Essence XXXL long lasting lipgloss- Matte Review

The velvety long lasting lip product that I haven’t heard anything about online but are they worth more hype?

What is it?
Essentially a liquid lipstick. If you don’t know what a liquid lipstick is, where have you been? It is a melted liquid version of a lipstick. A creamy liquid that dries to a matte finish.
Is it expensive?
Not at all, essence is known for being a very affordable brand and these are no different retailing for around £2.30 and $2.99

Is it for you?
Are you wanting to try out the ‘on trend’ liquid lipstick but don’t want to splash out on a £15 one then this is a great alternative. If you like nude pink, nude brown and classic red then you are in luck as these are the only colours they sell in the matte version, which for me is the only down side about this product, because it is a very limited colour selection. Also if you are into the Kylie Jenner browny nudes them the shade 006 would definitely be one to look out for.

Is it worth the money?
Definitely, I love this product and would recommend it to anyone, as it’s so affordable you can’t really go wrong. Although they are matte, they are not at all drying. They are also very comfortable to wear and last a long time on the lips. Furthermore because of the small doe foot applicator, it makes applying this product very easy and allows you to get a nice and neat shape.

It’s very similar to the other hundreds of liquid lipsticks, just at a much lower price point.

Where can I get my hands on it?
In the UK in store at Wilko is the place to get them, they are also available on there website, which is available worldwide. Also Ulta sells essence but I’m not sure of the exact products they have, but it may be worth a look.

Anything else?
This product does have quite a strong smell, which I think smells like butterscotch and you can smell it on the lip for a little while after application but it isn’t an issue for me but may be something to consider if you don’t like strong perfumed products.

Final thought
Basically I love these matte lip glosses, they are super affordable and long lasting, matte but not drying, what more could you want. Okay, I want more colours in the range but other than that they are amazing.

Let me know your opinions if you’ve tried them in the comments below.
