I was kindly sent a few items from Essence Cosmetics to review, recently I have been a huge fan of this brand from what I have tested (review here) and read from other blogs their products are within a budget price range and a high standard of quality which is always great when looking for a makeup brand. If you have never heard of Essence before they do not test on animals but bring amazing quality for affordable prices allowing everyone to try out their brand.
*Long Lasting Lipstick – 07 Natural Beauty (RRP £2.29)
I received the shade ‘Natural Beauty’ which is encased in a matte finish holder giving more of a high quality feel to the product considering the price. I absolutely adore the colour! once applied to my lips it is subtle which is great for work, it also lasts for a couple of hours before reapplication is needed. The consistency is quite creamy making application easier, it is also great for my dry skin as it does not bring it out even when it has dried out.
*Quattro Eye Shadow Palette – 15 Most Wanted (RRP £2.99)
I love the shades in this ‘Most Wanted’ palette they come in silver, brass, gold and brown. The silver doubles up a brow highlighter which I have been using it for and it looks great, the shades are amazingly pigmented and long lasting. The only downfall I would say about this product is that when I have been removing it I have noticed glitter was left behind.
*Colour & Go Nail Varnish 81 (RRP £1.59)
I am not really one for red nail polish but this shade would definitely be perfect for christmas nails, a gorgeous glittery cranberry shade. This nail varnish applies nice and easy with only one coat needed for maximum coverage, also it dries easily so perfect if your in a rush.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with the high quality of these products for such a good price, they are definitely a must for those who have a beauty budget.
