essence cosmetics XXXL Shine Lipgloss

essence cosmetics XXXL Shine Lipgloss comes in 14 shades and there are some new ones which I have for you now!

This is my first time ever using these glosses and I am pretty happy with the results. They are completely non-sticky, pigmented and very shiny. They contain vitamin E and panthenol to help with hydration and they really are very comfortable to wear for long periods of time because they’re very smooth and moisturizing.

Ok so the name implies they are like OUT OF CONTROL shiny, right? No. I would say they are as shiny as most lip glosses are. Nothing too insane about them.

One thing to note about the applicator. Three of these had the type shown above, a large bent-angle one. While two of them (Frosted Pink and Fabulous Fuchsia) had a smaller double-sided flat applicator. Not sure why but maybe they are in the process of changing them out.

Big Night Out, Nude Kiss, Frosted Pink, Pretty In Hibiscus, Fabulous Fuchsia

Big Night Out is a medium pink/nude. This is a very wearable color and my favorite one of these five.

Nude Kiss is a light pink with silver sparkles. Despite the sparkles this is actually pretty wearable and the sparkles look subtle on the lips.

Frosted Pink (new shade) is a frosty bright cool-toned pink. Great for an 80’s look otherwise…stay away from this shade!

Pretty In Hibiscus (new shade) is a bright strawberry pink with pink sparkles. It’s more subtle on the lips than one may think.

Fabulous Fuchsia is a bright reddish pink creme. This had a beautiful, even application and it’s so pretty!

Another thing to note about these is they have a fruity scent/slight taste to them but it’s not too strong for me. For the price these are definitely worth checking out in my book.

You can find these at Ulta, Shoppers Drug Mart and Fred Meyers and they are $2.49 each.

Have you tried any of these yet?
