Ettusais Essence Gloss Review & Swatches

Ettusais Essence Gloss

Ettusais Essence Gloss is a new limited edition lipgloss that launched with the Ettusais Princess Red Collection in Japan recently. Essence Gloss is available in Pink, Red, and Beige.

Since I loved the red in the promo images so much I decided to pick up that shade.

Here’s a look!

Ettusais Essence Gloss actually makes this look a heck of a lot more pigmented in promotional images than it actually is. It’s a flavor and fragrance free lipgloss with a sheerer red tint and a thicker, highly gloss formula.

I think the red color adds a nice tint but also just emphasizes my already pink lips and gives them the illusion of a fuller look. The high shine finish is almost quite as nice as my very favorite gloss but long gone gloss from Too Faced, Mirror Mirror. It is slightly tacky and not completely weightless but I don’t mind in the least as it wears comfortably for me and leaves my lips highly glossy. On its own the red shade lends a slight tint to my lips but is no where near as opaque and full red in color as they show on the promotional model.

It is a pretty basic gloss so I’m unsure if you need to track it down for yourself. Although I will say I do like having this around for touch ups, to wear on its own, or even over my favorite lipsticks as I really LOVE high shine glosses and they seem to be rather sparse or I’m just picky!
