~Weekly Product Highlight~ Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss~
I was watching a video by Drugstore Maven, and she recommended the Essence XXXL Shine Lipglosses. Being a huge fan of glossy lips, the next time I was at Target I picked one up.
I am not exaggerating when I tell you I instantly fell in love with this gloss as soon as I put it on!
The gloss goes on smoothly and evenly without feeling sticky at all. It does not bleed outside the lip line. It has a great sparkly shine that is not glittery. The gloss also wears off well. I cannot stand it when a sparkly gloss wears off leaving a weird looking glittery residue on the lips. (not cute!)
The packaging is very simple and pretty yet sturdy. It comes in a transparent glass tube with a silver cap. The name is on a label on the cap. The gloss has a long flat doe foot sponge tip applicator. I like the flat applicator because it holds a lot more product and applies the gloss nice and precisely.
The first shade I purchased was in 22 Nude Kiss. It has just a hint of pink shimmery color to it which can be worn alone or as a glossy topper over another lipstick.
After wearing Nude Kiss non-stop for several days, I knew that I had to get another shade of these glosses. The second shade I picked up is 07 Big Night Out and 08 Glamour To Go. They are a sparkly mauve and a sparkly coral nude.
At only $2.49 a tube, this gorgeous lipgloss is a great deal!
As I do with most of my favorite makeup discoveries, I quickly shared it with my sisters and my sister in law. The next day my sister sent me the below picture. She got hers in 17 Fabulous Fuchsia. Since then she told me that she loves it and has used her so much that it is almost gone. A few days later she went back and picked up Nude Kiss as well.
What does the Essence Website have to say about the XXXL Shine Lipglosses:
“Ultimate shine for your lips! The XXXL shine lipgloss pampers your lips without leaving behind a sticky feeling. Contains vitamin e and panthenol to moisturize and prevent lips from feeling dry. Available in 12 glossy shades.”
Now I have three of the 12 shades and I love them all. They are all somewhat similar, yet a bit different, and all beautiful!
What about you? Do you have any Essence XXXL Shine Lipglosses? What do you think? Which are your favorites?
