Catchy packaging is the first thing that draws my attention. Either it is a makeup product or food, I can't resist checking the product out. I am very visual person and I like to have things in front of me to know what I think about it or whether I like it. Essence is what I would call a brand oriented on young girls but even so it has won over many older hearts too. Every month they come up with new limited edition and this month they got a range called 'Like an unforgettable kiss'. I got essence duo blush in 01 Pink Me where you get a bright pink blush that doesn't show very vivid when wearing it. Highlight that comes with a blush is great for a finishing touch.
I first got essence highlighter Big Bright Eyes before duo blush and where the first one is in pencil form it is also creamy and very easy to apply. I was expecting a hard pencil where I would have difficulty blending but it over exceeded my expectations and I can add it on my favourites list. It isn't in white colour as most highlighters but in nude and I use it on my lower waterline sometimes too.
S-he bronzer appears quite dark and with my skin tone someone might think it will make an ugly distortion on my face. Most difficulty I have with choosing bronzers and so far I have been purchasing lighter toned bronzers and those have made me look like I got a really bad tan. This one has been the first to accept as 'a passed product'. The pigmentation isn't strong but you can build it up. So far I have been using it only under my cheek bone area (no temples, upper forehead and so on).
These three are my go-to makeup products lately and I apply little of each whenever I go somewhere.
What do you think of essence and s-he? Have you tried them before?
