ESSENCE WAS STARTED IN 2001 BY CHRISTINA, A FEARLESS ENTREPRENEURIAL WOMAN, WHO WANTED TO MAKE A DIFFERENT COSMETICS BRAND – A REALLY FUN BRAND THAT OFFERS BOTH GREAT QUALITY AND EXCELLENT PRICES.
I’m sure it’s not new to you that I love me my essence LashMania mascara and the essence Silky Touch blush too! So I had to explore and found a few more. (Isn’t that a rhyme? HAHA)
“Soft as silk! The Silky Touch Blush has an ultra silky texture that blends evenly and easily. Add a touch of natural freshness and radiance to your complexion. Available in four glowing shades”
I am in-love with this essence SILKY TOUCH BLUSH not just because of it’s affordability ($2.99), but because of its formulation. From the name itself Silky Touch, this blush is very soft, highly pigmented and super smooth. With just a tiny product on the tip of your blush brush, you will definitely have a naturally glowing cheeks.

- Babydoll (20)
- Life’s a Cherry (60)
- Autumn Peach (80)
It’s unfortunate that my favorite essence LashMania mascara might have been discontinued. I had to search the web and found this site indianproductsonnet that sells essence LashMania mascara for $21.95 each?!? aahhmm no thanks!! LOL
I found the ALL EYES ON ME MASCARA with high hopes. It cost me $2.99 at Target as well as on their site.
The brush is very different from what I’m used to. It has a short brush, tiny and thin. This makes it easier to reach those bottom lashes, buildable and applies smoothly. I’ve tried this a few times and so far I’m impressed!

Eyeliner?!? I am still looking for the perfect eyeliner that is WATERPROOF, SMUDGE PROOF and AFFORDABLE too!
This EASY 2 USE JUMBO EYELINER has a large tapered felt tip which is great for your ideal cat-eye look.
You can do a thin or thick line on your lid depending on your mood.
- Waterproof √ (literally WATERproof)
- SMUDGE PROOF √ (Smudge proof on WATER or on dry surface of your skin)
- Affordable √
- Good for OILY EYELID
Would I recommend this EASY 2 USE JUMBO EYELINER? If you have an oily eyelid like me, I will never recommend this at all. This eyeliner melted on my lid on my first application and with one swipe, it vanished. I have read mixed reviews on this eyeliner and majority of the reviews are . BUT! If you don’t have an oily eyelid then you might want to give this a try. I washed my hand after I swatched this and it stayed on like a glue! (I will share a quick video on Instagram showing this eyeliner on my hand)
To sum it all, I still love the essence Silky Touch Blush and the All Eyes On Me Mascara. Essence Cosmetics are not tested on animals, majority of their products are made in Europe with a very high quality in a super affordable price.

Any eyeliner recommendation guys?

I have Life’s a Cherry blush and it’s great!
I need to give Essence mascara a try – seems to be well reviewed.
Oh you need to try the Essence GEL liner – that stuff is AMAZING.
