Essence Review & Giveaway

Hi Lovelies … Remember I said that I’d be having another Giveaway and this is so way due..I’ve been putting this review on hold because I havent had the time to paint my nails and photograph it but it’s finally done and here I am to share with you my thoughts on Essence products.

So first up is the Essence Colour3 which I got in Midnight Date & City That Never Sleeps. I love all blues, be they navy, midnight, prussian, name it so I couldn’t resist picking this up at Watsons when I was there the last time around. Priced at RM 13.90, this nail polish is made in France and like all Essence Products boasts fun and youthfulness in its packaging.

With a shade on either side, this is a handy polish to take on the go as you can use either or combine both to make a 3rd colour,hence the product name.

Midnight... so love this colour :)

Midnight Date 4ml… so love this colour 🙂

City that never sleeps... this one definitely glams it up

The brush is  extra long and glides very well over the nails.

So how did it look on my finger nails? Check out the pictures 🙂

Midnight Date is an opaque colour, glides on really well and I felt one layer was enough. On the other and City That Never Sleeps is sheer and perfect as a top coat…. it has turquoise flecks that shimmer beautifully in the sunlight.

Overall I’m really impressed with the nail polish, the colour was stunning and it lasted a good 5 days before the edges started chipping. For the price and quality offered this item was a steal. I’m pretty excited to try out the other exciting colours in this range, 6 duo’s  in total…. 

Now some of you may know how much I love eye liners, so when I saw the Essence Kajal pencils I could not resist. I got mine in 01 Black, can’t go wrong with black right. This pencil which is made in Germany is priced at RM 4.90 at Watsons.

The pencil has a creamy texture and goes on well. The line is a little thick but I personally like thicker lines especially nights. However on the down side, this pencil smudges really easily, so use it lightly otherwise you will end up with Panda eyes…. it stays on for a good 3 hours or so, perhaps longer in a cooler temperatures.  Excellent value for the price but since I’m really particular about my eye pencils and liners..I probably will be giving this one a miss.

Creamy textured so line is somewhat thicker

Ok,so that was my review on 2 items I absolutely love…nail colours and eye pencils. And here now is the Essence Giveaway and details on how two lucky ladies can win a trio of Essence make up items.

  5. I hope I’m not too late.
    I want to win this giveaway because I can never achieve the smokey eyes look perfectly. I tend to look like a panda always. Hehehe… Maybe I could achieve it with the Essence Smokey Eyes Set.

    • Hi Nadia, me too, somehow the smokey look never works for me, then again with my skin tone, it’s a little hard to achieve. Perhaps better luck for both of us next time 🙂

      • Hi Sharon, lol… nope… I see other ladies with dark skin also look good with smokey eyes. Maybe our skill of making the smokey eye isn’t that good/ perfect yet. Hopefully I will be able to master it in the future.
