Essence Cosmetics Review!! Nail Polish & Mascara

Hello lovelies!! I had just popped into the drugstore the other day when I stumbled upon a large makeup display from a brand I had never heard of : Essence. All the products were at very low prices, so I decided to pick a few up. After a little research I discovered that Essence is a sub-brand from the German brand Cosnova. The Essence products have been available in Canada since February (so I'm late on this, oops!!). I will be reviewing one of their mascaras and one of their nail polishes for you :)

I really enjoyed their nail polish. They have a nice selection of colors, including brights, subtles, glitters and more. I chose a pale blue that reminds me of the "Tiffany & Co. Blue" since I didn't already have one in my collection. 

Essence Color & Go quick drying nail polish in "You Belong To Me"

I had to apply three coats of this polish to get the opacity I desired but the nail polish is quick drying so it wasn't a problem. This polish lasted a good four days without chipping. I applied one coat of Essie's "Good to Go quick drying top coat" once the blue had dried.
They had a good selection of mascaras to choose from, each one having different effects. I chose their "All Eyes on Me Multi Effect Mascara". This product was only $2.49 (CAN).  I have used the mascara a few times now and I enjoy it. It lengthens and separates my lashes without clumping. It was easily washed away with water. Overall, this mascara was decent, not super extraordinary but for such a low price it is a great staple to have!!

I applied two coats of the mascara on my left eye and nothing on my right eye.

Check out their website here. It's pretty awesome! They have a complete list of their products, beauty news, styling cards, videos, and even have a photo modifying application called "Pimp Your Picture!"  What do you think of my new look? ;)  


In brief I would reccomend this brand to ladies who are on a budget or ladies who just want to try something new without breaking the bank!! The company also does not test on animals :) Other than nail polish and mascara, the Essence brand carries lipsticks, lip glosses, eyeshadows, powders, etc etc!!

Have you tried Essence products yet?

Thank you for reading!! xo
