Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Today, I will be reviewing another XXXL long lasting lip gloss from my Essence lip gloss collection. The color that I will be reviewing today is called “Very Berry.” The gloss looks very similar to Essence XXXL shine lip glosses, and when I bought this, I assumed it to be the same as XXXL Shine ones. But when I actually opened and applied it, I felt the difference. These lip glosses are available in 9 different color and all the colors are equally pretty.
AED 16 i.e. almost Rs. 280 for 4.5 gm.
This gloss like all other Essence glosses comes in a transparent cylindrical tube, with a black colored cap (unlike the XXXL Shine ones that have silver colored cap). The lid is sufficiently tight to protect the gloss from spilling. The gloss comes with a doe-foot applicator which makes application easier and convenient.
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 – Very Berry:
Color: Very Berry is a shade of soft pink, which is perfect to get a simple yet put together look. It is an ideal color for both teenage girls as well as office-going ladies. The color is free of shimmer and imparts a very natural-looking shine to the lips.
Pigmentation: The color is decently pigmented and looks great on light skin tones and not so pigmented lips. The color is so light that ladies with pigmented lips won’t be able to see the color on their lips, thus it might not be a great pick for those with pigmented lips.
Texture: The gloss has a thick consistency and stays on the lips for a long time. It goes on smoothly and feels like a lip cream. The gloss is a little sticky, but not too sticky to make you uncomfortable. The gloss might accentuate the fine lines, but it does help in moisturizing the lips. The color looks streaky in one coat and so at least two coats are needed.
Staying Power: The product does have a decent staying power for a gloss. It can easily stay up to 4 hours with water sips and can even survive some light meals. After light meals, the color might fade, but the shine on the lips stays on.
Fragrance: Though I am not very fond of fragrances in lip products, I liked the fragrance of this particular gloss. It reminds me of fruit-flavored candies which makes me feel like eating the gloss. But thankfully the fragrance does not stay for long after application; otherwise I would actually eat it up.

Cons of Essence XXXL Long Lasting Lip Gloss – Very Berry:
