A Winter Wonderland With Essence

Essence are absolutely killing it right now and their products have fast become some of my favourite high street products, they are super affordable and incredible quality. I recently received some winter wonderland themed products and couldn't wait to share them with you.

Nails

If you're a long time reader of my blog, you'll know how much of a nail geek I am, I love anything to do with nails and these products are fabulous.

Essence Rock In A Bottle Loose Glitter - £2.00

The Rock In A Bottle in the shade Rock is a loose glitter that you apply over nail polish, either covering the whole nail or in an area you wish to use it, once applied you tap it down with your finger, let the nail polish dry and then use a top coat to seal. Any left over glitter can be popped back in the bottle for the next time you use it, it gives such an amazing finish to the nails and looks amazing, I like to use it as an accent nail or add a little to the tips or bottom of the nails, either way it looks lovely and I receive lots of compliments.

I have the shade Mirror Mirror On The Nail in the Metal Shock Nail Powder, it is a gold/silver shade and looks amazing! It is so easy to use too, you simply apply a clear nail polish or top coat, then I find it easiest to use one of those sponge applicators that come with some eyeshadow palettes, I save them for creating ombre nails but they work brilliantly for nail powders too. Using the sponge, dip it in the powder and rub on the nail until smooth, then apply a top coat, you can apply over any nail polish too. You are left with a stunning mirrored effect that looks amazing.

The Metal Art Lip & Eye Liner in the shade Steel The Show is a stunning metallic charcoal grey with sparkle and can be used on the eyes and lips, it is a lovely product that is easy to use. It comes with a thin applicator and is easy to line and fill in the lips or create a killer feline flick on the eyes and looks amazing.

Essence Metal Shock Eyeshadow - £3.50

I love the Metal Shock eyeshadows, this is the shade Moon Dust and is a lovely vibrant silver shade, it is metallic but has some tiny sparkly particles too and looks so pretty on the eye. The Metal Shock eyeshadows are easy to apply and can be applied straight from the applicator wand or you can use a brush, or apply with the wand and then blend out the edges with a brush which is what I find best.  I really like the formula of these and have another shade stars and stories which is a rose gold shade, they last really well and I don't find they crease, I do always use an eye primer before applying my make up though so can't comment on how they wear without one.

Essence Moonlight Cream Eyeshadow - £3.00

The Moonlight cream eyeshadow in the shade Angel is such a pretty eyeshadow. I already have this shade in my collection so I have passed this on to a family member because it is so lovely and looks stunning on the eye. It is lovely as an inner corner highlight or all over the lid or to add some iridescence in the centre of the lid, it is very pretty and has a pinky tone to it in some lights.

As always, Essence have really pulled it out of the bag with these Winter Wonderland themed products and the best thing is,  they are all priced under £4.00. And not only are they all under £4.00, they all perform just as well as products in my collection with a much higher price tag. Essence really are an amazing brand, their products are outstanding and very affordable and if you haven't tried them yet, I can't recommend that you do, enough, you won't be disappointed.

If you would like to try Essence, their products are sold on the Wilko website and in Wilko stores too.
