I’ve been very curious about Essence Cosmetics for a long while now. Gio raves about it and its really affordable in Europe from where it hails. So when I noticed the brand logo at a kiosk locally, I pounced and picked up 3 items.
You will be happy to know that these are also relatively affordable locally, although not at the crazily low prices of €2.99 and the like seen in Europe and the USA. Still, I’m not really complaining when these 3 items cost just slightly over RM40. RM40.70 to be exact! You get a whole face for under RM50! A couple of product pictures are below for your viewing pleasure.
Since I’m so into blushes, naturally one purchase involved a blush – Silky Touch Blush in Secret It Girl. A lovely peach blush. I’ve worn it for a day or two and its not too bad for the price. It was RM12.90 Can’t complain eh?
For some reason, I’m into neutral eyeshadows lately, so this Essence Metallics eyeshadow palette stood out. I actually really liked the taupe shades in there. This palette was RM17.90 and swatched quite prettily.
And finally, an Essence Stay With Me Longlasting lipgloss – RM9.90 in a bright fuchsia shade. Yeah, me and my bright lips Its quite thick and there is a bit of sweet scent so I’m getting to grips with it before I tell you more.
Honestly, at those prices, I’m not really complaining, are you?
I’ll have reviews come up soon. I know you are all just DYING to find out if a low pricetag means crappy quality yes? Based on online reviews, Essence has got wonderful reviews. Their nail polishes in particular get a lot of raves but I’m not into nails so you’d have to try that out yourself.
You’ll have to come back for my thoughts on these soon. I’m giving them a go as we speak! Have you tried anything from this brand? Do share if you have!
I purchased my Essence Cosmetics from a store called Coci Coci along the sidewalk of Jalan Bukit Bintang, in front of Wisma Peladang, next to Lot 10. Its a stand alone kiosk. You can learn about the brand here.
