Essence Advent Calendar 2017 Day 8 - 14

Hi guys. Happy Wednesday.  Did everyone have a great Christmas ? I have been having a great time just relaxing at home with the kiddo .

I will be posting the one more advent calendar post a little later this week - but from next week all posts will be more regular again and I will be doing some great fun reviews for you guys. 2017 was a sucky year for me - so I'm optimistic that 2018 will be a much better year all round. 

So let's jump into the second week goodies from my Essence Advent Calendar. 

Essence Black Kajal Eyeliner
So fun fact - while I wear colourful eyeliner (colourful in my opinion is lavender ha ha ha ) or a nude or white - I don't wear black eyeliner at all. I'm really really trying to try more bold looks - so I'm excited to use this. I use these eyeliners for Halloween to draw any details Alex needs for his Halloween costume and it lasts amazingly well. 
Essence Dual Ended Sharpener
I love Essence sharpeners. They are some of the best and most affordable on the market. I have three now in total - as I love wearing Essence lippy sticks and their eyeliners and they need sharpening from time to time. So really happy to have another one for my handbag too. 
Essence Gift Tags
Essence really included some very cute goodies in this calendar. The set includes 10 gift tags that was perfect to pop onto gifts. 
Essence Balmy Kiss Lipbalm
I love the Balmy Kiss Lipbalms - my favourite colour to date is a light pink called Beauty on the Go! This is the Red version called treat me right. I love how these are such a light wash of colour but looks amazing on and provides great hydration. And this one smells like cherries. Yum ! I don't wear red but I can totally see myself reaching for this one. 
 Essence Eyebrow Tweezers
I mean how cute is the design on these ? And a pair of tweezers are always welcome. 
Essence Brown Eyebrow Pencil
Before I started using Benefit Eyebrow products - I was totally in love with these eyebrow pencils from Essence. And I still am. My hair is a lot darker now so I'm really excited to start using these again. I find them super easy to use and although they don't come with a spooly brush - I really love the formula and lasting power on these pencils. 
Essence Festive Nail Stickers
Can I say YES !!! How cute are these ? If you follow me on Instagram you might have seem quite a few designs the last four weeks where I used different Essence nail stickers - so these are always welcome in my collection. They sparkle up any nail design very easily and is perfect for those who struggle with nail art but want cute nails. 

I'm also doing a December Photo a Day challenge as well as the last 4 weeks of the 52WeeksNailChallenge over on my social media  - so if you want to take a look what I'm doing there. I'll be posting the last part of my calendar goodies on Friday so keep an eye out for that post.
