When I spotted that Essence would be bringing out a primer, I was intrigued. 2017 has really been the year of the primer for me so far. I just wanted to try a few and it seems to be a makeup item that is becoming more and more popular too. That is of course why Essence decided to release this. But does this product do what it promises? Let’s find out.
Essence Fresh & Fit Awake Primer
In my first impressions video you will have seen that I was very impressed with some new liquid lipsticks Essence came out with. Meet the new Metal Shock and Vibrant Shock lip paints. These lip creams should be right on trend and offer velvet matte result. Let’s see how all shades work out.

I finally got round to shopping some new Essence products! I know these have been out for a few weeks already, but they are a little bit more difficult to get a hold of for me. That is why I took a little bit longer to order them so I can show you what is new. Not all of the products I am showing you are new to the line, but they are new to me. The result is an almost full face of Essence makeup. The only thing I am not showing you are brows and lashes.

Do brow products have to be expensive? That of course depends on your brow needs. I am of the opinion that brows is an area I can skimp on when it comes to my beauty expenses. My brows are pretty decent: a bit of filling in and some more definition is all they need to frame my face. No need to shape or reshape them (in my opinion), which is why I like to keep things simple and affordable. I decided to try some affordable options by Catrice and Essence.

You may have already seen this Eye & Face palette by Essence on the the blog. It already featured in the first impression video I did on the new spring/ summer 2017 collection. But since that was the first time I was using it, I thought it would be good to revisit and write a full review as well.
Essence Eye & Face Palette 02 Rise & Shine
For spring 2017 Essence did not only renew its standard line, but they also released a brand new limited edition. When I spotted it in store, I figured it would be nice to try some products out. My interest was piqued mostly by the nail effect pigments, which can transform your average polish into a (duo)chrome extravaganza. However, I of course cannot say no to a rainbow highlighter and a pretty eyeshadow palette either. This is the review.

The new Essence products were already featured in a first impressions video a few weeks ago, but those were just first impressions. Usually when I try products for a while longer I will truly be able to tell how I feel about a product. Also, there is only so much make up you can try on in one go and that meant that I wasn’t able to show all of the products on my face in that video. Which is why I am bringing you a full review of the new Essence Blush Play Sculpting Blush Palette today.
