I’ve heard a lot of good things about Essence Cosmetics and I finally decided to pick up a few things. The first thing I grabbed was the Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in 01 be my highlight. The second product I picked up was the Essence Make Me Brow. I’m really impressed with the quality of the Essence products and I’m really looking forward to try out more of their products.
The Essence Pure Nude Highlighter in 01 be my highlight is almost an exact dupe for the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Highlight 01. This is a great product that is really finely milled and looks really pretty with a natural makeup look. Just looking at a swatch of this product you won’t be blown away until you actually apply it to your face.
The Essence Make Me Brow is also a really good dupe for the Benefit Gimme Brow. It has a really small wand that allows you to get the brow gel precisely in the areas of your brow you want without getting any on the skin around your brow. The large wand is a major flaw of my favourite brow gel, the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Plumper so I’m hoping the Essence Make Me Brow will become my new favourite.
The packaging on these products isn’t the greatest but it is really sleek and simple and I don’t think the highlighter pan will break easily which is good when you’re clumsy and drop things all the time.
