Essence lip gloss in Bright Side of life review!

Hey Beautiful people

Hope you had a nice start to the week. I’m here to review an inexpensive lip gloss for all you lipgloss lovers/college students out there. Its another one from my Essence haul a while ago which you can see here. I love discovering inexpensive but good quality brands. Essence being a German brand is one of those.


Price – 229/- Buy online on Amazon here 

The packaging is  nothing different, just a see through glass tube with a silver cap. It has a Doe foot applicator which makes it easy to apply the gloss.


The colour is a bright coral colour. The pigmentation is not too awesome hence it does not look full blown coral when put on the lips. Does not cover up the pigmentation of lips completely. Glides on smoothly and does not have a sticky feeling to it. It has very very tiny particles of Sparkle. They are not gritty or too noticeable on the lips. You can almost not see it there.


The lasting power of this lip gloss is very average. Just like a normal gloss it lasts about 2 hours after which you only have a moisturizing feel on the lips. It does not dry them out at all. I am not a very big lip gloss person so I would not really wear this without a lip liner underneath. Honestly, I am not very comfortable with my bare lips. I can go sans makeup anytime but I need atleast a tinted lip balm on my lips. Due to eczema they have become so colourless and dull.


The price at which you get this gloss on is very nice. It’s such an inexpensive product to try. If you are into lip glosses I would recommend you check some out from this range. They are nothing extra ordinary but do really well for the price they go for. I would recommend this to people on a budget.

  1. Loved the shade! Gorgeousness at such low price !! Too good!!

    • I know. I mean there are almost no lipglosses in this price range out there. They have a variety of shades. You should check them out 🙂

  2. Love this color, looks very summery

  3. I recently bought some essence product from amazon and they are good. While browsing for budget lip glosses I noticed this lip gloss range and put it on my wishlist. Thank you for the review. Now I can decide whether to buy it or not.
