Essence Make-up Haul

Essence Make-up HaulA few weeks ago, I saw somebody mention on twitter that they had found the ‘essence range’ in Wilkos. I did a bit of digging and couldn’t really find much information about it.

From what I can gather, essence is a cheap brand that is new to the UK and is being sold in Wilkinson stores. It is currently popular in many other countries and is the number 1 make-up brand in a number of them.

I believe it’s aimed at the younger market and the items I saw were between 99p and £3.50.

I went to Manchester with some friends last week and I stumbled upon this range. It was not only cheap, but also on 3 for 2, so I decided to pick some items. I managed to bag myself 6 things for around £10.50

Metal Glam in Frosted Apple and Party All Night Metallic Effect.

After years of avoiding liquid liner, I finally tried the Soap and Glory eye liner and I am now a changed woman. Sad news about that though, folks. I was doing my makeup one morning, I pulled the lid off with my mouth and did my eyeliner. I then went to put the lid back on and I have no idea where the lid went. It just vanished from between my lips, I swear. I searched high and low, I had not moved from my seat but it had gone. I hope I did not swallow it up but I am pretty sure I did not.

So I’ve been using a DIY lid, which is the bottom of a pen to try and keep it from drying out, but it’s not working that well. Therefore I bought this one to use instead.

This twirls around or something. The Lash Curler, it’s called. It’s a mascara that makes your lashes curly by rotating as you put it on. I’ll try it out and review it for you.

Woo, nail varnish.I love nail varnish and there were many to chose from, both glitter top coats like this and some solid colours. I got 02 circus confetti and 10 glorious aquarius. I don’t know why I bought these to be honest as I do have two very similar already. But whatever. Expect to see some more NOTD posts using these! 😀

I’ll be reviewing these products in detail over the next few weeks!

Have you heard of these range before, what do you think of it?
