Eye Primer -essence -I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base


I've never used eye primer in the past, but I noticed my Modern Renaissance palette tends to fade and crease really easily. This does a good enough job to stop creasing, but I find it is not good with fading. This does nothing for my Dior shadows that fade in like an hour. This has a peachy beige tint to it that looks pretty close to skin color on me (NW15) and covers all my lid pigmentation and a little goes a really really long way.

It's cheap, will last a long time, and is good if you only need a little bit of crease protection but can't handle heavy duty oily lids or prevent fading. I will probably try the Milani primer once I finish this.

Mascara -essence -Lash Princess False Lash Effect

on 10/16/2018 3:24:00 PM


I love the way this looks on my lashes. It is very black and thickening on me. However, it smudges like crazy, to the point I cannot wear it without tubing mascara over it. I have long lashes, so it smudges where my top lashes hit my brow bone. I haven’t even attempted on bottom lashes! If you have shorter lashes, it might work better with less smudging.

Foundations -essence -Fresh and Fit Awake Make up

on 10/15/2018 3:32:00 PM


Let's get the cons out of the way: I have 2 of the 4 shades (the lightest and darkest). 4 SHADES. It's not even worth complaining about a lack of colour diversity in this range because the range is just so small that no one is really being accommodated unless they happen to have the shades and undertones of the whopping 4 offerings. And of the 2 bottles I have, the pump stopped working immediately on both of them. And this foundation needs a pump due to its consistency. So I have to unscrew the top and apply the product to the back of my hand with the stick inside, and once they get emptier, there's going to be a lot of product I won't be able to access. Luckily it's only $8 CAD (pricey for an Essence product!)

But the darkest shade matched my summer skin perfectly and the finish is SO BEAUTIFUL. This is a healthy, light-reflecting glow without shimmer. It's my skin, airbrushed. I feel like I'm wearing a very high end foundation. It's not drying and it's not oily. My skin gets dry in the winter and I only started using this late last winter so I'll have to see how my skin does with it now that it's getting cold again. I'm going to get one of the middle shades to transition me back to my pale winter self and hopefully some mixing will give me a match, as the lightest shade is a tad too light.

At this price, it's worth trying if you can get a shade to match. The scent is nice and it feels great. Lasts nicely all day long, too. Essence - please increase your shade range and improve the pump. Otherwise, great work.

Eyeliner -essence -Gel Waterproof Eye Pencil 05 Gunmetal

on 10/13/2018 8:26:00 PM

overall: 10/10

This is a fantastic liner. It's retractable so no sharpening is needed, it's easy to apply, and best of all it stays ALL DAY in my lower lash line without smudging. I bought this at DM and I think it was about 2 euros. I cannot find these liners in Australia which is very disappointing because I would have loved to buy more colours. I love the smoky look this gives without being black.
