lip pigmentation.
- Staying power:
It lasts for 3 to 4 hours easily. The color does start fading after an hour or so but it leaves behind a nice stain that stays put even through a snack. Unlike the Colorbar Velvet Matte lipsticks, the stain is really easy to remove and there’s no vigorous rubbing required to remove all traces of color.

The last word:Coloressence Mesmerizing Lip Color Passionate Pink:-
Amazing packaging, great color pay-off, decent staying power and above all the super-reasonable price tag make this lipstick definitely worth a try. If it were more moisturizing I’d have given it full marks. But then again, the problem could be because I have very dry lips. Some websites do mention that this has SPF15. But I couldn’t find it written anywhere on the packaging. Overall, I’d really recommend this and if you love pinks since shade should not be missed
