I’m a color cosmetics junkie. Although I’ve been reviewing makeup for more than a dozen years, you might think I’d get tired of makeup, but honestly, it gets more interesting by the day. I can’t help but get pumped about the latest makeup collections, colors and formulas. No lipstick is just a lipstick to me. Each product has something that makes it different and special, even if it’s just a tad lighter or darker, more intense, shimmery or matte, than the last one. I can never get enough!

Essence is a makeup line I didn’t know much about until I spied it in Europe a few weeks ago, but if you are a color cosmetics junkie like me, you will just about die when you read this post, because Essence is a line not just full of fun, fabulous color cosmetics,most of the lipsticks, eye shadows, pencils and glosses are under $5.00 with many starting at just 99 cents! The photo above shows just part of an extensive display that I got a chance to check out at a recent Essence Cosmetics event. There is a lot more below these top tiers that I just couldn’t get into the lens of my Blackberry’s camera. There is a core line, and new limited edition collections that are trendy and fun to try.

The thing about color is that trying new ones should be fun, and easy, Alas, many trendy cosmetics are so pricey, you might not take a risk because it costs a lot of money, and you can’t justify wearing it a couple of times and then stashing it in a drawer. Essence Cosmetics are so inexpensive it is all about having fun and trying new things. Go for that bright orange lipstick or glittery pink eye shadow that you really want to try.
Inexpensive products don’t necessarily mean poor quality. The Essence makeup I’ve been testing stays true to color, lasts a long time, and is easy to apply. The intended audience is definitely chic yougn women, and the packaging and advertising is veyr cute, young and girly. But the colors and products are going to wow moms as well as daughters. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love Essence!
