Essence Spring Summer 2017 Face of the Day

Hello! Welcome back to Essence week on the blog. Today I have a Face of the Day using some of the Spring Summer 2017 collection! The new collection has a lot of great items (at a great price) which makes the products totally accessible!

1. Eyes


First up we have the products I used on the eyes. First up is the 2 in 1 Eyeshadow & Primer ($5.49 CAD). There are two colours in the collection, 01 Nude Beige (which is what I used) and 02 Nude Rose. This eye primer was super creamy and evened out my dark lids!

Next I went in with the Shape & Shadows Eye Contouring Palette ($9.99). Marilyn Metallic went on the lids, Audrey Highbrow in the crease and Bridgette Brown in the outer corner. Pigmentation was so-so on these.

I used The Glow Must Go On Bronzing and Highlighting Palette ($9.99) for the Honey Glow Highlighter shade for under my brow. It is SO PRETTY! A gorgeous highlight indeed.

Continuing the on the brow train, I used the Make Me Brow Duo Eyeshadow Powder ($4.49) in 02 Mix it Brunette. I only used the darker shade as the left side was just too light for my brows.

Finally for the my eyeliner I used the Rock ‘N Doll Duo Stylist Eyeliner ($3.99). This was interesting as the tip is actually a round ball. Definitely the first time I’ve seen anything like this. I actually really like this eyeliner. I find the ball actually helps get really close to the lash line. It’s a bit trickier to do a wing, but it can be done! The formula was very long wearing and was a black-black colour (which I like).



Along with the the Honey Glow Highligher mentioned above, I also used a new blush and contour from Essence for the look.

For blush I used the Satin Touch Blush ($3.99) in Satin Love. It was a pretty colour, but pigmentation needed a bit of layering to make it show.

I used the Shape Your Face Contouring Palette ($6.99) in Ready, Set, Pink! for only the contour. The shade is so-so. It’s quite warm, so I think it could be used maybe as more of a bronzer for some people.

Here’s a shot of my brow, eye and cheek highlight using the Essence products:




Finally we have one of the Matt Matt Matt lipsticks ($4.49) in 07 Purple Power for my lips. You can see full swatches  of all the shades on my last post here.
