Today I am reviewing for you another lip gloss. You can find the previous review of a lip gloss from Dermacol here and the one from Clinique here. I’ve decided to review another one because during the hot summer days making our lips look pretty is one of the easiest ways to feel nice.
Lip gloss it’s something that it is easy to re-touch during the day and even in high temperatures, most lip products behave ok. They’re not like foundation, that runs down your face or like an eyeshadow that creases.
Even if you decide to wear some kind of makeup when you’re going swimming when you get out of the water the easiest thing to do id to apply some lip gloss. So here you have another review of one from essence.
Characteristics of the essence BB lip gloss
Official Description: BB for lips. the beauty balms nourish the lips with shea butter and vitamin E to make them feel soft and supple. in addition to the care factor, the light texture also provides a gorgeous shine with subtle colour-dispersion. thanks to the slanted applicator, the balmy lipgloss is quick and easy to apply.

Like I said previously, I don’t really wear lipstick most of the time for various reasons. So I like lip glosses. I don’t own that many but this quickly became one of my favorites. The one from Dermacol is almost finished because I used it a lot since I’ve bought it.
I barely have anything left and this will be its replacement. I don’t like it just as much and you might be surprised why: it’s because its color it’s a lot more saturated than the one from their Dermacol.
The essence lip gloss makes my lips look a lot redder than the other one and it’s not necessarily something that I’m looking for.
Also, I love the fact that it’s really easy to reapply during the day because of how it is packaged. You also need to be careful not to go outside the natural line of your lips because it will be noticeable.
What I do like about it, though, it’s the fact that it isn’t sticky at all. It is not like some glosses that tend to feel like you have put grease on your lips. As I said, I think I feel like it’s closer to being a liquid lipstick, rather than a lip gloss.
That is not a bad thing. It does the find what you’re looking for. If you are someone that wants to try something that is more color saturated but not as dramatic as a lipstick I would advise you to give this one a try. I cannot advise you about the other four shades in the range, but I can assure you that this shade, which is 05 Heartbreaker, is a great option.
What do you prefer: lipsticks or lip glosses? How many lip glosses do you have? Do you like the ones that are very colored or the ones that are a little more discrete? Let me know in the comments.
