Essence Fairytale Lip Gloss, retails for $2, is a shimmery lilac/purple with a touch of gray. The gloss (which by the way has an artificial fruit scent) seems to have a somewhat thick conistency. It's harder to dig out the product especially with the small/stiff doe-foot applicator.
I have not tried many purple lilac lip gloss in the past but Essence Berry Fairy, as it turns out, is easily one of the worst. It's not pigmented like L'Oreal Grape Soda or Revlon Endless Lilac not as moisturizing as Mac soft note or NYC grape crush.This Essence gloss is no different from any other cheap drugstore glosses that ends up looking clear on the lips...Of course, I could always use this kind of gloss to wash down/soften up a lipstick:Vintage Pink
(the formula for this particular shade is amazing). You can probably get this kind of result just a bout any shimmery gloss so overall: Not worth it, not even for 2 bucks.
