Farmers NZ is soon to be launching Europe's number one brand Essence Cosmetics here in New Zealand and I was lucky enough to try some of these products. These 4 are my top favs. Fiirst off Essence is cruelty free affordable (like incredibly affordable) and the products are highly pigmented and actually amazing. This lip pencil gives me life, and retails for just $2.25. I'm not joking.
So as I mentioned this lip liner is amazing. The perfect 90's red brown, named "Satin Mauve" 06. It's incredibly soft and glides on more like a lipstick.
My second fav is the Essence super fine eyeliner pen. It's BLACK, and the tip is extra long so I found it gives more support in application. It's smudge proof & ophthalmologist tested.
The eyeshadow quad aptly named "To die for" consists of a shimmery white, champagne, cool dark brown & a slightly warmer medium brown. Perfect for a natural smokey eye.
Lastly the Lash Princess Mascara is a full bodied volumising formulation with a curvy brush and glossy finish. It didn't budge all day but came off easily when removed. Perfect.
Essence launches at 20 Farmers stores throughout New Zealand this month. X
6 weeks using Revitalash. My lower lashes have doubled, and I see improvement in the top lashes too. It's supposed to reach maximum length after 3-4 months so will update again then. I'm loving the results so far! X
Excuse the lack of makeup but wanted to show you my brow progress! I started using revitalash 1 month ago today, and I have already noticed a huge improvement with the length and thickness of my lashes. I had barely anything before, so I wasn't expecting much but I can see how over the next couple months it will only increase due to the cyclical nature of lash growth. But if you look at my brows they have improved GREATLY! I couldn't afford to get revitabrow so am using it on both and for the first time in 15 years I have a tail!!! So awesome, highly recommend. Will post another update in another month! X
