A Little Essence Cosmetics Haul….


Hello, lovelies, Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

I recently popped into my local Wilko aiming to get a few Essence Cosmetics products that I’ve had my eye on for a while. I wanted the Lash Princess mascara but to be honest the Essence stand wasn’t well-stocked at all. There were a few other things I was after and couldn’t get hold of, so my shopping list/haul ended up slightly different. But alls well that ends well, as they say, this is what I did pick up.

I have been after a decent eyeshadow blending brush and smudge brush for a while, they had to be of low budget and Essence does have rather good brushes I’d seen. So that’s what I picked up. I’ve yet to use them so I will get back to you with my thoughts of them, soon. I have always known that a dark blue eyeliner is particularly flattering for the mature lady’s eye makeup so I picked up this lovely propelling pencil in the shade Cool Down, it’s a blue-grey shade, said to be long-lasting 18-hour waterproof wear, I’ll let you know how I get on with that one too! The products from my little beauty booty that I have actually used are rather good! The Banana nail file is absolutely brilliant. I don’t like a real course file for my nails and this one is perfect for me. It’s double-sided, one side (black) is to shorten the nails and the pink side is to smooth and shape. I love it! It leaves my nails so smooth and ready for all the nail treatments and polish. A right good nail file. The two glitter nail polishes are all ready for the coming Christmas season (sorry) The pretty pink glitter polish is in the shade 07 Party Princess. The glitter is very fine particles and really do sparkle and shine when on the nails, it’s gorgeous! The purple/silver glitter polish is in the shade 23 Party Time. This one has bigger glitter particles and again is very shiny when it catches the light. This one, however, is a bit of a devil to take off. I’m now looking to get myself a peel-off basecoat. I picked up the Lashes of the Day super volume mascara, and because I was thinking that I would need it, I also got myself the Essence Volume Booster lash primer. I do have a review of both these products coming up, but I can tell you that I don’t need the lash primer when I wear the lashes of the Day mascara!Β 

So, that was my little Essence/Wilko beauty haul. I’ll be back with reviews very soon. Thank you for stopping by today.
