Essence just released their new limited edition for winter 2017. When I spotted they do a 12 pan eyeshadow palette that reminds me of Urban Decay’s Naked 3 palette, I knew I had to try to get my hands on it. The new Winter Dreams eyeshadow palette is surprisingly good in my opinion.

For their renewed line Essence revamped their lipstick range. There are new colors in both their longlasting line as well as their matte line. I decided to try a few. I like Essence lipsticks, but I was never really wowed by them. Will the new range blow me off my feet?

Shimmer and shine is the IT makeup aspect of the season. Be it in a lip color (shimmery lip gloss is back in vogue people!), an eyeshadow or in a blush: if it’s got a metallic shine it is all the rage right now. And I like a good deal of shine. In an eyeshadow, but not so much on my cheeks if it isn’t a highlight. Still, I was curious when I spotted these new Metal Chrome blushes by Essence. So I decided to pick one up and try it out.

It’s getting darker and darker as we’re nearing the winter season and that means that any which way you can brighten up a day is very welcome. Makeup wise that means whipping out some extra highlighter. And what better way to do that than with a holographic highlighter? Essence has decided to bring out that extra sparkle and have introduced a holographic highlighter stick to their range. But is it any good?

My first Essence foundation became a fact with the release of the new Fresh & Fit foundation. This foundation is the first one that appealed to me as it finally seemed to come in a light enough shade. Because that is the main issue with Essence foundation: the shade range. So how did I fair with this?

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.

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.
