I always pick up Essence‘s trend editions when them come out – I just can’t resist them! It used to be only nail polishes, but lately I’ve been picking up some makeup items too. Today’s post is about one of the products I picked up last month when I came across the Love Letters trend edition at my local Shoppers Drug Mart: the Jumbo Sheer Stick in Rosy In Love.
On the packaging it says gives sheer colour with a glossy finish for softest lips ever. Let’s see how it worked out for me.
This has a very light and pleasant scent. It’s kind of fresh and a bit fruity, but I can’t put my finger on the exact scent. All I can say is that I really like it.
In Canada we only got the colour Rosy In Love, but this TE has a second colour called Deer Peach! as well.
Since this is called a Jumbo “Sheer” Stick I think you can guess that the colour is sheer. I’m glad we got the pink one and not the peach cause I’m a pink person.
It’s actually very sheer and I find that it adds a nice shimmer to my lips. It actually lightens them a bit too. Here’s a half-and-half to show you.
And now the full application.
This product applies very well, but it will stick to dry patches if you have any and make them appear lighter.
I find the texture is kind of between a lipbalm and a non-sticky lipgloss. It definitely has more staying power than a lipbalm, but maybe not as much as a lipgloss.
I honestly love this Jumbo Sheer Stick! I find the lightness of the product perfect for springtime and it feels really good on my lips. It’s one of my go-to products right now.
I know my Shoppers still has some items left from this TE so you might be able to find it too.
Did you pick up anything from the Love Letters trend edition?
