Review | Essence XXXL Shine Lipglosses

Going through the products I haven't yet reviewed from the Essence & Catrice bloggers event last August, I have some serious lip candy that I should share with you presto! Starting with, 4 lipglosses from Essence's XXXL Shine range.

I have never tried this range of lipglosses before but when I saw one of the new shades at the event, I was completely sold! You have also seen numerous of my monthly favourites featuring this new lipgloss in the shade 020 Wood Of Roses which is a nice deep plum/old rose kind of shade with teeny tiny silver, pink and blueish-purple shimmer. I remember be hoping that the colour would show up as beautifully and as pigmented on my lips and I can triumphantly say that I wasn't disappointed! So off I went in search of some more XXXL Shine lipglosses.

The packaging is pretty standard and they come with a sponge applicator. One thing I don't like about the packaging is that the lettering and silver colour on the cap wears off eventually and there are no ingredients listed; although they do state when a lipgloss contains carmine. The applicator is an elongated sponge. All of the lipglosses carry a sweet, fruity smell.

I ended up getting three more, namely, 03 Timeless Beauty {an iridescent, pale lilac}, 08 Glamour To Go {shimmery, nude beige} and 15 True Love {slightly shimmery Italian pink}.  All of these lipglosses have proved to be non-sticky and last for around an hour, maybe a bit more, but you definitely need to re-apply throughout the day. Also, they are very moisturising and are extremely shiny and pigmented.

The range consists of a total of 14 brilliant hues and they retail for around €2 from pharmacies across Malta & Gozo. 03 Timeless Beauty has been discontinued.

  1. Great review. The colors look lovely and it's hard to find lip gloss that isn't sticky.
