Essence Spring/Summer 2016 Launch

To celebrate the official beginning of spring, I have details on the latest makeup coming from Essence.

As per usual, Essence is coming out with a whole bunch of new releases this season.  Even a potential high-end dupe…..

The launch event was held at bakery and cafe, Maman, in Toronto.  The theme was ‘Essence in Makeupland’, a spin on Alice in Wonderland.

You can expect a lot from Essence this season – products like liquid lipsticks, foundations, color correcting sticks, brow mascaras (similar to Benefit’s ‘Gimme Brow’), and more will soon begin to pop up at Shoppers Drug Mart, and Loblaws.

Sam from Gemstone Beauty getting a quick touch-up.

I think the products I’m most excited about are the Loblaws exclusives.  Specifically, the ombre blushes, and the blue and yellow nail polishes.  And can we talk about the lip liners?  I have GOT to get my hands on those.  See anything that you’ll be picking up?  Let me know in the comments.  Until next time, toodles! – Shawna
