Hey Beautiful Dolls! Summer has come to an end and School and Colleges are back in session! Even though buying school supplies can be fun, or dropping $200.00 on a book can be stressful but we also need to buy some new makeup for the new school season. Well if you are a beauty on a budget Essence Cosmetics is really a great company to try out. Their products are REALLY! Affordable, great performing, they have their permanent collection but they come out with collections that are always on point with current trends. Their Motto is for us Dolls is to have "easy access to great beauty products that inspire you to express who you are with style, confidence and fun!"
You can start up your makeup collection with this brand and get all the essentials that you would need in your makeup routine with $20 and if you get them on sale at Ulta, select Walgreens, Fred Meyers you can purchase the products even CHEAPER! Who can really BEAT THAT!?!?
Well for my back to school on a dime makeup bag with Essence I wanted to show you all the amazing products that will be helping me get through my long College days!
Gel Eye Pencil *Waterproof* $2.99: Gun Metal and Coca Bean
" Gel Eye Pencil is in a pen-shape instead of in a tub. The soft, waterproof and long-lasting texture of the gel eye pencil waterproof comes in a retractable pen. Velvety and highly-pigmented, these pens offer intensive eyeliner styles."
These are basically gel liners in a pen, it's not exactly like the Benefit Their Real push up liner it's really more like if you use a an angle brush and used a very tiny amount of gel liner and applied to your eyes. Best way I can explain it. They are long wearing when you apply them to your water line, lash line, and tight line. The product doesn't have a waxy consistency glides on smoother than butter, and did I say Long wearing? LOL! Perfect for 8 hours at School or a College class. Also you don't have to sharpen so that's another huge plus!!
Eyeliner Pen Waterproof $2.99:
The formula dries a little bit slower than I would prefer, but once the product is set it doesn't budge or move. If you need a " Wing For Dummies" book like me then this eyeliner will help you create a precise winged look, as well as lining your eyes with precision and accuracy.
I LOVE PUNK Jumbo Eyeliner Pen $2.99:
If you have a hard time to with smaller eyeliners, or if you are a newbie when it comes to the art of applying makeup this eyeliner pen is really easy to practice lining your eyes with, or if you love bolder thicker eye looks this pen would work wonders for you. It is not waterproof but it does have a great staying powder.
All About The Nudes Palette $4.99:
These colors are on point for the latest fall trends, they are pigmented but you will still need to use a great base/primer to bring up the color intensity. Very easy to work with, so you can build up the colors and blend out beautifully.
3D Eyeshadow in #8 Irresistible Vanilla Latte $3.49
Really pigmented and shimmery! I love these little duos that add a nice pop shimmer and metallic to your eyes. These are amazing to use when you are in a time crunch or running late to class.
Get Big Lashes Volume and Curl Mascara $3.99
I love the big half moon bristles and wand which makes it really easy to get to the base of your lashes and wiggle them up to get more fuller and voluminous lashes. While holding your curl nicely!
All About Matte Blotting Papers $2.49:
Need a quick touch up in between classes? These blotting papers will absorb your facial oils
Long Lasting Lipsticks $2.99
These are super moisturizing on the lips, they last about 2-3 hours with talking, drinking and eating non greasy foods. They glide onto your lips, and have a satin finish to them. I love these they are so light weight on the lips you forget your wearing them.
Well Dolls that's it for my new makeup for back to school, these products do not dissappoint and for the amount that you pay for each item, you feel like your stealing it. They are too good to be this inexpensive! Well I can't complain about it either so it's a win win for all of us!
