[SIMPLE + AFFORDABLE DRUGSTORE PRODUCTS THAT ARE PERFECT FOR A NUDE EYE LOOK, FEATURING ESSENCE COSMETICS!]


Hello everyone, 

Have you guys tried out make-up products by the Essence cosmetics range as yet? If not, I'll introduce some daily nude eye essentials that you may find handy so make sure to keep on reading x 

You can easily find the Essence cosmetics available at your local Priceline for such affordable prices. What you'll find is that majority of the Essence cosmetics are Made In Italy which means they are definitely decent products to play around with! Also, they are cruelty free which means no animals have been harmed in the process of getting these products onto the market. (I love animals) 

For more information regarding the Essence cosmetics range, make sure you check out their official store here. Alternatively, you can look to find the Essence range being stocked at your local Priceline store nationwide (if you're located in Australia). 

For a day or night time make-up look, you can easily look to opt for lighter wear and coverage with the Essence cosmetics range. They're super affordable and their packaging is so adorable! 

So for a simple nude look, you can easily look to check out the products below. These products are mainly focused on the eyes - so I will be introducing you all to their 'All about Nudes eyeshadow palette', as well as some popular items from their mascara and eyeliner range. 

I hope you enjoy the read lovelies and let's begin xo



Essence, Make Me brow 
eyebrow gel mascara
 (RRP $5.10) 

This eyebrow gel is definitely cheaper than the 'Gimme Brow' product and looks to do a decent job for your brows. If you're after a similar dupe to the Gimme Brow then I would highly recommend the Make Me brow eyebrow gel for all of your brow needs. It's a 3 in 1 coloured brow gel which looks to fill, colour and keep your brows in place all day long. It fills the brows wonderfully (as it comes in a tinted gel brow formula) as well as giving a natural look to them as it also comes with tiny fibres. The brush size is so perfect for neatly filling in your brows and I am so amazed at how affordable this eyebrow gel mascara is. Most importantly it is not tested on the animals which is also ideal. 


Essence Eyeliner pen waterproof 
(RRP $5.10) 

This eyeliner pen is very long lasting and comes waterproof too (say goodbye to smudges and fading). This eyeliner pen is very superfine and the tip is of a felt tip applicator making it easier for you to draw on the cat-eye flicks. I love how lightweight this eyeliner pen is as it is so much easier to line your eyes with. 



Essence Forbidden Volume False 
Lash Mascara Top Coat 

For that extra volume for your lashes, you're going to need a top coat which can help to boost the look of your lashes. You can easily look to apply the top coat on top of your mascara application and how it works is that the fibres that are already present in the top coat will actually intensify the look of your lashes further. I found that the top coat did not cause any clumping and if anything it looked to add more volume and lengthen my lashes. 

Essence rock'n' roll crazy XXXL 
VOLUME Mascara 

I have been using this volume mascara underneath my top coat and let me just say that it has incredibly looked to lengthen the lashes as the brush comes with a specially cut fibre brush to coat each individual lash. This mascara definitely looks to amplify the volume of your lashes and makes an ideal product if you're after some crazy volume. 


Essence All About Nudes Palette (02 Nudes)
 RRP $8.20 

I always love an affordable and slightly pigmented nude eyeshadow palette especially when it can look to subtly bring out my eyes. There are also many nude eyeshadow palettes in the market at the moment but I have been literally picking up this palette every week to do my eye basic make-up look as it's not too intense looking. The eyeshadow palette is perfect for an everyday basic look as it contains all of the neutral colours that I would need to assist me with creating a soft and subtle look. 

The shades range from medium to dark nuances as well as some matte and shimmery metallics which allows you to play around with different looks. This eyeshadow palette is lightweight making it handy to carry in your handbag or when travelling. I love how the there is a variety to choose from the matte, shimmers and metallics shades. The eyeshadows are very blendable and makes it very easy to create different looks with this palette. For a budget nude palette, it's a decent buy. 


SWATCHED!
