Essence Cosmetics - brand overview.. initial impressions :)

Recently I found out that essence is sold in shops in Malta, 
so of course, I had to get to it and get me some. 

This is a mere brief overview of the products for you to get an idea of what I think. 
Full reviews are coming soon. 

and I'm going to buy much much more.. so yeah.
this is not the last post. 
When I think about it, 
I have very little items, but I'm going to get me much more trust me.


Essence soft touch mousse makeup [04 matt ivory]
I LOVE this shiiiiiizzle. 
I use a lighter shade to brighten up my under eye circles.. 
I usually apply two coats.. and it's enough for my evil dark under eye area. 
I am going to get one matching my skin to use as foundation because I LOVE this. 

Essence mono eyeshadows [blockbuster, forest gump]
 I only have two of these eyeshadows. 
You get a ton of product, 
and the pigmentation is amazing. 

Essence waterproof liquid eyeliner
I LOVE this. 
I wish the tip of the sponge applicator was more pointy to get a sharper line, 
but that's okay. 
It's smudgeproof, 
and kind of waterproof, 
unless you vigorously rub your eye when the liner is wet. 

Essence i love style liquid eyeliner [ultra black]
I quite like this. 
But this is not smudgeproof and not waterproof. 
Also, it has a glossy finish which I'm not a fan of, unlike the other one, which dries matte.

Essence lipliners [soft rose, soft coral]
These lipliners are really nice. They're not the most amazing lipliners in the world in terms of pigmentation
but they are super soft and do their job nicely. 

Essence stay natural concealer [soft nude]
Err. This is probably the least favourite product in the bunch. 
It's okay, 
but it's rather sheer for a concealer.
Especially for my dark under eye area..
so I'm not going to repurchase this one..

Essence nail polishes [viva la green, hard to resist]
I LOVE these nail polishes. 
You get 5ml of product, which is enough for me...
I don't get why polishes have like 10ml of product when half way through usage it dries up.
I only apply one coat with these, maximum two. 
They dry quite quick and they last quite a long time. 

FTC DISCLAIMER: I am not paid to do this post. I bought the product myself for my personal use unless otherwise stated and I am not affiliated with any company. Everything I said in this review is my genuine honest opinion :)
