Essence Glossy Lip Balm Berry Sorbet Review

Hello my girlies,

Girls, I am super excited to tell you that I got my first tattoo done a few days ago and I am so happy about it.  Everyone loved it and I wanted to share it with all of you too.  Some people had warned me about tattoos, but it was a smooth process.  Reading the word “Sorbet,” I realized that it is a perfect summer lip gloss.  I had once tasted watermelon and lemon sorbets and both were so yummy and cooling.  I wish I could have them every day.  This lip balm is a purplish shade.  Here’s the review of Essence Glossy Lip Balm in Berry Sorbet.



Rs. 129 for 8.5 ml.

Product Description:

For pure glossy delight, opt for the Glossy Lip Balm by Essence. The pampering, light formula of this lip balm gives your lips a gorgeous shine and it has a delicious apple pie scent, too! Unlike other formulas, this one won’t dry out your lips. Sure to become your favourite lip balm, make sure you have one in your make-up bag, handbag and bathroom cabinet.  To use, simply sweep onto your lips for an immediate burst of colour and shine.

My Take on Essence Glossy Lip Balm Berry Sorbet:

I went to visit the cosmetic store and Essence was one brand that attracted me the most due to all the colourful products arranged there. I just couldn’t stop myself from picking up stuff from this particular brand.  I tried Cherry Kiss first, loved it, so picked up all the shades to try them out as I love mini glosses.  The packaging is extremely girly and the purplish pink shade can be seen through the tube.  The slant tip and nozzle make it very convenient to use and it is so tiny that it may fit anywhere. The texture of the gloss is a bit heavy and sticky, but I think the stickiness is pretty mild. One drop will cover the lips totally.


It provides a rich glossy shine which makes the lips appear fuller and the shine stays on till the gloss is on, so that is the best part. Not only shine, but it also provides good color payoff.  This particular shade called “Berry Sorbet” is more of a dark pink color and is the darkest shade among the entire range. It has a hint of purple as well.  Because this shade is the darkest one, I think it makes the shimmer particles more visible.  I think this balm wouldn’t be that great for everyday use as the shimmer particles reflect a lot. It went into my mouth and tasted very sweet actually.


The color lasted on me for 2-3 hours without snacks and sips of water.  With snacks, it will stay for less than 2 hours and the shimmers particles are sticky, so they have to be washed away after the gloss has vanished. Overall, it is a good gloss, but the range has better shades and I am not a big fan of such purple pink shades.


Pros of Essence Glossy Lip Balm Berry Sorbet:

  • Looks super cute.
  • Easy application with a nozzle and slant tip.
  • This range has 6-7 shades and flavours.
  • Gives an equal amount of glossiness and tint to the lips.
  • Makes the lips appear fuller.
  • The gloss stays for 3 hours, but only without meals or snacks.
  • Tastes very sweet too.
  • Keeps lips hydrated.
  • The pigmentation for this shade is quite good compared to the other shades from this range and it will not make your lips look bare.
  • It’s a lovely pinkish purple color.

Cons of Essence Glossy Lip Balm Berry Sorbet:

  • Not easily available.
  • It’s a little sheer for pigmented lips.
  • A little bit sticky.
  • Contains a lot of shimmer.

Would I Repurchase Essence Glossy Lip Balm Berry Sorbet?

Yes, I surely recommend this one as it is suitable for every occasion, be it for everyday wear, a date or a party.  I might get some other flavour or shade again because I am not really into purple shades; I am a fan of pinks and reds.
