I LOVE Essence make-up, it’s so budget friendly and the products are actually good for the price you pay! As budget, drugstore brands go, it’s one of my favourites. I picked up some stuff from their new collection ‘Me & My Umbrella’ today, and thought I’d give you all a closer look!
I picked up two of the nail polishes, one in a grey-ish shade, and the other in a lovely berry shade. I can add this to my collection of nail polishes!
‘Take Me To The Clouds’ is the grey shade (it looks a bit darker in the pictures)
‘Crazy Autumn Love’ is the berry shade…I LOVE the names on these products, they’re so cute!
There are two matte eyeshadows..look how adorable the packaging is!
‘Be Your Own Rainbow’ is the lighter shade, it’s almost white and it would be great as an all over base.
‘Take Me To The Clouds’ is a grey shade, I think it would be nice smoked out at the edge of the eye. The pigment isn’t great on either of these but they’re definitely buildable.
There’s also a blusher in the collection called ‘You Can Stand Under My Umbrella’ – seriously love the names!
How adorable is that?! The colour is also gorgeous too, very subtle..although I almost dont want to use it because it’s so cute!
There are two lipsticks too, a dark aubergine shade and a mauve shade (both colours are darker than they appear in the photos). They’re matte lipsticks, and the colours look fab!
Then we have the mini contour set! This has a highlighter and contouring crayon. The collection also has a contour brush (which I didn’t buy) and it looks good!
And last, I got the eyebrow thickener. I’ve never used one of these and I’m not entirely sure what it does but I’m looking forward to trying it!
And that’s that! I’ll let you know what I think of everything when I get a chance to try them!
