Essence Glossy Lip Balm Review – Essence Cosmetics

Product Description

Today I am going to share my review based on Essence Glossy Lip Balm. Climate changing day by day. Everyone trouble during winter and dry season. Because of the cracked lips.  Lip balms are very useful for the dry lips.  Most of them moisturize their lips using lip balms or lip oils.

Few days ago I search the new arrivals in a shopping mall. Essence was one brand that attracted me the most due to all the colourful items that were arranged there. I got a chance to found essence lip balm range. I just couldn’t stop myself from picking up stuff.  I found them interesting as it claims to be used as a balm and gloss at a same time. Essence Glossy Lip Balm protecting your lips from dryness.

Essence Products

Essence is an European brand. They have full range of beauty products to make you look great. They have everything ranging from skin care to face care from lip care to nail care and eyes. Essence introduced cute lip balms. It has balmy texture as of a lip balm and glossy finish of lip gloss. I really like essence ideas of combining the finish of a gloss with the hydrating effect of a lip balm. Essence glossy lip balm consists of 9 different shade colors and fragrance with delicious names (which I love to call flavours).

How to Apply

Wash your face including lips. Apply and extend the product for your lips to hydrate. Essence Glossy Lip balms have a built in applicator, so you remove the cap and squeeze the tube to ease out the product. The applicator was just the right size for my lips and the angle of the applicator made application a breeze, without wasting product. One thing that you must remember while applying the lip balm is that always look into the mirror if you want the colour to show on your lips properly. Also the lip balm is very light weight and it feels good against the lips.

 

Packing

It’s available in a squeezing tube. Essence Glossy Lip Balm comes in small plastic tube with screw cap containing 8ml.  Packing is cute but looks cheap at the same time. The tube is very small so it’s easy to carry in makeup bag or hand bag when go out.  The angled nozzle helps balm to spread fully on the lips. The tube is tiny cute  in an eye catching manner.

I’m a fan of colourful products and these are no exception at all. They are bright and cute to look at plus each one has it’s own theme and matches the ingredient mentioned on the packaging which is another lovely touch. I also really like that in tube. It’s a lot more hygienic and you can easily apply on the go, pop into your handbag and apply as needed during the day.

These come in inverted tube packaging, which is colour coded yet transparent. The front shows the shade name and the fruit name to indicate the flavor of the glossy lip balm. The packaging is very cute and girly. It can be easily located in your lipstick stash. The cap fits perfectly too. The slant tip makes application even and easy. Overall, it is super cute and can be thrown in your purse without the tension of leakage or spillage of the gloss. It is very cute and I felt like I have gone to my older days when we used to have those small plastic make up boxes.

Texture

I really have no idea why Essence have called these Lip Balms as they’re exactly like a gloss, they act like a gloss and look like a gloss, even though they’re nourishing, I wouldn’t call them a balm. I use them as a lip gloss. For me a balm is quite lightweight with very little, no colour and also something which can be used as a night treatment too. These can’t be used like that as they’re a lot thicker than a balm and they have colour. It is very suitable to use. So you can apply it without a mirror. It gives a lovely glossy finish which lasts till the gloss is on.

 

Flavors

Each one has certain ingredients listed here, one is mango, one is strawberry, the other chocolate and so on. When you smell the products you’ll fall in love as it’s actually like smelling the real thing. The Mango and strawberry is really fresh and fruity, the chocolate is quite rich but not at all sickly. I mean put it this way if I closed my eyes and had the real thing in front of me and the lip glosses. It would be a really close call as to which is the real one. They smell that good.

 

Price & Availability

8ml tube is available in $2.5, which is quite reasonable price. It is available in all leading stores and essence cosmetic counters across the country. All flavors are available in online at any time you can purchase. Online buyers can find this product at Amazon. Budget friendly to purchase.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – Sweet Strawberry Review

 

Shade & Smell

This gloss is little sheer and bit sticky. This range of glossy lip balms has better shades. This is the second lightest shade in the range. Has a nice strawberry fragrance and tastes very sweet. The gilter remains even if we rub the lip balm with a cloth or tissue. The tint leaves behind a faint pink shade which seems to be good. The tint goes off in an hour. The slant tip makes it very convenient to use and it is so tiny that it can fit anywhere.

It provides a rich glossy shine which makes the lips appear fuller and the shine stays on till the gloss is on, so that is the best part. This gloss has a light blend of red and pink which is very mild and does not show much on the lips.  It gives more of a shine and a light tint.  The colour pay off is a little less as compared to the other shades. The gloss is more on the sheer side and hence is great for everyday use.  It’s one of my favourite and I really love the pinky tint it gives which looks so girly. This smells like a cheesecake with strawberry.

