I received an awesome hamper from Cosmetix South Africa recently, with some delicious products to review from the Essence beauty range. I’ve always enjoyed this range because it’s light and lets the skin breathe. I find the price is affordable for the target market it’s trying to attract. When I was studying, a lot of my student friends would stock up on Essence products + run through them by the end of the week. It’s great for that busy lifestyle of going out constantly and wanting an affordable range of day-to-day make up that makes you look great quickly. I personally found the blush very appealing. This shade was particularly attractive – it’s light so it looks natural while still giving your skin a rosy-pink feel.
