5 Affordable Beauty Buys That’ll Upgrade Your Makeup Bag Instantly
News flash: You don’t need to break the bank in order to get your hands on amazing, high-quality beauty products.
Essence Cosmetics is one of those beauty brands that truly “gets it” — the brand is fun, says NO to animal testing and knows good quality makeup doesn’t have to come at a quarter of your rent!
So, we’ve hand-picked five great beauty buys that’ll give you a little winter glow and your makeup bag a lux-for-less upgrade:
1/ Soft touch mousse
We LOVE a foundation mousse! The creamy texture is hydrating but light so your skin can breathe — and it provides excellent coverage (without leaving the skin chalky).
2/ Mattifying compact powder
This powder is one of Essence Cosmetic’s most popular products — and for good reason. It’s a master at absorbing excess oil and spreads smoothly over the skin leaving you with a natural-looking, matt complexion.
3/ Matt touch blush
The matt touch blush with its soft powder texture creates a shine-free finish on your cheeks, giving your complexion a pop of colour.
4/ Ultra last instant colour lipstick
Hello, luscious lips! This lipstick range unites high-coverage and colour-dispersion, so there’s no need to keep on applying your lipstick. While the lipstick’s creamy texture has serious staying power, it’s packed with hydration so it won’t leave you with dry, cracked lips.
5/ Gel-shine nail polish
Is durable enough to withstand a CrossFit workout? Check. Comes in loads of vibrant shades? Check. Gives your tips a fantastic gel-like shine? Double-check. Worried about time? No need. You can create a salon-like manicure at home in a flash because these polishes dry super fast!
With a full range of breakthrough beauty products and the season’s hottest colours and formulas, you’ll look (and feel) great — and your skin will feel great too!
