When thinking about holiday stocking stuffers, essence cosmetics comes to mind! This fall/winter season was the first time I was introduced to essence, and since I was at Dashing Diva to get a pedicure, I immediately was drawn to all the essence colour & go nail polish shades. I went with a bright coral (#16) which was long lasting, fast drying, and had a brilliant gel-shine! The polishes are also free of harmful ingredients such as formaldehyde, toluene and emollient phthalate.
There are 18 new and unique essence colour & go shades, from bright pink to classic red, unique shades of grey and blue, dark green and purple as well as shimmering and metallic effects. The best thing about the collection - each polish retails for $1.99! You can fill an entire stocking with nail polish!
essence cosmetics also features lipsticks ($2.99) and lip glosses ($2.49), eyeshadows ($2.49 to $3.99), mascaras ($3.99), concealers ($3.49), powders ($3.49), pencils ($0.99 to $3.49), brushes, sets and more. Some of my favorites include sea my eyes! quattro eyeshadow, Miami's Ink gel eyeliner, extreme volume mascara, Cool Down long lasting eye pencil and Teddy and Behind The Scenes kajal pencils.
