Hey guys! So Target just recently started to carry the makeup brand Essence Beauty. This inexpensive makeup brand has prices comparable to Elf so obviously I had to pick up some items to review. I bought a foundation, 2 concealer sticks, eyebrow gel, and quick dry nail drops.
Check out my video below for a closer look at the items.
I am going to be doing a separate video/post reviewing the Matte foundation more in depth.
The Essence brand has a great variety of items that included concealers, foundations, powders and blushes for the face. For the eyes it has mascara, eyeliner, and eye shadow. Also they have a ton of nail products that I really want to try. They have a wide variety of "gel like" nail polishes in beautiful colors as well as top and base coats. I didn't see anything over $10 which is the perfect price point for me.
My favorite item that I picked up was the quick dry nail drops. These were $2.99 and dry my nails quicker then the Sally Hansen drops I normally use. The green concealer is really great because it is creamy and blends out beautifully. I like how it comes in crayon form as it is easy to put on the intended spot. The concealer crayon that I picked up also blends out beautifully and covers little imperfections. It can go a bit cakey depending on your foundation so be aware of that. Both of them also transfer easily so when I blow my nose I notice they come off onto my tissue. The eyebrow gel is a dead knockoff of the Benefit Gimme Brown for less then half the price! It works really great because unlike other eyebrow gels I use this one doesn't leave a crusty shiny gel texture to the brows. It leaves them soft but still keeps them in place. I am definitely going to repurchase this when I run out.
Let me know if you guys have tried anything from Essence Beauty and what I should pick up next. XOX Chan
