Essence Cosmetics
Everything here ranges from 0.99 to $4.99!

Founded in 2001, Essence Cosmetics has an extensive color range priced under $5! And they don’t test on animals. Investment pieces at impulse prices, it’s a great line for anyone looking to add some color into their makeup bag and experiment with on-trend products ranging from nails (complete with a nail art range), eyes, lips, cheeks and beyond. Which is why I’m so excited to be hosting this tweet-up and have the opportunity to answer your questions and talk makeup and music with all of you!

{Peek the line!}

Essence Cosmetics

At the moment their eye shadow palette, Sun Club Glamour-To-Go Eyeshadow in South Beach 01 ($4.49) is my favorite. It’s a creamy powder, silky texture that goes on so smooth, and blends easily. I love the entire color range of these shadows used (which is rare — usually I only use a few up completely and the rest go untouched).

Essence Cosmetics

They have an extensive nail art range. While I loved the concept, I found the Nail Art Stampy Set ($3.99) designs process a little challenging, the Nail Art Decoration Kit ($3.49) sequence was fun to add on to add to my nail look and the stylist tool very handy for making patterns. Also if you’re good with doing nail art with reinforcements, you’ll love the French Manicure Tip Guides ($0.99). The special effect topper glitter top coat is great to smooth out any nail perfections and give a polished finish. The Color & Go Nail Polish ($0.99) blue made a great base (with or without the glitter topper — see below the difference). It’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, and emollient phthalate and comes with a wide brush for easy application. The only thing to be careful of is dispensing too much product at once so wipe on the edge. It didn’t dry quick for me but offered a smooth application and great shine.


They have a wide range of lip products from lip balms ($1.99), frosted to shimmer lipsticks ($1.49), high shine ($2.49)  and long-lasting lip glosses ($1.49).
