best buy

This stuff is super cheap, amazing texture I prefer this over my Revlon, I keep this where ever I go. Well I couldn't find a colour that I liked for my skin tone, so I only use clear. Which works out for me. If I want colour I use my lippe then this.

I AM CONVERTED

First of all, let me start by saying that I used to HATE lipglosses. I was a true believer in a matte lippie all the way. I got an Essence XXXl Shine Lipgloss in " Life is sweet" after reading many reviews about how awesome product this was and curiosity got the better of me. So I bought one. I AM SO HAPPY I DID...

This is such a low maintenance lip product. No moving or sliding around like the glosses I remember many many years ago. The shine stays perfect all throughout wear and it is surprisingly long lasting??!!

The colour I chose is perfect for me. I have Olive skin and dark hair so I went with something with subtle peach notes that is very creamy looking. Imagine a light rosy blush meets a ripe peach...SO in love with this colour and I need to get more!!! I have worn it over a lipstick but I do prefer this colour on it's own because it is so flattering to my complexion!

Essence _XXXL shine lipgloss

I have a never ending lipgloss craze so you can I bet I have amassed quite the collection ,both expensive and pocket friendly . Essence is my favorite budget friendly brand so naturally I got some lipglosses from the range, this one included .

Firstly , the color is lovely .sometimes I'd purchase gloss and it would look richly pigmented only to be barely visible when applied, so not the case here _ great color payoff .. secondly, the shine is brilliant so nice to see that claim proven.

On the flip side , the gloss is a tad bit heavy on the lips as well as sticky but the fact that it makes my lips look gorgeous means I can overlook this :p

Over and all not bad.

xoxo

Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss

These lipglosses smell great and do provide a mosisturising effect at the expense of making me feel as though my lips have been coated with treacle! The lighter shades are pretty, but the shade that I purchased - red blossom (021) - looks like a coat of shimmery paint.
Overall, the light, pale shades are great, especially if you prefer lots of shimmer and shine, however it fails to live up to its promise of being non-sticky.

Essexnce XXXL Shine Lipgloss

I'm not a fan of this lipgloss. It's very sticky and yes, gloss should be shiny, but it's too gloopy kind of shiny for me. Since it's so heavy, it doesn't seem to offer any kind of moisture to the lips.
I suppose it's great for teens that are still experimenting with makeup.

Lipgloss XXXL From Essence

These are just so affordable!! It's hard to resist and not buy them - Essence is such an amazing brand but I am not too found about these lipglosses they just don't give me that long lasting effect I want. But it always doesn't give that sticky feeling lipglosses are known to give!!

Essence XXXL Lipgloss

I am not really a lipgloss person, but I do love these. They nourish my lips while adding colour and shine. I have now fallen in love with the Nude colours they have available in these.

Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss 04 rising star & 01 pure chic

This Essence lipgloss is a great to have for the occasional or even daily glossy lip. I’ve found that when you apply this lipgloss it gives you insane shine and the shine lasts quite long, which is what you want with a glossy lip.

What I love about the 04 rising star colour is that it’s a very soft and pale pink, which is nice for when you want to wear a light lip. I wore this color to my wedding instead of a lipstick and looked absolutely gorgeous! The 01 pure chic colour is great to have, seeing as you can wear it on its own as a plain clear gloss or you can apply it over an existing gloss for more of a shine.

XXL Shine lips - true love

I bought this lipgloss from clicks (R34.95) and I absolutely love it. It suits my complexion perfectly and it makes my lips super shiny .What I found so amazing about this product is the brush design .... It is longer and flatter then the usual doe-fit applicator . I found that I only needed to apply one cost because it picks up the right amount of gloss compared to other lipglosses i have used in the past.

Sticky but pretty

Lots of different shades and a great price! This lipgloss is rather sticky though, so your hair gets stuck in it FAST! But pretty for a good price!

For Beautiful Pouts

A non-sticky, moisturising lip gloss. I love the applicator, it's skinnier than most and this makes for easy precise application.
I adore the pretty glittery bits, its feminine and fun. The lip gloss is hugely high shine, great for those night on the town. The scent is delicately sweet yet fruity. Its also very hydrating. Its stays on for quiet a while and great value for money.

