Essence Autumn/Winter Picks

Wednesday, September 21, 2016
Essence has been one of my favourite highstreet brands for the past couple of years and I cannot recommend their products enough - I've been lucky enough to be sent quite a lot of products over the past couple of years but I've purchased items myself as I genuinely love the brand. Today's post is all about a few of the new autumn/winter products from Essence that I'm loving!

Let's start with one of my favourite Essence products, mascaras. The *Essence Rock 'n' Doll Mascara (£2.80) which I've been using so much recently. The mascara makes my lashes defined, super black and volumized but not a crazy amount of volume as it claims but for the price it's a fantastic mascara. I personally adore their waterproof mascaras.

Another product that Essence makes really well is nail polish; I have the new *Essence The Gel Polish in 78 Royal Blue (£1.60) which is the perfect shade for the autumn/winter months; I don't have anything quite like this shade in my collection. The brush is so wide, it makes application very quick and easy - it's so really opaque so only one coat is needed. I don't have the base coat or top coat from the range so it doesn't last that long but it's still well worth trying!
Next up, the very on trend *Essence Matt Matt Matt Long-lasting Lip Gloss in Girl Of Today which is such a gorgeous dusky rose shade that is definitely the kind of shade that I love to wear all year round. The applicator is a little unusual and quite large but it's a lovely product. I love the almost mousse like texture and while it doesn't dry down to be fully matte, it does have a nice finish. It lasts through drinking and eating but not quite as well as the NYX products I've tried although it is half the price.

Finally, the *Essence The Metals Single Shadow in Deep Sea Shimmer (£2) which is such a gorgeous shade and again it's unlike any other shade in my collection. I'm not a massive fan of single shadows as I don't tend to reach for them as much as palettes. The pigmentation isn't amazing when used dry but it would be great if you just wanted a simple wash of colour - when used wet it is very pigmented! It would be perfect for a smokey eye with a red lip!

Overall, I cannot recommend Essence products enough! I love the packaging, shades, quality and the price - you really can't beat Essence products. I love their lip products, polishes and mascaras. To see more Essence products, check out my other posts. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5!

  8. Esssence nail polishes are awesome! I love the full brush on them. Mind you, they don't last super long... but pretty decent for the price.
