Essence 1

Essence Makeup has been on my radar for a really long time and over the years I have picked up one or two things. A lippy here, a nail polish there but never many products.

I wanted to bring you my thoughts on the products I have firmly in my makeup collection.

MascarasEssence 2

Essence 3

I picked up the lash princess mascara in sculpted volume (purple print) and volume (peach print) and both have been really impressive. I have actually finished the sculpted volume and so far it’s been my favourite.

It has a curved natural bristle brush and the formula seems to be less clumpy. The volume one has plastic bristles and they look like a adder head (similar to the MUR viper mascara).

They also have one with green print and I really want to try that one.

These come in at £3.30 each and for mascara that performs better than some of my higher end mascaras it’s an absolute steal!


This is my holy grail eyeliner. It’s super fine, it’s super easy to use, it’s jet black. It’s just stunning. If you want to get the perfect winged liner look no further than this super mazing eyeliner. Even the name says it all, Super Precise Eyeliner.

They have a couple of others but they don’t have the brush like tip.

This holy grail product comes in at £2.30!!!

These blushplay blush palettes are brilliant. 2 shades, one for definition and one for sculpting (which it says on the pan) and a highlighter.

I have been picking these up so much. The colours are really pigmented and they blend well.

I have to admit I wasn’t expecting much but I saw they had ‘new’ next to them and I thought they looked different and exciting.

Each of the palettes are £4.00 which I can’t quite believe.

What do you think of these? Would you pick them up?
