Essence Cosmetics Fall & Winter Makeup 2017

banner fall blog

I’m very excited to share Essence Cosmetics Fall/Winter makeup. The Fall makeup is really beautiful and natural. The products can be used for a soft look or dramatic evening look. Very versatile and beautiful for every skin tone.

This is the Essence Eye & Face Palette in 01 Glow For It. I really love the pigmentation and colours. They are absolutely beautiful. They blend nicely and are perfect for everyday and evening. They last all day and I love that this palette also has a lovely highlighter and cheek colour.


This is the Essence BLUSHPLAY Sculpting Blush Palette in 10 Play it Peach. Very beautiful and gives a healthy look to the complexion. Beautiful peach colours! They are really lovely and give the skin a healthy look.


The Colour Correcting Sticks are fantastic for helping the complexion. The PURPLE 05 Say no to tired skin is a creamy colour correcting stick that eliminates dullness & harmonizes skin tone. You apply it directly on imperfections and blend it. Then there is the Liquid concealer in 10 Pastel Pink. This really helps with dark circles. The GREEN 04 say no to redness helps neutralize redness. You apply on imperfections and blend. Very creamy and easy to work with.


Here are my favourite lip glosses. Definitely my October Favourites! Matt Matt Matt long lasting lipgloss in the colours 03 Girl of today, 02 Beauty Approved! Also a clear gloss, 01 behind the scenes.




Top swatch is 02 Beauty Approved, Second swatch is 03 Girl of Today. Last one is the clear one.


This is the Essence all About Matt fixing compact powder. All about matt is extremely smooth waterproof fixing compact powder for a matt and natural finish all day long. Helps to blend blush and foundation colours together. Fixes make-up when applied as finishing powder for all skin types.


This is Essence instant MATT make-up setting spray.  Oil-free and non sticky. It is very lightweight. It keeps the makeup in place all day and It doesn’t feel like you have anything on. It’s lovely matt spray. You can also use this as a primer.


This is Essence Waterkiss lipgloss lip colour. This is in the colour 05 Ocean Girl. This feels very light and it has a liquid formula that feels light. At the same time it is pigmented and doesn’t stain the lips. It feels like a stain formula but comes off easy. It doesn’t have the same consistency as the Essence glosses. This formula has more of a water base sensation.


The Honey Care smells so good! I really love the scrub. It really exfoliates  nicely and smells so delicious. The hand cream is wonderful as well. Very hydrating and moisturizing.


I also have Essence Strobing Highlighting eyeshadow base. A fantastic base that gives a lovely highlight to any eyeshadow. It also helps the eyeshadow from creasing. Essence Strobing Highlighter Stick. Love this highlight. Goes on so smoothly and softly. Looks amazing and doesn’t have glitter. A beautiful illuminating light. The Essence Make me matt lip top coat is brilliant! If you have a drying matt lip product you can just add this on top and it will give a little hydration to the lips without changing the formula. Brilliant! The Cover Stick is fabulous! I have the colour 20 matt sand. It is soft and creamy and blends nicely on the skin. The metal shock lipstick in the colour 02 GUNS’N ROSE is the prettiest pink ever! Absolutely breathtaking metallic lipstick.


This little eyebrow kit is perfect! I absolutely love it and love how small and compact it is. These work brilliantly and are amazing to keep in your makeup bag. They are little but they work really nicely! The tweezers grab the little hairs perfectly. Amazing for travelling and on the go.


I love a beautiful French Manicure and these tips really help create the perfect French Manicure look. Very stylish and classy.  They are super easy to use. I haven’t tried the stand out 3D Touch Manicure sticker yet but they look fantastic! I’m excited to try them.


These are brilliant Cooling and relaxing eye pads. You just place these in the fridge for one hour and then let the pads cool and relax your eyes. Perfect for tired eyes.


My favourite mascara at the moment. I love Lash Princess mascara and this is the sculpted volume. It works so nicely and I love the amazing volume and length that it gives my lashes. Definitely one of my October favourites!


I have two Essence pencils that are absolutely soft, creamy and long lasting. The Essence 01 Light Up Your eyes inner trim eye pencil, which is also wonderful to use all over the eyelid or even as eyeliner. Also the eyeliner in 18 Berry Merry is a beautiful berry colour.


Here I have a few makeup Looks Created with Essence Cosmetics Fall Winter Collection.


Thanks so much to Essence Cosmetics for the beautiful samples. I’m truly grateful and I adore everything!

Essence Cosmetics Fall/Winter 2016

Essence stands for quality cosmetics at affordable prices.

