I am going to let you into a secret. Some time ago I was sent some Essence cosmetics to try. The range had just launched in the UK and I was unable to make the launch event. I was interested to try the new range and I was sent some samples. I have been using the Essence make up often but I have kept quiet about it until now. I was impressed with the range as to me it is smart, stylish and cleverly designed. It is also a great price.
The Essence cosmetic range can be found at Wilkinsons and the range would make a great addition to your festive make up bag. I was sent a selection of different products, eye shadow, eye liner, lip gloss, mascara and nail polish. I tried the nail polish first as I loved the blue colour. When I opened the bottle I was struck by the size of the brush, it is large and it made applying the colour to my nails really easy. Two strokes and my nail was done and one coat looked perfect. It also lasted well without chipping.
The Essence metal glam eyeshadow was a fabulous colour, perfect for party eyes. Easy to apply and the right size to carry in your handbag. The lipgloss has a nice wide applicator and goes onto your lips without being sticky. The eyeliner is great as it contains both a black and a white in the same pencil. This cuts down clutter in your make up bag and allows you to create a glamorous eye.
The one thing I really did like though was the design of the mascara. It comes in a unique tube which you can roll up as you use it, allowing you to always know how much you have left. I hate not knowing how much mascara is in a tube and often find I have run out just when I want to use some. The mascara applied well and gave a lovely look to my eyes as well.I really like the Essence cosmetics range and will be going out to get more soon.
I was sent some Essence cosmetics in return for an honest review.
