Essence - First Impressions

Essence coming to the UK has been buzzing around blogs for quite a while now and when they were said to be sold in certain Wilkos I never thought it would be one near me. However, to my surprise, I discovered a fresh new stand in my local Wilkos and picked up a few products to try for myself.







The products are so cheap but didn't look the slightest bit tacky. At the moment I've got a thing for lip liners (desperately trying to nail the Kylie Jenner look) so seeing as they were only £1 I got the shades 07 Cute Pink and 12 Wish Me A Rose. Cute Pink pretty much sums up the shade of this lip liner, its a 'your lips but better' shade with a hint more pinky tones running through it. Wish Me A Rose is much lighter, for that English Rose look. The formula of these is very creamy and not overly drying so can be worn all over the lips as well. The finish is matte too, which I love as I'm really not a fan of glossy/shimmery lip liners.





As the products were on 3 for 2, the other product I purchased was a Lipstick in the shade 01 Coral Calling. It's a beautiful coral, its a beautiful every day summery shade. It's a matte finish but not drying and has fairly good pigmentation. I'm very impressed with the quality and the packaging of it for £2.30 and I will hopefully be going back to pick up a few more shades.
