Essence is a makeup brand I had only really heard of from people online being that I didn't have any stores near me that ranged it. But a couple of weeks ago I happened to be near a Wilkos so I popped it to see what they had to offer.
I'm just going to quickly add how impressed I am with their range of products and variety of colours etc as I took a good 30 minutes browsing and picking out what I wanted to try out first.
First I picked up two powder products which I've seen multiple times on many blogs. Essence Blush Up! Blusher and Essence Sun Club Bronzer both intrigued me and when I saw them on the stand I immediately picked both up. I have yet to try these out so look forward to reviewing them soon.
Next is another cult product I've seen mentioned a lot and it is their Essence The Gel Nail Polish. I love gel polishes but can't afford to fork out to continuously get them done so when I find a cheap alternate I have to have it in every colour. I will be purchasing more colours in this range.
Finally I picked up a couple of dupes of higher end brands. Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel is a dupe for Benefit Gimme Brow and with a difference of £16 it is definitely worth checking out. I love it and will be repurchasing when I'm done with this one. Also another is Essence I Heart Stage Eyeshadow Base which I have found to be a great dupe for NYX HD Eyeshadow Base but at the bargain price of £2.50 it still makes my eyeshadow last all day so is worth the saving.
