COMING SOON: essence update must haves!

October 11th, 2017

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
