Review: essence cosmetics spring/summer 2015 #essence #springsummer2015

essence cosmetics, known for their fun, high quality, on-trend cosmetics that are extremely affordable, has come out with their spring/summer 2015 collection. It is the #1 value brand cosmetics in the world, distributed in 70 countries. What I love about essence is that the brand is funky, fun and always on top of the latest cosmetic trends. The products are of great quality and are very affordable. These products are available around the world and are used by women from all over the globe. 

I was sent some of the new products to try out. Below are my thoughts on the new spring/summer 2015 collection…

Metal Glam Eyeshadow $2.99
(above left to right: hello goldie!, sugar mint candy and choco chic)

Metal meets high glam! Metallic and shimmering effects light up the night. These new high coverage shades have been added to the metal glam collection: from neutral naturals to modern mint, bold looks are guaranteed to add twinkle to any eye. Metal Glam Eyeshadow is now available in 8 shades, with these new shades just added: choco chic, are you grey?, hello goldie!, sparkle all night and sugar mint candy.

I tried out hello goldie!, sugar mint candy and choco chic. What I love about these shades is how much metallic sparkle you get with these fun shadows. You really get some great excellent metallic sparkle with these beautiful shadows. And the eye shadows go on like butter, they are very creamy, highly pigmented and long lasting. Here I am wearing sugar mint candy on the lid with choco chic in the crease, lining the bottom lid and hello goldie! under the brow. On my lips I am wearing longlasting lipstick in love me. Notice how shimmery the metallic shadows are. They are gorgeous!!!! I love how beautiful sugar mint candy looks on the lid. You can see hello goldie! under the brow and how slightly shimmery it is, just the faint brilliance of it in the second photo.

3D Eyeshadow $3.49

(above: irresistible midnight date)

This eyeshadow has just been reformulated to be better than ever. With a new texture and formula, this shadow is now creamier and easier to blend. In unique 3D finishes, from satin to metallic to shimmering, you can highlight and contour your eyes fro maximum impact. The new colour-duos range from neutrals to jewel tones with excellent color dispersion and high coverage that leave nothing to be desired. Applied wet, the eyeshadow guarantees even more intense results. Available in a total of 6 shades: irresistible choco cupcake, caramel cream, irresistible first love, fullmoon flash, irresistible vanilla latte and irresistible midnight date.

I tried out irresistible midnight date. I found the shadows hard to use when dry. But when used wet, boy did they look amazing! The colors were so shimmery and had an intensity to them that made my eyes look like so vivid.

Plump No Clump Mascara $4.99
The name says it all with this mascara. You get all of the mascara volume with no clumps! An integrated reservoir, a large elastomer brush lays down mega-volume to the base of lashes and then combs through each lash root-to-tip, plumping them without any clumping. This new mascara is available in black and ultra black. 

I agree. No clumps. Surprisingly so! I am very happy with this mascara and would definitely recommend it to everyone. It gives mega-volume to the lashes and keep them looking beautiful all day long without being too busy. And no clumps means that lashes look fabulous for hours, until you take it off.

longlasting lipstick $2.99

Longlasting love. Fall for the longlasting lipsticks from essence. The longlasting, light and creamy formula provides lips with intense color hour after hour without drying them out. Available in a total of 13 shades, including the new: I am yours, blush my lips, get the look!, love me and oh so matt!.
I tried love me, a pink shade with just a hint of coral to it. It is a beautiful shade that would look good on just about anyone.

XXXL Shine Lipgloss $2.49

(above: fabulous fuchsia and cute lips)

Now available in a total of 12 shades, this lipgloss is a moisturizing, never sticky formula that delivers just the right amount of gloss. Lips become pampered, shiny and irresistible! In two new shades: cute lips and fabulous fuchsia.
I tried out fabulous fuchsia, a gorgeous berry shade. This color looks more subdued in the tube but goes on a beautiful bright berry. It is shiny but not sticky in the least. If you are looking for a more subdued shade, then blot the color and you will definitely have a much lighter shade.
