ESSENCE COSMETICS: SMALL HAUL (REVIEW & SWATCHES)

JUNE FAVES + 028

Hi beauties!

So in the past I had only picked out a couple Essence lip liners & really liked them but since they only carry them at only 1 certain drugstore in Canada (Shoppers Drug Mart) I kind of forgot about this brand because I went there less frequently. The past few days I had been seeing some more posts about this brand Essence and of course my curiosity got the best of me and I went to track them down at my Drug Store. The first thing I saw were the Limited Edition “Cookies and Cream” line by them. I was automatically drawn to the cute packaging and soft & pretty colors. I picked up a Blush and an Eye Shadow from that collection. (I wish I would have got more because now I don’t see the collection anymore at my Drug Store!!)  Then I picked out three eye shadows from their permanent collection which looked beautiful and metallic!

Let me add that these products are beyond cheap – and the quality is surprisingly amazing for the price you’re paying!! (Each item was under $3.00)

❤ Let me start with the Cookies & Cream collection ❤

This is one of the Baked Eyeshadow’s in “Macaron, C’est Bon!”

BLUSH 2

It is a gorgeous shimmery pink shade.

This is the Baked Blush in “Cakepop, That’s Top!”

BLUSH 1

This is my FAVORITE item by far – I can’t tell you how gorgeous this looks on the cheeks – it is a perfect coral shade for the Summer & it is soo smooth and buttery I still cannot believe that an item this cheap can be so good. It has a *subtle* sheen to it which makes you truly look like you’re glowing from within. I really wish I had a backup of this blush.. I went back to my drugstore to see if there were any more and they were no where to be found! *sobs*

Here are the swatches of the baked eyeshadow and blush WITHOUT primer ❤

 I am super impressed with these baked items from the Cookies & Cream line. So pigmented and so buttery and smooth. I am still amazed at the quality!! If you happen to find these items definitely pick them up – it’s so worth it.

Now we have the three eye shadows that I believe are permanent. So don’t fret! I was originally drawn at how metallic and sparkly they looked in the pan – which is why I had to have them!

EYE 3

EYE 1

EYE 2

Adorable names huh? Here are the swatches of each shade WITHOUT any primer.

JUNE FAVES + 023

As you can see, these are beautifully pigmented as well! The least pigmented would be Peach Beach, but it’s definitely workable and for I believe what was CAD $1.50 these are worth every penny. I am now on the prowl for more Essence produtcs and am definitely keeping my eye open for any new collections. I am beyond impressed with this line and the prices are truly amazing! I definitely know there will be a lot more Essence products in the future to review! Hope you liked this post beauties ❤ xoxo
