I love nothing more than a good bargain and when you present me with a makeup bargain, adding in my love of makeup, I get more than a little excited.
Makeup trends change quite a bit throughout the year so I can't really justify spending a tonne on makeup when I can be a little fickle with my product preferences.
Essence are a budget makeup brand that have long been a love of mine due to their good quality products, great pricing and regular releases.
It seems like Essence are always launching a new Trend Edition collection, this time it's titled Road Trip, so I thought you guys would like a sneak peek!
Essence are embracing that Summer spirit and are taking inspiration from the legendary Route 66 with this release.
I love that this collection features practical multi-use and duo products, making packing for Summer holidays easy and showing how true to Summer this collection is.
With a warm colour scheme consisting of yellow, pink, burgundy, beige, and blue, this collection ensures plenty of fun.
The first duo is the Eyeshadow + Eyeliner, with one side being a shimmering eyeshadow and the other a creamy eyeliner.
Coming in 2 different colour combinations, these duos are all you need to stand out from the crowd!
The next duo is the Blush + Highlighter, all you need to create a gorgeous, fresh complexion.
It's soft texture blends easily to give your complexion a rosy blush and beautiful shimmer.
Next up are the Mini Sheer Lipsticks, tiny sticks with a medium colour coverage that will colour your lips and make them feel wonderfully smooth with a velvet finish.
These are perfect for when you're on the go!
The next product is the All Round Balm, a multi-talent that will pamper lips, hands and nails as well as elbows and feet.
This little helper can be applied on any dry areas of skin, making it a festival essential this season!
For the nails, Essence know that colours and effects are an absolute must-have!
Four different shades are ready to launch in burgundy, blue, beige and pink with four different effects: leather, asphalt, gasoline and thermo.
For unique street styles!
Lastly, we have the styling set which offers everything you need on the road, a small blush/powder brush, an eyeshadow/eyeliner applicator and tweezers.
Coming in a practical zipper bag with mirror, you can touch up your look anywhere!
The Essence Road Trip Collection will be available in stores, including Primark and Pharmacies, from July to September 2014.
