When it comes to makeup, quality, and affordability are often key considerations. One brand that has been gaining popularity for delivering both is Essence – a popular European makeup brand known for its exceptional range of cosmetics. To help you get familiar with Essence, I've gathered up my top 5 favorites from this brand. I believe every makeup enthusiast or beauty beginner should try these products. Are you excited to learn a bit more? Let's take a look!

  • Essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder

Banana powder is every makeup artist's secret weapon for achieving a flawless complexion. This product has gained a reputation for its ability to banish under-eye darkness and set makeup in place. Essence Brighten Up! Banana Powder gets its name from its pale yellow shade, which is perfect for brightening the under-eye area and reducing the appearance of dark circles. It's also incredibly versatile and works well on a variety of skin tones.

But, what makes this powder even more attractive is the affordable price. While some high-end banana powders can break the bank, Essence's offering provides the same benefits without the hefty price tag. Simply apply a small amount of this powder using a makeup brush or sponge to set your makeup and achieve a soft, matte finish that lasts all day.

  • Essence Liquid Ink Black Eyeliner

A classic black eyeliner is an essential makeup item in everyone's bag. Luckily Essence has what to offer here. I'm talking about my favorite Liquid Ink Eyeliner in black color. This product is my personal favorite and I repurchase it all the time. It also has a waterproof version, which is great for summer-proofing your makeup look.

What sets this eyeliner apart is its intense black pigment that doesn't fade or smudge throughout the day. Plus, it's waterproof, making it ideal for all-day wear, even in humid conditions. The best part? It comes at an incredibly affordable price point, making it accessible to everyone. Whether you're a fan of dramatic eye looks or prefer a more subtle line, the Essence Liquid Ink Black Eyeliner delivers the perfect cat-eye every single time.

  • Essence This Is Nude Lipstick

Finding the perfect nude lipstick can be a challenge, but Essence makes it easier with its "This Is Nude" Lipstick collection. These lipsticks come in a range of nude shades designed to complement various skin tones. The creamy and moisturizing formula glides on smoothly, providing comfortable wear throughout the day.

One of the standout features of the "This Is Nude" Lipstick is its impressive color payoff. Despite its budget-friendly price, this Essence lipstick delivers rich and pigmented hues that can be built up or sheered out to suit your preference. This is a definite must-have for a subtle, everyday makeup look.

  • Essence Get Big! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

Essence produces a bunch of high-quality makeup products, and mascaras are the most famous of them all. Get Big! Lashes Volume Curl Mascara by Essence is a game-changer, instantly adding volume, curl, and length to your lashes without clumping or smudging. It can lift and lengthen even the shortest curles, like the one I have!

The unique, curved brush of this mascara reaches even the tiniest lashes, giving your eyes a wide-awake and glamorous look. Whether you have naturally straight lashes or just want that extra oomph, this mascara is up to the task. Plus, it's long-lasting and flake-free, making it perfect for all-day wear. 

  • Essence Eyeshadow Palettes

Last but not least, a few words about the awesome range of Essence eyeshadow palettes. Their palettes come in an array of color schemes, from neutral shades for everyday makeup looks to vibrant and bold hues for special occasions. My current favorites are Salut Paris and Sawasdee Bangkok palettes, inspired by the picturesque beauty of these cities.

The quality of Essence eyeshadows is exceptional. The pigmentation is impressive, and the bendability ensures that even makeup novices can create stunning eye looks. With these palettes, you can experiment with different eye makeup styles without breaking the bank.
