24 May The Beauty of Essence
First, let me tell you about the brand Essence Cosmetics! Essence is a german company, who stands for trendy and high quality cosmetics sold in over 60 countries at a sensational low price (between €1.49 and €4.99).
What I love the most is that they don’t conduct any testing on animals, nor commissions it to any third parties – not in Germany or anywhere else in the world. By the way: animal testing for decorative or pampering cosmetic products has not been permitted in Germany since the autumn of 1998. Germany leads the way in Europe with this legislation!
All about eyeshadow palettes
The spring/summer collection of Essence is by now in all stores and it has come with these four new palettes which contain all trend colors such as shades of nude, brown, pastel and bright colors. They all contain shimmer and no matte eyeshadow, which I think is a pity, although I like the color combinations. As you can see not all the colors are pigmented as well as others but they are good to build in intensity.
The design of the palettes is simple, made from solid and transparent plastic, that helps you to see immediately which palette and which colors you have. The format is also useful, they are small and thin, perfect for traveling.
Big bright eyes pen
Big bright eyes – the name says it all! The highlighter in a jumbo wooden pen shape with a soft texture that blends smoothly, gives your eyes an instantly wide-awake look. It can be applied on the inner corners of your eyes as well as below your brows to make your eyes appear larger.
Eyebrow stylist set
A new eyebrow powder kit comes in the standard range, available in two shade: 01 Natural Brunette Style and 02 Natural Blonde Style. This complete kit is ideal for styling your eyebrows, it contains two eyebrow powders, an applicator and three templates for perfect shape in an instant! The package is really nice and I think is great that it contains different shape templates, useful for shaping your eyebrows.
3D jewels set
Now you can even turn your nails into accessories! The nail decorations with an ultimate 3D effect are available in various designs and materials. All looks are possible, whether elegant, eye-catching or romantic. The 3D jewels can be applied on your natural nail or on top of nail polish and can be creatively combined to suit your mood. The set includes nail glue for long lasting results.

Quick & easy nail polish remover
Basically, this is a bottle with a sponge soaked in an acetone-free nail polish remover. I found this product really helpful because it’s great for on the go or when you’re in a hurry. There is no need for cotton pads and the remover won’t leak when you throw the bottle in your bag or suitcase, because the liquid is “trapped” in the sponge.
