Every woman - and even some men - covet the best beauty products that you can currently buy on the market. However, not everyone has the time or the money to be able to make it to the high street and splash out on a whole set of makeup kits.
This is where Essence Beauty aims to make up the difference. Essence is a beauty magazine that wants to straddle the large financial gap between the high-end beauty products and the average person on the street who earns average wages.
Curated by some of the country’s leading beauty experts, this magazine gives you a wide range of samples from the high street that you can test out on yourself.
Whether it is mascara, lipstick, eye shadow or a host of other items, you’ll have everything that you need for that magazine level of style.
But what exactly is in the Essence Beauty Box? How much can you be looking to pay for this item? Are the contents inside worth the price? Should you buy your make-up individually or would you rather have the bundle?
How much are the shipping costs and is it preferable to have these items delivered to your door rather than going to the shop yourself?
Well, if you have answers to these questions and a whole lot more, then we would suggest that you keep reading. We’ve got a comprehensive review of this box and whether it is worth subscribing to.
If you like your high-street lipsticks and eyeshadow and rouge, then we would certainly nudge you in the direction of Essence.
What Is The Essence Beauty Box?
If you have ever struggled to find the right foundation to match your skin tone or the correct eye shadow for your eyes, then we would certainly recommend that Essence beauty box.
Essence is a beauty magazine that has sought to rectify these issues. Included in this subscription box are some of the very best lipstick, eyeshadows, mascaras and even hair conditioners. You can choose from a whole bunch of some of the best make-up that money can buy.
For a single payment of around $15 a month, you’ll get a wide range of make-ups delivered right to your door. This not only cuts out the hassle of having to traipse up and down the aisles of your supermarket, but it will also save you quite a bit of money on your monthly make-up purchases.
Because what is more frustrating than shopping for makeup? Not everyone has the time or the patience to do so. This way, Essence has curated a box that might not have everything that you want, but certainly increases the chances of you finding the perfect lip, eye or hair product.
These products are new and innovative, so you won’t have to worry about your make-up being too hard to use or not being compatible with your skin. We would definitely recommend that you try this box for at least a few months, as there will be something that you like in there at some point.
What Is Inside?
Some of the products that you can get vary greatly, but you can be certain that they are all reputable high-street brands. Here is a short list of some of the products that we got in your Essence Beauty box this month:
- Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Body Lotion
- Fekkai Hair Fragrance Mist
- Black Opal Color Splurge Luxe Matte Lipstick
- Smash box Full Exposure Mascara
- Devacurl No-Poo & One Conditioner Decadence
We can tell you that the lotion left our skin feeling incredibly smooth with a spicy scent that you can be sure will leave you with all the scent of Morocco.
The fragrance mist is a great little addition to your usual hair care routine. This will leave your hair feeling silky and smooth, giving it an airy and fragrant odor. We would definitely recommend that you have this one for your make-up kit.
The matte lipstick is not only smooth on your lips, but it is very easy to apply. This comes in a wonderful opal color that will definitely be an asset to anyone who is out on the dancefloor for a great night out. You’ll want people asking: “Who’s that in the eye-catching opal lipstick?”
As for the mascara, it can be a little gloopy, but it is very easy to apply. Some users have said that this is one of the best mascaras they have used, coming in an ergonomic design that you can be sure will fit comfortably even in the smallest of handbags.
Finally, the No-Poo conditioner leaves our hair feeling silky and soft, even after a small application. All you need to do is squirt a small glob of this conditioner into your hand and you will have everything that you need for voluminous locks.
However, this is just one of the boxes that we received. Next month you’ll get a host of different products to try out. If you are addicted to beauty products, then we would certainly recommend that you subscribe to this box for at least 6 months to see what products they have in store.
Our Final Say
We would highly recommend the Essence Beauty Box if you want to shake up your make-up kit a little. This comes with some of the finest accessories on the beauty market, giving you everything that you need to look good on the dancefloor or in the office.
The only drawback of this box is the fact that there is such a variety, that the likelihood of you getting something that doesn’t suit your skin tone or eye color is higher than usual. Apart from that, you should definitely splash out on the Essence Beauty box.
