I was recently able to try out some of the new essence cosmetics Spring/Simmer 2016 Collection. I ADORE essence cosmetics. Their line has great quality and an excellent price point. When I first tried it out, was so surprised at how well the products performed. We are talking high end products at a price point that is so affordable. Read on for my review of the products I tried as well as what is in store for the Spring/Summer season.Read on for some prime information into the world of essence cosmetics Spring/Summer 2016...

This foundation with a lightweight feel gives a flawless and natural finish. Get the feeling of no makeup with glycerin and Vitamin E. Suitable for every skin type.

Take a light bronzing powder and a beautiful highlighter, put them together and you get Contouring Powder, which is useful (and might I add very popular right now) to help you add some depth of cheekbones, think out the nose and jawline, etc. I like this one a lot because the color are useful, not too dark and the highlighter works really well. It comes in two shades, Light and Medium. This product is available at www.ulta.com.
