Lip Liners - essence - Soft Contouring Lip Liner

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/05/2013

I have two of these lip liners, one in 04 honey bun and the other in 05 soft berry.
Pros:
1. Doesn't let lipstick bleed out
2. Very soft, easy to apply
Cons:
1. Doesn't help lipstick last longer on the lips
2. After setting, it starts to feel drying

All in all, I think these lip liners are worth checking out, because of their price. They are …

Lip Treatments - Oriflame - Tender Care -protecting balm

Dec/30/2012

I really can't say enough good things about this product. It's so moisturizing, so nourishing and so comfortable on the lips. I know you can use it for all dry parts on your body, but I use it only on my lips. I've tried every single one of the flavors that oriflame has released for this balm and by far I must say that the caramel one and the vanilla one are my favorites. Both are …Read more

Brows - essence - Eyebrow Designer Pencil

Oct/28/2012

I love how versatile this pencil is. The color really is different when you apply it lightly and when use a heavier hand. I like that, because when I do a very natural makeup I also like my brows to look more natural and light, but when I do a more intense eye look, I feel like my eyebrows just disappear if they are very light. I'm glad that in these cases I don't have to look for …Read more

Polishes - essence - Colour & Go 126 date in the moonlight

Oct/28/2012

I don't really have anything bad to say about this polish. The staying power was great (7 days with no chipping, using the essence quick dry top coat), the color was beautiful and it did really dry fast (I like to apply top coat when the color polish is already dry). The only down side I see is that the color was different from how it looked in the bottle. It turned out a lot darker, not so …Read more

Lipstick - essence - Lipstick in Look at me

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/28/2012

I must agree with the previous reviewer that this lipstick would probably look a lot better on darker skin tones. On a ghost-like pale girl like me it looks like I ate come chocolate cupcakes and didn't entirely wipe my mouth clean. I'm also not a fan of the sweet scent the lipstick has, but on the bright side, I can't feel it anymore after I'm done applying it. As the …Read more

My favorite thing about this liner is its price. Honestly if it were more expensive I would probably not be loured into buying it, but can you really say no to trying something that's under a dollar?
Anyway, I own the color "All I want". I bought it because it was on clearance for around 50 cents. At first I didn't know what to do with it, because the color is a bit odd …

Eye Shadow - essence - Stay All Day Stars and Stories

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2012

I've heard from many people that the "stay all day" eye shadow line from essence is the same as are the maybelline color tattoo eye shadows. If you've heard the same thing, don't believe it, because the "stay all day" doesn't even stand a chance of being nearly as good as the color tattoos. I can't say that all of the colors are horrible, because I …Read more

After trying the individual shadows, I really had my hopes up that the palette would have shadows in it that are the same amazing quality and pigmentation. Sadly this palette kind of let me down. It contains 8 colors, 4 mattes and 4 shimmery shades. I'm overall pleased with the shimmery shades, for example the white one is one of my favorite highlights, but the mattes- awful. The blue-green …Read more

Eye Shadow - Unlisted Brand - Flormar- quartet eye shadow

One word- AMAZING!
Not only are the colors stunning, they are also very pigmented! I have the quad in 401, it contains neutral shades, all that you would ever want for a casual day time look. If you are a matte shade lover, these are not for you tough. The shadows have quite a lot of shimmer in them, but not to the point that you would look like a disco ball. No, no, girl, no chunky glitter …

Blush - essence - Silky Touch Blush (All Shades) [DISCONTINUED]

Sep/14/2012

Finally! An amazingly pigmented blush can be found at the drugstore! The range of low priced makeup is very narrow where I live so I was incredibly happy to see essence products appear on the shelves, because I had heard many good things about the brand.
I got the color babydoll which in the packaging looks like a quite dark pink blush, but the good news is that it can totally be sheered out …
