HAUL: Essence Cosmetics @ Watsons

I was at Watsons Ngee Ann City yesterday, and was super thrilled when I saw the ESSENCE counter! I first got my hands on Essence in KL last year. See HERE for that blog entry.

Essence is known for its super affordable, dare I say CHEAP, prices! and the quality? Well Id say some are average, and some are FAB! I went umm.. a lil crazy, yesterday:



Starting with NAIL PRODUCTS:


French Manicure Guides, S$2.20 each



Essence Colour&Go QuickDrying Nailpolish, S$2.80 each





From Essence BALLERINA BACKSTAGE collection, S$3.90



Express Dry Drops, S$4.30
AMAZING! For only $4.30, this product DOES the job! I tried it and my nailpolish was dry in under a minute!





From Essence BALLERINA BACKSTAGE collection,

Eye Souffle. This works as an eye primer and I applied it on my skin and later when I tried to wipe it away, MOST of it wouldnt budge! I was pretty impressed! I think this would be fab as an eyeshadow base, for those with oily skin. But I have yet to put it to the test as an eyeshadow primer!



Essence eyeshadows, S$3.50 each
The two whitish ones are lovely with a chunk of glitter overspray! But after swatching, your top layer of glitter will be gone, leaving you with a satin finish below thats pretty for highlighting!
The purple is my absolute FAV!!! and the blue is pretty, though not as intensely pigmented as I had hoped.



Long Lasting eyeliner, S$3.30
and long lasting INDEED! It wouldnt smudge or budge when In tried to wipe it, untill I used ALOTTTTTT of pressure. For only S3.30, Id say, GO GET ONE NOW!!



I Love Extreme, Masara S$6.00
Yet to try this XXL Mascara but I think its pretty obvious i got it because In loved the packaging :p
hot pink + black = ♥






Lipstick, S$4.30 each





Lipliner, S$2.20 each
Whilst they are NOT smudgeproof, they DO glide on, effortlessly, so it doesnt tug at your delicate lips.




Lipglosses, S$3.90 – S$4.30



From Ballerina Backstage Collection



StayWithME Long Lasting Lipgloss



XXL Lipgloss



ACCESSORIES: S$6.00 each
Bought these because… well cuz
I loved how it looked! Quality wise, I honestly doubt Id put it to any use but they’re just so pretty! Probably will pass it to my sister!



ESSENCE COSMETICS is currently only available at Ngee Ann City Watsons. Hoping they bring it in to more of the Watsons stores! ♥