I love it and I will re-purchases again and again

XXXL shine lipgloss in fabulous fuschia

Every girl needs lipgloss!! This lipgloss is cheap, but not of a superior quality.... I find it sticky and not as mositurizing as i expect however it looks great and theres a shade for everyone to enjoy! Dont know if i would buy it regularly, but its a great quick fix for a photo or trip to the shops! Cant deny the shine factor, its amazing!

Party Connection

Affordable lipgloss with so many fun colours to choose from. I have 'Party Connection' which is a nude shade. It has a 3 out of 5 sticky feel to it, so it doesn't last very long on the lips. You will have to reapply every so often.

The subtle shimmer is exactly what I like. Will be trying out more colours!

Essence XXXL shine liploss in Party Connection

I was super impressed with my previous purchase of xxxl lipgloss in Wood of Roses. This time around I got myself a nude color called party connection. Its light brown with loads of shimmers and gives you that barely there gloss effect. I also top it on to me nude lipstick and give them that extra dimension. Loving the xxxl lip glosses..for R25 they are a great buy..

Essence XXXL lipgloss

I can never stop raving about essence products. These lipglosses are no exception. They are quite pigmented with micro shimmer, which gives your a perfect shimmery look for both day and night. I have one in shade "Wood of Roses" and love it to bits. Highly recommend and for R25 its a must have..

Essence XXXL shine liploss in 020 Wood of Roses

I am in love with essence brand for their affordability and quality. I have couple of stay with me lip-glosses and I love them. I have been wanting to buy XXXL shine lip-glosses. I got myself 020 Wood of Roses and was bowled over again by their quality. This lip-gloss is not sticky (Hate when my hair gets on to my lips), pigmentation is ok and the smell is not overwhelming. For me, it works much better on similar shade lipstick/ lip liner. Its super glossy and lifts up your look instantly.

This product is so lightweight it feels like nothing is even there in the first place. I use it over a lipstick so I can actually see the effect of the lip gloss. The product actually shines like crazy! But it gives lips a lovely colour which is actually what I like about the product, because it makes plain lipstick stand out more rather than look dull, plus the gloss is light and doesn't have a sticky feeling. It doesn't break down the lipstick and make lips look horrible.

Like most Essence products, it really does it's job a good price. It lasts long and adds great shine as promised. The wide variety of colours also ensure you get exactly what you want. I love how you don't really feel it there when applied. And it smells nice!

Stunning lipgloss

This is a really lovely range that I've recently been introduced to. I'm not somebody who usually touches up my lipstick during the day, but since I bought this lipgloss, I keep it in my desk drawer and whenever I have a meeting to go to, I simply apply some of this before I dash off. I love the way it stays on and keeps my lips soft and not sticky.

Great shiny moisturising gloss

I got the XXL Shine Gloss in 11 Pick Me Up. It is a peachy see-through color with fine glitter particles. I love the brush it comes with - it is a long looking doe-foot kind of applicator. It picks up enough product to cover my lips in one go. The smell is very subtle berry. It applies very smooth to gives you a very moist finish. It doesn't deliver any colour of its own but is good for brightening up the face and applying on top of lipsticks. The gloss is not sticky at all and does feel quite moisturising! The tube is cheap and looks huge!!! Great buy!!!

Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss - 04 Rising Star

The colour I bought my lipgloss in is 04 Rising Star which is the one in the picture on the left. Its a baby pink colour that contains super fine multicoloured shimmers in it. Its glossy but not over the top, it doesn't dry out my lips, its not sticky and its CHEAP! And by cheap I mean the price is cheap, the quality is NOT cheap! I can definately compare this to my Rimmel Stay Glossy Lipgloss which is double the price!

It comes with a long, sleek sponge applicator that allows you to easily apply the gloss to your lips. The gloss is quite sheer (the colour that I bought it in) but does have a slight pigmentation. And it smells deliciously fruity.
