This season Essence Cosmetics has developed trendy new makeup, skincare essentials and grooming tools to keep you looking fabulous without breaking the bank.
The new Metal shadows pack a bold punch of shimmer that is perfect for glam autumn looks and holiday parties. These are some of my favorite pigments from the brand because the formula is silky, highly pigmented and long-lasting with an incredible chrome finish that makes your eyes look mesmerizing. They are available in an assortment of trendy colors for just $4.99 each.
Usually we think of strobing as a method used to accentuate the face but Essence has totally changed the game with their new primer. The cream has a white, luminous finish to give any shadow an instant pop of radiance, prevent creasing and prolong wear. It makes pigments appear brighter, dazzling and a tad lighter in color for more brilliance. You can use the Storbing Highlighting Base with any brand or shade and it retails for just $4.49.
I spend hours on my computer, iPad and phone so my eyes are constantly strained, tired, dry and achy. The Cooling & Relaxing Eye Pads ($4.99) refresh and relieve swollen eyes and help prevent tension headaches. Simply pop the cute little cucumbers in the fridge to cool then sit back and relax.
The Blushplay Sculpting Palette ($6.99) was designed to create a multidimensional look with highlight, sculpting and defining powders. Play It Peach has light, uplifting shades that boost the complexion.
The Matte look is still very trendy so essence has released 2 great products to keep you shine-free and beautiful. The All About Matt Fixing Powder ($5.49) has a translucent, waterproof finish that withstands humidity and repels water to keep your makeup looking fresh. If you need a little extra protection against oil, the Instant Matt Setting Spray ($5.99) is transparent, lightweight and fragrance free. These are also great for vacation.
The Essence Eye & Face Palette ($6.99) is ideal for the holiday season with lustrous shimmer and soft, flattering hues. It comes with 4 shadows, 1 highlighter and 1 blush that are nicely pigmented, soft, smooth and buildable for great coverage.
The Honey Care Moisturizing Hand Cream ($4.99) and Regenerating Nail Cuticle Scrub ($4.99) repair and protect for soft, healthy skin. The non-greasy cream nourishes and conditions while the exfoliant smooths rough cuticles and nails. Both products are travel-friendly with a sweet, buttery scent.
The Style Your Brows Kit ($3.99) is perfect for grooming on-the-go! Pop it in your purse and use it to tweeze, comb and shape your brows into submission.
All of these products make fabulous stocking stuffers and Essence Cosmetics is available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Loblaws.
