Essence cosmetics is not so alien to many as it can be seen almost in all super markets. Haven’t seen yet? Well, check out the cosmetic department on your next trip for monthly grocery in Geant, Carrefour etc.,not guaranteed but chances are high you will find there.

I have used a lot of their products and keep going back to them to re-purchase some and ti try out new ones too. Check out my post here for my previous picks. Today, I have some more products that I tried and some re purchases.

essence foundation

Essence All About Matt- Oil-free foundation 

Shade:15 matt cameo

               Claims                                                   My Views

  • 12  hour long lasting                                                              4 hours
  • matte                                                                                        yes
  • oil free                                                                                     little oily
  • covers imperfections                                                          No but evens skin tone
  • moisturizing                                                                        yes but not greasy
  • radiant                                                                                       No

This foundation has very light coverage almost like a BBcream, so if you want a very light weight base that evens skin tone, you will like this.

Cons: shade selection is very limited and as a matt foundation , I feel it lacks mattifying effect. Not suitable for very oily skin but suitable for dry, normal and combination skin.

essence cosmetics soft touch mousse makeup

Essence Soft Touch Mousse makeup

Shade: 04 Matt Ivory

       Claims                                        My Views

  • matt                                                             Yes
  • natural finish                                                Yes

This mousse is one of the best ones I have ever tried. It has medium coverage, the finish is matt but not drying or cakey. It feels light on the skin and gives a beautiful glow. I chose Ivory which is very light for myself as the shade darker than this one was way too dark too. So what I did was, I balanced the shade by applying bronzer here and there so it won’t look odd. It covered most of my imperfections and I was very happy with the results.

There were many who asked what is mousse? Basically the term mousse is referred to the consistency of the product. It is a mix of liquid and powder , something in between a liquid and a cake foundation. So, this is something you can use in place of your regular foundation.

Essence mascara

Essence I love Extrem Crazy Volume Mascara

I have been always a big fan of Essence mascaras and this one i purchased on bloggers’ recommendation and definitely I wasn’t disappointed.


The lip liners are my re-purchase, been using these since 2 years already and this time was just in mood to try new ones.
