Thanks to Essence Cosmetics Singapore‘s Facebook giveaway last week, I got the Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss in 12 Soulmate for being one of the first 50 to comment on their post 🙂 Yay!
These retail for S$3.90 at selected Watson’s stores and are a whopping 5ml in content.
Made in Germany, the ingredients can be found here http://www.essence.eu/products/ingredients.html
The applicator is a breeze to use with its slightly flat sponge tip.
It’s a lovely light pink shade on my hand and certainly very wearable.
This is the 2nd of Essence XXXL lipglosses I have, with the other being the 03 Nude Kiss reviewed here.
Unlike the 03 Nude Kiss that had a vanilla/buttercream scent, 012 Soulmate comes scented with a fruity berry candy-like scent that lingers around for a few minutes. It smells very young and girly, pretty much in keeping with the shade, I’d imagine.
My lips do have slight colour to them, so 012 Soulmate shows up as plain gloss on my natural lip shade. I’d imagine for ladies with paler lips, this would be a very natural light strawberry-pink on you.
Unlike the 03 Nude Kiss, 012 Soulmate does NOT sink into the lines of my lips. It’s also equally moisturising and has about the same texture as the 03 Nude Kiss. It’s also not goopy and non-tacky and has a reasonably light feel to it.
❤ for the pricepoint and quality of the Essence XXXL Lipglosses!
