comments off

If you haven’t been living under a rock these last few weeks you would have noticed that the essence Lash Princess mascara has completely broken the internet and what better way for essence to celebrate than to release more amazing products?


The updates essence have in store definitely do not disappoint, so from the plenty of new products and colours to choose from we’ve tried, tested and narrowed down our top 10 favourites to share with you before they soon become available on


Firstly, the essence Metal Shock Lip Paint in the shade 04 mercury is a definite dupe for Heir by Kylie Cosmetics. It is a beautiful sparkly light metallic shade and is perfect for adding that extra glam as an ombre over a plain matte lip! Being only £3.30 it makes an essential ‘oomph’ lip product for sure!

The new essence lip products don’t stop there! Their Vibrant Shock Lip Paintare the matte but bold equivalent to the Metal Shock Lip Paints and our two favourite colours are the 01 voyeur and 03 red viper. Both are super creamy, non-drying but matte finishes and the first is a pretty essential nude whilst the other a deep berry shade to get in the spirit this season!

One product that is already being spoken about is the Fresh & Fit Awake Primer, this primer minimizes pores and makes a beautiful base giving your skin a healthy glow after applying foundation or without! This primer is definitely worth getting if you’re after flawless looking skin, without the price tag!

The essence updates have a ton of fun products that add sparkle and shine to any make-up look and one of our favourites is the Prismatic Hololighter Stick, a super creamy highlighter that lasts day and night once appliedThe best thing about this highlighter is, although it’s iridescence gives flashes of pinks, whites and blues, the pigmentation can be built up to the desired intensity. So although it may seem like a party product, it can also be used as an everyday highlighter that gives a stunning shine to the cheekbones!

One of our ultimate favourites of the top 10 is the Superlast Eyeliner in Deep Black, there is nothing fancy or ‘in your face’ about this eyeliner apart from the fact that it is very good… and for the price, why wouldn’t you want one of these in your makeup bag? No eyelid transfers or under eye smudges, it really doesn’t budge. Once you get the hang of the applicator wand, this cheap and cheerful eyeliner is a dream.

Our second top favourite has to be the Metal Shock Eye shadow, the formula makes for some of the most bold eye shadows we’ve ever used! Our favourite colour 02 stars & stories is a vibrant, super sparkly rose gold that adds a vibrant light pop to yours eyes. When first applied, the wet application can be blended in to the eyes but also built on for more colour and once they dry these babies do not budge!! We’ll take ten of each please…

One handy product we are fans of is the Strong & Clean Nail Polish Remover Extra Power, the size and packaging makes it handy to carry with you if you’re travelling and is especially good with those stubborn polishes. The essential nail polish remover you didn’t know you needed until now… and it smells great!

Now did you hear about those new makeup applicators that overtook the necessity of a beauty blender?! The Sili Make-Up Pad is the new best way to apply your makeup, it doesn’t absorb any product and is super easy to keep clean (with just one wipe)

If you’re looking for some fun sparkly products then the last two will be right up your street! The Holo Rainbow Nail Polishes are the perfect way to add sparkle to your nails, adding a holographic shine to your nail varnish it works great as a top layer over colour polish or perfectly on its own!

Now last but definitely not least the Party/Rock/Fame In A Bottle Loose Glitters are a sparkle lovers heaven! These glitters can be used to make statement nails but why stop there? The ‘chunkiness’ of these loose glitters mean they make the perfect universal product! Grab some eyelash glue and stick this glitter anywhere, fancy adding a pop to your eyes? Use the 03 rock for some silver sparkle! Or your highlight? Use the 01 party for an iridescent glow!


All products will be available on soon

Beauty lovers on Reddit are going crazy for a £3.30 mascara after one user shared her dramatic lash transformation!  EllieDaisyLouise posted an image of herself where her lashes on one eye were coated with the essence Lash Princess False Effect Mascara and her lashes on the other were left bare. ‘Can’t believe this mascara was only £3.30! Sorry for the picture quality but this is the essence Lash Princess mascara and I HIGHLY recommend it,’ she wrote.



