Now I’ve never been one to hide my love for Essence Cosmetics, but their latest Trend Edition “…& the lovely little things” completely blew me away.
The prettiness of the artwork is the first thing that strikes you about it. Beautiful, enchanting little characters etched on the outside of each product, so delicately placed they almost look like they were put there by hand.
Within the collection you have three different eye shadow palettes, each telling it’s own little story from every day life and the cleverness of how they’re named adds even further to their charm.
Each palette contains seven shadows and are priced at €6.25 each.
Next up and my personal favourite is the Face Palette entitled “& my crazy family”. Can we all just take a moment to look at this beauty please? I love it, and yes I am aware that so would a four year old but I don’t care, I’m obsessed with the packaging!! The Face Palette contains two highlighters, two blushers and two contouring shades. I was actually sent this product to try so I’m going to include some swatches for this one below. It is priced at €7.50.
Next up from the collection are the nail polishes. Now firstly let me tell you that Essence nail polishes are up there as one of my favourites, they’re so pigmented and they have excellent lasting power. The four in this collection are also decorated with the same type of artwork, making each one look like a stand alone character (Weak!!) Each polish is priced at €1.80
As well as nail polishes you can also add your own twist to the shades by using these Nail & Styling stickers. These are so much fun as you can use them as nail art or also on the palettes to customise them. The sheet of stickers is priced at €1.60.
Sticking to the subject of nails, the final nail product in the collection is a 2 in 1 nail file. This does exactly what it says on the tin but again has those gorgeous illustrations emblazoned on it. The file is priced at €1.90 but honestly I’m not sure I could bring myself to use it if I had it in my handbag, it’s just too cute!!
Last up in the collection are the lip balms. They come in two variations, “& you smile” which is in the pink tube and smells of strawberries and “& we kissed” in the peachy coloured tube and is mango scented. These are really subtly tinted lip balms designed to keep your lips moist and nourished and like everything else in the collection they’re beautifully designed too. These are priced at €2.90 each.
All of these are currently available in Penneys nationwide and from any Essence Cosmetics stand until the end of September so catch them while you can.
