From drug store to high end brands, Essence is one which comes up with new range of makeup and beauty products every season. They have limited editions and some permanent line and the price they offer is highly irresistible. However depending on products the quality may vary and you can have love and hate relationship with this brand. I have tried many products from Essence and have few very good experiences while other not very much. Today i am going to share my favorite products from Essence which i totally loved and have been using them a lot. So let me tell you what are those.
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in Be My Highlight
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in Be My Highlight- $5
This highlight got instantly popular among beauty bloggers and vloggers and in my opinion the best highlighter from Essence. It is a warm tone medium golden-peach shade. It have a baked formula with intense pigmentation which is non powdery and melt into the skin after application while giving it more natural finish. The texture is very soft which applies and blends beautifully. It is perfect for ones who love bold and warm golden highlights as it is medium to intense highlighter. It lasts very long and doesn't emphasis pores or lines.
Essence All About Nude Eye Shadow Palette - PKR780
This palette contains 6 eyeshadows which are perfect for your neutral eye makeup. If you do not want to spend your budget on expensive neutral eyeshadow palettes then this can be a pick for you. Although the packaging is not very appealing because it will get all scratchy and dirty after some time but the eyeshadows are very good. This palette have more pink brown shades which i like but Essence do have other version called All about nudes which have 8 eyeshadows and consist of more brown shades.
The shade details form left to right in above swatches are very light yellow golden shimmery shade, light peach with satin finish, rosy pink with champagne-gold shimmer, very light shimmery pink shade, medium brown shade with satin finish and dark plum brown shade with frost finish. All the shades have good pigmentation with soft texture which is easy to apply and blend. The only down side is that you will face some fallout and that problem can be solved if you use wet brushes which will give you very good results.
Essence Silky Touch Blush Life's a Cherry
Essence Silky Touch Blush Life's a Cherry - PKR470
The texture of these blushes are very soft, easy to apply and blend. The good thing about these blushes they do not fallout and you can control the pick on your brush. The shade Life's a cherry is bright rosy pink shade which have intense pigmentation and is perfect for Asian skin tone. It is better to handle it with light hand and build further as you desire. This blush gives the feel of matte in pan but on application they provide a sheen giving your cheeks a natural glow which in my opinion look beautiful as it is not shimmery or glittery. There are quite lovely shade options in this range from light to dark and you can easily get one of your favorite.
Essence Make Me Brow Gel Mascara in browny brows - PKR480
I have already talked about this brow mascara in my post about Best eye brow products some times ago and i still love it every bit. It is quick solution for your unruly brow hairs, it not only tame them, provide natural color but also keeps them place for very long. The formula is not sticky and feels very comfortable on brows then brow wax. The browny brows is a perfect shade for dark brown eye brows.
I have tried some Essence mascara but none came close to the performance this mascara provides. The wand have long cone shape brush applicator which is perfect to reach to all lashes . The thick formula set the lashes in place for very long and as it is non water proof so it doesn't make lashes stiff. This fact makes it perfect for every day as daily use of water proof mascara can result in weak eye lashes. Having said that this mascara gives amazing volume and lengthening effect to lashes. So if you have sparse or small lashes this will definitely give you effect of false lashes.
Essence Eyebrow Designer - PKR280
One more product which counts in my best eye brow products. I have written detailed review about Eyeborw designer. It is easy way to line and define the eyebrows. When you need a little fix in over plucked or sparse lashes this pencil can be your savior and after using it for very long the formula is same as it was at first and it lasts very very long.
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick Barely There - PKR430
I have tried few shades from Essence long lasting range and my most favorite shade is Barely there. It is gorgeous warm tone medium dusty pink-brown shade. I have shared my detailed review of Barely There before and i always reach for it when i need any safe color for every day or want to pair it with bold eyes. This shade is perfect for all skin tones and give your lips a perfect pink neutral touch.
