Essence Beauty, my review & first impressions!

Hey guys,

it’s nearly the weekend Yay, and … there’s only 13 days till Christmas double Yay! I’m so excited!

So today I’m gonna share with you some new products from Essence* that I recently have been using. I’ve always wanted to try this brand, but they were never available to buy here in the UK. Well you can now (finally) get them from Wilkinsons which is fab!

So I have an eyeshadow palette, lipstick and a nail polish here to show you.


So the eyeshadow palette is in number 7 ‘Over the Taupe’ and comes with 4 shades. First time I swatched it, I couldn’t believe how creamy and pigmented it was, so so nice for a budget brand! You get 3 matte shades and 1 shimmer. The selection of colours is beautiful, I really like taupes! I would definitely recommend it, great little palette and very affordable too! Retails for £3.00IMG_3702

Next we have the lipstick, in colour number 7 ‘Natural Beauty’ it’s just the perfect everyday colour for me. A lovely mauve pink, very creamy and moisturising. The packaging is also very nice. It retails for £2.30 which I think is a bargain! IMG_3696

Lastly we have the nail polish, such a lovely classic red shade number 187 ‘Juicy Love’ perfect for Christmas! It’s very opaque, and you only need one or two coats, it has a wide brush which really helps with the application. It retails for only £1.60 which is a bonus! 🙂


All in all I am very impressed with Essence, and I definitely need to pick up some more products to try! Have you guys have any recommendations?

Have a great day!
