Essence XXXL Long lasting Lip Gloss Matt Effect Review and Swatches

Today under the spotlight is the very new Essence XXXL Long lasting Lip Gloss Matt Effect - 06 Soft Nude.



Product Claims

It is a longlasting, silky lipcream for a soft matt finish.






What Do I Think?

Let’s begin with packaging, shall we? The product comes in a sleek clear tube with a somewhat flat applicator which is very convenient to apply this product. I have this habit of smelling lip products J and this one smells caramel and vanilla which I love, the scent disappears once the product is applied. It has a creamy texture and consistency and applies more like a lip cream than a gloss, which I really like. The shade is a flesh-toned one; since my lips are a bit pigmented (I have medium complexion with yellow undertones) I shy off from wearing nude colours as they wash off my lips, but to my surprise this one does not. It is a my-lips-but-better shade on me and will really complement smoky eyes. This shade will suit light to medium skin tones.

It makes the lines visible to some extent once it becomes matte but it does not feel dry at all, it keeps the lips soft. However, you might not like the matte effect if you have chipped lips, I’d suggest people with dry lips to use lip balm underneath this gloss. Wear time is 3 hours max with eating and drinking after that I felt the need of reapplication. I like to reply this after removing the previous layer of product because after about 4 hours it started fading and left a dry line (which is not unusual with many lip products). Overall, I am impressed by their formula, which is matte and moisturizing at the same time.
