In case you hadn’t noticed from my Instagram, I am a sucker for essence. The brand continues to stand for trendy, unique and high-quality cosmetics – all at affordable prices!
For the last few weeks, we have been waving farewell to some of their products, in order to make way for their shiny new Spring range. I always struggle to choose which products I want the most, from their launches, but thought that I would try and sum it up in a simple 5 must-have list. Don’t worry, there’ll probably be a part 2!
Nude and pastel are still the biggest trends of the coming season – but shades like grey and brown will also be flattering beauties from now on. You can expect lots of gems like multifunctional mascaras, soft and hybrid lipsticks, foundations with a natural finish as well as the latest it-nail polishes – including trendy nuances.
Liquid Lipstick 2-in-1
The innovative formula of the liquid lipstick unites the best of two lip pros by combining the coverage of a lipstick with the shine of a gloss. Six colours including rosewood, apricot-pink and trendy brown turn this lipstick into a true it-piece! The packaging also underlines its duocharacteristics: the cool packaging of the lipsgloss with a practical applicator has the appearance of a lipstick. – R47.95
