So I recently got a chance to try out some Essence makeup products. Have you had a chance to try these products yet?
|I Love Punk Jumbo Eyeliner Pen|
This was one of my favorite things that Essence sent me. As you all know, I am a big fan of felt tip eyeliner pens. This one is so affordable at $2.99 and does a good job of line the tops of the eyes close to the lashes. my only concern is that is has a tendency to "fade" throughout the day. And what I mean by "fade" is that is becomes less BAM-in-your-face-black color and more worn looking. It's not bad by any means. Just in comparison to the Be a Bombshell liner, which will stay vibrant black all day, this one does not.
|Stays no matter what waterproof mascara|
This is a SERIOUS waterproof mascara. If you are going to be in the heat, humidity, or crying at a wedding or special occasion...then DO USE THIS MASCARA. But beware, it will take quite a while to get off. I recommend Coconut Oil to help ease this off. Additionally, this is a dry formula mascara. Some people love a dry formula, I however prefer a wet mascara that really coats the eyes.
This next product is my FAVORITE EYESHADOW FROM ESSENCE!
|Essence 3D Eyeshadow in Irresistible Caramel Cream|
This eyeshadow is amazing. It is so pigmented and shimmery. I love using the lighter shade (which is like a champagne shimmer) all over the lid or in the inner corners. Then I go lightly with a fluffy shader brush with the darker brown in the crease in circular motion. With a slightly more dense fluffy shader brush, I will take a little more of the dark brown and go deeper into the crease and blending it all out together. It's absolutely stunning on its own or with other products!
|Essence Night Club Eye Shadow Palette: I haven't had a chance to try this yet but it is so gorgeous!|
|Stays No Matter What Waterproof Eyeliner|
I used this (or tried to) on my lower water line. Not very good. Barely goes on. But looks good under the lashes on the lower lash line. Not a HUGE fan of it, but that also has to do with I like my pencils a bit on the smudgy side. This bad boy does not move!
I hope you guys liked this baby review on these products. I adore them and I can't wait to try more things. I've heard the eyeshadow primer is TO DIE FOR! I need that STAT!
