I am back with a lip gloss review. I did a small Essence haul a couple of days ago, this lip gloss seemed to be a good one to wear every day, so I picked this up. Let’s find out how it fared for me.
Timeless, trendy and beautiful! the wonderfully shiny lip glosses 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 lip glosses are simply irresistible!
My Experience with Essence XXXL Shine Lip Gloss in Fabulous Fuchsia:
This lip gloss comes in a transparent tube made out of thick plastic which looks like glass. The name of the company and a small description is printed on the body in silver. It has a silver cap which fits perfectly ensuring no spilling of the gloss. The wand has a doe-foot applicator and it picks up very little gloss, but enough to coat the lips lightly and evenly once.
When you look at the lip gloss, you see light pink gloss with fine sparkles in it, but when you swatch, it isn’t as pigmented. It’s almost transparent with a little hint of pink in it. This gloss is very, very sheer. The sparkles do not show on the lips that much. The colour isn’t buildable. All you get is a little hint of pink on your lips. I wish it were a little more pigmented and not as sheer as it is.
The texture is so smooth, it’s like you are applying some velvety liquid on your lips. My lips feel buttery smooth after I apply this. It’s moisturizing as well. After the gloss fades out, my lips do not feel parched. They feel quite like I applied lip balm. I’m in love with the texture of this gloss.
Now, this is a disappointment. It stays a maximum of 3 hours without eating. It fades away after that. I wore this gloss at 8.30 in the morning and by 11 am, the gloss faded. I did not even talk much, wish it stayed longer.
It has a very mild sweet smell to it, which fades quickly. The gloss has no taste to it.
