Essence Cosmetics is back with some brand new products launches for us to go crazy over. As you know, with the new season comes warmer weather and, even better, makeup launches.  Today I have some of the latest from Essence Cosmetics, from their “lights of orient” collection press release.


Oriental Beauty Express! Let Essence take you on an exciting journey into the world of 1001 Arabian Nights with the new trend edition “lights of orient” from March 2017 and dive into the oriental culture. The pulsating bustle around the souks, desert landscapes with magnificent Bedouin tents and the temperamental rhythm of the belly dancers – the unique flair fascinates all visitors. And the oriental look with deep black eyeliner and golden highlights is also impressive. The colour scheme of this bronzing edition is as warm as the Arabian sun with cream, gold, copper and various nuances of red. There are many treasures just waiting to be discovered, including a beautiful bronzer in an oriental design with a matt bronzing texture and shimmering golden powder in the center. The matt lipsticks in trendy oxblood as well as two additional red tones and the golden body tattoos are particularly eye-catching on tanned skin. The body splash with a warm, floral fragrance provides a boost of freshness on hot, sunny days. Essence loves… Arabian Nights!

  1. I don’t know how I feel about the whole oriental theme, but okay…It is slightly reminiscent of the MAC Vibe Tribe episode. The bronzer and highlighter duo look promising though, especially since they claim that the bronzer is matte.
