I have been a huge fan of Essence Products for some time.
I’ve tried eyeshadows, mascaras and the matte face powder is one of my faves!
It is a “Beauty under 10” favorite company – great quality and great price!
Essence was created in 2001 by a woman named Christina, who wanted to make a different cosmetics brand – a really fun brand that offers both great quality and excellent prices – just what I like!
The first launch was in Germany in 2002 and now it is worldwide!
Best of all, they are a cruelty free company – no animal testing!
Recently I purchased Essence nail polishes.
The gel nail polishes provide incredible shine in 34 different colors, and gel finish - no lamp required!
I recently purchased:
Basecoat - $3.99
Sweet as Candy -$1.99, a sheer light pink color
Party Princess - $1.99, a dark pink sparkly polish
Top Coat - $3.99
I did a super quick manicure using these polishes.
- Apply a base coat to help protect the nails.
- I applied Sweet as Candy to the nails, it is a sheer color so I used 3 – 4 coats.
- Using the small side of the brush, I applied Party Princess down the centre of the nails.
- Applied the gel top coat and I was done!
The polishes dried fairly quickly but Essence also has quick dry drops (my next purchase!).
The colors were sheer and I needed a few more coats than usual but that could just be the colors I chose.
Hope you found this to be fun and easy!
