Mini Makeup Haul - Essence; Maybelline

Last week, I headed to one of the pharmacies to get some purple-toned nail-polishes, but ended up getting a little more than I planned!
The initial thing I went for where some nail polishes, and I ended up getting two really great shades by Maybelline - Pink/Rose Innocence (Light Purple) and Social/Queen's Berry (Dark Purple) - €6.69 each.

 The colours are really great, even though I found the Social/Queen's Berry slightly darker when more than one coat was applied. They're the first nail polishes I have from this brand, but they will definitely not be the last! It is really easy to apply, and definitely lives up to the 7 days wear, it states on the bottle.

After I chose my nail polishes, I found a practically full essence stall which to me was heaven! I have never seen a full essence stand, as their makeup is sold really fast, and I personally hate looking at few remaining items! So anyway with loads of products to checkout and compare, I finally ended up buying a mascara, gel eyeliner and lipstick.

With regards to mascara, I decided to try out the Get Big Lashes, Volume Curl Mascara - which is great if you are after maximum volume and curved lashes! Being just €2.50, I must admit that I was extremely impressed with the results! I love the brush, as it made application really easy and it lashes did not stick together!! YAAAY!! I be definitely be repurchasing this, and probably will look for a day mascara from their  range, as quality and prices are really great!

I then picked out a gel eyeliner. Having never tried gel eyeliners, I was really curious to try it out. I picked out the Essence Gel Eyeliner  -02 London Baby. This gel eyeliner comes from a collection of four different shades, but I chose this as it is a dark taupe shade, which looks great and does not have the harshness of a black colour. The price of this was just €3.30! and once again I was truly impressed by the quality and how  smooth and easy it was to control it. 

My third and last essence product was a lipstick - No 12 Sparkling Miracle (€2.19). Its got this really great purplish/dark pink glittery shade. Having never tried essence lipsticks and never worn this out yet, I cannot say how long it lasts on the lips, but I definitely love the shade! Personally not a massive fan of the packaging, but for the price of it, I cannot really grumble!

Overall I am extremely happy with my purchases and look forward to trying everything out properly!
