Reviews: Special Thanks to Essence Cosmetics Malaysia for the Gift! ~^^




Recently I was chosen as the winner for the 23rd day of Essence Cosmetic Malaysia advent calendar giveaway, and yesterday the prize finally reached my doorstep. To be honest, at first when they announced my name on Essence Malaysia Facebook page, I thought that it wasn't me! Due to slight mistake on the last name (which I'm not sure if its my fault or not--I probably made a typo in the raffle haha).




Mine is supposed to be "Anis Farhana Aliman" whilst it was "Anis Farhana Amin" in the post. So I had my doubt. What if there is actually someone that have a name similar to me? So I didn't held my hope high. Haha, funny right?

So when the parcel arrived, it was a very delightful surprise for me ♥ 
Thanks again!

Therefore, in gratitude I decided to make a quick reviews on the products that I received.

I came across Essence Cosmetics when I was browsing products in Watson store about a month ago. For your information, this brand is relatively new in Malaysia, although they are already well known across the globe. Originating from German, this brand has been around since 2002 and they does not do any testing on animals. So extra yayyy for that :)

So these are the lists of products I received:



1. Essence LASH Mania Reloaded Mascara
  
about product :
"...accurately grips your lashes to give them a push-up effect and give lashes extreme volume and a dramatic false-lash look. secret tip: the LASH mania reloaded mascara offers perfect separation and can therefore also be used as a mascara topper."

my review: 
"..i really love the applicator. it doesn't make my eyelashes stick on each other and it feels lightweight too. Although its main purpose is for falsies, I find it okay on my lash!"
 
2. Essence Eyeliner Pen (01 Black)

about product:
" ..the eyeliner with original japanese ink ensures an absolutely accurate line. ideal for on-the-go"

my review:
"..perfect for touch up. easy to use and able to draw fine line with its small tip. the shade is not dark black, but its perfect to be use as a outer guide before you fill it with darker shade."

3. Essence Kajal Pencil (01 Black)

about product:
"..essence kajal pencil creates fashionable color highlights on your eyes in cool and trendy colors to ensure a totally individual style. also available in other shades"

my review:
"..this pencil has a very dark shade but it does smudge a little. I think it would be perfect to be use when you want to create a smokey/smudging effect using eyeliner."


4. Essence Mono Eyeshadow (01 Chill Out)

about product:
"..the popular mono eyeshadows ensure color highlights on your eyelids and are sure to give all girls that extra-special added touch. available in other shades too"

my review:
"..the one I got is a shimmering white eyeshadow. I think you can also use it as a highlighter too."



5. Essence Metal Glam Eyeshadow 
(01 Jewel Up the Ocean, 04 Sparkle All Night & 05 Chocolate Jewellery)

about product:
"..metallic and shimmering effects on your eyes are the ultimate trend! the especially soft texture with extremely high coverage and metallic results creates expressive eye make-up guaranteed to be eye-catching! the range of colors is huge.."

my review:
"..just like its name, these eye shadows does provide a very glittery effect. the level of pigmentation is medium, and very suitable to be used for a party/concert look. It does have a little fall out and a bit chalky when i swatch it using my makeup brush so I have to be a little careful about it. My favorite one out of three is the turquoise blue one called Jewel Up the Ocean "



6. Essence Quattro Eyeshadow (07 Over the Taupe)

about product:
".. quattro styles. different textures ranging from silky shimmering to intensive shine ensure unlimited creativity with your eye make-up. perfectly aligned shades, excellent color-dispersion and long-lasting results"

my review:
"..i love this small palette since I can carry it in my bag for touch up. the colours consist of two lighter matte shades and another two has a shimmering effect."