It’s that simple.

Come on, get happy! Embrace the cooler fall and winter months with voluminous lashes, earthy eyeshadows, deep and enriching lip hues and flushed cheeks from essence cosmetics.

Happiness is our essence.


101 I’m so excited for this post because the Essence Fall collection encapsulates everything that I love about fall. Fall is my favourite time of the year. I love the changing colours and the cool crisp air. I also really enjoy changing up my makeup and going with more earthy tones like deep burgundy, deep reds,  burnt orange, cool and warm tone nudes, rich browns and yellows. The Essence Fall Collection has all these beautiful colours and more to offer this fall. I’m very happy to share this beautiful collection with you. Are you ready? Let’s get started!


I love  Colour Intensifying eyeshadow Base

This is a must for me when putting on makeup. I find using a base really helps keep the eyeshadow on longer, it helps make blending really easy and also helps make the eyelid surface smoother. It also helps the eye shadow be more bold and bright.

I Colour Intensifying Eyeshadow Base

Intensify your eyeshadow color with this long-lasting light rose shade base to help

eyeshadow look as great as when you first applied it all day long.

SRP 3.99


Velvet Eyeshadow

These soft, long-lasting velvety textured shadows glide onto lids comfortably and can be easily blended, built or varied in intensity ranging from sheer to full coverage. Available in 9 shades.

SRP 2.49

I’m absolutely loving these eyeshadows. They are soft and smooth. Love the little print on them. I didn’t want to swatch them because of the cute blanket/sweater print. How cute right? These are really lovely and very affordable. The pigmentation is really good. These two colours are light so I’m not sure how the dark colours are. They have six in total and I totally want to get my hands on the darker burgundy colour. It looks like it would be amazing with the lighter taupe and grey. I really love the Velvets eyeshadow collection.



Effect Eye Pencil

These intense eye pencils work like magic! They leave behind a metal finish that creates long-lasting results and are available in a variety of beautiful colors that will really bring out the sparkle in your eyes.

Available in 4 shades.

SRP 3.99

I really love these long lasting pencils. They are soft, smooth and creamy and apply nicely. Very pretty and I love the 02 Gold-Digger. A beautiful yellow/gold. The gold has a very fine light glitter and the light reflects off of it so beautifully. 858689

2 in 1 Eyeshadow and Liner

This waterproof chubby eyeshadow stick combines the benefits of eyeshadow and eyeliner with its conic tip that doesn’t need sharpening. The creamy texture can be easily blended and is extremely long lasting. Available in 4 shades.

SRP 4.99

These are truly so beautiful! Creamy soft and gorgeous!

I’m absolutely loving these sticks! They are so pretty and they also make for a great eyeshadow base. The 03 light me up can be worn at the inner corners of the eyes for a lovely highlight effect. Really pretty eyeshadow sticks. The entire collection has four sticks and I would love to check out the darker ones. Definitely amazing eyeshadow sticks. You must give these a try. You will love them!


The Smokey Eye Pencil

Smokey eyes that will take your breath away are easier than ever before to create with these pencils. The integrated sponge applicator makes the waterproof, soft texture easy to blend for a look that will last. Available in 4 shades.

SRP 3.99

I really love these two pencils. They apply really nicely and smoothly. They blend out really beautifully with the sponge applicator. They have a nice shine and shimmer.


Forbidden Volume Mascara REBEL

The rebel sister of the original Forbidden Volume Mascara features a chaotic fiber brush to further boost lashes for an intensely voluminous look.

SRP 4.99


Forbidden Volume Mascara False Lash

Mascara Topcoat

Refresh lashes with this versatile topcoat on top of any mascara, anytime of day. The black fibers integrated into the formula instantly refresh and intensify your look.

SRP 4.99

These two mascaras make the best team.  The Forbidden Volume Mascara gives thickness and the top coat gives more volume and length because of the fibers. I really love the formula and feel that this combo gives the lashes a wow factor!


Dip Eyeliners

Eyeliner perfectionists – rejoice! Pull off ultra long lasting and high coverage eyeliner looks with this special applicator that is safe and easy to use. Also available in a waterproof version.

SRP 3.99

These two Dip eyeliners have a sponge applicator and at first I thought I would have a hard time because of the sponge tip but they work really nicely and what I like is that not too much product drips out. Also the sponge feels soft and glides on nicely. I also like that the product is a dark black in colour and doesn’t go grey like some liners do.


Liquid Ink High Shine Eyeliner

Black to basics! Create your favourite classic line with a high-shine finish. The easy to-use brush glides seamlessly across lids for a flawless look.