The packaging is extremely girly and the light reddish shade can be seen through the tube. But not easily available. The texture of the gloss is a bit heavy and sticky, but the stickiness is pretty mild. One drop will cover the lips totally. The shimmers particles are lightly visible on close observation.  Keeps lips hydrate

 

Staying power

The gloss stay for 2 hours without any snacks and water sips.  With snacks, it stays for less than 2 hours and the shimmers particles are sticky, they have to be washed away after the gloss vanishes. Looks cute and easy to carry.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – Cherry Brownie Review

 

Shade & Smell

A very sheer reddish (cherry) colour. It has a nice cherry taste, nothing too sweet or over powering, but simply a hint of cherry. The packaging is simple yet still very cute a small transparent 2” squeezable plastic tube, with red screw cap and slanted nozzle. The taste is sweet but I literally hate the smell it is like antibiotic syrup which I used to have as a child.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – Cherry Kiss Review

Shade & Smell

This lip balm in the flavour “Cherry Kiss” just because it was red and like it a lot when lips look red or pink. Smells like bubble gum and tastes very sweet too.The shade is a red one and the lips actually appear red and shiny and it totally gives a doll look. The red colour does not settle in fine lines and does not even bleed, but it smells nothing of cherries, has a little bubble gum fragrance which I think everyone may not like.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – Mint Drop Review

Shade & Smell

The balm smell is fresh, sweet and mint but not overwhelming but very light.  A minty toothpaste flavor with shimmer but no tint. This lip balm is transparent coloured, glossy and hydrating with shimmery effect. This lip balm is colourless with shine that’s the reason most of them choose to pick this one

Texture

The texture is thick and creamy containing a lot of shimmer with no specific colour. The balm is very light weight and moisturizing.. You can use this balm on your lipstick to give them glossy effects and keep hydrated specially in winters. The moisturizing factor in balm is good it will help to make your lips soft and hydrating as long time. Lips absorb moisturizing factor and leaving shimmer behind.

Shade & Smell

Essence Mango Ice cream glossy lip balm comes in a transparent tube with a pink cap. Sweet soft pink colour that reminds me of a milkshake. Delicious smell with well moisturizing

Finely milled shimmer particles contains in lip balm reflects light and makes the lips appear fuller. The shades actually tastes like mango flavor and smell delicious. The colour is warm pink and the tastes like artificial mango. If you have the chance to taste mango juice, this glossy lip balm tastes like that.  It can be distracting for individuals who are trying to finish the habit of licking their lips after apply lip balms. First things first; I love the colour of the lip balm. Its neither too bright nor too dull. It is a nice light shade that you can wear on casual occasions.

Texture

The moisturization however lasts and my lips have remained hydrated for really long even though I did not reapply the Essence Mango Ice cream lip balm on certain occasions.

Staying power

The colour however does not last for long and you may have to reapply every couple of hours.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – raspberry sorbet Review

Shade & Smell

Glossy lip balm in shade raspberry sorbert which has a sweet smell and taste to it. It has a very light pale pink colour shade. The silver glitter particles  in it really put off. Has a sweet berry smell. The colour is a soft pink shade with a lot of very fine shimmer. On the lips it adds a tiny hint of healthy pink to the lips, with sheen and shimmer.

Texture

These particles are not very visible after application but are big enough that can feel them grinding between lips and it is not something like. The lip balm does not feel sticky on lips.it actually tastes sweet and yum. Hydrates better than most lip balms. Doesn’t feel sticky. The glossy balm is very light in texture, and very smooth. It cannot be layered or can’t be built up because it’s so glossy. If applied on top of pink lipstick, your lips will look so amazing. I couldn’t take my eyes off my lips when I applied it that way. The glossy balm makes lips look a million times bette

Staying power

Have to reapply after every 2 – 3 hours because the colour does not really shows on lips. Lip balm have little big particles is not very pigmented.  After its glossiness faded away the lips felt soft and smooth and tasted sweet. It won’t suit for medium to dark skinned people if applied on bare lips. The staying power of this lip balm is pretty. There are so many other variants available. If you buy this, then do try using it over pink lipstick

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – berry cupcake Review

Shade & Smell

The fragrance is pretty sweet and smells like a bubble-gum; nothing new about it, we have sniffed such smells before in some glosses. It tastes sweet but. Very artificial if at all it goes into the mouth. Initially it looks very uneven, the berry colour on some parts and rest very sheer. It is a cool toned berry color that tastes like medicinal berry syrup. Light formula of this lip balm gives your lips a gorgeous shine and it has a delicious Berry Cupcake scent. This gloss has a very light berry pink tint which does not show up a lot of the lips.

Unlike other formulas, this one won’t dry out your lips. It has a cute sparkly pink shade which could be seen through the tube; plus, it has a cute picture of a berry cupcake over it.

