So… I Actually Won Something


Today’s blog post is an exciting one for me because… I actually won something! When I was contacted by the lovely Luchae from My Spreadsheet Brain and told that I had won an Essence Hamper I was overjoyed! I cannot wait to show you what is inside!

First of all, everything came in this clear bag which is going to be perfect for me when I travel. All of my toiletries can go in it so I don’t have to worry about anything making a mess!

I literally received everything that I need to create a full face of makeup which makes me very happy!

Essence-min (1)

In the bag was the Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Make-Up and Concealer in the shade Ivory Beige as well as the Get Picture Ready Brightening Concealer in Ivory as well. I am actually really excited to try this concealer because I looked in the mirror yesterday morning and saw huge bags under my eyes – hopefully this will hide them! Along with those products I received the Get Picture Ready Long-Lasting Compact Make-Up in Ivory which also comes with a little sponge.

For the eyes I received Essence eye shadow in the shade Frozen Toffee from The Metals range. I have always admired this range but never bought anything from it! I also received a contouring eyeshadow set in the shade Mauve meets Marshmallows – how cute is that name?! It also came with an Essence Contouring Eye Pencil which I cannot wait to try.

Lastly I received a 2 in 1 matt lipstick and liner in the shade Make Some Noise. I have never seen these in the shops before but the colour is absolutely gorgeous!


Thank you once again to Luchae for my wonderful prize. I look forward to trying everything out. Would you like me to do a makeup look with all of these products? Or perhaps review one or two of them in particular? Let me know in the comments below!
