Catrice & Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 Collection Update

catrice essence fall winter 2019 haul update review

It is time for an update. An update on the Catrice and Essence Fall/ Winter 2019 collection. I tried both of these when they came out over the summer, but that was of course just a first impression. By now I have tried everything a bit more and while full reviews may be pending, I did want to update you on which of these products worked for me and which didn’t. What are the standout products and which should you pass up on? These products will be available for a few more months at least, so it should give you enough of an overview to decide what might be of interest.

Essence You Better Work Eye Primer

Essence You Better Work Eye Primer

Up to this point, the Essence You Better Work line has been unsuccessful for me. The primer didn’t prime, the tinted moisturizer was too orange and the makeup fixing spray gave me an allergic reaction. So that was a bit of dud and you can understand that I was apprehensive when I ran out of eyeshadow primer and I had to start using a new one. Thinking I would have to give up on this as soon as the other products, but let me tell you: I am pleasantly surprised.

Essence Disney Princess Collection

I am super excited for today’s video! It is a bit late perhaps, but when Essence teams up with Disney to do a limited edition Disney Princess collection including eyeshadow palettes, highlighters and brushes then of course I have to check it out. It was tricky to get my hands on this stuff, but luckily a German friend was kind enough to forward a package to my home. So I received these palettes, tried them out and to spice up the video a little bit, I am also throwing in a palette bingo using all three eyeshadow palettes that I picked up. I hope you enjoy!

You may have already seen me wearing this highlighter in some of the makeup looks in my videos, but the new Essence highlighter definitely warrants a full review. Naturally it is an affordable products that packs a true punch and that is surprisingly good, especially considering the cost. So of course, when a product is this cheap and this good I have to tell you more about it.

It’s finally here! The longawaited Catrice & Essence limited edition Royal Party/ Sister Love has arrived in stores and I lucked out and found an untouched display and was able to pick up all the palettes I wanted from this collection. This limited edition features 14 eye and face palettes of which I picked up 3: 1 by Catrice and 2 by Essence. What drew me in? Well everything about this collection: from the packaging, to the shade selection. The only question I still had: is the quality any good? So I decided to do a first impression video in which I test these out for the first time. Here we go!

This video is one I am doing on request. I have been asked to try the Essence This Is Me Nude lipsticks for some time now and I decided to do a dedicated video to the entire line. This line features 8 lipsticks that retail for €2.39 each. That is not only super affordable, but this range of lipsticks has a nude for everyone. In this review I swatch the full collection and try on each shade on my lips. Here we go!

The small, but curated Essence Fall/ Winter update contains some product in the new Crystal Power line. When I bought the products not all of them were available just yet, but of the ones I got, I was of course most curious for the eyeshadow palette. When I tried it in my first impression’s video I wasn’t super enthusiastic as it didn’t seem like a palette that was up my street. Now that I have tried it more: did I change my mind about it?
