It's My Essence Party

I purchased two of the new Essence mono matte eyeshadows not so long ago. It's been about time to finally try them out. Well, at least one of them...

As you can see from the title of the post, I decided to try out It's My Party eyeshadow. It's a bit lighter teal than Freestyle, but the pigmentation is good nonetheless. Perfect match for my oh-so-wanted Essence Meet You in Budapest eyeliner.

Products used for this look:

* Urban Decay Primer Potion
* Essence It's My Party eyeshadow
* Essence Werewolf or Vampire duo eyeshadow
* Essence Black Mania eyeliner
* Essence Meet You in Budapest eyeliner
* Essence Multi Action mascara

Now that's a lot of Essence products. As you can see, I like them a lot, but you have to have luck while picking your items at their display. Some of the products are great, some are OK and some are just bad and not worth the money. Although they're usually cheap. I have to say the quality is getting better in my opinion. For instance: I never liked their eyeliners, but now I'm totally in love with their Black Mania khol pencil. It's way better than my previous favorite - Gosh Khol & Contour pencil. That's why I use it all the time when I'm doing my make up. It's great and it's only 2 €.

Enough blabbering...

Here's another photo of my make up with my nails. I'm wearing H&M nail polish in Moody Model. Isn't it pretty? I don't know what's up with me and teal color. I can't seem to get enough of it. Polish was easy to apply, the formula is good and I only wish it was a bit more opaque. I applied slightly thicker coats and got away with two of them. =) Thanks for this one, Feline!

What are your thoughts about Essence cosmetics? Do you like/use it or not?

Thanks for looking!


  1. Gorgeous look! I wish we got Essence here. I love teal and that polish is so pretty. xx

  2. nice make up !!
    do you know if i can find somewhere i love berlin polish ??

  3. Thanks ladies!

    @Lily Nail: I'm sorry, but I wouldn't know. They aren't selling that collection here in Slovenia. Try asking someone from Germany.

  4. Your eye makeup looks tremendous. Very sexy looking. You have beautiful eyes and do your makeup so well. Love the nails also.

  5. The shadow suit your eye color well, its gorgeous!

  6. I love it all! I love Essence too, but as you said, their products really are hit and miss! Their nail polishes are a particular favourite of mine, and usually their eyshadows are pigmented too. I need to get Its My Party, I love how it blends out to a greenish kind of colour!

  7. I like Essence Cosmetics I usually buy this brand here in Spain but is becoming dificult to get lately. Cheap, quality and cute what's else can you ask for? I love Black Mania khol pencil, I think it's the best black khol i'll never have had!! Nail polish or eyeshadows are good too. I usually talk about this brand in my blog.

  8. That eye look is so pretty! I love Essence, but only have the super limited line that's available at Ulta. :( I would so buy a lot more Essence, if Ulta carried more!

  9. Love this look! These colors are gorgeous.

  10. You can never have too much teal! Those are especially beautiful shades, eyes and nails! :o)

  11. I am loving teal with you! The eyes, the nails! This whole post in going in my folder of "all things fantastic"

  12. What a gorgeous look, and I'm in love with your nail polish!

  13. Sweet shadow and fantastic nail polish! I loved them!

  14. The nail colour matches the eyes so well! Love it!
