I picked this baby on my Europe visit. I picked up very few products actually as I was supposed to be there for atleast 2-3 years but somehow I returned in a month. And in all this confusion couldn’t plan my shopping.
I am not fond of term Matte when comes to makeup. I always prefer Dewey. Well all this has nothing to do with the bronzing powder that I am going to review today, I bought it simply coz I don’t have any matt bronzer with me and also the claims which this makes put it apart from the rest. I have shade 05: Light Bronze with me.
This bronzer is from Essence pure skin range and also available in this range are compact powder, mousse makeup & coverstick.
Essence is an German brand. I purchased this lipgloss in Geneva.
What it Claims:
Ultra glossy, moisturizing & non-sticky.

I got it for 2 euros for 5ml

Texture: The texture is smooth & creamy which is a bit on runny side but this doesn’t bleed once you apply and gets settled well on lips. The gloss does contain shimmer particles which are very minute & subtle that are barely visible or felt. The formula is quiet moisturising & I never felt the need of a chapstick. Continue reading
