Essence Haul

Hello Everyone!
  So today I'm going to be sharing what I recently picked up from the brand Essence.
  So I pick up most of my Essence bits from Wilkinsons as that's where they stock the brand but otherwise I'm not too sure where else actually sells it. I mainly go for Essence when I'm wanting to treat myself to a few new bits but don't want to spend too many because Essence is quite a cheap brand which is always nice but the products are such good quality which is what I like. As Autumn is here now I wanted to pick up a few new lip colours and I saw a few other bits which I thought I would try out- I'm thinking of doing a full face of Essence and give my thoughts which I'm still thinking of doing in the future I just need to find the right products for me before I do it.
  So the first two products I decided to try out was the luminizer palette which only cost me around three pounds which is so inexpensive but the highlighters are so pigmented and I love the fact you get three different shades to use on different parts of your face which is good. I then decided to pick up one of their satin touch blushes in the shade 30 Satin Bronze which was only one pound which is so cheap but the pigmentation is so good I can't believe it. I decided on a more brown toned blush as I don't seem to like pink blush on myself and much prefer a nice bronzed look so I know I'll definitely use this around this time of the year so I can't wait to get using this and I'll definitely be adding these into my everyday makeup bag.
  So the next product I decided to try out was the rock 'n' doll mascara in black which if I'm honest I'm not a fan of buying new mascara as I don't see a difference in my lashes as they are quite thick and long without any product on them but I decided to give this a go. This cost me around three pound or less which for me is a cheap mascara but when I applied this to my lashes I did like the result as I felt it did add volume to my lashes and it's definitely black as it made my lashes very dark which I like but I also love the pink and black packaging. I will definitely pick up some more.
  The next two products I decided to pick up was from the matte lipstick range but I just thought these lipstick shades would be perfect for Autumn/Winter so I knew I would definitely get my wear out of these. I'm sure these were around two pound for each lipstick which again is so inexpensive but I do love Essence lipsticks and I have quite a few in my collection now. The first one on the left is in the shade 01 Natural Kiss which is a more natural brown nude shade which is perfect for every day use so I know I will definitely wear this to work for the days where I don't want too much make-up on. The next shade I picked up was 02 Perfect Match which is more of a darker brown shade but I love shades like this for Autumn so I know this will be my go-to lipstick for this Autumn and I'm so excited to start wearing this with a nice bronzed eye as I think it will be the perfect combination.
  The last two products I picked up was the matte longlasting lipglosses which are new to Essence so I decided to try two of their shades but I know I will definitely be going back to get more of the shades. So the first one I picked up on the left was in the shade 02 Beauty which is a very dark brown but when applied onto my lips I feel like it suits my light pale skin quite nicely so I'm really happy with that shade. I then decided to go for a more natural shade so I decided to pick up 01 La Vie Est Belle which is a more baby pink but this is definitely not something I would pick up but I really love this shade and I'm trying my best to think of when I can wear this shade next- These are lovely.
Have you bought anything from Essence?
