Makeup just became so much more fun and full of vibrance, whether you are 10 or 90, there is definitely a makeup product to suit your needs. So my beauties stop and take a moment to look at this lovely fun and girlie beauty brand Essence .
At first I was a bit unsure about this brand but something was intriguing me to take a closer look. Essence is an extremely affordable ethical brand & not tested on animals. Although it’s a less expensive brand, the quality is so much better than you would expect with fun packaging and a wide variety and style of products available.
Let’s start with some highlighter.
Lips Go Wow Palette It’s so hard to find a good lip palette these days and its something I absolutely love over actual lipsticks. Thankfully Essence have brought out three different shade palettes in their Lip Art Collection for only an amazing £3.50 and I’m hoping the trend for lip palettes is going to be on the up. The lovely little pocket sized compact pictured offers 4 shades from a medium nude to a deep dark plum.
I’d say these apply more like a tinted balm rather than a lipstick from the consistency of the product, it definitely feels more like a nourishing balm, perfect to give your lips a lovely nourishing tint.
Essence Prismatic Rainbow Highlighter A lovely subtle glimmer of colourful highlight for only £3.50 for the swatches shown here. I’ve gone heavy handed just so you can see the shades properly but for a highlighter you want it to be just a glow without being too overpowering and that’s the beauty of this highlighter, it’s light enough to be buildable for accurate layers until you get your desired result which is nice. My favourite shade is the golden hue below the bright pink. The quality is fabulous for the price, it’s not chalky and doesn’t give much fall out.
Essence Nail Polish and Rock in a bottle loose nail glitter (only £2!). A nail glitter that you can take off in a flash. This lovely little bottle of sparkly soft glitter is applied over any wet nail polish. All you do is paint your nail, shake the bottle and tap the glitter down to hold, then wait a few minutes for it to dry.
I would suggest applying a little Vaseline around your nail bed so it’s easy to remove once applied as like any glitter it loves to stick to your skin. Thankfully it wipes off easily with any nail polish remover or wipe without the horrible gritty feeling you get from glitter polishes.
