Review: NEW! 2014 Autumn/Winter Offerings from essence Cosmetics #essence #cosmetics #makeup

(product photos courtesy of http://essence-cosmetics.tumblr.com/)

Essence Cosmetics is one of my favorite brands. They have such a great variety with excellent quality at an incredible price point. This brand is known all over the world. When I was in Greece this summer I even saw a huge essence display at Hondos Center in Athens! Essence has an Allure Best of Beauty 2014 Winner with their Gel Waterproof Eyeliner! I was lucky enough to try out some of their new items for this year and I am happy to report that the quality is still as great as ever and this brand has some great products that you need to check out! Read on to see my thoughts…


all about… eyeshadow palettes $4.99 each.

These eye shadow palettes are guaranteed to give you beautiful eyes. There are four new offerings, I tried three of them. Each palette contains six trendy colors. The eye shadows have an extremely smooth texture. They come in shimmering, matt and metallic effects and are very pigmented with little to no fallout. The price is perfect to mix and match for endless looks. My personal favorite is the nude palette, which gives a great natural eye.

get BIG! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara $3.99

essence get big lashes volume curl mascara
Get mega curly voluminous lashes with this mascara, guaranteed! The curved fiber brush offers maximum volume, gorgeous curl and thickens lashes while the black texture ensures an intense look. I have never had lashes like this before. This mascara gives the most volume of any I have ever tried. It makes my lashes so voluminous and curly that it looks like I am wearing false lashes. The dark black color makes them look insanely intense too. I’ve had people comment that it looks like I am wearing false lashes when I wear this mascara! This is really one of the best if not the best mascaras I have ever used. And the price is great too. Also, it does not dry out quickly like many mascaras. It does not smudge, it lasts all day long and it does not clump too. How perfect is that? Perfect! I think that this could be my Holy Grail mascara!!!!

essence eyeliner pen waterproof black
This is my new favorite felt tip liquid eyeliner. It goes on quite easily and accurately to achieve the perfect winged look. It is smudge proof and waterproof. I like that it comes in a deep black color. It applies like a dream and is just about perfect. What more can you say?

gel eye pencil waterproof_blue lagoon $2.99 Allure Best of Beauty 2014 Winner!

This is a great gel pencil eyeliner that happens to also be waterproof. It is the latest trend from Asia, a gel pencil in a pen-shape. Instead of in a tub, the soft, waterproof and long-lasting texture of the gel eye pencil comes in a retractable pen. Velvety and highly-pigmented, these pens are intense. This gel eyeliner happens to also be a 2014 Allure Best of Beauty Winner! I love how it glides on and stays all day without any smudging and running.

essence longlasting lipstick nude loveessence longlasting lipstick_coral calling
These lipsticks give lips long-lasting, intense color for several hours without drying them out. They come in 10 shades, from brights to neutrals, you will definitely find a color for you. The ring around the rim of the cap shows you what color is inside. I tried out two shades, Nude Love and Coral Calling. Let me say this, they are both amazing colors. I love nude lipsticks, so it was very easy for me to fall in love with this color. Brights are also fun to wear and I love Coral Calling too. These wore almost all day long without any problems fading or coming off while eating non-oily foods.

This is my favorite lipgloss. It’s not sticky and this lipgloss is extremely shiny, this gloss is available in bright shades as well as subtle ones. It goes on smoothly and lasts for a very long time. Now available in two new shades: metal shine and frosted pink. I tried metal shine and it is gorgeous! This lipgloss leaves lips looking irresistible!