The difference between the two eyes was so impressive – the mascara took her lashes from short and sparse to long and luscious – that the post received more than 300 comments in one day!  Other users followed, posting pictures of their impressive results and raving about the product’s affordability.


One user said: ‘can now confirm that the essence Lash Princess mascara that was posted about a day ago is in fact amazing (so thank you to EllieDaisyLouise).’


Another commented: “I bought it, tried it, and highly approve of it!’ and Reddit user jtkermie praised the bargain beauty product saying ‘this is AMAZING! All day at work PLUS an hour of intense gym with no smudging or flaking!


The Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara has a special conic shaped fibre brush which provides lashes with length, dramatic volume and a false-lash effect. A superbly affordable mascara for intensive fluttering lashes!

Back to School Beauty

The best way to get the new school year off to a great start is with a faultless beauty regime. As much as everyone tries to maintain their wake-up at 6am for an hour long morning routine throughout the year we can all admit that by November messy hair and no makeup is a daily occurrence, so this year dedicate your time more efficiently in the morning by preparing a quick, easy and bulletproof beauty regime that you can maintain all year long.


Before your beauty regime comes into play however, there are some essentials that will keep you feeling and looking your best without makeup. Firstly, getting enough sleep is vital, not only will it be easier staying on top of your early starts but your skin will thank you for it – because nothing is more time consuming than covering dark circles when you could just avoid them altogether! Staying hydrated is also key to radiant clear skin which in turn chops your beauty regime time in half because you won’t feel like you need to cover up your face. Keep your skin glowing with a fool proof skincare routine as well, we recommend the Vitage® Essential Cleansing Balm which is the number one skincare product that is an ultimate time saver… you can find out more about it here.


After these important prep steps your beauty regime should be quicker and easier, because not everyone wants to or has the time to sit down for half an hour blotting and blending foundation. Perfect your beauty regime with these new Essence products that will accentuate your features giving a minimally natural day time look perfect for back-to-school.


To maintain coverage that lasts all day whilst avoiding a caked face, Essence’s new Fresh & Fit Awake Primer and Make-up is your best bet. The primer gives a healthy glow and even skin tone with the foundation offering fuller coverage that will last all day long. At school most people like to keep their makeup to a minimum so you can leave your skin there or add a brush of your bronzer and blush to add more dimensions and colour to your face. After that an absolute must is curling your eyelashes! Many people don’t know the wonders an eyelash curler can do in opening up your eyes and giving naturally longer thicker looking lashes so if you haven’t invested in one yet, you definitely should! Adding a hint of mascara to your freshly curled lashes with Essence Instant Volume Boost Mascara Smudge-Proof and Waterproof Mascara will intensify your eyes with mascara that won’t budge! Finally pop on Essence Kiss The… Lipstick which adds a pink tint, enhancing your natural lip colour and avoiding that lifeless ‘foundation lips’ look.

All essence products are available from and these products will be coming soon to the new collection.

The Perfect Eyeshadow Palette

comments off

Our favourite eyeshadow palette at the moment is the Beauty Bakerie Neapolitan EyesCream Palette, with 7 shimmers and 5 mattes.


What we love most about this palette is that it isn’t limited to certain tones or shades, you have your essential light pinks, medium nudes and dark browns but also a warm orange that is perfect as a transition shade and a deep purple for adding depth and colour to your crease.


Endless different eye looks can be created with the Neapolitan EyesCream palette and you’re not confined to only mattes or only shimmers either! It’s an essential palette for flawless brown smoky eyes, creating a bold purple cut crease or just using the light pinks to brighten the inner corners of your eyes! That’s only a few suggestions of what you can perfect with these highly pigmented shades!


Although what is most important is …it’s on sale!!!


This palette has now been reduced to £26.95 on
