One of the one Essence products in the range are Gel tints. I really looked forward to this product because I love my lip stain from Vampire's love collection. I am sad to say that I'm disappointed with this product.
Let's go on to the swatches first. On the left are pictures in the shade and on the right are pictures in the sun.
This is Gel tint in the shade Deep red and this is one layer. It doesn't stain much on the first layer and you can see that it's not uniform and it stains some parts better than the others.
This is a second layer and the stain is much better but it still doesn't even out. It has a gel like consistency and it never sinks in completely which I think is a bad thing because if you rub your lips together it starts to separate and looks even more uneven. I would say it's a cross between a stain and a lipgloss by the feel on the lips.
And this is three layers, I love the color but everything else makes this gel tint unwearable for me. I've tried it on multiple times even over a lip pencil but I couldn't make it even or stay nice more that ten minutes. I'm very sorry about this I really thought this would be a good product and I like other three colors but I will skip on buying them. Have you tried these, have you find anything that makes them work well? Let me know if you did I would love to be able to wear this one.
