If you’re on a tight budget you might want to check out Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss as it gives a heck of a lot of shine and a little bit of a tint too for under three dollars ($2.49 to be exactly) plus it’s available in a rather wide array of shades too!
Essence XXXL Shine Lipgloss is available in twelve shades for as little as $2.49 each.
This cheap as chips gloss has a jelly-like texture with a slanted tip sponge applicator for application. It’s not going to change your lipgloss world by any means but it will rock your beauty budget if you’re a drugstore girl at heart.
The jelly-like consistency has a high shine finish and a cake batter-like taste and flavor (it’s very strong at first but subtle once applied on lips). I found the formula weightless on my mouth and very comfortable to wear sans any sticky, tacky feel. The gloss has a super high shine factor which makes it quite lovely on top of lipstains or lipsticks. The finish isn’t opaque but it lends a sheer, delicate tint to lips so you can wear it comfortably without lip color and still see color come through on lips. For such a cheap little gloss I love how mirror-like the finish is that it provides, one would expect a drier finish due to the lower price tag.
On the down side the wear time is rather sure due to the lack of stickiness. The gloss doesn’t a formula that adheres well to lips so a touch up is necessary within an hour to two at best.
At this price, I can’t rant too much! High shine, flavorful, a little hint of tint, yeah, I’m happy.
Well worth checking out if you’re on the hint for a beauty budget lipgloss.
