Hello frozen fairies!
Today is the first day of December! Like, WHERE DID ALL THE YEAR OF 2014 GO!?!?!? Isn’t it crazy to think that one year just passes by like THIS *snaps fingers*. Sooner or later we’ll all be travelling at the speed of light! Anyway, this December, I’ll be sharing some of my holiday festive season favourites, and this bunch of goodies from Essence Cosmetics is one of them!
If you haven’t heard of Essence Cosmetics, they are a cosmetic brand originated in Europe, but has expanded to Canada lately. Their makeup products are top quality, fun, flirty, and best of all, NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL! For the price of one high-end blush you can probably buy 10 Essence blushes. #notkidding. Thank you Faulhaber Communications for this Essence goodie bag!
Essence All about Sunrise and All about Nude Eyeshadow Palettes
Single eyeshadows in Black Goddess, Disco Diva, My Baby Blue, and Chill Out
Shimmer metal glam eyeshadows in coffee to glow, chocolate jewelry, and golden up!
These are one of my favorites! Gel liner in a pencil, they are waterproof and smudgeproof, and EASY TO APPLY!
Swatches of the Gel liners. Look at the teal! That will look gorgeous as an upper or lower liner!
Can you believe these lipsticks retail under $7 each?
Swatches for the lip liner – also one of my favorites! Super creamy, long lasting, and less than $3!!!
Ultrashine Lipgloss that’s somehow super shiny and nonsticky. “true love” and “big night out”
Swatches for True Love and Big Night Out! The miniscule shimmer particles will really oomph up your lips! (excuse the arm hairs)
Effect Nail Polishes is perfect on its own or as a topcoat for that extra bling
I save my favorite for last. Essence polishes are very comparable to the consistency of Opi polishes and the durability of Essie, but costs under $3 each! Super, SUPER recommend!
Canadian residents, you’re in luck! If you haven’t already noticed, Essence cosmetics is exclusively only found in Shoppers Drug Marts and Pharmaprix all across Canada, and they have tons more fun and high quality makeup items than what I’ve listed. To me, one of the most important factors in expressing yourself through makeup is TO HAVE FUN. And it’s not a ton of fun if that costs about $50 per eyeshadow. Essence cosmetics really embodies what I believe to be daring, fun makeup, great for beginners or those on a budget, as most of their items cost under $8! You don’t need to break the bank to look beautiful!
Have you tried any Essence makeup products?
