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!

Beautiful Cargo Cosmetics! I WON!

top banner


I kindly won a giveaway on IG by CARGO Cosmetics along side LeSportSac. I’m truly grateful. I’ve never tried Cargo Cosmetics or ever owned anything by LeSportSac so I’m sooo excited to share my experience with you. WOo HOO!



I kindly received the palette “You Had Me at Aloha”  and I’m absolutely in love with this palette.  The colours are so pretty! Look at them all!


Hula – champagne (shimmer)

Waikiki – light peach (matte)

Hapuna – ivory (matte)

Kona – medium brown (shimmer)

Shell – light pink pearl (shimmer)

Shaka – medium pink purple (matte)

Hibiscus – light yellow (matte)

Island – peach (shimmer)

Kai – teal (shimmer)

Tiki – deep brown (matte)

Lei – violet (matte)

Luau – aubergine (shimmer)

Features and Benefits:

Palette includes 12 shades.

Versatile, dual-ended eye shadow brush delivers professional results.

Black eye liner pencil (sharpenable) completes the look.

Paraben free formulas.

I really love this eyeshadow palette. It is so stunning! The pigmentation is really lovely and it blends so nicely. I absolutely love it!


I also received SWIMMABLES Longwear Matte Liquid Lipsticks 


I missed CAPE TOWN in the swatches above because I had it in my purse so that’s why I took a photo on its own but I love all the colours and the formula is very long wearing and waterproof. It will not budge. The formula is light and dries fast. It’s not heavy at all, the downfall is that It is sticky/tacky a little when I press my lips together. Matte lip formulas are very tricky. I was just saying on IG stories the other day that the new Maybelline Super Stay Matte INK formula is also sticky. So unfortunate because I’m in love with these colours but that sticky tacky feeling is still there and it is so annoying to me. Look at how beautiful cape town colour is! Dreamy! I might try adding lip primer and see how it goes. Also I’m going to try with a lip gloss on top and see how that goes as well because I love the colours so much.


I also kindly received the beautiful SWIMMABLES eyeshadow sticks. These are really lovely smooth and creamy. I love these eyeshadow sticks so much because they are super easy to put on, the formula goes on evenly, very pigmented, blends nicely and they are super long lasting.


Last I’m sharing with you my favourite mascara for this summer. It is INCREDIBLE!  The Dare to Flair Mascara is so lovely and I love the curvature of the wand. This wand fits perfect in the eye area and it grabs all the hairs. I’m so happy I won this mascara.  It doesn’t come off and smudge on my eyelids with this summer heat. Even some waterproof mascaras come off on my eyelids and it is so annoying. This mascara and top coat is my favourite summer go-to eyelash product. I absolutely love it!


Here is the makeup look that I created with CARGO Cosmetics.

I used the “You had me at aloha” eyeshadow palette.  In the crease I used “Luau“, on the eyelid I used the colour “shell” and “Shaka“, on the brow bone I used a little of “Waikiki” and under the eye I used the beautiful “Kai“. I also used the black eyeliner that comes with the eyeshadow palette on my waterline. I used the Dare to Flair Mascara and the waterproof mascara top coat.  On my lips I have two colours. I added the Sorento matte liquid lipstick and let it dry and then added the Montalk matte liquid lipstick on top.



What do you think of this makeup look? Would love to know.

Here are the three beautiful bags from LeSportSac. The quality is incredible! The material is light and perfect for summer and yet the material, handles and zippers are so strong. I’m so impressed by the quality of the bags. I love the design as well. Super fun and cute.


Thank you so much to CARGO Cosmetics for the beautiful makeup. Thank you so much to LeSportSac for the beautiful set of bags.  I’m truly grateful that I won. Thanks so much! I love everything!

*I won these products and this is not sponsored or an AD.

I’m truly grateful that I received two beautiful Vanity Palettes to feature in this post. Here’s a little video that talks about both of these beautiful palettes. There are 4 eyeshadows, one blush, one bronzer and one highlighter. The beautiful vanity palettes are infused with green tea, ginseng and B Vitamins. The Dream Chaser has beautiful everyday makeup and the Goal Digger can create dramatic evening looks.


The packaging of the Vanity Palettes are truly wonderful. I absolutely love the big mirror and how it clicks up and you can move it to your liking. “Just pull the palette mirror upwards and the palette transforms in to the mini vanity of your dreams!”  I also love that one palette is shiny on the outside and one is a flat. Really beautiful, simple and elegant. They are both lightweight and plastic but they are strong and durable.

I love the positivity coming from the names of each palette and each colour. It is so uplifting. The pigmentation is unreal! I was so blown away when I was creating my makeup looks. Bold beautiful colours, bright and very long lasting.
