One of my favorite brands from the more affordable end of the spectrum is absolutely, without a doubt Essence Beauty. I have some items from their Summer 2014 collection that I am so excited to share with you. I don’t have everything, but I am definitely looking into picking up the remainder of the line.
I am a mascara addict so the Essence Get BIG Lashes mascara is a must. I have had several of their mascaras and I am in love with them all. This mascara is just $3.99 and I love it. I have an upcoming Face Of The Day that you will see it in. I will refresh this post with the link as soon as it goes live.
The Sun Club All-In-One Bronzing Highlighter in 02-Sun Glow is gorgeous. It is a bronzer and a highlighter in one product. The all-in-one bronzing highlighter creates either gorgeous shimmer effects or a subtly tanned finish on your face and neckline – depending on the look you’re going for. And it can even be used as eyeshadow! Reminds me of a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick and it is only $4.49
The Look At Me! Lipstick in Miss Peach is a gorgeous coral with gold shimmer. It is $2.99 and is absolutely a staple for summer. It has a smooth texture and extra glossy shine. The modern and personalized color-matched packaging makes finding your favorite shade as easy as 1-2-3!
The Stay No Matter What Eyepencil and Shadow in Whipped White Frosting is absolutely amazing. I have been using it as an inner corner highlight since it joined my collection. The soft, waterproof and extremely long-lasting texture lasts up to 16 hours and can be used as an eyeliner pencil and as an eyeshadow. The jumbo eye pencil & shadow is accurate, easy to apply and won’t smudge. Available in six stays no matter what colors. It is only $2.99!
The Eyeliner Pen is really something fabulous. It is $2.99 and is so perfectly pigmented. This eyeliner pen has a specialized Japanese felt tip to ensure an absolutely precise line. Smudge-proof and extra long lasting.Here are all the swatches side by side. From left to right: The first swipe is the bronzing highlighter swirled together and the rest of the swipes are the shades swatched separately. Next is the lipstick; even though there are shimmers visible in the tube they are very subtle on the lip. The eye pencil is so gorgeous and pigmented and very long lasting. The eyeliner pen is amazingly pigmented. One of the blackest blacks I have ever seen.
The Essence Summer 2014 collection is one of the most exciting releases of the season in my opinion. Their shades are exciting, the pricing is super affordable. Who could ask for more? You can find them at your local Ulta and other various places on the web, including their website!
