November Newbies

18 November 2016

This week I got a bunch of new products and tried them all out to see if they are any good. I am a person who is all for exploring different brands, but sometimes when you find a brand of great quality it's hard not to stick to it. Below there are products from Essence and Aura, my two favorite brands at the moment, so take a look 😊...

When applied individually or in combination on the cheekbones, bridge of the nose or below the lips, these three highlighter powders with light-reflecting pigments accentuate the features with a light pearl, intensive shimmer or golden glow finish. This palette is the only product in this collection that I think is a total miss for me because I can only use the third shade which is a gold highlight that looks great on my skin, but the other two are unusable at all for me due to the fact that the first shade has almost no glow at all and the second or middle one has just way too much shine and shimmer, and when your outside and the sun hits you you're literally looking like a disco ball.😃


The matt touch blush with a soft powder texture creates a matt finish on your cheeks gives your complexion a fresh touch of colour for a healthy look. On the picture it looks a bit dark, but this is actually a shade 30 rose me up! which I find perfect because I like a more neutral color on my cheeks.


The shimmer bronzing powder from the Essence sun club range provides your face and neckline with a shimmering, lightly tanned finish. Its silky-smooth texture looks great on my pale skin, and I use it carefully because it's for darker skin tone, but at the same time it's strangely kind of working for me.


If you prefer pressed powder, this fine, compact powder is for you! It can be applied above foundation to mattify your skin and set your make-up, for a matt, natural and smooth complexion. After trying this thing I will definitely not be using my old essence pressed powder anymore because this new product is just way better.

 The texture offers long-lasting, high coverage to hide all skin imperfections and provides a matt and flawless finish – without a mask-like effect. As someone who has constant problem with blemish this is the perfect product to use to hide my imperfections and I highly recommend you try it as well if you're dealing with the same problem as I am.

The texture is different from the primers I used before, this one is more like a cream. My skin sucked it in quickly and almost instantly gave me a healthy shine and a fresh look. If I didn't have as much blemishes I probably would just use this product on my face and would not put on any foundation. Conceals small blemishes and skin redness and some of the pores. It is recommended for all skin types, but I am sure that the ones with dry skin will like it best. What is even more important that this primer does not irritate the skin, so even if you have very sensitive skin feel free to use this. This makes my makeup and the foundation more durable and it stays in place for a long time, for ex. I tested it today and it managed to keep my makeup in place for exactly 9 hours which is amazing for a product this cheap (5 euros).

Last, but not least the Aura makeup brushes that I can not leave without at the moment. I had them for almost a week and they immediately became one of my favorites. There is basically a brush for everything, from foundation to smudging, powder, blush, lip liner, etc. I highly recommend to any of you who have a drugstore near you and they are selling this brand to go and get yourself these brushes.


So that's it guys, comment if you need some more info on the products 😉
