Essence haul

Ok..I admit I am obsessed with that brand! The story goes like this...I was watching a video on youtube and the girl was using Essence products, then I visited the closest Hondos and I found the Essence counter, and visited it again and again and again :P


First of all let me tell you what I bought...
gel eyeliner brush
powder brush
2in1 volume mascara
mono eyeshadow in 02 dance all night
multi colour blush in 20 fashionista
stay with me longlasting lipgloss in  01 me & my icecream
fix and matte translucent loose powder
gel eyeliner in 01 midnight in paris
colour & go nailpolish in 78 blue addicted

mono eyeshadow in 04 black goddess
colour & go nail polish in 43 where is the party?
smokey eyes brush
blush brush

Now, about the products...I am very pleased by the quality. The truth is that I wasn't expecting them to be as good because of their extremelly low price, but I was wrong.

The brushes are soft, feel good and I can work really well with them, and what crazy colours are those, huh?
The eyeshadows have amazing colour payoff and they lasted me all day long (over a base) without creasing.
Here are some close-ups:


The mascara creates amazing volume, but you have to be careful because it can get a little messy. You have the option to create 2 looks, one more "day appropriate" and the second super dramatic one.

The blush is ok...it comes of just pink,but I like the packaging.

I am in love with thee eyeliner. It is really smooth. I have it two months now and it hasn't dried out. It is a super blod black colour and I can't wait to try some more. I also like the smell of it. (weirdo)

The lipgloss is cute and girlie. I usually wear it over Lush's Snow Fairy lip balm and I love the result!

The powder is descent. It is quite ok if you want a matte result. Nothing really special but it works.

They have some pretty amazing nail polish colours. The one with the shimmer (78-blue addicted) lasted for a week. The other one (43 where is the party?) chipped the second day.


There is a new collection out now (well not yet in my closest hondos...............) that you should definately check out. I can't wait! Have you tried any Essence products? What is your opinion about them?
cu soon!
