Essence concealers are a bit hit or miss for me, but their affordable price point mean I keep on trying them. For a long time, Essence concealers didn’t come in a light enough shade for me, but they are doing some now that seem light enough. What do I think about the Essence Camouflage + Matt & Healthy Glow concealers?

Would you believe me if I said that I have never tried any of the infamous Essence blushes? The Matt Touch blushes are famous because of their affordable price point and outstanding quality. So I decided to change that faux pas in my makeup collection and tried a new shade that I found when I was shopping for the new Essence fall/ winter 2018 products. So what are my thoughts?

You know I have to try it when Essence releases a new foundation. So when I spotted the #Insta Perfect foundation, I knew I wanted to give it a go. Because whenever a budget friendly foundation comes along that has potential, I am all game for trying it. And there is another reason why this foundation is unique in Essence’s range: it is their first foundation that comes in more than 3 shades.

I am forever trying to find cool face powders. When it comes to powders I tend to not be too picky: if they make my makeup last I am usually happy. But not all powders are created equal. I had never tried a powder before that comes in this loose pearl form. Or course inspired by the infamous Guerlain Meteorites, Essence has done an affordable dupe that I couldn’t wait to try.

The wait is over! Many people have been asking me after I posted my Catrice video, whether I would also be doing one on the new Essence products for the Fall/ Winter 2018. Of course I would! And today is the day. Essence always releases their new line a little bit later than Catrice and I got my hands on some pretty cool, but also some pretty bad products. Curious to see how I fared with these products? Then watch the video below!

The Essence eyeshadow formula has not been my favorite for a long time. I usually enjoy their limited edition palettes, but the palettes they stick in their regular line never appeal much to me. I did not love the All About… palettes like most people as I felt they had an overspray that disappeared after a couple of uses. The newer My Only 1 palette was a complete disaster for me. Will I have more luck with the In Love With Rose eyeshadow box?

When I spotted Essence came out with a build it your own palette, I got excited. Essence is a super affordable brand and if this panned out, it could be one of those rare drugstore gems. This palette doesn’t have to be just eyeshadows: the My Must Haves range includes lipsticks, blush, powder and even a bronzer. So you could build a palette that could do most of your face in one go.
