Say Hello To The Essence A/W Range!

Hey beaut's!

If you've been reading my blog for a while now you'll know that I'm a bit of a Essence Cosmetics addict, I absolutely love their products because not only are they all so affordable but the quality is actually very good too, I've always loved their lip products and nail polishes the best, their so so good! Anyway...recently Essence launched some fab new bit's for Autumn/Winter and I've been testing a few out over the last month or so and I'm actually pretty shook!!
I'm a sucker for new palettes so I was so excited when I saw Essence had some new ones I could play with. Their both from the new Crystal Power range which is inspired by sparkling crystals and precious stones perfect for the up-coming party season! Firstly theres the Blush & Highlighter Palette (£6.00) which contains two shimmering blushes in berry and apricot tones to give the cheeks a stunning flush and glow, and two highlighters one of which is more golden and super wearable (I've been loving it) and the other is a more sheer icy topper which mixes with other highlighters incredibly well and really glows. Then theres the Crystal Power Eyeshadow Palette (£6.00) which consists of nine eye shadows - eight of which are shimmering metallics and theres one matte shadow. I love the colour way of this palette, most of the shades are super wearable, I've actually been using every shade apart from the green-blue shades as they really aren't me but the rest are right up my street!
Theres also a Crystal Power Lipstick (£2.99) in the shade Be Happy which is super glitzy and fabulous, the lipstick has a nourishing formula enriched with vitamin E so it pampers and protects the lips,'s colour changing, the lippie reacts to the pH value of your lips so not only does it add some sparkle it adds a pink flush too! The last product I've been testing out from the Crystal Power range is their nail polish in Be Strong (£2.00), it's a gorgeous glittery rose gold shade and like all of the Essene nail polishes the quality is so good, theres also five other colours to collect which I'm going to need asap!! 
If your looking for a new primer for the winter months then the new Essence Hydrating + Perfecting Primer (£3.79) is a must try, if  you have dry skin or notice you get dryer when it's colder like most of us do then this primer not only helps to prep your skin for foundation but it's so nourishing and moisturising too, I've been loving it so far but I will say if you have oily skin then this is a no go for you unfortunately! Like I said before the Essence lipsticks are my favourites and their Perfect Shine Lipstick (£2.99) is an absolute dream, arhhh it's so creamy and just glides beautifully on the lips and packs a pigmented punch, I love it!
I don't have many contouring products in my stash so I was looking forward to trying the new Contouring Duo Palette (£3.49), the palette has two colour options - lighter skin and darker skin - with a highlighting shade and contouring shade to play with, so far so good with this one although I need more practise on powder contouring he he! Theres also some new single blushers and highlighters that have just been launched, I have the blush in the shade Befitting (£2.50), it's matte medium pink tone which is super versatile and the highlighter I have is in the shade Heroic, which is a light golden shade which is slightly on the safer side so if you like a subtle highlight then this one will be for you!

All Essence products are available in Wilko and you can also now find them online on Feel Unique.
