Swatches: Essence Rebels LE Lip & Cheek Pot

Hi guys!
Today I have some swatches to show you, because I now own the Lip & Cheek Pot from Essence's Rebels LE. Don't worry, you didn't miss my Spotted post, I didn't see this LE myself yet. My Mom, the best Mom ever, got this for me yesterday because she knew I wanted to have it. Tomorrow I'll go to the drugstore and have a look at the LE myself, but I already wanted to show you pictures of this one!
This Lip & Cheek Pot is a cream blush in a little pot that reminds me, and probably everyone else, of the Bobbi Brown Pot Rouges. I don't own a Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, so I can't compare them, sorry about that!
Now, let's go on with Essence Lip & Cheek Pot. The color is called 01 Peach Punk, and the color is a vibrant and very bright peach-leaning orange. I know, it looks harsh, and when I first looked at it I thought it was way too bright. It's a creme, doesn't contain any shimmer particles whatsoever.
The consistency of it is creamy, but it's also a little gel-like in a good, still tight kinda way. It's hard to describe, but it definitely feels good.
When you swatch it, you can immediately tell that it's pigmented really well, but it doesn't look that harsh anymore. On my skin tone it turns a little more into a peach color, looking way more wearable. And when you blend it, it also looks better :) I'm a very pale girl, and I still think I can wear this, as long as I don't use too much product. I think I'm only gonna use this as a blush, even though it is also meant to be worn on your lips. Maybe I'll try that, too. Dunno ;)

I'm super excited to wear this one, it looks so good so far!
What do you think of it?
BTW, here *click* you can see promo pics of rest of the LE.

  2. Looks good. Better than the new soufflé blushes that I tried out at my local store this morning. Pigmented, yes, but only on the finger swatch, not on the skin.

  3. I was very fortunate to see this collection, I think I was the first in my store because all the testers were still unused but after some thought I didn't buy anything. I set my eyes on matte lip glosses but colors looked a bit odd. I didn't tried this lip & cheek pot because it looked way too strong colored but apparently it's more sheer, maybe next time ;)

  4. Wow! I like the colour very much! My only concern is if it will last for long in the cheeks.

    1. Yes, for me it does last long, it only fades a little during the day. A real review will be up soon :)
