Hi guys ! Happy Wednesday - how has your week been so far ? Mine has been pretty good so far .
Essence did a whole new range update in April - new lipglosses , eyeshadows , mascaras - single eyeshadows , nail polishes , nail treatments , palettes - you name it they have it. While it was extremely tempting to grab everything to try out - I tried to be modest with my picks and only got a few of the new products to try out. Now keep in mind I will most likely be picking up some more goodies in the next few months and review them here too.
As I mentioned in my April Favourites post - these Growth boosting drops came into my life at the right time. My nails are extremely dry and weak after a hectic strong dose of cortisone to get better in March - and my nails ended up looking horrible. So far this impressed me and I use it daily by massaging into my cuticles and nails . This is a thin serum-y type balm It's also pretty affordable too .
Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss in Smile , Sparkle , Shine - R44,95 I love all Essence lipglosses - and they make amazing light coloured pigmented lipglosses. This one is no exception. This is a gorgeous prismatic milky pink colour - it has a gorgeous blue toned shift that makes your teeth look whiter and your lips fuller. This colour is just amazing. The lipglosses are really moisturising - so not only will hey make your lips look gorgeous - they will keep them soft , hydrated and kissable too.
Essence My Must Haves Palette
Essence also bought out to make it yourself palettes (the 4 pan size one like I have and a 8 pan one too) . As I only decided I would pick four eyeshadow colours this round - I decided to go with the 4 pan palette. It does click close properly - and is quite sturdy. The eyeshadows / blushes / lip products / powders / highlighters / bronzer does click in and out pretty easily - so you can swop around your collection as much as you like.

Essence My Must Have Longlasting Eyeshadows
They have a HUGE range of colours - these are just the four colours I picked. These were also featured in my April favourites and for good reason - the shadows are pigmented and buttery and on my eyes (with an eyeshadow primer) last the whole day. I picked 4 colours - two brown colours and 2 pinky colours. I will share swatches of all four of the ones I got.
Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss in Bright On -R44,95
Again - Essence lipglosses are always a winner. This is a gorgeous nude lipgloss (no surprise there) that's part of the Prismatic range - these also has a colour swift . Again this lipgloss is really hydrating and pigmented - so if your looking for a comfortable glossy pout I would highly recommend them. The range also includes bright colours as well as normal colours too - but the prisma range has really caught my eye the most.
Essence Colour Correcting Concealer - Pastel Pink Wake Up Effect - R54,95
I have to admit - in store when I was checking out the display I swatched these with a bit of a meh ... let's just see how they look attitude - but boy or boy this colour really surprised me. When I use this underneath my eyes I look bright and awake - and got a few compliments about how bright and airy I look. I use this underneath my eyes and then set with a translucent powder - and it really does brighten up your complexion. I would really recommend this if you are looking for a concealer to brighten up your complexion - I doubt these will cover dark under eye circles .
Have you guys picked up anything from the new range updates ? Which product do you think you might be most interested in ?
