Essence The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 Makeup Collection

Essence has created a limited edition Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2 Makeup Collection to celebrate the movie release as you know. This post is just in time considering the movie is out later this week.

Who’s going?

It’s ok, no shame in my game, I admit I’ll be heading in to watch. The movies kinda killed the books for me. I liked the first film but think they went overboard with each one they made to the point that it turned into a little too much of a cheesefest. But hey, cheesy movies are good for the soul sometimes.

Don’t knock this collection until you tried it. If you can put aside the cheesiness it’s associated with you might just find a product or two to love from the launch!

Take a look!

You NEED: E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush

I’m the type that has applied concealer using my fingers for years and years and years. I’ve never met a concealer brush I like to use. Most have thin bristles and don’t really do very much to get concealer into place.

After discovering Sephora’s Concealer Brush my life changed but prior to that and forever after my main concealer brush squeeze is the three buck E.L.F. Studio Concealer Brush.

You NEED it!
