It's been quite some years since I stopped wearing lip glosses (except at home - I wear Catrice Volumizing Lip Booster because it's creamy and I have to use it up). I switched to lipsticks because I discovered the world of matte lip stuff.
But that isn't really important today. I want to tell you about this gloss by Essence (which I got on the Cosnova event), which I actually tried and used quite a bit.
effective lips! the popular effect trend is also available for your lips. whether flakes, metallic, holographic or ultimate shimmer pigments – these beautiful lipglosses conjure-up an absolute wow-effect on your lips. exciting effects guarantee that all eyes will be on your lips this season.
Is it sticky? Yes, but not very much. Except that doesn't really matter because for me gloss = hair stuck on the mouth. Even if my hair is in a bun, doesn't matter. =D
It's called JEWELS IN A BOTTLE, because it's full of flakes. You read that correctly. The concept is wonderful, amazing lips, right? YES!
Except... well the flakes feel a bit scratchy on my lips. Nothing major (like glitter on lips), but when I press my lips together, I can feel it. Um, not a pleasant thing.
The color is gorgeous, the flakes look amazing and it's not that sticky. I think it's an OK lipgloss considering the (cheap) price range. But what do I know? I was once a lipgloss gall, but not anymore.
