These might just be my favorite lip glosses ever. They are so cheap, pigmented, shiny, and super smooth on the lips. As in, NO stickiness whatsoever. I have two in Nude Kiss because it is the perfect shade to look polished and natural with any outfit, but other shades like Wood of Roses (deep purpley mauve) and Just Georgeous! (bright rosy pink) are also beautiful. They may not be the most long-lasting, and the writing on the tube does come off over time in your purse, but the low price and wonderful quality makes this all okay.
nice classical lipgloss. i like that the consistancy is quite liquid and runny, so you cannot feel its annoyingly stick etc while wearing. stays in quite good and fades evenly thanks to good consistent. definitely would buy again
Bought this while going to Shoppers after school with my friend. She got a bold hot pink one while I got "Bright Side of Life" which is a more casual peachy pink colour. They are around $2.49 + tax here in Canada, making it dirt cheap. They are pretty pigmented and not sticky at all. One thing I don't like is that the staying power isn't very good (doesn't last through one of my classes which is 75 min) Overall I think that these glosses are very great for their price and I will probably purchase more when I go back to Shoppers.
For the price,it's amazing.Not a "wow" product but better than many brands.I have two of them:Sparkling Papaya & Nude Kiss.Recommend it. (i have to mention that i found theBalm's plump your pucker/water my melon gloss 10x better)
I have Dior addict lipgloss and I really think this is better!!:-) soooo cheap yet so nice on your lips!! I'd get more shades for sure!!:-)
I have 3 of these glosses, bubble babe and rising star from the shines and one from the nudes but the name has rubbed off. these lipglosses are seriously AMAZING! not sticky at all, give so much shine, quite pigmented, creamy texture, has a nice vanilla scent and last pretty well throughout the day. I think Essence cosmetics are so under-rated the quality is fab and so cheap! i picked these glosses up for $3.50 each when brands like Maybelline, Revlon and L'Oreal's lipglosses can cost upto $20. i will absolutely be repurchasing along with other Essence products :)
If you're sensitive to scent, be warned that this is is a very strong fruity scent. I like the smell, and packaging. My color is in sparkling papaya and when placed on my lips, it is so sheer, you do not see the peachy color but only the chunks of glitter on my lips, and you can feel the dispersed glitter on your lips. I had only bought this to place over my nudes lipstick from Mac. I don't like the applicator, it applies the texture of the lipgloss weirdly, like it's hard to blend and can easily go over the edges of your lips in goops. This doesn't last a long time and needs to be reapplied from time to time. Good price, less than decent product. I'm keeping it for the smell and a top coat for lipsticks.
I have two Essence lipglosses: an XXXL Shine one in Bubble Babe (a light pink with pink/red shimmers) and a LE one from the Twilight Breaking Dawn part 2 LE in Renesmee Red.
Let's start with the XXXL Shine one. The color is nice, but turns out to be no more than a glossy pink-ish layer with glitters. But, well, you can't expect a opaque color layer from a lipgloss. The color durability is good, after a drink and a snack there's still some gloss on my lips. The gloss is quite sticky, but I'm okay with that; I don't like thin, watery lipglosses. The applicator works surprisingly well; it's a slanted, rectangular applicator (I'm not good at describing this lol) which works well for the upper lip as well as for the bottom lip. The packaging looks a bit cheap, but well, you can't expect a fabulous packaging for €2,80 or so.
Now let's move on to the LE gloss. It's smaller than the normal Essence glosses (it's the same size as the Stay with Me lipglosses) and its upper part (the thing the applicator is glued to) is black and the lower part is transparent with black details. The product information has a Twilight lettertype (which is adorably cute) except for the Essence brand mark.
The color is red with red iridescent (hope I spelled it correctly. I think so) glitter. The color actually shows up on my lips, something I didn't expect at all. This gloss is also a bit sticky, but its durability is a bit worse than the XXXL shine gloss. The applicator is also the same as the Stay with Me lipglosses (an hourglass shape) which works well for my bottom lip, but not for my upper lip. Overal, this is also a super lipgloss for the price (€2,-)
this is one of my top lip glosses. Even over mac. It has a lot of shine but is not stick a bit. I have this in papya and it smells amazing. you get alot of product on the tube and i really like the applicator.This has some shimmer in it but it isnt gritty which is a problem with most shimmer glosses i have found.
I bought this in "Red Blossom" (new shade). Deeper red shade, really pretty, not garish. Lasts about 30 minutes, average time for most glosses. Non-sticky and smells pleasant (sweet). Will buy again at very nice price ($1.99). Love the doe-foot applicator.
