Mascara -Essence -Lash Princess Sculpted Volume

on 11/19/2017 3:49:00 PM


I agree with the other reviewers, not bad at all! This mascara gives good volume and is easy to use and remove. It also lasts long and I only need one or two layers. Definitely one of my favorites if I want a more dramatic look. For day-to-day use, I still prefer my old Max Factor mascara; the Lash Princess looks a little less natural (slight spider effect).

Top/Base Coats -Essence - The Gel nail polish base coat

on 11/19/2017 2:05:00 PM


Great base coat for a great price!
The full system of base+color+top coat didn't work for me (chipped really quickly), but luckily I gave the base coat another try. It works perfectly for all my gel-like manicures and helps them last a full week at least without my nails getting weak or chipping.
I've compared the same nail polishes over a more expensive base coat (Essie first base), and it performed much worse. The nail polish chipped quicker and also some of my nails started braking.
I took one lipstick off for packaging because in the bottle I bought for my mom, the brush often stays inside the polish while the cap gets off, but it's still manageable.

Highlighters -Essence -Pure Nude Highlighter

on 11/17/2017 12:40:00 PM


One of the best highlighters on the market IMHO. I love that it is subtle and more natural looking on the skin than many products out there. For what I want in a highlighter, the quality and price cannot be beat! Highly recommend.

Lip Liners -Essence -In The Nude #11

on 11/17/2017 12:31:00 AM

This is my go to MLBB day lip product. It doesn’t last all that long, but at the price point and considering the way it looks on, I really don’t mind. I’m happy to keep applying it all day!
It applies easily and blends seamlessly into my natural lip colour, allowing me to overline my lips a little to give them a plumper look. I don’t use it all over. Think of it like a brow pencil for your lips. Defining and filling in the gaps.

Mascara -Essence -Lash Princess False Lash Effect

on 11/16/2017 4:43:00 AM


So close to being great. This mascara's formula is just a tad too wet and the application is a tiny bit clumpy. And after day-long wear, I do see some smudging under my eyes. Okay, so it's not that great. But it provides good length, decent volume, nice black color. For the price (five bucks), it really isn't that bad. But it's not as good as Jordana Best Lash or L'oreal Lash Paradise. If you're shopping for a drugstore mascara, I'd recommend either one of those over this one.

I wouldn't buy it again.
