It has been quite some time since I purchased some Essence Cosmetics. So today while I was at Pavi I decided to pick up some makeup (as if I don't have enough already.. oh well.. haha). These are the products I bought:
1) XXXL Shine Lip Gloss
Last week I saw my cousin using this product and I also tried it myself, and I really liked it. Therefore, as soon as I saw it available on the stand I grabbed it without thinking twice about it. It is in the color '021 Red Blossom'.

A colleague at work has these nice full and long lashes, and I always wonder what mascara she uses. A few days ago I decided to ask her and she recommended this mascara.
First Impressions: I haven't used it yet, however I like the wand, it is full and round, perfect to build up volume. We'll see how I like it.
3) Long Lasting Eye Pencil
Lately, I have been obsessed with the color royal blue. I end up buying everything in that color from clothes, to makeup, to nail polish, even my car has a very similar color. Therefore as soon as I saw this color in an eye pencil form, I had to get it. It is in the color '09 Cool Down'.
I got this product on a whim, just to try it out. It is in the color '04 Blonde'.
First Impressions: Again, it is pigmented, and I like that it has a small eye brow brush attached to the cap. Value for money product ;)
I never tried any face makeup from Essence, apart from blush and bronzer. I thought I'd start with a concealer, also I needed a new one. It is in the color '01 Matt Sand'.
Last but not least, of course, I had to buy a lipstick. I really like Essence lipstick and I have a couple of them. It is in the color '64 Flirty Pink'.
Until next time,
