Good Morning beauties,

Essence have a new release that some of you might have noticed in Clicks stores already and they will also be available in DisChem Pharmacies in July.

The collection offers exciting party-proof products that focus on the trendiest colour of 2016: grey. Elegant grey shades meet upon rosy-red shades and merge into a perfect union for the retro-glam of the 1920’s. The it-pieces include an eyeshadow palette with seven powdery shades and various effects, a smokey eye pencil with a spring-loaded sponge applicator and corner lashes for fabulous lash highlights. The Charleston style hair bandeau perfectly rounds off the expressive look. Let’s celebrate… with essence!

  3. I am loving how the greys all look. I have a bit of a hard time now trying to not associate the word grey with "50 Shades". It's difficult, but one day I won't. :D The polish on the far right, "Perly Matte" red color -- it intrigues me.
