Whoop! Finally Essence hits the UK in a big way. After a launch in four Wilkos stores and much talk of a soon to happen expansion of the range across the UK, Manchester Arndale Centre gets its own Essence Pop Up Store. Lots of pics for you to look at below and some more info on the store.
As you can see, there is a wide range of Essence make up – from polish to eye pencils and glittery shadows. If you are familiar with Essence from the continent, then you will be familiar with the layout. The central inserts have the trend editions which are the monthly (or thereabouts) limited edition releases.Here you can see the extensive nail range, from base coats and toppers, to glitters and cremes, plus nail art kits and introductory stamping kits. The range is available for viewing on the website too! Click here.
This pop also had the current Trend Edition on it – in this case Beach Crusiers, a collection of beachey shades and glittery textured polishes. (better image below)Then I took some close ups of the trend editions for you – this one is Bloom me up!
They also had the Brasil trend edition out in the main stand. I have to say, I am quite impressed, a good range and the price point is superb. Most polishes start about £1.49, I got some eyeliners at £1.99 each and a top coat for £1.99, so you can make your money go quite far and pick up some shades or looks that you might have avoided before.
