Don’t Overlook This Brand! Surprising quality for insanely cheap!

Hi friends!

Just wanted to do a quick post on a brand I’ve grown to love in the past little while that I used to always overlook. I think the first product I ever bought from them was a grey nail polish with orange duochrome, that was about a year ago, and I really liked it! I only went back to it after my hairdresser recommended their lipgloss as a great soothing lip moisturizer.

And that brand is…


Yes, essence! You guys may have been able to see this if you’ve kept up with my previous blog posts. The avengers series used a lot of essence products, and I’ve done a review on one of their mascaras.

Here’s a list of products I’ve tried and totally recommend from essence:

Essence Longlasting Lipstick

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 10.11.25 PMThese lipsticks are really nice. They are buttery, fairly good pigment, and the taste isn’t totally awful like some cheaper products. They do not last through meals, but hey, what do you expect for $3 each. I have #11 Nude Love and #20 Get the Look.

Essence Precise Eyeliner Brush


I love this brush. I can’t be without it anymore. While I bought it for its intended purpose (eyeliner) I started using it with my NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder and it’s just the most amazing brush for eyebrows! It’s super thin and easy to get precise marks down! AND it can still pack down powder so it’s not like you’re left with this small faint line. Honestly if you are in the market for a good brush to straighten our your eyebrows, give this a go!

Essence Get Big! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara


The Get Big! Lashes line actually has 4 different mascaras, but I’ve only tried the one. One day I may grab the others just so I can do a review on each and see how they compare! For the price, I do love this mascara. Is it the best I’ve ever used? No. However, I recommend it as a good, cheap mascara.

Essence Kiss Care Love


While I’m not entirely sure this product is sold anymore, it gets an honourable mention for being my favourite lip balm. It went on smoothly, hydrated quickly, and tasted AMAZING. Honestly if I ever see these again I’m grabbing 5 because I’m scraping the bottom of the tube on the one I have. I never want to throw it out. If you see any left on the shelves, get it!

Needless to say I’m going to keep trying out this brand and hopefully they’ll keep surprising me!

What Essence products do you have? Do you enjoy them? Post below!

    1. I agree they’re great! I’ve tried their eyeliners (I have a liquid double sided one and a pencil in white) but I can’t say I’ve tried the blush! I’ll definitely give it a go!
