I finally got my semester 5 board exams results and I cleared and right now while writing this review, I feel like I am the happiest person on earth. I hope all the BMSites have cleared the exams. Congrats to all those who have! Coming to the product, it is a mini lip gloss from Essence. I got quite a few items from this brand and this was one of my picks. This range of glossy lip balms had many shades to choose from and there were all sort of shades like pinks, purples, reds, etc. I picked the red one and here’s the review.
Rs. 129 for 8.5 ml.
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 in Cherry Kiss:
I went to visit the store and Essence was one brand that attracted me the most due to all the colourful items that were arranged there. I just couldn’t stop myself from picking up the stuff. I got this lip balm in the flavour “Cherry Kiss” just because it was red and I like it a lot when my lips look red or pink. The packaging is extremely sweet and girly and the red gloss can be seen through the tube.
The slant tip and a 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 colour pay-off.
The shade is a red one and the lips actually appear red and shiny and it totally gives a doll look. The red colour does not settle in fine lines and does not even bleed, but it smells nothing of cherries, has a little bubble-gum fragrance which I think everyone may not like. It went into my mouth and tasted very sweet actually.
It lasted on me for like 3 hours considering I don’t have snacks or sips of water continuously. With snacks, it will stay for less than 2 hours. Overall, I pretty much love this gloss and currently I am carrying it wherever I go because this is apt for day time and night time as well and looks good with subtle eye makeup and heavy eye makeup too; it is actually helpful to finish up any look.
Pros of Essence Glossy Lip Balm in Cherry Kiss:
- Looks very cute and easy to carry around.

Yes, I surely recommend this one as it is suitable for every occasion, be it everyday wear or a date or a party because it just finishes up every look, gives a very dazzling shine which all the girls love and you have a lot many flavours and shades to choose from. I might get this one or some other flavour again.
