I love this range! There are 10 shades, I managed to purchase 5 of them :) Truth to be told, so far I only tried Hip Hop, which is a popping red with orange undertones. I love this color, especially now that summer has arrived :) Great packaging, great brush. I never use a base coat, or a top coat, I only put the nail polish on in two coats, that's it. This ist the 4th day, that this polish doesn't chip off at all, there's not even a slightest sign of fading, it really lasts, though I was doing a lot of cleaning, dishwashing, etc. And a cute extra, which I really like, is that the polishes are named after music genres, and the names really reflect the given color (e.g. New Romantic is nice pastel pink with a teeny-tiny shimmer, Jazz Funk is a fuchsia, etc.) Soon I'll try all shades that I purchased, if my opinion changes, I'll come back :)
I'm going through my 3rd bottle of this, it's the perfect light-pink polish, great for everyday. Your nails will look pampered and polished, as if you just left the salon. I love all the Essence Colour&Go polishes, they're really cheap, but still great quality. The brush is perfect, and they usually last one week on my nails. And the colour range is insane! Also among my favorites: English Rose (dark, brownish pink), Fame Fatal (bright red), Do You Speak Love? (dark red) and I'm So Very (rusty dark orange) and of course the nude ones (a tip: Hazelnut Cream Pie)! And a huge bonus I just discovered on their website: they don't test on animals! *update: I just fell in love with the color called "Redvolution", it's a fantastic, bright, orange-y red, love it! (and no, Essence doesn't pay me to write these posts :) )
I saw one of my colleagues using this and when I asked her about it, she was raving about it, so I had to purchase this concealer. I also fell in love with the packaging, it's like a jewelry in my make-up bag :) No matter how much sleep I get (or don't get), I have dark circles under my eyes and I was looking for something to hide those in a natural way. The YSL Touche Eclat is out of reach for me, but this does the job perfectly, the perfect combo of hiding and highlighting! I love that before you put it on, it's liquid, but as you blend it, it becomes powdery and blends perfectly. I look fresh and well-rested (even when I'm not :) )
I have lots of different blushes from different labels but this is one of my favorites. This blush has a beautiful brownish-pinkish color (the name "Sienne" describes it perfectly) with just a tad of shimmering. Not too much, just enough to give you a healthy glow. The color fits my olive skin and dark brown eyes perfectly. Only one tiny problem other reviewers also noticed: the brush that comes with the blush is totally useless, but other than that, get out there and buy this blush! :)
I purchased this scent this spring but I didn't wear it the whole summer because for me, this is a fall-winter scent, so now's the time to wear it. It's warm, clean, sophisticated and very feminine. I couldn't imagine this scent on someone younger than 27-28, no offense. It does have a luxurious vibe, but in a good way. Whenever I wear this, it even affects the way I dress, I chose feminine and more elegant outfits for this perfume. It is pricey but it's an investment just like a Burberry trenchcoat :)
it's a great everyday blush, perfect color and so easy to apply!definitely a do!

This is a great quad for an everyday make-up, perfect colors (I have dark brown eyes), you can use 1 or 2 colors but you can also create a beautiful make up using all 4 shades!
This is my go to fragrance for this winter, it's a really warm and feminine scent, I love it! it's pricey though but it lasts forever!

Great quality for a great price, it leaves my hair supersoft and smelling yummie!
This is one of the best mascaras I've ever used! For this price, it's great, non-sticky, and it doesn't smear. Also perfect for a smokey eye!
Great color, but it's a wee bit too strong!

I started using shade number 54 about 3 months ago and I'm very satisfied with this foundation. It gives a medium coverage, blends well and as far as I read the reviews, all skin colors find a match. it's also very light, I don't feel as I have a mask on as I often do wearing foundations. the price is OK. I think it's perfect for normal skin that doesn't break out and only has a few imperfections. for a skin with more problems, you'll need a foundation with more coverage.

this eyeliner is way tooo soft for me, I just can't put it on precisely, I always end up trying to put it on then removing it, then trying again and removing it again...
Oh, my favorite everyday eyeliner, I just love Saturn grey. Its' soft but not too soft, you can do your eyes really quickly in the morning when you're running late :) the price is great, espacially when it's on sale, which happens pretty often. it brings great attention to your eyes without ever getting racoon eyes :)
