Essence Spring/Summer 2012 Collection....Review

Essence standards are high quality, on-trend and unique cosmetic products at incredibly low prices. They offer a wide rage of products from eyes, lips, complexion to nails. Beautiful colors with high pigment to obtain the look you desire!

Quattro eyeshadow palette in Denim, Mono eyeshadow in Matte Blue Mission, Long last eye pencil in Cool Down and Coolest Chic, Tint It color changing lip gloss in Turn to Happy, Colour and Go quick dry nail polish in Walk on Air and Be your Sunshine

One stop palette! Ranging from dark to light for a dramatic look. Matte color and shimmer for endless creations. Very long wear!
Retail $2.99

Gel eyeliner in Midnight in Paris. Smooth and creamy gel glides on beautifully. Very long lasting and doesn't smear as the day goes on!

Mono Matte Eyeshadow in Blue Mission. Highly pigmented! Many shades available including shimmers, mattes, metallic and holographic.


Tint It! Colour changing lipgloss in Turn To Happy. Gloss is smooth with only a slight stickiness. Slightly changes color as you wear it from sheer gloss to light pink tint to a medium pink tint. This is medium!
Shade Left - Right Quatrro shades first 4, Coolest Chic eyeliner, Cool Down eyeliner, Gel liner Midnight in Paris, Tint It Turn to Happy (See how sheer at first!)
Same Left - Right in the Sun!

2 coats of Be your Sunshine nail polish. Opaque in 2 coats with a slight shimmer. Goes on evenly and the brush is full which made application a breeze!

 2 coats of Walk on Air nail polish. Opaque in 2 coats. First coat had a jelly like finish which had my mind going crazy with ideas. Beautiful color. I received many compliments on this manicure!

Hi!!!!! It's my full face :-) Wearing eyeshadow as seen above and Tint It! (This is the darkest shade)
I am extremely impressed with all the Essence products. I receive many compliments with this look. I just so happened to wear it Saturday. With a long day of doing manicures and pedicures at school, my make up was still flawless. A fellow student had commented and had asked how I get my make up to stay so long. I let her know the products I had used a assured her I didn't have any other special tricks. 2 thumbs up for Essence. I will be hitting my local store for more products in different colors.
