Morning Poutlings,

I’m sure the majority of you have seen the name or brand at some point and are either using some of the products or you find yourself staring when you walk past it.

As someone who tries to not wear make-up on a regular basis and of course being a make-up artist still fighting my way to the top I love Essence, here is why:

1. They are affordable 

2. They cater for everyone’s needs when it comes to cosmetic’s 

3. Easy to come by

4. Their products are of good quality

5. IT SPARKLES!!!!! 

I’ll stop at that for now 😉

By now you’ve guessed it, YES I have Essence in my make-up kit and yes I have made use of their   Nail range as well,

In all honesty I can’t really think of a bad thing to say about this brand, the only thing however that does get to me a little is that SOME of their  eye shadows don’t show up as bright as I would like them to on white skins but even for that I cannot give them a bad crit because they Have the essence colour arts pigments range and yes it works, and not only do you have to stop at using it for eye shadow but you can also use it on your lips and nails
