15 Years Of Essence

Monday, August 14, 2017
Essence has been one of my favourite brands for the past three or so years, since I was invited to the brand launch in the UK! The event was amazing, I received an incredibly generous goodie bag and met some lovely bloggers; it also started my love of Essence!

The brand recently celebrated it's 15 birthday which is amazing and I was very kindly sent a gorgeous box filled with party hats, confetti, sweets, balloons and of course, Essence makeup which made a dull monday morning much more exciting.
Today I wanted to share some of my favourite products from Essence over the years as there are so many and they are well worth checking out! My favourite product by far is the fantastic Essence All About Matte Fixing Compact Powder which I've gone through at least two of already and I'm now on my third. The powder just makes my skin look amazing and it helps to keep my makeup in place all day - if you only buy one thing from Essence, make sure it's this powder!

Another favourite is more of a category of products and that's mascara. I've tried so many mascaras from Essence and they are all fantastic. They are so inexpensive, they work really well and I particularly love the waterproof mascaras in their range. I'm now using the Essence Volume Stylist Mascara which I'm loving.
Another category is lipsticks and while they aren't the most long lasting, they are so comfortable, inexpensive and pigmented. The same goes for their eyeliners, I love the Liquid Ink Liner and the pencils too. Lastly, I have to mention their nail polishes which are so fantastic and pretty much everything I look for in a nail polish - pigmented, easy and quick to apply, great shade range and as with everything from Essence, they are so cheap!

Here's a short video of the amazing box of goodies and some swatches too!


Have you tried anything from Essence? If so, what are your favourite products?

  2. I was shocked to find it had been around for 15 years and admittedly it is a brand I don't know much about or have used much from z

  5. I did not know they were 15 already, that's amazing! how does the powder work with fixing in place concealer? I find most powders make my under eye look darker...

  9. I think Essence is one of the best drugstore brands around. I really wish they'd get into Superdrug so their collection is more accessible because I am a huge fan of theirs.
