Essence Lips Collage

Hi Everyone

I’m not a big fan of Lipgloss’s as i find too many of them are sticky. Essence are different, no stickiness, great shine as well as quality.

Mirror Shine & Matt Effect Collection

Mirror Shine  mirror, mirror on the wall! The lipglosses with a “mirror shine effect” have a high color-dispersion and come in subtle as well as bright versions. the flock applicator with a reservoir distributes just the right amount of texture for smooth lips with a shiny finish.

Matt Finish   matt = a must! if you love this lip trend, the velvety-matt, long-lasting lipglosses are ideal for you!  the light, mousse-like texture lasts on your lips for several hours without drying them out. particularly easy to apply thanks to the flat applicator.

WHAT I SAY  I recently bought a couple of the above colours from the Mirror Shine & Matt Effect collection. My favourite has to be Baby Doll’s Favourite from the Mirror Shine range which is a pink coral colour and has a slight vanilla scent. The colour is not as bold as shown on the bottle once it is applied to your lips. It has a long lasting finish, which last about 4 hours. It has a slightly thicker consistency as previous lipglosses but its not sticky and has a smooth feeling. Definately one of my favouites
