One more color variant from the lip gloss range of Essence, here is the review on the shade Taste The Sweets. Read on to know how it fared for me.
Price – Rs 299/-
My Experience with Essence XXXL Taste The Sweets Nude Lip Gloss:
The packaging is simple yet effective. The transparent plastic tube is sturdy and the applicator is user friendly. The shade name is mentioned on a sticker on the cap. The applicator sponge is good to work with and helps in precise, clean application.
The texture of the lip gloss is slightly sticky. Though it is nothing of great concern but glosses these days are absolutely non-sticky, so even a bit of stickiness bothers me. There are no shimmers to the shade, so it glides on well without any gritty feel on the lips.
The shade is a simple peachy coral with no shimmers. The pigmentation is so less that even multiple swipes do not cover lip pigmentation. When applied on top of a nude/peach liner, it can be a regular wear shade for gloss lovers. I do not find the shade to be unique or appealing, so it can be easily ignored among the plethora of lip glosses available in the market.
The staying power is poor. It stayed on my lips for maximum 2 hours without much munching or sipping. With a lip liner as base, the staying power improves to 3 to 4 hours maximum. It does not dry out the lips and even after it vanishes, there is a moisturizing effect left behind.
Pros of Essence XXXL Taste The Sweets Nude Lip Gloss:
• Simple packaging.
• Nice applicator.
• Cruelty free.
• Very wearable shade.
Cons of Essence XXXL Taste The Sweets Nude Lip Gloss:
• Poor pigmentation.
• Funny smell.
• Slightly sticky.
