According to their website, they are small team dedicated to bringing affordable, fun and high quality products into the serious world of cosmetics.
Essence was started by Christina who wanted to make a different cosmetics brand with good quality and excellent price.
It was first launched in Germany and then distributed to other countries like U.S, North America etc. They won the Allure best in Beauty Awards.
Some of the products are hit and some of their are miss.

I like their eyeshadow collection too but they are all shimmers and we have to use some other matt for creating eye look so their palettes are not enough for travelling but they are highly pigmented and easy to blend.

Their concealers are not so great but one concealer which is not at stores now in Canada is one of my favourites is Match to Cover cream concealer. It blends well and give good coverage.
The mosaic compact which I have shown in the picture is good enough to give bronzer affect on my cheeks but not for setting the foundation.
In Canada very limited products are available like we have no makeup brushes available and no foundations. If we want to purchase from website it will be too expensive with shipping.

Their liquid lipsticks are one of my favourites. They have very nice shades but i am not a fan of metallic lipsticks so i have only one which is in pink. I like the matt collection also. The shades are really good.

Their Gel eyeliners in pot is one of my favorite but the eyeliner pen is not good it dries up quickly. I was barely to use it 3 times so i think its waste of money. Their eyeliner pencils are really good.
Their nail polishes are so good i like all the shades specially gel polishes. The nail kits are amazing.
So overall i love the brand.

Let It Snow

This is a month of snow. In Canada, winter has started and now it is snowing.
I like the month of December because it is Holiday season and Christmas and new year is celebrating around the world.
In the month of December everybody tries to stay warm sitting by the fireplace and celebrate Christmas.
But in this month malls are full of people because of the holiday and Christmas
Canadian winter can be quite harsh because of the snow the roads becomes slippery. But the conditions of roads is bad lots of roads have potholes and slippery roads do cause accidents if the drivers are not cautious.
Overall I love snow because this month is holiday and holiday day is family time so stay warm and enjoy coffee and hot chocolate with family
With love
XOXO

Influenster Viva La Juicy Couture

20171121_155916_1( I received this VoxBox for free for reviewing and this picture is taken by me)

I received this VoxBox from Influenster for reviewing the perfume. The fragrance is inspired by “the glamorous girl who is always the life of the party”. Fragrance means sweet and pleasant smell or scent from fresh flowers, pine trees and extracts from earth.

This fragrance makes me feel as if I am in a Victoria’s Secret store because the smell is similar to what I smell when in that store. The scent is of wild berries, honeysuckle and creamy caramel. The fragrance remains all day long and that’s what I like about it and smells very fresh.

I got three samples of 1.5ml each and its full bottle is 100 ml for $110. I got it free of cost from Influenster to review but the opinions are my own. I would definitely buy this perfume in the future.

With love

XoXo.

Cover girl new foundation and liquid lipstick

DSC_1130_ppphoto credit: Jay photography (Jawad Ukani). The product I got from Influenster Canada for free to review

Today I am going to share a new foundation and lipstick. The foundation called Vital Elixir foundation by Cover Girl. It is infused with vitamin E, B3, B5 plus SPF 20 for correction, protection and perfection.

It is very hydrating, beautiful and buildable coverage that glides smoothly and gives a flawless look. it comes in multiple shades from light to deep.

You can apply it with sponge or brush, dab a small amount and apply. it gives a nice and smooth finish for a whole day.

The foundation and lipstick was sent to me to review by Influenster Canada for free.

The lipstick is called cover girl melting pout liquid lipstick in shade 105-Gel ful. The shade look beautiful after application. the color is very saturated and is light weight with a satin finish. Its a gel based formula to give a smooth finish which I prefer because my lips are so dry. So I think its really worth the money and I really recommended to those who love makeup within budget.

BEAUTY TIPS

Making Medium Coverage Into Full Coverage Foundation

Urban Decay the velvetizer Translucent Mix- in Medium

ud

They suggests that you mix liquid foundation with loose powder to make full coverage foundation.

I thought of trying this technique with the foundation and powder I have to see if could work with any foundation and powder, and it did.
The method to do this is:-

Mix two drops of liquid mix with little powder. Mix it well and smooth like one. Apply it on your face with sponge or brush.
I tried this method and applied it and was out the whole day and most of the time under the sun.
When i came back home in the evening, the foundation was intact and my experiment was a success.
