Guest review of Essence quattro eyeshadow palette, nail polish and longlasting lipgloss


You may remember that I recently looked for a guest reviewer for some new Essence products on Fluff and Fripperies. New beauty blogger Magda (check out her blog here!) has been trialling them on your behalf, and here's what she had to say.

"Hi! My name is Magda from Make-up Madness. Emma kindly sent me some Essence products for review. So here we go!



Here is what I got:
  • Quattro eyeshadow palette in 04, ‘Oh-so-cute’
  • Stay with me longlasting lipgloss in 01 ‘Me & my ice-cream’
  • Multi dimension XXXL shine nail polish in 76 ‘Cool and the gang’
  • Colour&go quick drying nail polish in 37 ‘Just rock it!’



Starting with the nail polishes: I love both of the colours. Cool and the gang is a gorgeous navy-purple-blue. It applies easily because the consistency is quite liquid. I needed two coats to achieve a nice colour. Unfortunately it chips very easily and I would have to paint my nails every day with this enamel. I haven’t used any top coat so maybe that’s the reason.



The second nail polish ‘Just rock it’ is navy blue, and looks great on my short nails. It claims to be fast drying, but it didn’t dry that fast for me. And again, it chips very easily. But loving the colour! Great for nights out!



The shadows in the quattro palette are all shimmery. The consistency is very creamy, thanks to the new formula. They lasted all day on my eyes and did not move! They are very easy to apply and blend. An absolute pleasure to work with. I might go and get some more of these!

Below is a makeup look I’ve done with all the colours.




And onto my very favourite of the bunch: the lipgloss. It is my favourite at the moment and I don’t leave home without it. It has a very nice consistency - a bit creamy , not sticky and smells like bubblegum. Yummy! The big plus is the applicator, which easily glides on the lips leaving a nice coat of colour. It is not opaque, just gives a hint of colour, but that’s what makes it ideal for the day and night. And for younger ladies out there, great for school!





Overall I am really amazed with the quality of the products and will gladly use them on a daily basis."

Thanks Magda!
