Essence Haul

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

I really can't resist the lure of the essence counter. I went in search of black brown mascara. Ididn't find any but still came away with a few bits. 

The stand I go to is in Manchester Arndale and it's pretty huge, I can't help but be attracted to all the pretties. It's all reasonably priced and I keep seeing in my time hop from a couple of years ago showing Essence things I bought on Holiday wishing I could buy it here and now I can and I do.

Say No to Redness - I've been getting a few breakouts recently. My hormones are all over the place and this is sending my skin crazy. I've been using this under my foundations. I'm still having to use conceder as well but it does kill some of the redness but it does need something extra over it.
I don't think I'd buy it again after my first impression but I will carry on using this.

Lash Princess Mascara -  I was looking for black brown mascara but came away with another black one. This has a quirky shaped brush and came with a free eyeliner felt pen. I haven't tried it as yet but I have high hopes as I've really liked the other Essence Mascara's I've used.

Eye liner  - I've had this before and it's got a really nice thin nib and good staying power from what I remember. I've yet to try this one but as a freebie it's not bad.

 Blush Brush  - I bought this for my one the go makeup bag. It's lovely and soft and I think it's really cute. So far I've only used it for pressed powder. I might use it for bronzer as well.

Good Girl Bad Girl Nail Topper  - Essence often have a one off range. The current one is Good Girl Bad girl. They have some cute things in but one of the two things that caught my eye was this nail topper. it's gold and rose gold which I'm really loving at the moment. The other thing was a fragrance in the bad girl smell. I can't put my finger on what it reminded me of sadly they'd sold out and i've been back. I don't know if they'll be getting any more in. I can't decide if I should try and hunt some down or save my money?! Does anyone have it? Does the smell last and how does it wear throughout the day?
