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!

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder Review

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder 8

Essence Voluminizing Lash Powder ($1.99) has proven completely out of my reach. I have an Ulta located about, mmmm, an hour away from me? If you’re from New York you probably know the one I mean. The only way I get there is when I head to Woodbury because it’s just too much of a bother just to go there to hit up Ulta.

Ulta carries Essence but anytime I go there I never find cool products like the Voluminizing Lash Powder.

One of the best parts about blogging beauty is you meet and become friends with so many fantastic people. This review wouldn’t be possible without my fellow geeky gamer Cult of Taupe. She gifted me with this recently, completely unexpectedly.

Thanks Crystal

Let’s take a peek at this!

I’m quite eager to get to the review.

Essence Sun Club Summer 2011 Collection

Fright Night Criss Angel David Tennant

Morning!

Summer’s almost here kids! w00t! Any blockbusters you’re wanting to see this Summer? This morning I was looking at the trailer for Fright Night and proceeded to yell in outrage that Colin Farrell had more scenes in it than Ten. No fair people….this is his first time in a Hollywood flick (HP doesn’t count) , give him some air time plus we are all lovin’ on that rather rad Criss Angel look he got going on there (not!). Yeah, well, after seeing their clothing of choice for him I’m thinking we need to haul this pic back out again!

Sun Club

Regardless, I’m such a fond fan of the original I’m really looking forward to the hot mess of a remake, it could be good…maybe?

How about you?

Any movies you’re looking forward to this Summer?

Or better yet what Summer 2011 Makeup Collections are you hyped about?

My beauty budget side wants to peep Essence Cosmetics Sun Club Collection, it looks cute!
