After hearing so many positive reviews about Essence Cosmetics, I'm so thrilled to know that has finally arrived in NZ. I came across their products at Price Wise but the SA told me that Essence products are going to be available at Farmers soon.
I wasn't expecting to run into Essence stands that day. I didn't have anything in mind about what I wanted to get. I just randomly picked a few things that caught my eyes. Just before went to the cashier, I remembered MissTango2 mentioned about how much she loves the Longlasting Lipglosses. So I picked those up, too.

and here's what I bought.....

get BIG! lashes Volume Boost Waterproof Mascara: They have a good variety of mascaras. I always use waterproof & I wanted to find something as good as Maybelline The Falsies. It was my pick for mascara.

Stay With Me Longlasting Lipgloss: If I'm not wrong, they have 6 shades available. The shades I have are (top t- bottom) Candy Bar - a bright coral red, Me & My Ice Cream - a pale peachy pink, and Pretty Witty - a medium fuchsia. 

Make-up Sponge: Yes! A Beauty Blender look-a-like. I've never tried a Beauty Blender so I won't be doing a comparison of the 2. I usually use a Sigma F80 for my foundation. I'll see if this sponge will give me any better results than the Sigma brush.

Liquid Ink Waterproof Eyeliner: I never have much luck when it comes to liquid eyeliners. I always go back to my good old MAC Fluidline. I picked this liner because it's only N$5. It has a very small & precise brush which I like.

Souffle Touch Blush: This blush has a mousse texture. I've got it in the shade called Cold Wildberry. It's a mid-tone pink with a hint of blue & purple. It has a baby soap/lotion scent which is not a bad thing. But if you're sensitive to strong scents, you might want to stay away from this blush. 

Match2Cover! Cream Concealer: The packaging caught my eyes. It looks similar to Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit. Essence Creamy Concealer has 2 shades of concealer which you can mix to match your skin tone.

 That's it for another post of P-Haul series. Please wait for more in-depth reviews on these goodies.

Be Peachy. Be Glamorous. Be You.
