Essence, Shoppers and GIVEAWAY(S)!

A few more Shoppers drug marts are getting Essence expansions AND there's a whole bunch of new stuff coming out for Spring! AND they're holding a $500 SDM Essence giveaway AND so am I! (Woah, so much news all at once.)

The new Metal Glam ($2.99) shadows are glitter heaven. Not all colors apply evenly but if you're looking for an affordable high glitter option, these won't break the bank. Swatches above were dry over primer, applying them wet did give a little more color but Golden Up was still very patchy.

Get Big Lash Essence

The Get Big Lashes Mascara ($3.99) is new for spring. I always need some more volume in my limp Asian lashes so will be giving this a go soon.

These lipsticks ($2.99) were quite sheer upon first application but built up well enough and were comfortable on the lips. They were true to their non-drying claim and gave a nice sheen to the lips as well. 

The Apple Pie Glossy lipbalm ($1.49) was a nice nude MLBB color for my lips and gave a nice subtle sparkly gloss. It smells LIKE APPLE PIE!! So good. 

The Sun Club All-in-One Bronzing Highlighter (shade 01 Sun Light) is an awesome bronzing/highlighting palette. It smells like coconuts,  blended together the color makes a great long lasting feminine pink blush. More precise dipping of the blush gives some good highlight and bronzing options. I'm really quite impressed with this product and I recommend this!

Essence also has a new stamping kit ($3.99) that I'm excited to try. I love the stamping looks that Jasmine creates so a good budget option to get started is pretty awesome. I'm expecting more than a few failed attempts until I get it right.

Favorites: the lip products and the bronzer/highlighter palette!

Enter to win an Essence Prize Pack bundle (you will receive a package of various new items, much like the ones shown in this post). This giveaway is open to US and CANADA only and runs from May 5th to May 24th!