Texture

The texture of the gloss is medium thick and hence, I think the stickiness is a bit more as compared to the variant “Strawberry Cheesecake”. One drop will cover the lips totally. It comes in a squeeze plastic tube format with red berry colour twist off cap. Not good for pigmented lips. It looks like a kid lip gloss the ones which are extremely loaded with glitters. if you have small girl kids, these are perfect to make her happy. After it vanishes the shimmers are very sticky and lie there on the lips until you wash them.

Staying power

Soon after 5 minutes it settles down into a sparkly looking gloss. It provides a super rich glossy shine which makes the lips appear fuller and the shine stays on till the gloss is on, so that is the best part.

It lasted on me for like 1 and a half to 2 hours considering that you don’t have snacks or sip up water continuously. With snacks it vanishes as soon as you eat and the shimmers particles are sticky so they have to be washed or removed with a make-up remover after the gloss has vanished.

Ingredients

POLYBUTENE, ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE, CERA MICROCRISTALLINA (MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX), SILICA DIMETHYL SILYLATE, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, SILICA, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE, SODIUM SACCHARIN, TIN OXIDE, AROMA (FLAVOR), BENZYL ALCOHOL, CI 77891 (TITANIUM DIOXIDE).

Essence Glossy Lip Balm – Pink Dragon fruit Review

Shade & Smell

Essence Glossy Lipbalm in Pink Dragonfruit is a lovely cool-toned pink with light pink shimmers. It definitely makes the teeth look whiter! I love how the pink shimmers add a touch of delicacy to this feminine and funky gloss. If you’re wondering whether it smells anything like dragonfruit. I have no idea. Possibly like an artificial sort of dragonfruit scent. The scent is definitely very pleasant and sweet though, in my opinion

Texture

The texture is slightly more watery but sticky. This gives it a more glossy, reflective and watery finish. Travel friendly packaging and budget friendly. Moisturizes for about 6 hours.

Staying power

Wear-time is relatively short. It lasts about 1-2 hours with light snacking/drinking, but needs to be constantly reappplied. It’s also quite sheer, but this is good for more casual days where you need a hint of sparkle that doesn’t overwhelm your natural lip colour.

Essence Glossy Lip Balm –Watermelon Review

Shade & Smell

New soft and shiny lip balm is just right for you. Get it in practical small tube that fits into any pocket and leaves behind a delicious taste of watermelon and a nice shine on your lips. Love the light pink shad

Texture

People with pigmented lips may find this lip balm sheer. It feels a little bit sticky.  A gloss will also help keep your lips in tip top condition. This one is especially conditioning and gives lips a wonderful splash of moisture! Many lipglosses dry my lips out, especially the fancy ones, funnily enough

Staying power

The staying power turned out to be good unexpectedly. The moisture survives meals and water/tea intake. Without any liquid or solid intake, it lasts about 3.5 to 4 hours. Light formula that has a great staying power

Essence glossy lip balm Review 

Hi beauties,
Hope you all are doing great. My lip always dry and chapped often. For the dryness I have to use good lip balm through out the year. Luckily I got the chance to try Essence Glossy Lip Balm. It is available in different colour range and flavours.

I have been using the lip balms everyday, they moisturize my lips well and gives a nice hint of colour to my lips thus brighten my look. I love the new formula, they aren’t as sticky as the old formula, somehow they feel a little oily, they feel a bit like the Benefit Lipgloss on the lips.

I tried all of them on my skin to pick up the most suitable shade. Strawberry cheesecake, apple pie, mint drop and berry cupcake have a little bit of shimmer in it. All of them were cool but I preferred Strawberry cheese cake and mango ice-cream as they have a bit of more pigmentation. This looks good for layering and it stays long time on my lips.

It provides a tinted, polished shine and moisturizes at the same time. When apply this balm once the moisture absorb into the lips after wash of colour making lips look healthy and gorgeous.Packing is good and the size is perfect to carry with. When it comes to price its quite cheap. As a balm I loved it, but as a gloss its below average as it has less pigmentation. The darker shades have big pigmentation.

I am impressed by this lip balm. It moisturizes, Essence Glossy Lip Balms looks pretty, glossy and sheer, it smells sweet, it tastes sweet. Perfect for winter time. Try this one really cute lip balm. I love essence product is really very affordable brand. Teenagers love this amazing product and keep it in bag for adding instant freshness to lips. I always carry Essence Glossy Lip Balm in my makeup set.

If you’re looking for an affordable lip product to use everyday then these are perfect, coming in a number of shades, they’re really adorable – pop into your handbag and use on the go. for people who only use lipstick you won’t find any use with this but it’s very affordable and you never know…you might try and change from lipstick to gloss

I’m a big fan of trying different products from different brands and I was recently looking at Essence. Essence cosmetics are cheap and cheerful. This would make a really nice gift for someone who is just getting into make-up, though it is also suitable for those with a full make-up collection

I truly appreciate the valuable feedback of my followers. So feel free to leave your comments and share your experience.
