Essence Banana powder

Essence Banana powder

Essence is well known for doing good face powders, but I haven’t tried that many by the brand. So far I only used the Correct To Perfect powder pearls and that wasn’t a huge success. However, when they started doing a banana powder that seemed light enough for me, I knew I wanted to try it.

Essence Luminous Matt bronzer

essence luminour matt bronzer lightest shade review swatch

Finding a good, affordable bronzer is quite the task, so whenever I find one that looks like a good option, I of course want to try it. Case in point: the Essence Luminous Matt bronzer. This bronzer is very affordable and it is the first bronzer from Essence’s regular line that has not looked too orange or dark for my skin. How much do I like this bronzer?

A good affordable primer is hard to come by and so whenever I find one that sounds interesting I always want to give them a try. For their new fall/ winter 2018 make up line, Essence released three different ones and I decided to pick up one. Meet the Essence Prime + Studio Glow Boosting Primer.

Essence Be You Tiful eyeshadow palette

Essence has released a bunch of new eyeshadow palettes, which means I want to try at least one of them. My experience with Essence eyeshadow palettes hasn’t been the best. Especially with palettes that are part of their regular line up, I have had some bad experiences which I have reviewed here and here. In general, I have most luck with their limited edition palettes, such as the one released last summer. Since they are so hit or miss for me, I am always a bit apprehensive going into them, but today we are reviewing one of the newest palettes to the line up. Let’s have a closer look at the Essence Be You Tiful eyeshadow palette. essence be you tiful eyeshadow palette review swatch

Catrice & Essence haul update

Catrice & Essence haul update

In July & September I tried some new Essence & Catrice products in two different first impression videos. I always do these when these two affordable brands change up their makeup lines for the new season, which happens twice a year. So far I have gotten around to reviewing a few of the items I showed in those videos, but not everything will be making the review cut. That is why I figured I would film a video to give you my thoughts on them.  catrice & essence haul update
