Frugal Friday - Essence Cosmetics* - Review

TGIF Beauties!

Today I bring you some goodies that I received from Essence Cosmetics.  Essence Cosmetics features on trend high quality makeup at affordable prices.

I've heard about this brand and saw them sold at Ulta but I never tried them until now and spoiler alert...wow!  These are amazing products at insanely low prices.

The products I received are from 2014 Fall/Winter Collection.

Silky Touch Blush in Autmun Peach - $2.99
This blush is super pigmented and blends easily.  It lasts all day on my cheeks.

Gel Eye Pencil Waterproof - $2.99
I received the brown and the teal shades.  Like a gel liner in a tub, these are smooth and apply easily.  I love that these are twist-up pencils so you'll never need a sharpener.  Also, these don't budge once applied on the eye.  They last all day and don't smudge at all.  They are also an Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner!

Eye Shadow Palettes - $4.99
Both of the below palettes are amazing quality!  Each palette contains 6 shadows that are soft, easy to blend, and pigmented.  There are no matte shadows in either palette, all the shadows are shimmery.

All About Nude Palette
The All About Nude Palette features creams, pinks, beige, taupe, and brown shades.  Pretty much the exact colors us ladies love for a nice neutral look.

All About Paradise Palette - $4.99
The All About Paradise Palette features bright bold colors!  I love the blue, pink, and green shades.  You can create a gorgeous look using some of the fun colors in this palette with some neutral shades from the All About Nude Palette.

Long Lasting Lipsticks - $2.99
These lipsticks are are soft and creamy and glide easily on the lips.  Each lipstick has the Essence logo,  "e" etched into it.  They last a good amount of time on me, several hours without eating or drinks.  There are 10 shades to chose from.  I received the shades Nude Love, Natural Beauty, Barely There, and Wear Berries.  Barely There is definitely my favorite because it's kind of a mauve on me which is my go-to lipstick color.

If you've never tried Essence Cosmetics, you should definitely pick up a few items on your next trip to Ulta!  You truly can't beat these prices.  I recommend that you try a lipstick, the teal waterproof liner, and one of the shadow palettes. 

Have you tried anything from Essence Cosmetics?
