You guys probably know the drill by now with regards to this project. I decided to this because I wanted to find alternatives to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils because it is a rather high end lip oil in bought product and price. I have already done reviews for both the BarryM Lip Oil and the Catrice Lip Oil so go check them out before you read this one. Today post features the Essence Prettifying Lip Oil in shade 01 I Care For You, Honey.
“Lip Oil for soft and smooth lips. With jojoba oil, Non-Sticky.”
Packaging is very very similar to the Catrice lip oil packaging in that it comes in an acrylic tube with a white applicator top. The applicator is a bit different in that it’s as narrow as the BarryM applicator but it does have a doe-foot end. This retails for 2.50 euros and I picked mine up from Pennys/Primark
The product itself has a very strong scent that isn’t unpleasant but isn’t the greatest at the same time. Formulation wise I think this sits in between the Clarins ones and the Catrice/BarryM ones, the Clarins is a very thick formula and the Catrice/BarryM have a slightly thinner consistency. This sits exactly in the centre. in that it’s not to thick and doesn’t apply thinly either.
The shade like I said is called 01 I Care For You, Honey and though it’s yellow in the tube it really doesn’t provide any colour on the lips whatsoever. The other two shades available in this range are called 02 First Help, Pinky and 03 SOS, My Heart. I will make a comparison post comparing the four an tell you which of the four is my favourite.
