Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today, I will be reviewing another long-lasting lip gloss from the brand “Essence.” I have 4 different kinds of glosses from Essence and all of them are somewhat different in texture. The color I have today is called “I Love Pink” and the name gives full justice to my love for the color pink.
AED 16 i.e. almost Rs. 280 for 4.5 gm.
These long-lasting lip glosses come in a long cylindrical transparent tube with a black screw on black colored cap. The wand attached to the cap is long enough to touch the bottom of the tube, which actually helps to get even the last amount of product from the tube. The applicator attached to the wand is a normal doe-foot applicator which helps in getting a precise and easy application.
Mirror, mirror on the wall! The lip glosses with a “mirror shine effect” have a high color-dispersion and come in subtle as well as bright versions. The flock applicator with a reservoir distributes just the right amount of texture for smooth lips with a shiny finish.
My Take on Essence XXXL Long Lasting Lip Gloss – I Love Pink:
Color and Pigmentation: “I Love Pink” is a bright pink-colored gloss. The color seems to be a bright coral pink in the tube, but when applied, it does not come as bright on the lips. Two to three coats of the color are required to get a bright pigmentation. Otherwise, the color is decently pigmented and the color does show up even in a single swipe. The pigmentation of the color is buildable which allows using the color as a top coat over a lipstick (single coat) or alone (2-3 coats) to give beautiful pink lips. I have pigmented lips and very light colors don’t always show on my lips, but fortunately this color, does show up on my lips even in a single coat.
Texture: Thanks to its non-flowy texture, the color is very easy to apply and does not bleed outside the applied area. The color has a creamy consistency which makes it feel very comfortable on the lips. The gloss is moisturizing too which saves the time of applying an additional layer of lip balm beneath the color. Unlike the other color I have (Very Berry), this one is non streaky and looks good even in the first coat. It does not accentuate the fine lines on my lips; instead 2-3 coats of this color actually help to hide those lines. The gloss is a little sticky and may bother some girls who don’t like sticky glosses, but for me, it is not too sticky to make me feel uncomfortable.
Staying Power: Staying power of the color is good. Being a gloss, I didn’t expect it to have a good staying power, but due to its texture, it actually stays on the lips for quite some time. The gloss can tolerate a few glasses of water and one light meal and still remains on the lips with only slight decrease in the color intensity.
Fragrance: The color does have some fragrance which might bother some girls, but the fragrance is not too strong and goes away with application, but girls who are fond of light fruity fragrances will love its fragrance.
