Essence Breaking Dawn Part 2 Glitter Eyeliner Review & Swatches

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

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!
