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

For fall 2018, Essence has of course also released some new lip products. They have revamped their entire line of velvet matte lipsticks and introduced some new liquid lipsticks too. Where I wasn’t a huge fan of the new Catrice lip products as they are not my cup of tea, I am much more excited about showing you these new Essence lip products. So let’s get to it.

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

Essence Camouflage Matt & Healthy Glow concealer

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? essence matt touch blush review swatch blossom me up

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.  essence insta perfect liquid makeup foundation swatch review cool porcelain
