Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 Glitter Eyeliner Review & Swatches

Essence Breaking Dawn Glitter Eyeliner

Essence Breaking Dawn 2 Glitter Eyeliner is one of two new sparkling eyeliners available for a limited time launched with Essence’s new Breaking Dawn Park 2 Makeup Collection.

Anyone remember being obsessed with Urban Decay Heavy Metal Liners? I couldn’t be alone in that addiction…right? Anyone? Although at this point, I realize a heavily encrusted lash line full of glitter isn’t exactly the height of makeup sophistication but hey, I had fun with it and that’s what matters right?

No worries though Essence’s Glitter Eyeliner is a little more subtle.

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!

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss Review & Swatches

Essence Breaking Dawn Lipgloss

Beauty budget brand, Essence, has created a Twilight Breaking Dawn 2 Collection to celebrate the release of the movie. This isn’t the first time Essence has embraced Twilight as they have had another collection inspired by the film.

I generally like Essence and although some of my fandom has cooled when it comes to Twilight I still like the overall idea of this collection. It’ll be a little tricky to locate as Ulta is the only US store I know of that sells Essence but keep an eye out for it in store.

I went to Ulta this weekend and they sadly, didn’t have the collection. I have my eye on the bright red blush that was released with the collection.

My other lemming? The Breaking Dawn Lipgloss which I was lucky enough to get a sample of!

Essence Volumizing Lash Powder Launches at Ulta

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder

I know some of you were interested in hauling the Essence Volumizing Lash Powder I recently reviewed. I personally haven’t located it at my own Ulta store however, it has launched online and is available now at Ulta.com for $3.49. There is free shipping available on orders of $25 or more using promo code Holiday2012 should you wish to grab a few products along with the lash powder.

In other news….

All is well here! My lights are on and there was very minimal damage around my own neighborhood. I wish I could say the same for others. I hope if you’re on the East Coast that you fared just as luckily! My thoughts are with you today and throughout the week as we clean up this mess that Sandy left behind.

Cheap Thrills: Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base ($3.49) is newly launched eyeshadow primer to the Ulta Essence Collection.

Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

Essence designed this to be used like Benefit’s Stay Never Stray as you can use it as an eyeshadow primer or a prep and prime for concealer. The creamy texture promises a crease-free, longer wear for both eyeshadows and concealers.

I’m quite interested to try it as I am currently between eyeshadow primers at the moment but not sure I should invest too much hope into a under $4 eyeshadow primer.

Think it’ll be awesome?

One wonders!

Available now at Ulta and Ulta.com
