essence Spring/Summer 2023 Updates



It’s magic! The ELECTRIC GLOW COLOUR  CHANGING LIP & CHEEK OIL reacts with the natural pH-value of the skin and changes colour. The result: a soft shimmer of colour on your lips and cheeks with a natural finish. The formula is gluten-free, free of microplastic particles, parabens, silicones and mineral oil, and is enriched with nourishing peach kernel oil.

BRIGHTEN UP! banana powder  

The BRIGHTEN UP! banana powder in a soft yellow shade is perfect for adding matte highlights to give the complexion a natural looking glow. The translucent, mattifying powder is also ideal for the “concealer baking” technique. And now there’s a brand new shade in the update!

gimme GLOW luminous highlighter 

The gimme GLOW luminous highlighter has a butter-soft powder texture that is easy to apply and blend so you can easily set luminous accents on your face – to highlight the cheekbones, for example, and to give your complexion a radiant glow. Thanks to the buildable coverage, subtle effects  are just as easy to achieve as intensive highlights. 



Out of this world: the SPACE GLOW COLOUR CHANGING LIPSTICK is already a unique eye catcher on the outside thanks to its white purple marbled structure. Due to its pH-reactive formula, the lipstick changes colour once it’s applied on the lips, giving them a soft pink, natural-looking finish with a subtle shimmer effect. 

JUICY BOMB shiny lipgloss 

The popular JUICY BOMB shiny lipgloss is getting an update. The ultra-glossy, super-fruity performance remains the same, but now the lipgloss has a clean beauty. Thanks to its convenient size, the lipgloss is sure to fit into any handbag for a quick touch-up with a high-shine, non-sticky finish on the go. Available in five new colours with fruity fragrances. 

8h matte liquid lipstick 

This liquid lipstick is a must-have for all beauty lovers. The 8h matte liquid lipstick offers high coverage and instant colour payoff, as well as a long-lasting, waterproof and kiss-proof finish that  lasts up to eight hours. At the same time, the  creamy, matte texture feels pleasant on the lips and won’t dry them out. Thanks to the specially shaped applicator, the liquid lipstick can be applied  easily and accurately. 

TINTED kiss hydrating lip tint 

Nourished lips with a hint of colour – an easy task for the TINTED kiss hydrating lip tint. The weightless texture provides moisture, gives the lips a touch of colour and has a long-lasting finish with a natural look and feel.
