Essence Cosmetics Shape Your Face Contouring Palette Review & Swatches

Contouring and highlighting is trending and it certainly hasn't escaped the eye of low budget makeup brands. Essence Cosmetics released two 'Shape Your Face Contouring Palettes': 10 Ready, set, peach! and 20 Ready, set, pink!. I included this peachy palette in a massive 2016 Essence Makeup Collection haul and now that I've gotten a chance to play around with it I cannot wait to share my thoughts with you.

Dear dad, you should have showed up

Dear dad, do you remember I used to prepare a card for you at school, with a handwritten poem, for father's day? To then read it to you in the kitchen, right in front of the dishwasher, all proud and shy, in the evening after dinner? I have something different for you today.

LIFE UPDATE⎜My sobriety, making changes & what I do for a living

Life after depression is weird, I almost feel like I sobered up somehow, like an alcoholic who quit drinking. My mind is clear and the sadness that was a part of myself for so long is no longer there and it feels good, but unfamiliar. It's making me a bit anxious, I know that I am able to do great things now but I don't really know where to start. The realisation that I am worthy of living and worthy of being respected by the living around me is scary.

Essence Cosmetics Nude Velvet Matt Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Essence Cosmetics has added new lipsticks to their permanent makeup collection of 2016, and considering I'm still very much obsessed with the #ilovenude trend edition lipsticks, the nude velvet matts certainly deserved a spot in my stash. Essence released three new shades: 06 Don't stop the Nude, 07 Velvet MATT and 08 Velvet MATT. Even though nr 06 is not actually labeled velvet matt, I decided to include it anyway since it was part of Essence's new cosmetics launch. Here are my thoughts.

Essence Mousse Concealer Review & Swatches

Essence Cosmetics released new makeup products for 2016 and this Soft Touch Mousse Concealer is one of the items I featured in my recent massive Essence makeup haul. The concealer is a new addition to the Soft Mousse Makeup range and promises to hide dark under eye circles and skin irregularities. I'm not familiar with the 'mousse concealer' concept, I haven't seen it around among other low budget makeup brands and thought it was very interesting and different, let's take a look.
