Make-up girls! I have just stumbled upon a thrilling cosmetic discovery
|Colours: #86 - A Lovely Secret, #53 - You Belong to Me|
Since I am currently gorging on deep dish pizzas in Chicago, my fellow brunette and best friend has agreed to write this post. More to come from this beauty guru so stay tuned! - Emi
While at my local Shoppers Drug Mart, off to the side of the brand-name products we all know and love, I spotted a colourful little stand. I immediately rushed over, drawn to its tiny little nooks filled with its tiny little beauty gems.
Whaaaa? Ok, now THIS was worth investigating. The brand? ESSENCE.
Essence is a German-based brand that hit the NA market this month. It is one of the biggest brands in Europe and has won multiple awards for its motto of high quality and low cost (despite its grass-roots marketing).
|You Belong to Me - $1.49|
I purchased two nail polishes to test them out. I am happy to report that Essence’s motto holds true! The bottles are little (5 ml) but I was able to wash dishes for a whole hour without one single chip. Impressed.
I look forward to trying out more products from the line and reviewing them for you guys but in the mean time, go check them out!
