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.
