New Essence releases

I am aware I've been a bit AWOL at the moment! Moving into uni and settling into a new house has been hard but I'm all settled now and am finally getting into a little bit of a routine. Today I thought I would talk about some of the bits I've recently picked up from the brand. I love Essence as a brand, their products are high quality but super affordable, so without further ado lets get into the products. 

Insta perfect foundation - I love the packaging of this, its super cute and easy for travel. It's a little plastic bottle and is perfect for chucking in a makeup bag. The foundation itself is medium coverage and is incredibly comfortable and lightweight on the skin. I have to say I've been really impressed, a lot of essence products aren't pale enough for me at my palest however this one is super duper pale. It just sits so nicely on my dry skin and is a fab everyday kind of foundation. 

Camouflage + concealer - I love the original camouflage concealer so when I saw the new higher coverage one I knew I needed to give it a go. This is super high coverage, it isn't one I would reach for all the time but when I want a really high coverage face this is one thats perfect. Again the shade is super pale and matches me at even my lightest. 

Matt Blushes - The blushes are my favourite super affordable blush, they have just enough pigment and even though there aren't that shades in the range they cover a really good range. They blend really beautifully and look natural on the skin. These are definitely ones I would recommend if you are starting out. The two shades I picked up are new, I love a good nude peach colour so I was instantly drawn to that one and the brighter berry shade was one I decided would be perfect for winter. 

Melted chrome shadows - These are brand new and I am obsessed. They are super highly metallic and work both wet and dry. I've been wearing so many cut creases on my eyes recently and these look beautiful on the lid. I was a little concerned that they might seal however I haven't had any problem with that thus far even after using them wet. Out of the three shades the more rose gold shade is definitely my favourite. 

Electric vibes pencil liners - I've been experimenting with colour on my eyes recently so these really attracted me. They're super neon bright shades, the blue is definitely my favourite out of the two as it is a lot more pigmented. They are both however super creamy and easy to apply in the water line. 

I need a miracle mascara - This is meant to tint the lashes as you use it but I have to say I haven't noticed that at all. That being said I have been loving this mascara, it's super volumising and gives the lashes lots of lift and curl. I'm largely a fan of the Essence mascaras and this is definitely one of the best ones I've tried. 

That's it for today, I'd love to know what you've recently tried from Essence.

  6. Essence is one of my favourite brands - I need to try more x

  7. Essense eyeshadows are an all time favourite. When the brand first came to the UK, they were some of the first things I bought. These new melted chrome eye shadows look phenomenal.

    The camouflage and concealer looks right up my ally too. Fellow pale girl here so very pleased about the availability of lighter shades for fair skin. Hope the shade range is good and varied enough to suit lots of different skin tones. x


  8. I haven't tried anything out by Essence for such a long time, I might have to try out some goodies soon!
