Essence Cosmetics launched a new makeup line to be part of their makeup collection: Pure Nude. Following the popular nude makeup trend they released baked powders, liquid foundations, concealer sticks and even more recently also a baked highlighter. I purchased the Pure Nude Makeup Natural Finish Foundation in the shade 10 pure beige and the Pure Nude Concealer also in the shade pure beige. Here are my thoughts.
When it comes to the longevity the products the foundation is not long lasting at all, a gel primer however does the trick just right. It extends the wear of the Pure Nude foundation from just a couple hours to a decent 6 hour wear. I like to use the Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Pro for that. I really like and enjoy this low budget foundation. It's easy to blend and my skin looks sun kissed and golden. It also is one of the only low-budget foundations I've ever tried that matches the rest of my body perfectly. The concealer stick is not a must have in my opinion. It's an okay product, not something I will personally reach for often. I used it to conceal my dark under eye circles and highlight the highest points of my face, I also set it with a little powder after. It didn't really do the concealing job as flawlessly as suggested on the description of the packaging but as a highlighter it's an honest worker. I recommend the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage Concealer instead or the Miss Sporty Perfect Stay Liquid Concealer, they are both great low budget options.
