Essence is a German based beauty brand that dabbles in everything from skincare to make up. Available in over 60 countries worldwide, this is a high quality brand that is as cheap as chips and I am pleased to say does not test on animals. Other brands, take note - It can be done. In late September last year, Essence finally launched in the UK. These are available in only 6 Wilkinson's stores across England: Portsmouth, Wood Green, Mansfield, Sunderland, Castleford & South end on sea.
I decided to pop up to Wood Green and see them for myself. I got a bit carried away I must say! In particular these were the products that stood out the most for me:
3D Duo Eye shadows | £3.99 ... The duo pots are snazzy little numbers. Their swirling form along with the colour pay off really hit the spot. Each of the 3D Duo's contain a light and dark shade that work to create a look that plays with shadows and light across the eyes. The lighter shade in each pot sits nicely in the inner corner of the eye and just underneath the brow bone. Its a great highlight and blends very easily. The darker shade is one for the lid. If you pack this on even more in the crease, you can easily create a shadow without having to add another colour. They are jazzy and go on so smoothly - The price is completely justified.
TRY... 08 'Vanilla Latte', Peach toned golds & iridescent sparkles OR 04 'Caramel Cream', rich bronze & champagne white.
Quattro Eye shadows | £3.99 ... If you like a mix of shimmers and mattes, this little palette is your girl. It contains a selection of complimentary colours, one matte & three shimmers. These are completely addictive and the palettes range from neutral colours all the way to brights. There is a little something for everyone. They aren't patchy, they go on very nicely. And I love how many looks you can create from a selection of just four shadows. They make each of these quads very flexible in colour and choice. Its a freaking bargain.
TRY... 05 'To die for', a strong neutrals quad with rich colours.
