| New Essence Products To Try! |

Essence is one of my favourite budget brands and I was kindly gifted some of their products to try recently. I've been testing out lots of their new launches since March and for today's post I'll be rounding up my top picks out of everything I've tried. From a hero mascara to a dewy highlighter to an everyday lipstick, here are some new Essence products you need to know about!

I'll start off my with favourite pick of the bunch, the Volume Hero Mascara* {Review}. This gem comes with a small price tag of €3.80 but it provides maximum results that are just as good as other pricier mascaras. The product provides my lashes with volume, length, a curl and gives them a fluttery appearance. Price: €3.80

My next favourite is their Make Me Brow Eyebrow Powder* and I was so excited to try this because I've wanted to try the Make Me Brow brow gel from them for so long but it's always sold out it in my shade in my local Penneys *insert crying emoji* I will track down a Make Me Brow brow gel in the brunette shade one day but until then the eyebrow powder is making sure my brows are on fleek! The product comes with a little sponge applicator that coats the brows with a few quick swipes but it's important to wipe off the excess before applying the product otherwise there's a lot of fallout. It's an easy, effortless product to use to achieve soft, natural brows for my everyday makeup look. Price: €3.10

I'm loving cream highlighters for Spring and two that I've been reaching for from Essence are the 3D Dewy Look Stick* and the Holo Wow! Sparkle Stick*. The former provides a natural glossy look to the skin, it's transparent so there's no champagne, gold or peachy tones to it like other traditional highlighters and it just makes the skin look fresh, youthful and healthy, it's like your own oils shining through - It looks beautiful on the skin and is the perfect addition to my everyday makeup bag! Whilst the latter is an iridescent pink hue with tiny flecks of shimmer and I tend to reach for this one when I'm wearing a bit more makeup. Price: €4.40

Another highlighter I've been testing out is their Glow Like A Mermaid Highlighter*. I've never tried a mermaid highlighter before but I was really impressed with this one! When I first apply the highlighter to the skin you can see a slight hint of the colours showing up on the cheeks but once you blend it out it changes to a beautiful white highlight shade. Price: €4.40

New Essence Products

A base product I've been enjoying is their You Better Work! Primer*. This primer has a green tint to it so I find that it cancels out redness quite well, it smooths the skin, making makeup apply better and it makes my foundation last a bit longer on my oily chin and nose. Price: €4.40

I've been trying a couple of their new lip products including the Draw The Line! Instant Colour Lipliner in 'So Un-Grey-Tful'*. The formula of the lip liner is very creamy, it glides onto the lips effortlessly without tugging the lips, and it's so creamy that it can be worn all over the lips too. It's also extremely pigmented and the shade is a cool-toned greyish mauve. I've often just been applying this on its own all over the lips and patting the colour down for a subtle makeup look but it also looks lovely paired with other lipsticks too. Price: €1.90

Another new lip product I've been reaching for is the Colour Up! Shine On Lipstick in 10 Rosey Glitz*. This lipstick has a creamy, glossy formula and feels hydrating on the lips, making it ideal for when my lips are feeling dry. The shade is a classic deep pinky nude hue and it isn't overly pigmented so it's ideal for minimal everyday makeup looks. Price: €4.80

And last but not least is the Create & Transform My Wonder Lip Palette*. This lip palette is packed full of vivid colours that you can mix and match to create your perfect lipstick shade. Some of the colours are wearable on their own like the bright coral, the deep rosy nude, a light baby pink, and a striking orange-toned red. The formula of the lip products are very creamy and they have a slight glossy sheen to them. I never thought I would like a lip palette but I'm surprised at how often I've been reaching for this - I love applying the nude shades with my finger for a quick everyday look. Price: €11.25
