FOTD Apr 5/12 and review of Essence makeup

As promised in my Essence haul post, I did a FOTD with my new goodies! So far I'm really loving all the new stuff I got and I really just want to go get more!! The shadows applied like a dream - very pigmented and easy to blend, and the colours in the quad just go perfectly together and make it so easy to create a look. I can also see this palette being easy to take from day to night - more of the lighter shades for day, more dark shades for night. Taupe smokey eyes are HAWT!

Here's the look I created using my new products.

  • Essence Quattro Eyeshadow Palette in Over the Taupe
  • Essence Gel Eyeliner in London Baby
  • CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Waterproof in Blackest Black
  • Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil
  •  Essence Silky Touch Blush in Babydoll
  • Essence Lipstick in Coralize Me!
The blush has a nice amount of pigmentation - it never gets too dark or bright so it's perfect for a day look, it's really hard to go overboard on this one. The lipstick has a similar pigmentation, and it's very moisturizing on the lips. It seems to have pretty good lasting power too, considering it's fairly sheer and not drying. I'm loving all these products and I wanna hit up that Essence display again ASAP!


    1. Awe, you look gorgeous!! I especially like the blush - it looks incredibly natural!!

    2. Thank you both!! I'm trying to be a good girl and not run back to the store to buy more of this stuff.... we'll see how long that lasts! LOL
