essence XXXL shine lipgloss in ”30 frosted pink” – review

Hello hello!

* Product provided for review. *

I’m a huge fan of the brand essence and I always pick up their trend editions that we get in Canada, but oddly enough I don’t have many items from their regular line. So I was really happy to receive this XXXL shine lipgloss to try out.

essence describes these lipgloss as timeless, trendy and beautiful! the wonderfully shiny lipglosses 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 lipglosses are simply irresistible!

I received the shade 30 frosted pink which I used in my essence of Fall Beauty FOTD, and I also previewed it in my Mail Haul & Shopping Haul: essence cosmetics video. Let’s see what I think about the product…

Scent

I could not detect a scent to this product, it’s odourless for me.

Applicator

This lipgloss has a doe foot applicator that is wide on one side and thin on the other.

Colour

The shade frosted pink is a very shiny pastel pink colour. Here’s a half-and-half comparison so you can see how it looks against my natural lip colour.

And here is the full application. Look at that shine!

Formula/Texture

This lipgloss is not sticky, which is nice because when I have my hair down I don’t like to wear it on my lips, hee-hee! 🙂

It feels very smooth on the lips, but it does transfer easily so if you drink often, like I do, you’ll need to reapply every 2 hours or so. However, this colour is light enough that you don’t need a mirror to apply it.

My lips did not feel dry once this product wore off.

Final Thoughts

This is my first time trying the XXXL shine lipgloss from essence and I really liked it. This is not an every day colour for me, but I’ll have to look at their other colours to find one that is because I can see myself using this product a lot.

The XXXL shine lipgloss are available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $2.49 CAD, and this new shade will be available this August.
