New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products

New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products - Lana Talks

Not long ago I got an awesome package from Dominur, which represents brands like Essence, Catrice and L.O.V in Slovenia. I already reviewed two matte liquid lipsticks from the Coast'n'Chill LE from Essence. Today I will review three of the new Autumn/Winter 2017 products by Essence, which are the Superlast Eyeliner, Fresh & Fit Awake Primer and an Instant Volume Boost Mascara. I have to say I like all of them.

Superlast Eyeliner Deep Black

It comes in a black packaging with white writing and it looks quite elegant. The packaging contains 3ml of product and it costs 2,79€. I have mostly used pen eyeliners (I love this one from Essence), so I needed some time to get used to this type of an eyeliner.

At first, I struggled a bit when applying it, because the tip it's quite long and the formula is very liquidy, so you have to be careful, I sometimes got it on my eyelashes and it just looked messy. But then I got used to it, I just wipe a bit of the product off and I try not to get it on my lashes and it works. It's not as easy to draw the line as by the pen eyeliner, but with some practice, it can look perfect. I didn't try it for a winged eyeliner look because I can't do a nice wing even with a pen eyeliner.

The formula it's quite sticky and it takes some time to dry. When it's dry, it's still just slightly sticky and it doesn't move or smudge. It stays the entire day. The eyeliner is really good pigmented and a deep black shade. If you make a mistake when applying it, you need to wait till it's dry to remove it with a q-tip or whatever you use, because otherwise, it will smudge everywhere.


Fresh & Fit Awake Primer

New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products Fresh & Fit Awake Primer - Lana Talks

The primer comes in a nude coloured squeeze tube with a black cap. It contains 30ml of product and it costs 3,79€. I think this is my third primer, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. It has a light fruity scent. It is a water-based primer and the consistency is very lightweight and glowy, but not shimmery. It can be applied alone or with a foundation on top. If I apply it alone, my skin does look glowy, not exactly dewy or oily, but it looks like a healthy glow. I usually apply a mattifying powder on top of my makeup and then the effect isn't visible.

I really like how it feels on my skin, like I don't have anything on. It blends into the skin perfectly and it feels smooth, the foundation just glides on. If I compare it to Avon's primer, this one feels a lot lighter on the skin. I didn't really notice that it would do anything for my pores, also I didn't notice it would make my makeup stay longer on my face. It is a nice primer, but I feel it's not good enough that I would bother using it every time I do my makeup, but my skin does feel smoother when I use it.

Instant Volume Boost Smudge-Proof & Intense Black Mascara

New Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Products Instant Volume Boost Smudge Proof & Intense Black Mascara - Lana Talks

The mascara has a bulky purple packaging. The writing and the whole packaging by this one, compared to the other two products, looks childish. You get 14ml of product for 3,29€. All of the Essence mascaras that I tried lately impressed me, I love their Volume Stylist mascara that I reviewed recently. It's nice to know that now I can rely on their mascaras and not buy Maybelline's, which are my favourite and basically save some money.

The Instant Volume Boost Mascara has a medium sized wand, the bristles are kind of swirled from the bottom to the top. They grab the lashes pretty well. With one quick coat you can get very natural looking lashes, but if you do a few more coats it makes them stand out. I feel it's a quick to apply mascara, that doesn't take a long time to look amazing.

At first, when I started using it, I felt that the formula was too wet and I had a feeling it clumped my lashes together, but when it dried it looked amazing. I looked at the mirror and I was just wow, I didn't expect it to be so good. My lashes looked so black and full of volume, although I don't really notice the volume part in other mascaras because I don't really have problems with that (on the picture it isn't really showing, I just can't capture how amazing it is). I'm not sure, but I think I like the effect even more than by the Volume Stylist mascara. But it's not as longlasting as that one. By the Volume Stylist I never experienced any crumbling or smudging, not even when crying, even though it's not a waterproof formula. With this one I didn't notice crumbling either, it does crumble a bit if you rub your eyes. But I didn't notice it would smudge. It wasn't hard to remove.

In conclusion - I love the mascara, I love that it gives my lashes lots of volume and I generally love the effect of fullness it gives to my lashes. I love that it actually justifies the name, volume boost - check, smudge proof - check, intense black - check. I really recommend it. I also really like the eyeliner, how black it is and that it doesn't move until the evening when I take it off. I wanted to write that I still prefer the pen version, but I'm not so sure anymore now when I got used to this one. The primer is nice, but like I said, another step in my makeup routine that I don't really need, especially if it doesn't make my makeup stay on longer.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Jaz imam maskaro in mi je res všec zaradi volumna, ki ga naredi. Mi pa ni všeč,da sem pod očmi črna po par urah. Mi je Rock'n'doll veliko bolj všeč, sem ravno prej kupila že 5. :D Primer se mi pa zdi zanimiv, mi je všeč da naredi malo glowy videz. :)

    1. Škoda, meni pa se to ne dogaja, razen če se res dotikam oči, ko pozabim, da imam maskaro gor :D Rock'n'Doll a še nisem preizkusila. Za primer ti lahko rečem, da če ti je všeč ta malo glowy efekt ga kupi, ni pa ravno nek presežek, se da tudi brez živet :D

  2. Mene mika tale primer, verjetno bi bil za jesen kar primeren, glede na to da ponavadi z obstojnostjo ni takšnih težav kot poleti. Lepega glowa pa se pa itak nikoli ne branimo. :)

    1. Če ne rabiš preveč obstojnosti, ti ga za glow priporočam. Kot samostojen izdelek brez vsega ostalega pride zelo lepo. :)
