Shopping at Wilkos and trying new brands

Hey lovelies,

I had a mini shopping trip a month or so ago. Finally getting it up on here!

I don't normally shop in Wilkos, I'm an Asda girl if I need my toiletries but when I found out that they stock Essence Make Up I had to go have a nosy.

make up products from eye stuff to foundation

Eek I bought some good lil bits if I do say so myself.

Starting with Essence (the reason I finally entered the doors of Wilkos!) and I picked up a super thin felt tip eyeliner (look how sharp that point is!)

a super thin liner to create the perfect winged liner

Plus an eyeshadow set which were metallic/satin type shades, xxxl lipgloss, and the I love stage eye base.

a mix of products from essence include eye primer, shadow, lipgloss and liner

First off the eyeshadow base is amazing! I'm in love with the formula and I think it was around £2.50 so super affordable. The liner is fab as its so thin and sharp. Eyeliner on fleek? Yassss. Hahaha. 

The lipgloss is nice, not amazing but nice and the colour is more sheer than it looks in the tube. Sadly the shadows were a bit of a flop for me. Swatched good on my hand but when trying to apply them on the lids the colour payoff is rubbish in my opinion. Shame really but only a couple of quid so I'm not crying into my salad. Lol.

match perfection foundation and eyeliner brush from wilkos

Next I bought an liner brush, no real reason I just liked the pink. Lol. The foundation is the Rimmel Match Perfection which I will be doing a review on but so far it's a thumbs up from me! :)

false lashes and fancy brush holder from wilkos

Finally I found these pen holders which  are perfect for my brushes plus look cute and I bought some false lashes only £1 each which is cheap as chips, as I'm trying to practice applying them. Still a work in progress. But I will soldier on! Ha

I did buy a paddle brush as well for only £1 (no picture as its now full of hair which looks yack lol) I will say, it's the best brush I've used and I have the original tangle teaser! Winner! 

Overall I bought some pretty nice bits from Wilkos. I think my trip was a success and I've found some new products which I love!

Have you bought any goodies from Wilkos lately? Want to you think of Essence?

Much Love,

  1. I do think with eyeshadow palettes you do have to spend a little bit more just to get that extra pigmentation. A good drugstore brand if you can get it is Revolution makeup its quite cheap and their eyeshadows are quite good, not extremely long lasting but they are pigmented! If you don't know what to do with the brush you could easily use it for an eyebrow filler as well :) xx

  2. Wahoo! these are amazing product. Looks worth to try out. Would get for me as well. Great review.
