Essence kiss care love lip balm in 01 fruit crush | review w/ swatches !


I have an Essence product review today ..
it's about a lip balm that they have launched quite recently. 
They are tinted lip balms, and they really remind me of the Maybelline baby lips 
(I don't own any of them because A. I think they're overpriced, B. They're not cruelty free. )

Anyway here goes my review. 


Quite child like, but still cute, 
it does feel kind of cheap 
and these get quite messy over time because the lip balms 
are very creamy so they tend to get all over the place. 

Very creamy, buildable, 
but be careful because if you build it up too much it can look streaky. 
It is moisturising but not really hydrating.

A sheer pink with a slight frost finish. 

Glossy, Soft frost. 
Now we all know how much I hate frosts, 
but this one seems to pass for me because it is a very faint frost plus, 
it kind of blends in the glossy finish.

Needs reapplying frequently. 
Even every hour, I would say

Smells like strawberry milkshake to me 
(you know, the ones we used to mix up with milk when we were kids). 
Flavour - sugary.

These are nice to have, I don't use them all the time to be honest, 
but they're perfect for daytime 
and especially for young teenagers. 
There are three more shades to the collection.

That's it for this review!
I hope you found it helpful and let me know what you think. below :)
