Essence Cosmetics UK – Beauty Blogger Events 2014

Essence  Cosmetics UK

I recently attended the Beauty Bloggers Event for the Essence Cosmetics UK launch. If you want to read about other events I have attended you can find them here. Essence wasn’t a brand I had tried before but it is very popular across Europe so I recognised some of the products. As soon as you see the Essence cosmetics UK stand you immediately think of colour. There were so many colours and it’s a really fun brand, great for nail polish shades.

At the Beauty Blogger Event there were tables with different products for us to try out and sample and then we leant a little bit about the brand. Essence Cosmetics UK launch means that you can now find this brand in Wilkos (although online I cannot find them anywhere other than Ebay). The company produce 95% of their stock here in Europe and deson’t use animal testing.

Essence are bright, colourful and stay on trend with new products changing yearly, but maybe the most surprising aspect of Essence is the cost. Until being told I would never have guessed that Essence was a budget brand, their quality is fantastic and rivals other high street cosmetics but at a much lower cost. Their items range from 99p to £3.99!

There were also nail artists (pamper puff girls) who did our nails with the Essence polishes, you can see from the pictures our vast colour range of choice. They also have an amazing range of nail art tools, nail polish effects, stickers, transfers, magnetic top coat nail polishes and accessories, home gel nails and cuticle oils. I chose mint green nails, a very popular shade at the Beauty Bloggers event, with a party sprinkles type polish gradient on one nail.

Excluding their huge nail varnish options Essence stock an incredible range of products, nail supplies, brushes and other tools. They have foundations in both liquid and mousse, bb cream, bronzer, blushes, concealers and different ranges of powders and fixing powders. There were eyebrow pencils and powders, liquid, gel and pencil eyeliners and a wide range of mascaras. There were so many shades of lipstick, lipgloss, lip balm, eyeshadow sets, false eyelashes and nails. The only product I didn’t actually see out that I could think of was a primer!

Essence were very generous and let us take lots of samples from their Essence cosmetics UK stand. I took advantage of this and have so many Essence products to try out, review and share with you all (I now have no excuse for a lack of any nail art posts!). For the price vs. quality this is my new favourite brand and I will definitely keep my eyes peeled when I’m near a Wilkos.

    We’ve had Essence here in Ireland for years, and it’s amazing! The nail polishes in particular are fantastic. Some of the eyeshadows are a little hit and miss but overall they’re great, and I love their gel eyeliner.
