Today, I will be reviewing a lip gloss from Essence. This is my first product from Essence and I am very excited to try it. Let’s get to the review.
My Experience with Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss in Bubble Babe:
I like the tube of the gloss, it’s see-through with a silver cap that holds the applicator. The applicator wand is flat and at an angle to facilitate better application. The tube is cute and convenient to carry around.
Bubble Babe is a transparent gloss with loads of pink glitter. The glitter make the lips look fuller and glisten when light falls on it. I would have preferred some hint of color in this gloss instead of the glitter :-/ The gloss would be excellent on top of lipsticks if you wouldn’t mind the glitter. The texture is not that heavy or too sticky, but it does make its presence felt. As the name says, ‘XXXL shine’ indicates, it does make the lips appear lustrous and shiny along with making it look plump.
The gloss stays on for around 2.5+ hours with all the talking and it survives a light snack to an extent. It fades from the corners and transfers too. The glitters get left behind as the gloss fades away, but it doesn’t look very messy. It can be wiped off. I like to wear it alone as the glitters make it look pretty and I do not have lip pigmentation.
I have a few glosses that go transparent in my stash and this isn’t the gloss that I reach out for since I do not admire the glitter quotient. I guess this is worth a shot if you’re into glosses as the price tag is pretty friendly too.
