Essence Cosmetics Review & swatches

After the last few exciting weeks of playing around with the lovely Essence products I have now finally almost finished with them, here are my thoughts on the following products…

To start off with the I love Nude range of eye shadows, they are so lovely and soft to the touch and apply well, the two Nude colors I tried worked well for a nice basic winter nude look and are also great for mixing with colors to spice it up a bit. Some of the shades I found were so close to my own skin tone that I couldn’t notice that I was wearing it but this is great if you want a nice “wear it to work” minimal look for the day. They lasted well on my eyes and made the day.

In order from Left to right in the pictures the colors are , 03 Creme Brulee , 05 My favorite touping , &15 Hazel me not (soft touch long wear)

Next up is the I love Nude lip items I tried out, I tested two of the long lasting lipsticks, one darker and one light as well as a Xxxl lip gloss in a Nude.  The lipstick wears well but I found the Lighter color (01 wear only a smile) to be a bit pasty on my lips and it also showed my dry lip skin and i would suggest if you want to wear this that you first exfoliate the lips cause it really does show up everything , it worked a bit better when combined with the Lip gloss! The darker shade lipstick in 03 come naturally was a lot more up my alley and wears very well! They do match well with the whole nude look :) And the Xxxl Lip gloss is very glossy, like very glossy lol. not really something im in to cause its a bit too sticky for me but it does give the lips good volume and they stand out wonderfully with shine! Bit like I say its just too sticky for me!

Then by now I am sure you all know how much I have been enjoying the latest Essence nail range and the Gel nail polish! They are just so fantastic! long lasting and the colors are great. I also loved the Nude ones as well as the very fun Matt top coat that gives a lovely effect when combined with the shiny gloss look! you can read my previous nails post to check out more about the colors .

Then Lastly i have the Lash Princess false lash effect Mascara, this one i was actually rather impressed with! it gives very long thick black false lash looking lashes so that’s a great budget buy if you are trying to get that Effect!! Also i tried the silky touch blush, its very lovely, feels so soft on skin and the peachy pink ish color works well and blends easily! definitely worth a try and all these products are very affordable!

Worth going out and buying some, great budget buys and you can get a good few items for your money, most of the products range from R30 to R100 and are good quality!
