Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in True Love- Review and Swatches

Hello beauties

I am back with another lip product review and this time it is a lip gloss. I am a fan of all glossy and shiny lipsticks. Especially in winters when my lips become dry and chapped I only wear lipsticks with glossy finish which keep my lips moisturized and shiny.
This lipgloss was a staple into my makeup routine all throughout winter but I don't why I never mentioned it on my blog. But now I am going to share my thoughts on this Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss with you so Lets get started:

This lipgloss comes in a sturdy plastic tube with a doe foot applicator, the bottle is transparent so the actual color of the product is visible from outside.

I have got this gloss in shade true love which is a berry pink shade. The color is really pretty which gives an instant glow and freshness to my complexion. The gloss has decent pigmentation but the first coat only gives a light shine to my lips the actual color shows up only after applying a thick coat.

My thoughts:
This gloss is really lightweight, the texture is on a runny side but it doesn't bleed. The thing most people don't like about lip glosses is they feel sticky, you know how it feels like when you apply lipgloss and immediately all your hair decide to hug and kiss your lips, this thing does not happen when you are wearing this Essence lipgloss, this gloss doesn't feel sticky at all.

The staying power is pretty decent it stays fresh for upto 2-3 hours if I do not eat or drink anything and when it fades it leaves a light tint and moisturized feeling behind. It has a fruity/ berry kind of fragrance but it is mild so it doesn't bother me at all.

Overall I am really happy with this lipgloss it is perfect for daily wear (even for daytime), it is moisturizing, inexpensive and a really beautiful shade.

Price and availability:
Essence XXXL lipgloss is available at almost all leading makeup and drugstores as well as online on for PKR 350/-

That's it for today...
I'll be back soon till then take care and tell me in the comments which one do you like more glossy lips or matte?
