The best of Essence Cosmetics

I’m a huge advocate for drugstore makeup. I just can’t bring myself to spend loads of money on a single item when I could get ten items from the drugstore for the same price. Enter: Essence cosmetics!

This brand is so adorable, I’m obsessed! The packaging is so fun and girly! And the pricing is amazing. Seriously, how can such a quality product be so affordable?!

Though I think this might throw some people off. Does cheap pricing mean cheap quality? Absolutely not! I will admit, that I was skeptical at first. But I’m so glad I took the plunge! Once you experience brads like essence cosmetics and elf cosmetics you begin to wonder how companies can charge what they do when you can get the exact same quality at a fraction of the price!

So without further ado, here are my favorite products from the ever amazing essence cosmetics!

1. Fresh & Fit awake makeup 

Foundation was the one thing I was a little hesitant to try from this brand. I’m not too sure why, and I honestly wasn’t expecting much. But boy oh boy was I blown away.

Not only is this foundation full coverage but it gives off such a healthy glow to my skin AND it smells amazing. My only issue is that even the lightest shade is a tad too dark for me. (But it’ll be perfect for the summertime!)

2. Matt Matt Matt long-lasting lipgloss

The word “lipgloss” kind of thew me off but this little guy is really more of a lipstick. The pigment is wonderful, the smell is great, (I’m sensing a theme here) and it’s not drying as you would expect from a matte product. But is in fact, really moisturizing!

3. All about ________ eye shadow pallets

I own the all about bronze and all about roses pallets, though there are other variations. These are such cute, compacted and very pigmented eye shadows.

4. I <3 stage eye shadow base 

There isn’t a whole lot you can say about an eye shadow base but it gets the job done. You can see below.

What a gem this mascara is. It does a superb job at separating the lashes and really holding the volume all day.

6. Make me brow eyebrow gel mascara

It’s like a mini mascara for your eyebrows! How cute?! I like my brows done but not too dramatic. I already have quite bushy brows and this product does a great job of holding them in place, filling them in and making them look natural all day!

7. Superfine eyeliner pen 

This eyeliner is so sharp! I couldn’t believe the pigment. I’ve had it for months and it still looks brand new. And the tip comes to such a tiny point that helps to get such a precise wing.

8. Out of space stories nail polish 

Essence has such a great nail polish line and these new space stories are phenomenal! The perfect chromatic nails, yes, please!

9. Satin touch blush 

um yes, satin touch is the perfect way to describe this blush. This is such a soft, creamy blush. I don’t even know how to describe it but if you get the chance to swatch one of these babies you’ll know exactly what I mean. It glides onto the skin perfectly and blends so well to give a naturally flushed look.

10. Strobing highlighter stick 

oh you know I had to add a highlighter to this list. This is the first “stick” highlighter I’ve ever tried and it’s wonderful. Its pigmented without being too dramatic so it’s a perfect everyday kind of highlighter.
