Essence is (recently) now available at Ulta Cosmetics nationwide and on Ulta.com. I saw the brand online and immediately wanted this product and few other things from the line. I only ended up buying this and their Nail Art Stampy Set (which I will review later- think cheaper Konad!). The bronzer was $2.99, and I didn't see any products above $4.99!
I don't know what it is about makeup pearls, whether it be foundation, blush or bronzer, there's just something so elegant about them to me. I remember as a little girl, watching my mom use Blush Pearls, and being so envious. I always used to play with them when she was busy!
Here's what the product looks like:
(I didn't see more than one shade?)
And here's what it looks like applied over foundation on my wrist. The picture doesn't do it justice. It isn't an in-your-face bronzer. It's subtle, yet gives you such a wonderful healthy glow and is totally buildable. It is slightly shimmery, but in the dewy way, not glittery. I love it. I hate most bronzers because they're all either too glittery or too dark. This is my holy grail bronzer!!!!
Rating: 5/5 I would repurchase.
