Eye Shadow - essence - My Must Haves

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/10/2018

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 …

Blush - essence - Matt Touch Blush

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2018

I have 30 Rose Me Up!

it looks almost like a powder in the pan, but it IS a blush, and a beautiful one. it's great for my very light skin tone, because most blushes make me look like a clown no matter how hard I try to only pick up a bit of color. this one looks just right.

I can build it up in the summer, when I go a bit darker - but for most of the year, it's …

Eyeliner - essence - Long Lasting Eye Pencil

I have the black one.
I like it a lot. It's very black, stays put all day, glides smoothly, no need to sharpen it. Seems to last a long time since I forgot when I bought it.

Great product.

Mascara - essence - Volume Stylist 18HR Curl & Hold Mascara

2.0

Apr/06/2018

this gives a quite dramatic look, BUT
it smears and smudges horribly, bits of it fall around the face at random times so you simply cannot keep your face clear from it.
and to make things eve worse, you cannot take it off.
waterproof makeup remover is helpless with it. I hate rubbing my eyes for half an hour and STILL wake up looking like a panda.

it's a shame, I …

Mascara - essence - Get BIG! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/06/2018

I think this is the one makeup product that I have ever re-purchased. it's a perfect combination of great result, ease of application, staying power, ease of removal.

when I was researching this, lots of people talked about being very wet, and drying slowly. I LOVE this, as it gives me enough time to brush all of the lashes, coat them just the way I like it, put a second coat if …

Palettes - essence - Glow for it

very soft, velvety feeling.
the highlighter is really nice. lasts over 10 hours.
the blush is nice and natural if you're very fair, like me. otherwise, probably a nice highlighter. not sure how much this one lasts cos I mix it up with other blushes. it's a bit invisible in electric light. outside, looks nice and fresh.

the eye shadows don't last at all. and …

Mar/09/2018

very, very bad. incredibly bad, considering the reviews. who are you people?

way too thick, makes wrinkles look huuuge right away. there is NO hydrating. that's a big lie. if anything, it dries the skin the moment it touches it.

it does NOT correct anything. it can't even hide. and my under eye isn't even that dark.
there is no radiance. ok, I do have …

Palettes - essence - Light Up Your Face Luminizer Palette

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2017

This is a palette with 3 powders:

1 - natural on me. I think it has a very soft lighting effect, almost unnoticeable. not sure how to use this one.

2 - a highlighter. white with a pinkish tint (I can't tell it's pink on my face). does a good job. it is glittery.

3 - this is my favorite. this is like a very soft bronzer, and on my skin tone is the …

Mascara - RIMMEL - Reloaded

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2017

I bought this one because I really liked the other Scandal-eyes Masacaras Rimmel have, but this one claims to be "Easy to remove with warm water". and I really-really hoped it was true.

Well, it's not. It simply broke out into a million plastic-like, black bits and were impossible to clear off, and basically nothing could remove it completely. Every morning I had to try …

Concealers - Catrice - Light Reflecting Concealer

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/04/2017

I don't understand the great reviews here. Maybe they changed the formula since 2014?

My experience with this is terrible. It's way too thick for the under-eye area, too drying. I tried putting it right after a heavy moisturizer, and it's still too dry, making lines more visible and deeper. it looks very unnatural and heavy.

yes, it makes skin lighter and …
