Essence Spring 2013

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

I was lucky to be one of the winners of a twitter giveaway hosted by Essence a week or two ago. The prize came yesterday and I couldn't wait to tell you, since it contains some new products that Essence is launching this Spring (with the * noted).

Inside the clear plastic bag, from L-R:
- Make-up sponge* in Pink
- XXXL Shine lip gloss in Big Night Out
- All About Matt! fixing compact powder* (top) and 3D duo eyeshadow* in Irresistible Caramel Cream (bottom)
- I ♥ Extreme Crazy Volume mascara*
- Long Lasting eye pencil in Black Fever, and
- Nail polish in Break Through.

Since the day the Essence display was spotted at Shoppers Fall 2010, I have been getting a few things from the LE collections the brand put out for really short periods of time. I don't own any products from the core line, except for the nail polish (but not this exact shade).

I don't know if you guys want reviews of any of these current and new products, but hope this post gives you a heads up of what to come. There are more mascaras, single eyeshadows and palettes, lip balms, nail polish and nail art supplies, etc. in this Spring release. Displays at Shoppers will be updated in the next few weeks, so keep an eye out :)

I already know that I'll be getting more 3D eyeshadows, as I am a fan of wavy raised patterns on the surface :) How about you?


  1. Congrats! I'd be interested to see if the makeup sponge which looks like the beauty blender, is as good as the actual thing :) Thanks!

  2. Congrats on your win. I only just discovered the Essence line and I love seeing new things. I am interested in hearing what you think of the sponge.

    1. Thank you :) Essence is awesome. Second vote for the sponge, I'll start playing with it soon

  3. What I like about Essence is that the Canadian prices at Shoppers are the same as U.S. prices in Fred Meyer stores (Washington state).

  4. I got this too!
    and I remember you tweeting asking ppl about the sponge, so its great you got ur own to play with :)

    1. Yeah, I was excited. Now let's hope it works well :)
