Every other season essence comes out with their collection for that following spring/summer or fall/winter. And I have been lucky enough to get to review the collections for the past few years. This year is not exception. I have the spring/summer 2017 collection for you to see and experience.


All about… beautiful eyes! NEW Gorgeous eyeshadow palettes with eight complementing, buildable colors and multiple finishes; satin, matte and metallic effects, now in Toffee shades. Beautiful shades of toffee brown, golden and pink, all with a splash of gray thrown in for good measure. Gives eyes a good workout.

Eyes ON! The “Shape & Shadows“ palette ensures a combination of trendy eye make-up and wow-brows. The eye contouring palette brings the contouring trend to the eyes and offers eyeshadow, eyebrow powder, highlighter as well as brow wax, which can be used as a basis for eyebrow powder or for keeping the desired shape in place. The palette also contains an applicator for applying powder or combing the brows. It really is an all in one kit that does everything. Look below to see my results:

Shine bright! The “The Glow Must Go On” palette ensures a radiant complexion for all! three different bronzers in warm shades can be used individually or in combination to create a fresh glow, while the two eyeshadows offer eye make-up styles with a glam factor. The highlighter emphasizes the best facial features and can easily be applied and blended with the mini-brush – just like the bronzer. Here is a look I did with this palette:

Prime time! This new 2-in1 set ensures flawless eyes every time. Amazing on its own, it can also be used as a base to make your favorite eyeshadow last longer. It comes in two shades: nude rosé and nude beige. Both work perfectly to allow shadow and liner to last longer. Used in every photo.

The pro secret that belongs in your makeup bag! This concealer palette offers five different colors in a creamy powdery texture for a variety of combinations:

Pink: brightens tired skin
Yellow: reduces dark circles under the eyes
Green: neutralizes redness
Beige: covers imperfections in 2 shade
Used in every photo.  Especially the yellow and pink.

Face perfection in one step! This gentle, silky, and matte color correcting powder evens out skin tone and absorbs any excess oil in one easy swipe. Blended together, the pink refreshes a tired complexion, green neutralizes redness, and beige mattifies and blends to create a naturally even skin tone. Used in every photo. 


Blush addicted! This new, silky-soft, highly pigmented powder blush instantly provides your cheeks with glowing color and a light pearl effect. It comes in Satin Coral and Satin Love. Quite pretty on. 



Extra volume, extra curl. The curl fiber brush ensures maximum volume and curved lashes with a false lash look. Worn in photo #3. 


Easy peasy! Shape and highlight your eyes with the two ends of this super versatile eye pencil. Can be used as a liner, eyeshadow or highlighter. I used it more as a liner and highlighter pencil. It can be used this way too.

The extremely fine brush applicator is ideal for creating precise lines as well as bold designs! Deep black, long-lasting, waterproof – for wow-eyes! This is one of my favorite liners. Used in photos #2 & #3. 









These new matte lipsticks easily glide over the lips with gorgeous, high impact color. The creamy texture gives you a long lasting matt finish without drying out the lips. I'm wearing the first one in the second photo. 



The next superstar! The slightly curved fiber brush provides breathtaking volume, reaching each individual lash to ensure an eye-opening effect. What a great mascara. 


The specially shaped asymmetric brush with shorter and longer fibers covers each individual lash to create a wide-eye, doll like effect with dramatic XXXL volume. This is even better than the original. And that one is pretty good. So this one kicks ass. I'm wearing this mascara in photo #2, with my false lashes.



The ball-shaped felt tip of this new eyeliner pen makes it super easy to create lines or dots for special, long-lasting eyeliner styles. Pro Tip:  Create 3-5 dots along your lash line.  Draw a line between the dots to connect.  Voila! The perfect even line. Isn't that a great tip? I thought it was. I really like this liner, it makes lining eyes so easy. 

So, those are the new essence spring and summer products I tried. The price point is amazing and I have to say the quality cannot be beat. This line has some of the best stuff on the market and can be compared to high end lines.
