Ngee Ann City
It’s CRAZY! I just shopping around in Watson’s at Ngee Ann City today after visiting my dentist and I spotted this German Brand of cosmetics that is unbelievably affordable. Every single product in the counter sells less than S$10 !
When I saw that the black pencil eyeliner was priced at $2.20, I thought it was some cheap, lower-end cosmetics like silkygirl cosmetics. But no, I was wrong! I tested the eyeliner and did a light swatch on the back of my hand and I was so amazed at how high pigmented the eyeliner is! It glides smoothly and gently on my skin and the pigments adhere pretty well to the skin. Well, I thought, there must be other goodies from this comestic line!
Other goodies : Nail polishes, French manicure set and accessories, Eyeshadows, lipsticks, lip glosses, make-up brushes, mascaras, concealer, foundation, blusher, bronzer…well, pretty much everything !
|Essence’s Matt Bronzing Powder
For Blondes : Lighter Skin
S $ 7.60
This bronzing powder has a matt finish and that’s what I need as I don’t really want my skin to appear too shiny or glittery. Besides, a natural matt-finished look is in for this season. They have both matt and shimmering bronzing powder for two different skin tones : Brunettes ( dark-skin tone) or blondes (light-skin tone).
Stunning prices, isn’t it? Based on the testimonials of other essence’s product users on YouTube, the make-up brand is comparable to Wet N Wild and L.A Girl cosmetics.
Essence’s Smoky Eye Set
Duo Eyeshadow Palette
Shimmering light grey and Matt deep grey.
|Eyeshadow Applicator and brush.
I choose the smokey eye set that has a darker grey undertones instead of the colour black which could appear too harsh against my skin tone. There’s also a deep brown smokey eye palette available at the counter. According to the instructions given, the brush is used as a eyeliner brush to line the eyes while the sponge is used to smudge out the dark eyeshadow. I was pleasantly surprised by how soft the brush applicator is thought it might look pretty stiff on camera.
|Essence : Forget It – 3 in 1 Concealer
This is an interesting product that make use of colours to neutralise redness or lighten blemishes to fully conceal the imperfections on the skin. The texture is slightly creamy so I advise that one should use it sparingly as creamy-textured products can easily clogged pores.
Essence Long Lasting Eye
Essence Metallic Eye Pen
Essence Kajal Eye Pencil
These 3 eye pencils/pen took me by surprise because the quality is comparable to Maybelline’s and L’oreal’s eye pencils. It’s dark and highly pigmented. I must say this has to be one of the best buys! Eye pencils and eye liners of other cosmetics drugstore brands usually ranged from S$7.90 to S$25. But Essence’s eye pencils only cost a fraction of the above mentioned prices!
Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow and for the rest of the days! I will keep you guys updated!Chao!
