Essence Thank You Box. What's Inside?

Essence Thank You Box. What's Inside?

Last year Essence cosmetics celebrated 15 years. I'm late, but still, happy birthday Essence! Some of us bloggers also got a special thank you box towards the end of the year. I think there was also a contest where you could win this box, but it's over now. These products are not available separately, which is a shame because I really like them. I still decided to do this post so you can see what's inside of the box if you are interested.

Essence Thank You Box. What's Inside?

Be My Highlight Eyeshadow Palette
Not even once I used these as eyeshadows, I don't normally wear shades like these. They are perfect as highlighters. They come in a cardboard packaging, which I like. It's square, easy to store and looks nice. The closure is magnetic and it works well. You get 11,2g of products in the packaging. There is also a diamond shaped mirror inside, some mirrors in palettes are sometimes weird and useless, but this one is great.

The shadows are okay pigmented, they can look a bit patchy when swatching, but not when you put them on the face. They do dust a bit. There are four eyeshadow a.k.a. highlighters in the palette. The first one is blue toned, the second one is a creme yellow shade, the third one has rose violet undertone and the last one is light green. On their own, I like to use the second and the third one, because they are quite warm, but I usually mix all together and I get quite a neutral shimmery highlighter. It depends on how I mix it, but it's usually warm-toned.

I really like these shadows as highlighters, I have been reaching a lot for these lately. Almost every time when I wear a highlighter and it's not the Essence Cubanita, it's this palette. The finish is glowy and a bit shimmery and they last almost for the entire day.

Make Me Special Prismatic Lipstick Topper 01 Shine Bright
The lipstick comes in a childish looking packaging, but it closes well. It contains 4,5g of product. I thought mine was broken because I couldn't twist it out, but now suddenly it works. I don't know if I'm just clumsy or what was it. I expected the formula to be a bit hard with all the glitter and that I would feel the glitter but that's not a case.

The formula feels quite smooth, I can feel the glitter, but only slightly, if I don't think about it, I don't notice it. It has a nice scent, I think I can smell salty caramel. You can use the lipstick as a topper or on your own. I don't like it, it's too glittery. It's almost like a lip balm, but with a lot of glitter. Also, the glitter gets everywhere, I had it all over my face and it's quite hard to remove.

Eyeshadow Brush
I love the design of the brush, it's very shiny and mirror-like effect with transitions between rose and green shades. It also feels very smooth in the hands. The brush is a bit angled, the bristles are soft and not very dense. It's nice to use, it's perfect if you're in a rush, it's such a shape, that you can quickly apply the eyeshadow and also blend it at the same time. But this I only used for light nude shades, it probably wouldn't blend it well with some more vibrant colours. I also use it as a highlighter brush, for the shadows in the palette from this box, because I can apply them precisely.

Ready. Set. Glow. Cosmetics Bag
The cosmetics bag is in a rose gold metallic shade with a black writing on it. It's well made, the zipper is sturdy. It's quite big, bigger than I would normally have in my purse. I normally just carry a lipstick or lip balm and in summer usually a powder so this is too big for me, but if you carry more stuff with you, it will be a perfect size. But you can always store something other in it.

Thank you Essence for sending me this box. It was a nice surprise and I do like all of the products, except the lipstick topper, it's not something for me. My favourite is probably the eyeshadow aka the highlighter palette. I really like using it.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Super objava. Meni je torbica tako noro cute! ❤ Prav tako pa sta me pozitivno presenetila paleta in čopič. Kar se tiče lipstick topperja pa se popolnoma strinjam s tabo - bleščice vsepovsod.

    1. Vse je super, lipstick topper je pa preveč za moj okus. Še dan kasneje sem imela bleščice po obrazu, najprej sem mislila, da so od primerja, ampak na koncu sem ugotovila, da so bile od te šminke haha :D
