ESSENCE | Not Really Happy

Hey guys, been focusing soo much on skin care these days on the blog that make-up has taken a backseat, so I just thought that I should share with you some new make-up from the affordable brand Essence. This range has it's good, great and ridiculous items that have launched recently. So without wasting any of your time with the long intro let us get into it.


1. Essence Volume Stylist Mascara
2. Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss
3. Essence Glow & Care Nailpolish

These 3 products are the best, as they are affordable and do exactly what they need to do. I like that Essence did proper lip-glosses that are not matte, these lip-glosses are pigmented and long lasting. The nailpolish glow & care is that perfect weekday shade that just goes well with every outfit (and will be featuring it this Manicure Monday).

1. Lip base: Lets Get It Started
2. Lip powder: Everybody Dance Now
3. Eyeshadow: Everybody Dance Now
4. Eyeshadow: T.G.I.F.

This is not one of my most favorite palette from Essence, I get the Lip base, lip powder concept however the shades do come out very patchy so this one is a no no for me. The eyeshadow shades everybody dance now and T.G.I.F are also not that flattering on darker skin tones.

2. Eyeshadow: Raspberry Frosting
3. Eyeshadow: Black as a Berry
4. Black is back

This eyeshadow palette Essence did try to redeem themselves with the shades I would say that all the colours are usable for people with darker skin tones so I'm not going to complain that much. 

Please remember that with the My Must Haves you have options to pick and choose which eyeshadows, lip powders you would like to have as they are each sold separately including the palette itself.  

Could this be the ashiest bronzer in town? I think so, I'm really not happy with the bronzers in this range, even the darker skin shade is not that dark and honey if you are a dark skin sister like me, just stay away from this product. 

Overall I'm in-between with my New In Essence products, Essence can do better you know. I'm just crossing my fingers that when I go shopping this month-end I find something better.

What's your take on the new Essence products?
