Over the past couple of months, I've been testing out some make up and nail products from Essence and I have finally gathered all my thoughts on them and so I thought it was time I did a review. Essence is a newish brand to me and I would never have thought to buy product from them in the past but now that I've tried some products from them, I definitely think I'll be going to a Essence counter to invest some more.
*Essence Sun Club 2in1 Bronzing Powder in 20 sunset - This was the first item I tried and I wasn't disappointed. This is such a brilliant product and probably the best bronzing powder I have found to date. The blush colour is nice but I mainly love the actual bronzing powder as it is so natural and not at all orange. This powder is perfect for all year round, with a pale complexion or a tanned complexion. This product has good pigmentation and is the perfect 2in1 compact and I will definitely be repurchasing this. This product is also a bargain at only £3.50.
*Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara - Now I love trying new mascaras and I'm not particularly fussy as to how it makes my lashes look, as long as my lashes look lengthened. My eyelashes are naturally very long and sometimes I get asked if I'm wearing false eyelashes when I have mascara on so I thought this mascara would put it to the test. This mascara is very nice, I like the formula and it gives my lashes a good amount of length. If I had shorter lashes, I think I would be able to tell more of a difference to if it gives a false lash effect but as my lashes are naturally long, it didn't make a huge difference. Although I would happily wear this mascara again and again. The only problem I found with this mascara is, when applied to my bottom lashes, it left fall down under my eyes after a while and that is not a good look but other than that, I was very impressed with this mascara and for £3.30, it's a total bargain.
*Essence Longlasting Lipstick in 06 Barely There - This lipstick is probably one of my favourite lipsticks that I've had for a while, especially from the drugstore. The formula is creamy and they are long lasting. The shade isn't usually a shade I would go for but I absolutely love it and I definitely think it'll be a shade I wear for spring. This lipstick is a total bargain at £2.29 and the packaging is nice too. I will definitely be investing more of these lipsticks as they are such good quality and easy to apply.

*Essence Lipliner in 05 Soft Berry - This is the first lipliner I've owned and I'm not really a big fan of lipliners in general but I really liked this one. The colour is a perfect match for the Longlasting Lipstick in 06 Barely There  and so this is the perfect lip combination. The lipliner is easy to sharpen and is a soft consistency and is therefore easy to apply and is not scratchy on the lips. This lipliner is only £0.99 and so I will definitely be investing in more of these.

Nail look created with:
*Essence gel nail polish in 20 beautiful lies - I love trying new nail polish and I love gel nail polish in particular and so I was excited to try this. The shade is definitely not a normal 'me' colour but I actually really liked it. My nails didn't start to chip until the 7th day and so I was really impressed. For only £1.60, I will definitely be investing in some more shades as they are really good quality.

*Essence gel nail polish base coat - I never really use a nail polish base coat but I definitely think this helped as it meant that my nails didn't get stained and I think it helped the application of the gel nail polish and the amount of time it didn't chip. For £2.50, I think it's a bargain and I would definitely recommend it.

*Essence gel nail polish top coat - Again, I never really use a nail polish top coat, even though I probably should. I think it definitely helped to prolong the amount of time that my nails didn't chip and again for £2.50 it is a total bargain.

You can find Essence products in Wilkos.
