Hello beautiful ladies!!
We all go through lip gloss addiction phase, at some time or the other. Summers are here and I have been on a lookout for super shiny lip glosses that can bring freshness to my face. I feel that every makeup enthusiast, especially lip gloss lovers must have at least one clear lip gloss for days when no lip color seems to match their mood. I am one of those people who wear their moods on their lips! So, here is the review of Essence Pure Chic XXXL Shine Lip Gloss which is a clear lip gloss.
Ultra shiny, moisturizing and non sticky lip gloss.
Timeless, trendy and beautiful! The wonderfully shiny lipglosses are available in bright as well as subtle shades. They give your lips a beautifully pampered look, amazing shine and fresh color. Glossy and light on your lips – these lipglosses are simply irresistible!
It is not mentioned on the tube itself. I had ordered it online and it never came with outer package too. So, no idea if there is any outer package too. I have taken the ingredient list from their website.
POLYBUTENE, OCTYLDODECANOL, TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, PHENOXYETHANOL, METHYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, AROMA (FLAVOR).
TOCOPHERYL ACETATE, PHENOXYETHANOL- Moderately Toxic Chemicals
METHYLPARABEN, ETHYLPARABEN, AROMA (FLAVOR) – Highly Toxic Chemicals
Shelf Life :
INR 229 for 5ml/ 0.16 fl. Oz.
It comes in a sleek, transparent glass tube with a silver cap. The name of the brand is on the tube part. It comes with a slightly slanted, flat sponge tip applicator. The slight slant shape makes for easy application!! *details*
My Experience with Essence Pure Chic XXXL Shine Lip Gloss:
This lip gloss has a thick consistency. The sponge tip applicator doesn’t really absorb a lot of product due to the consistency of the gloss. Two to three swipes and you are ready to go. It has a very weird and strong smell. It DOES linger for around half an hour. After that, I guess one gets used to it!
It doesn’t feel too sticky upon application. *thanks heavens for that*. It is not too runny either. It doesn’t weigh down your lip. I am glad that this shade doesn’t have any shimmer particles like other variants from this range.
It makes my lips seem soft and slightly plummer. But, you have to keep applying it every two to three hours. And, that’s what I call a downer! It moisturizes the lips. Even when the product has faded out, you can feel that your lips are softer. Yay to that! Surprisingly, it does not transfer to the cups or glasses. It doesn’t give you a blingy shine, but as the name suggests, a “pure chic” shine to your lips. The gloss is good for using it atop any lipstick for that extra shine and moisturizing effect.
