Hello Beautiful Ladies,
Last month I brought few products from Essence and this was my first time trying these products. Out of the products I brought I have already reviewed 2 mono shadows in the shades Get ready! and John lemon. Today I will be reviewing another product that I bought from Essence and it is one of their XXXL shine lip gloss in the shade Big Night Out.
Product quantity: 5ml
Price: INR 229
Packaging: These lip glosses comes in a large cylindrical transparent bottle with a silver colored cap. The packaging is very simple but sturdy. The applicator that comes in this gloss is a rectangular sponge applicator which is flat from both the sides. The shape of the applicator actually helps in better application. I personally loved the shape of the applicator as it helps to avoid getting too much product in a single dip.
Ultimate shine for your lips! The XXXL shine lipgloss pampers your lips without leaving behind a sticky feeling. Contains vitamin e and panthenol to prevent your lips from feeling dry.
My take on Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss: Big Night Out
Color: When I saw the name of the color ‘big night out’, I assumed it to be a bright bold colored gloss (as I usually connect bright colors for night time), but this color is completely different than what I actually expected. ‘Big Night Out’ is a nude colored gloss with pink undertones to it. The gloss does not impart much color on the lips (especially if they are pigmented), but as it has a frosty finish, the frostiness of the color and the shine it gives to the lips makes the lips stand out. The gloss is called XXXL shine and the name is rightly given to it. The gloss is extremely shiny and has the capability to glam up any lipstick. When seen in the packaging, the color seems to have sparkles but when actually applied no sparkle can be seen, which is actually good for me as I personally do not like sparkles on my lips.
Pigmentation: The color is decently pigmented. It is not one of those glosses that give a good amount of color to the lips, but it does not even belong to the range that does not do anything except making the lips shine. This gloss imparts a very minimum amount of color to the lips making them look beautiful and yet simple. This is a perfect shade to compliment a bold eye look.
Texture: The feeling of this gloss on the lips is amazing; it almost feels like water on the lips. The consistency of the gloss is very runny. It feels very light and hydrating on the lips. Due to its flowy consistency and big applicator size, it becomes really easy to apply the color. No lip balm is required beneath this gloss, as it makes the lips feel moisturized and soft.
Staying power: Unlike many other lip glosses I have, this one has a good staying power. The gloss stays easily on the lips for around 3 hours and it can actually stand little meals. The gloss is completely non-sticky and it maintains its texture even after meals. Though the gloss is almost gone after 3 hours, but the moisture it gives to the lips can be felt for several hours.
Overall this particular shade from Essence has everything I can expect from a lip gloss. This is my first gloss from this brand and I loved the formula.