SRP 3.99

This reminds me of the Make Up For Ever vinyl felt liner but this one has a brush tip and i feel it works better. It is also much more affordable. I love the vinyl look and really love the tip of this applicator. This also comes in a Matte formula!


Mosaic Blush

Create your own wind-kissed, rosy cheeks this season with these tri-colored blushes that take the shape of a beautiful mosaic. Available in 2 shades.

SRP 3.99

This blush though. I can’t get enough of it! It is so pretty and I really love the triangles. This is an Art Piece!  Don’t you think? It was so difficult to dip my brush in it. I didn’t want to ruin it.  Seriously though this is a lightly pigmented blush. It will give you the best natural rosiest/peachy healthy glow on the cheeks. Very beautiful and I absolutely love it!


Pure Nude Highlighter

Bring out your natural glow with this baked powder that has a slightly marbled effect. Works on any skin tone and is perfect for adding a subtle shimmer to your face.

SRP 5.49

I’m so excited about this highlighter! I love highlighting so this is the perfect formula with the best price tag! Let me tell you that this formula is incredible. It applies nicely and shines beautifully! Not a glitter shine but a glowing shine which I’m loving at the moment.


Prettifying Lip Oil

The lightweight texture instantly melts and leaves lips with a subtle shiny finish and sweet taste. This formula contains Jojoba Oil that ensures moisturized and smooth lips sans stickiness.

Available in 3 shades.

SRP 3.99

With fall comes dry lips and these oils are super nice and moisturizing. I really like the formula and they smell lovely too. Usually with some lip products my lips itch and get tingly. My lips know if the product is not good for me. It’s like formula radar! This formula is fantastic! The formula feels smooth and silky on the lips, it smells wonderful and it is not gloopy or sticky. Truly lovely oils and very hydrating and nourishing.


2 in 1 Lipstick and Liner

This new lipstick is ultra-pigmented and combines the benefits of lipstick and lipliner into one easy to use product. Use the pointed tip to accurately outline lips and rotate to the side of the cone to fill them in. The creamy texture is super soft and glides right on for beautifully coloured and defined lips. The conic shape of the tip eliminates the need for a sharpener. Available in 5 shades.

SRP 4.99


I’m going to be honest and tell you I was so worried about these lip sticks. My worries came to an end when I tried  them on. I don’t like the fact that they don’t roll down and hide away in their container. That’s just my fear of my clumsy self.  But my worry is ruled out because of the brilliant formula, scent and pigmentation. You can maintain the point/tip of the lipstick if you use the sides to glide on the lipstick leaving the point only for lining the lips. The formula is not patchy and it glides on nicely and smoothly. The formula smells like a vanilla cup cake! So beautiful! I’m loving these lipsticks and I highly recommend them. There are five lipsticks in this collection.


Longlasting Lipliner

These lipliner pencils allow you to accurately trace the contours of your lips giving you your best lip shape. The soft texture provides intense and long-lasting color that won’t streak.  It’s also retractable for easy touch-ups when you’re on the go. Available in 9 shades.

SRP 3.99

These liners are soft, smooth and creamy. They are truly long lasting and waterproof. I really love all the colours. Available in nine shades these are great and have a nice soft texture.


BB Beauty Balm Lipgloss

This balm lipgloss has a high shine texture and leaves behind a beautiful color finish on your lips. Enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E ingredients, a soft and pampered pout without stickiness is now possible! Available in 5 shades.

SRP 4.49

These two lip glosses are really lovely because the pigmentation gives a lovely natural shine and colour to the lips. They feel really nice on the lips and not sticky or gloopy. They smell lovely and have shea butter in them. I really love the pigmentation of these because lip glosses usually don’t have that much pigment but these give the shine and also the colour payoff. Really beautiful formula and I must add cute packaging!


The makeup look that I created is an everyday look. I used the 2 in 1 eyeshadow and liner sticks: 03 light me up and 02 peach perfect. Then I added the velvet eyeshadows on top. I tried to keep the 05 Taupe secret closer to the inner part of the eye and the 04 you’re the greytest on the outer part. I also added the smokey eye pencil in 06 Robo-Cop on the bottom lash line. I also used the 2 in 1 lipstick and liner in 03 Ruby Wow. I used the mascaras Forbidden Volume and forbidden volume top coat to give me length and volume. What are your thoughts about the makeup look?

I’ll be bringing you a video of the products and a Autumnal Makeup look with all Essence Cosmetics very soon!
