Essence brand review.

A few weeks back I was lucky enough to be sent some products from the brand Essence, I have used some of their products in the past so was so excited to try out more and expected great things from them! In this post I want to talk about the products I received and give a short review on them so if you want to find out more then keep reading...

Essence brand review.
Now if you've been here for a while you will know that I'm a nude girl and very rarely jump out of my comfort zone, I am conscious of my lip shape and have before now had never successfully over lined my lips to how I wanted them, but this lipstick shade made it so easy to do!
 I also got compliments on my lipstick which I must say I never normally do so I mean, that's got to be a sign right? I struggle with having dry lips so the creaminess of the Essence lipsticks has always been something I enjoyed and was not disappointed with this one, my lips looked healthy and for once I didn't have to worry about it cracking throughout the day.

This shade complimented the lip colour perfectly and was just as buttery, I tend to not use lip liners and just wing it usually but It's something I'm trying to change as it really does make a difference! This shade again isn't one I'd choose myself but am so happy I received it as apparently essence know me better than I know myself, because I love it! Click HERE to buy it.

Essence brand review.  Now I have to admit that I have the worst toes on this planet, like honestly they're gross and I wouldn't want to offend Essence by promoting their product that badly, but I did apply this polish to my toes nearly 2 weeks ago (couldn't do nails due to acrylics) and it's still on! It has a few miner chips but I think that's more down to the colour being dark that you can just notice them more! I have used essence polishes in the past and especially love the gel ones so again, I already knew I'd love this product. Just in case it's not that clear by the photos, this is a gorgeous deep red shade! Click HERE to buy it.

Essence brand review.
My excitement for receiving this was unreal, I was actually on my way to college when I was opening it and had completely forgot to blend my fake lashes into my natural ones so I mean yeah, you could say it saved my day! This mascara has a big wand which I personally love as I feel it grabs on to my lashes better and gives them more volume, the formula is also long lasting and is so annoying to get off...which I guess is a good thing!  I've been wanting to try an Essence mascara ever since the princess lash blew up as a big thing so I'll defiantly be buying that next. This mascara also claims to be 'eye opening', which in my opinion it is. Click  HERE to buy.

Essence brand review.
The first thing I have to say about this is how gorgeous it is, I think it's so nice when company's spend time putting a pattern or texture into their powder products and it defiantly makes me more likely to buy it! I've only recently got into blush so am still trying to find what shades I like on my skin but I absolutely aim more towards pinky corals which I mean, this one is so bull's-eye! To be able to have such a creamy texture for under £3 is incredible and Essence as a brand should b so proud of themselves. Click HERE to buy it.

Overall I think Essence is such a reliable brand that I'm not surprised in the slightest at the product quality, it just goes to show that drugstore products can do all the things high end products can, but at a much affordable price!

  1. I always nose at this stand when I see it but never purchase anything for some reason! the lip colours are sooo pretty tho - will have to keep an eye out next time xXx

    1. I was the same for a while! The lipsticks are deffo the best thing they sell and they have a great nude collection 😊 Let me know if you end up getting anything! Xx

  2. I love it when drugstore brands do everything a high end brand can do. I'm so annoyed that I've not actually thought to try these, even though I've come across them multiple times. Thank you for helping me see the light.
    Loved this post (:


    1. Omg yay! You'll have to let me know what you think of them beaut!x
