Brows -Essence -Make Me Brow

on 9/14/2018 12:57:00 PM


This is an GREAT product, especially for the price. It really thickens my brows and stays in place all day. No issues with the darkest shade (I have black hair naturally) and it never looks clumpy. I use this with the NYX Brow Primer and my brows look exactly the same ALL DAY, brushed up and bushy (and i dont have a lot of brow hair). I know a brow primer can sound a little over the top but it has made such a huge difference. Would recommend this on it's own, but would also recommend pairing it with a brow primer as well.

Primer/ Corrector -Essence -Instant Matt Makeup Setting Spray

on 9/12/2018 3:28:00 PM


At first I tried this and thought it broke me out so I put it back down and then recently picked it back up because I found my make up to be going on powdery and wanted it to blend better. I don't think it was this breaking me out because I've used it a few times this week and haven't had a reaction. I took off a lippy because my mister does not work the best even if other reviewers seem to say it's good.

What drew me to this setting spray, is the fact that it does NOT have alcohol denat. in it, which would definitely break me out.

I'll update if I start to notice any irritation.

Mascara -Essence -Volume Stylist 18H Curl & Hold Mascara

on 9/12/2018 2:48:00 PM


I like the mass/formula of this very much and the package is nice. But the wand ruins it! Or it would, if I didn't have come up with the idea to use a separate wand with this, a curved rubber/plastic wand that helps the mascara to do what's it suppose to do: lift and curve the lashes. Why would they put a soft traditional bristle wand (albeit, a curved one) on a mascara like this, when you can get so much better results with a denser wand that puts a little pressure on lashes when brushing it on and combs to prevent clumps!? Personally, I never use an eyelash curler, so I want to be able to rely on my mascara to hold the natural curve of lashes and this waxy, drier formula is great for that. It won't weight the lashes down and gives good volume, but you just can't see it's full potential (if any of it) when used with the original wand!

Mascara -Essence -Lash Princess False Lash Effect

on 9/11/2018 4:55:00 PM


Had I known what a good mascara this was, I wouldn't have bought my many high end ones that ended up in the trash!

This cheap mascara has replaced all of my expensive ones, because it is just that good. It never clumps, it elongates my lashes, lifts them, and it really makes me look like I have false lashes. It doesn't give me tremendous volume, but that's fine with me, as I don't like the clumpy, look-at-me-I'm-wearing-mascara look.

I have nothing bad to say about this product, and I will try the other Lash Princess ones, because they are so affordable.

When will companies learn that the way to get more customers is to stop overpricing their products???

Eye Shadow -Essence -My Must Haves

on 9/10/2018 1:57:00 PM


I have 3 of these: 03 Miss Foxy Roxy (a bronze like color), 21 Kissed by a mermaid (a dark bluish green) and 22 Holo Holic (a beautiful blue with pink/mauve reflections).

The packaging is awful - hard to use, hard to keep together. If you count the money for individual colors and the plastic palette, you end up with quite expensive makeup of poor quality.

They don't last at all. They break apart and look awful after a couple of hours.Very disappointing, as I really love the colors (and they do look lovely when freshly applied).

Save your money! Wet n' wild and Miss Sporty are cheaper and a lot better. Lots of other options are more expensive a lot better. These just make no sense at all.
