Review: Essence Goodie Bag

Hi Glamifys,

As many of you know, I was invited to the official launch of Catrice and Essence in Singapore.

Click here for pictures of the event.

I had also reviewed the latest products to hit Catrice shelves recently.

Essence also gave me a goodie bag with their latest must haves! So many things! *excited much*


Before putting on your foundation, try a makeup base to help lengthen the time between touch ups.

The uv base has an SPF 30 and comes in 2 formulas. One is a white ( blends translucent) which is to moisturizer the skin and the other is a purple color control to help even out yellow tones (blends into nothing).

I mix the 2 bases together and I find the dry parts of my face don’t come up patchy over the foundation. The unevenness of my skin tone was better managed with the purple base.

Rrp : not known yet 🙂




Leave the base on for about 2-3 minutes before putting on foundation.

Stay all day 16 hour long lasting makeup liquid foundation has a light to medium buildable coverage. I find that it blends smoothly into the skin giving it a healthy glow. It looks slightly dewy but not the unsightly shine we all want to avoid.

I like this foundation as the yellow undertone fits me perfectly. The liquid foundation does not slip and slide in the humidity as well.



Conceal any other flaws using the duo match2cover concealer. Since you have put on the liquid foundation first, you can do spot concealing to the parts of the face that were not covered with the foundation. This helps you to prevent layers of layer of thick concealer.

Concealer is pigmented and covers darkness and scars well



Mix the 2 colors together to get your perfect shade.

Powder your face and then on to blusher. 🙂

Silky touch blush has recently launched 2 new shades which brings this collection to a total of 6 colors.

It’s soft, smooth, blendable texture makes this such a pleasure to work with.

Just like the Catrice blusher, it is extremely pigmented. So go slow and build up as needed. I never learn my lesson do I? Spent the next 2-3 minutes wiping excess blusher off. Again!


Before you go on to eyeshadows, make sure you prime the lids with I ❤ stage eyeshadow base. It evens out the darkness of the eyelids and helps prevent creasing.

I like how this give me a blank canvas to work with and the veins on my eyelids are perfectly concealed.




If you like sparkly glittery eyes, be sure to check the metal glam collection out. Review and swatches here

I was also given the 3D eyeshadow which contains 2 complementary colors so it saves beginners a headache. No need to figure out which color should go which contour. Essence has done the job for you 🙂



A girl can never have too many mascaras so they say.

Loving the 3 mascaras here. Each works differently and I love to layer each mascara on since mixing and combining seems to do the trick for my lashes.

Lash mania separate the lashes which acts as a good base since whatever volume mascara you use afterwards will not clump. Retails for SGD 5.50



All about curl has a unique curved shape wand which fits the curvature of eye perfectly. Coats even the corner lashes that are usually difficult to reach.



Lashes go wild adds volume like no other. Full lashes just with a few sweeps of this mascara. Retails for SGD 5.50



If you’re one of those who hate lip glosses cause they are tacky and sticky, here is an alternative for you.

The xxxl shine glides on smoothly and does not feel uncomfortable or sticky ❤ !!! What’s better is that there are 14 colors to choose from and since they retail at SGD 3.90 each, you can buy one in every color !



If lip glosses are a bit much for you to go to school with, try the glossy lipbalm.

It tastes and smells so yummy. But please don’t eat it like candy! 😛 tempted but no!

There is a total of 6 colors retailing at SGD 2.50 each.


Essence carries a wide selection of nail polishes and has recently launched another 10 colors adding up to a total of 35 polishes in the collection. Each polish retails for SGD 2.90.

Looking forward to the new sparkle sand effect polishes!!
