I was kindly sent several items to take part in a challenge and recreate a makeup look for £10 or under, of course I accepted especially as I have been loving Essence’s products at the minute – I have found them to be a great budget brand and cruelty free! The look I created cost only £7.56.
If you have never heard of Essence Cosmetics before then they are they do not test on animals but bring amazing quality for affordable prices allowing everyone to try out their brand
*Get BIG! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara (RRP £2.29)
I love mascara but usually they do not really do much for my lashes unfortunately but this I do like, this mascara is jet black which I always tend to get when it comes to choosing mascara colours. The brush is thick and brushes through your lashes easily without clumping them together.
*Quattro Eye Shadow 07 Over The Taupe (RRP £2.99)
I have used Essence’s Quattro palette before (HERE) and I must say they are great especially for what they are priced at! This ‘Over The Taupe’ palette is great for recreating a smokey eye. I used the white, light grey and dark grey to create the look shown on my eyes which I believe brings out my blue eyes. The eyeshadows are creamy, highly pigmented and stay put for quite a while.
*Kajal Eyeliner 15 Behind The Scenes (RRP £0.99)
The shade of this eyeliner is absolutely stunning! A lovely deep glittery grey which makes a change from my usual black eyeliner, I created a cat eye with this. What I love about this eyeliner is that it is creamy so it glides across your eyelids instead of pulling on them and you can also use it to create a smokey eye.
*Lipliner 06 Satin Mauve (RRP £0.99)
This is probably a shade that I would not have usually have chosen but I am in love! The texture is creamy so it is super easy to apply to your lips and lasts quite a long time even through eating and drinking.
Overall, I love the look that I recreated with these products that I have used and for £7.56 it is amazing!
Have you used any of these products before? What do you think? I would love to know.
