We all know that lip gloss is a girl’s best friend from the age of 14. You can wear a lip gloss in a No-Make Up look or in a full on Make-Up look. It is so versatile.
Today I am going to review 1 of favorite nude lip gloss from Essence: XXXL nude Lip gloss in shade: 03 Taste the Sweets.
I had picked it up randomly because I guess there was a Buy1 Get1 free sale going on. So I picked this up as my Get 1 free. It was just lying around for many days, until 1 day I decided to use. And oh boy, I was in love with it. I still repent that I should have both all the shades in the buy 1 get 1 Free sale.
Well anyways, the lip glosses are very affordable and you can buy all the shades easily from any online shopping site..
So let’s start with the review.
Essence XXXL nude: Taste the sweets is a soft red- pink color which not completely nude. It will give your lips a soft pink touch. The packaging is the same as most lip glosses packages. Simple to carry in the bag and I love the way the lip gloss bottle feels in my hands ; -).
The ingredient list is not listed in the package, but I got it off the internet :
POLYBUTENE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, MICROCRISTALLINA CERA (WAX MICROCRCYSTALLINE), LANOLIN, Caprylic / Capric Triglyceride, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2, OCTYLDODECANOL, tocopheryl acetate, panthenol, ethylhexyl salicylate, PROPYLENE CARBONATE, BHT, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, MICA, Stearalkonium HECTORITE, ALUMINA, phenoxyethanol, methylparaben, ethylparaben, AROMA (FLAVOR), CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE).
Price: I bought it for 1 EUR after discount. It is available on many online sites for Rs.220 – Rs. 290.
The lip gloss very easily glides on your lips leaving a very moisturizing feel.
It gives you a very soft pink color if you apply it on bare lips.It is non- sticky and very moisturizing. It is really pigmented for this price. Since it gives you a pink color, you can wear it bare if you are going for a no or minimum makeup look.
The best thing about this lip gloss is there is no leakage at all.
The lasting power is not so great , it is about 2-3 hrs if no intake of meals/drinks .But even after it wipes off your lips you can still feel the softness of it. It is like a temporary moisturizer on your lips.
It has a faint fragrance which is not annoying.
Overall its a great lip gloss in this price range which can be worn bare or with a lipstick.
I like this lip gloss on Maybelline Hooked on pink lipstick. I just the love the look these 2 create together.
This lip gloss is a best buy if you are looking for a budget lip gloss. There are more shades in this range, hope you find the best that suits you.
I will try to review the remaining shades as and when I add them to my collection.
Till then feel beautiful and stay connected.
