Essence | Strobing Highlighter

Hi hi hi!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a bit. After what had happened in Manchester, I kind of stayed off social media. I did post a picture on Instagram, but to be honest, it didn’t feel right doing so. Anyhow, I hope you guys are doing well! Before we get into the rest of the review, I just wanted to take a minute and just ask that you put some positive energy back into the world and today, you be the type of person you needed in your life during your darkest time.

Alrighty, so today’s post is all on Essence’s Strobing Highlighter. I saw this pop up on their website as a new product, and decided I had to pick it up. Now to be honest, I didn’t really know what strobing is, but according to the Huffington Post it’s illuminating your complexion using different highlighters.

Since I brought up Essence Cosmetics, I obviously had to post about them right? This particular lip product kind of seems like an oxymoron to me. When I think about a lipstick I think of opaque colors with a comfortable formula. So what is this?Candy Love - 1

[UNDERRATED BRANDS] Essence Cosmetics

So I wanted to start a little series talking about some underrated makeup brands that are out there. The first brand is Essence Cosmetics. From what I know, this brand is only available in Ulta and if you want to talk about affordable, these things are affordable. At the Ulta I shop at, they only have a small end-cap dedicated to this brand and it’s easy to overlook because it looks like “play” makeup. The signage is colorful and fun looking and even some of the products remind me of things from the LipSmacker line (not that there’s anything wrong with that).  Continue reading “[UNDERRATED BRANDS] Essence Cosmetics”

[REVIEW] Essence – Metal Glam – Frosted Apple (03)

Although Essence isn’t easily found in the drug store, it is an affordable brand and it’s available on the drugstore side of Ulta. I actually ended up picking up four of these, and I decided to do reviews on the more “everyday” colors first, and this is the first of it.
