Continue reading Essence Mosaic Compact Powder (01 Sunkissed Beauty) REVIEW
Recently during the Nykaa sale, I picked up few makeup items, which includes two products from Essence as well. I love Essence cosmetics, they make affordable drugstore makeup with great quality as well. Sadly, Essence is only available online up-to some extend. I wish they would soon start their stores here in India as well.
Shade 1: It is a matte bronzer with slightly warm undertones. It is perfect for bronzing up the face or giving a slight natural tan look.
Price: Rs.349 for 10g
INGRIDIENTS: Talc, Isopropyl Isostearate, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Isocetyl Stearoyl Stearate, Diethylhexyl Syringylidene Malonate, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Silica, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Butylparaben, Ethylparaben, Isobutylparaben, Propylparaben, Parfum (Fragrance), Hexyl Cinnamal, May Contain: CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499 (Iron Oxides), CI 77891 (Titanium Dioxide).
PACKAGING: The packaging is very slick and compact. It is not flimsy at all. But it lacks a mirror and an applicator.
SHADE & PIGMENTATION: This is an ultra fine compact and contains four shades which are embedded in a mosaic form.
Shade 2: This one is totally my skin tone shade and can be used to set any part of the face.
Shade 3: This one is a pink tone highlighter with slight shimmer reflects. The shimmer is very subtle and not glowy at all, it gives a "glow from within" kind of look.
Shade 4: This one is a warm highlighter with yellow undertones, perfect for highlighting the highest points of the face.
The pigmentation is decent and perfect at its price. It is not totally matte but not glittery at all. It has a little satin finish which gives a beautiful glow. If you use all the four shades mixed together, you can have a slightly bronzed up face and it looks amazing. I really loved this one. Totally recommend it to everyone.
This is a great compact powder which has multiple uses. It can be used as a bronzer, highlighter, to set the contour and highlighted areas and also as an eyeshadow. It is very light and fine compact and stays up-to 4.5 hours without a setting spray. If you use with a primer underneath and full face of glam, then the pigmentation surely goes up and stays for like 2 hours more than the normal time period. The compact is very bendable and is not at all chunky.
It even smells like coconuts and it is really a good fragrance, not too harsh but not too low, just decent amount. And the most important factor is that Essence is cruelty free. Totally recommend it!
