5 Of The Best Essence Cosmetics Products

So if you’ve been reading Makeup Tips for a while you probably know about my long lasting love for Essence Cosmetics. The European beauty brand is filled with hundreds of great products at super affordable prices, some of which are staples in my daily makeup bag. Trying to choose just one of my favourite products, never-lone just five of them is like picking a favourite child, but after much consideration here are five of my favourite Essence products that you MUST try. 

Essence Eyebrow Stylist Kit

This is one of my all-time favourite eyebrow products and beats out so many high-end brands. I tried this on a whim and don’t regret it one bit, the colours are cool-toned (no need to worry about orange brows!) and the powders have just the right amount of pigment so you don’t overdo it. This is a staple in my makeup bag and for the price you simply cannot go wrong.

e.l.f Baked Bronzer in St. Lucia: I like this product but I don’t think I would repurchase it.  Its not really that pigmented so I don’t use it as a bronzer.  I use it for more of a face powder when I just need a little color.  It has a little bit of a shimmer but not an overwhelming amount.  At only $3 its not a terrible product but I’ve heard much better things about their normal bronzers.
