{Review} Essence Pure Nude Foundation & Concealer

Hi guys ! Happy Tuesday. 

Today I'm sharing my thoughts on 2 new Essence products with you guys that Essence sent me a while back  - since these go so perfectly together. I'm always game to try out new foundations to see how it works on my skin . For the record - I have dehydrated oily skin that tends to break out easily - and the foundation worked amazingly well on my skin. It didn't clog my pores or make my skin break out . It also didn't cling to my drier spots on my face - making it one of my favourites to reach for on casual make-up days . 

The Essence Pure Nude Foundation is a very lightweight light to medium coverage foundation . The consistency of this foundation is very liquid-y , but gives you a nice light coverage - perfect if you aren't a fan of heavy duty foundations . Even though I do prefer medium to full coverage foundations , I do like this foundation on my off days - it looks so natural and feels light and airy on your skin. I love that the foundation has a pump bottle- it makes applying liquid foundations so much easier. My favourite way to apply the foundation is with a damp beauty blender - I have used a brush too but I personally feel a beauty blender gives you a nice even coverage. 

Sick of your dirk circles under your eyes ? Well this concealer is a life saver when it comes to covering them up. This concealer blends easily - which is a bonus if you have a drier under eye area like I do thanks to the creamy slightly powdery texture of this concealer. It's also very user friendly (since it's shaped like a big crayon ) , and very travel friendly too  .

As always , Essence is also super budget friendly for such amazing products. 

The only downside though - the foundation and concealer is only available in three shades. 

The Pure Nude foundation retails for R69,95 & the Pure Nude Concealer retails for R47,95 at Clicks and Dis-Chem stores. 

Have a lovely day guys. xx

  3. I have been eyeing these when I´ve seen them in stores but I´m always scared to buy foundations/concealers cause my face has a tendency to reach badly to some products ;) I may have to test these though cause they seem to be amazing products :)

    1. My face is also very sensitive lately - I use to LOVE the Maybeline BB Cream for no-make up days but suddenly that makes my skin break out. This works perfectly.

  4. Look nice :)
