Making the Most of My Spring w/ essence

Every few months, I (just as you should) get rid of my old makeup products. Now I know that you may not want to get rid of your favorite mascara, but when it goes bad, it needs to go into the can! Reinventing beauty routines can be a hassle, and an expensive one, but I’ve found my saving grace with essence makeup!

I’ve talked about essence before, so this brand should not be new to everyone! I’m in love with everything about the lines, but in particular, how quality their lines are at the price point that you may find them.  In order to get the most out of your makeup, you shouldn’t have to spend hundreds of dollars in Sephora. The great thing about essence is that you can find everything from blusher, eyebrow powder, and color correctors in a wide range of colors, but at a price that doesn’t break the budget.

I love using essence to revamp my spring makeup collection! From their new line, Watch Me Sparkle, I have so many favorites, but I’m going to narrow it down to my top 4 that I can’t live without on a daily basis! These specific pieces are perfect for an everyday look and who knows, I may do a video all about how great this line is on my Youtube channel in just a few days!

The first piece that I love out of everything is the Make Me Brow Duo Powder. Wearing makeup is a choice, specifically MY choice. I don’t always wear makeup, but occasionally, I’ll just do my brows! I’ve never really been one to fill in my brows, but this powder is an amazing way to do so because it comes in 2 different shades and doesn’t make my brows too heavy! In a brow powder, I’mt just looking for a power to accentuate the shape of my brows, not to create a brand new brow and this powder is life. Honest.

Next Up is the Matt Matt Lipstick in Kiss Me if You Can. Now we all know the power of a red lipstick. Red lips can be sexy, fun, and just make everything pop. Red lips can add that last bit of sparkle for your look and really pull everything together! Red lips are amazing and I love how moisturizing these lipsticks truly are for my lips. I’m always having lots of problems and issues with my lips, so having something to always moisturize my lips is a great addition to my bag. The color is amazing and it just makes me feel confident when I wear it!The Hat Logic - Finding My Springtime Makeup Routine with essence

Third is the Contouring Eye Pencil! Now I didn’t know what eye contouring was, but hey when I got my hands on this pencil, I fell in love. I’ve heard about contouring for a while now, but never really eye contouring, but this was great! When i’m going in on my face, this pencil is a great way to shape how I work with my eyes and make them really pop!

Last but not least, the Lash & Brow Gel Mascara! Okay, I’ve been looking for a brow gel since I ran out of the essence Brow gel that I’ve used since them. This gel is perfect because it’s clear, but also does an amazing job tailoring my brows and lengthening my lashes! I whip this out when I want to give my lashes a bit of a fluff when I don’t want to wear makeup and I want to be a little more comfortable in my own skin! Confidence is key, and trust me, when my brows and lashes look great, I feel amazing!

    I love Essence products! I think they are highly underrates. I love that they are affordable and they’re actually great quality makeup!

    All these products look amazing!! I never used a brow powder, but I will definitely give it a go thanks to you! And an eye contour pencil?! I need to youtube eye contouring now because that’s a first. I definitely contour my face so I can’t even imagine what eye contouring is. You learn something new every day! It’s so cool that they’re hosting a workshop in NY! Hands on is always fun!

    With love, Jenn

    I’ve always loved Essence products! I remember when they first were introduced at Ulta and I was so skeptical because of their inexpensive prices, but then once I tried a few of their products I was hooked! I need to get my hands on some of their new products!

    I’ve never heard of an eye contour pencil either but I definitely need to have it! Usually I just use the contour powder for my face but that pencil looks way more convenient. Thanks for sharing! xoxo

    I’m so glad you were able to find some beautiful new beauty prodcts! Cleaning out my beauty stash is long overdue and this seems like the brand to start with replenishing. Thank you so much for sharing this brand with us. The colors are so pretty!

    Thank you for recommending this brand!! I’ve never tried them before, but I will definitely keep them in mind. It is so expensive getting new makeup every couple of months, so it’s nice to have more affordable options.

    I have never used Essence products so thank you for sharing. I am going to head to their Insta to enter the contest and check them out !

    This is awesome. I love essence. These all look like great products. I particularly love their lipglosses, but I have yet to try their duo powder.

    I have some of the products pictured here from Essence and love them. I remember when I discovered the brand, I was really surprised by the quality of the products … yet the price is still so affordable!

    The funny thing is that people don’t know that makeup is actually something that has a best before date, just as eggs, milk and what not and I’d say that everyone should have a good look in their closet to see what they should toss away. With that said your spring cleaning resulted in you showing us a lot of new stuff that I’m eager to try some of! Thanks for the tips babe 🙂

    Yes finally Spring is here and its time to play not only with clothes but also with make up!! Love these colors babe and thanks for sharing this.

    I’m so bad at throwing out my makeup regularly, but this is a good reminder. I once kept using a mascara and it totally messed with my eye. Buying inexpensive, but still quality, makeup is a good way to keep up with this practice.
