Essence Makeup!

Shoppers is an addicting store! I constantly find myself trekking around town to see the different locations. Today while out for an appointment, I stopped off there and got three items from the Essence line. I heard a Youtuber (CityandMakeup) say in one of her vlogs that the line has some hits and misses, and I totally agree.   With anything there will be some products that are amazing and some that are not that great. Yes it is kinda plasticky looking but what can you expect from a line that is really inexpensive. Although it is plasticky I don't think the packaging is awful by any means. I have yet to be disappointed, so far I have a blush, one eyeshadow, a lip gloss and a lip stick, the blush was from a previous purchase. There are minor imperfections in the product but it doesn't really turn me off.


   Essence Eyeshadow- Party all Night

Likes: It is a beautiful bronze metallic color which I adore! 

Essence  XXXl Shine Lip Gloss- Nude Candy

Likes: The color is something that I have been looking for; a milkier nude gloss. I was obsessed with the idea of buying a NARS gloss called Turkish Delight, but that didn't work out haha!

Dislikes: I don't really like how skinny the doe-foot applicator is..usually glosses have a nice applicator that can cover the lips in one stroke, but I find that this one is very narrow

       Essence  Lipstick- In the Nude


As you can tell I like my nudes! I am not very funky with my lip color, I prefer soft pinks and nudes that's about it.

Likes: Love how smooth it applies, not drying and oppose to other lipsticks that are thick this one has a good consistency. It has also has shine a to it which is nice.

I also forgot to mention that the smell of both the lip products is sooooo niceee! Ohh and the gloss is not sticky at all..bonuss!

Have you tried out any Essence products? What do you think?

Talk to you soon :)

  1. it seems like a lot of people are talking about the Essence brand lately! it reminds me of wet n wild, and I'm usually wary of these 'cheapie' brands because they don't usually put 'good stuff' in their cosmetics, but rather cheap stuff that we shouldn't be consuming/absorbing. I try to use more natural lines if/when I can.

    1. That is so true! I know there are many harmful and unwanted substances put into skin care and makeup these days (paraban). It would be cool if you could so a post about it outlining the major additives we should steer clear from, I know some of the names but have no clue what their effect is!
