The Essence cosmetics brand has always been a favourite of mine. From their 100% cruelty-free policy which means they don’t test on animals to their adorable packaging, their products are a win! Paula & I attended their new product launch event just a few days ago, held at The Mount Nelson hotel, one of the most beautiful venues in Cape Town. If you follow me on social media, you may have seen a couple of images and short videos on SnapChat of the amazing Alice in Wonderland themed tea party that the Cosmetix SA team had recreated for us. I was so blown away at how beautiful our table was set beneath sparkling chandeliers that hung from the garden’s trees (ah-mazing!).

The team introduced all the exciting new products that would be stocked on all Essence cosmetics stands in store this Fall/Winter 2016. Just as makeup trends emerge and new looks are created, Essence has designed and built products to represent this growth. As the brand improves by keeping up with the beauty industry, they stay true to their affordability and popular fashionable look. A few of their newest products I’m particularly excited to try is their Makeup Fixing spray, Shape Your Face Contouring palette and the Essence Eyebrow gel (finally!)

Essence Cosmetics can be found at all Clicks & Dischem stores nationwide.
