This is part 2 of my focus on Essence Cosmetics. This is about the nail polishes and other miscellaneous items.
I've found Essence does great nail polishes. There are some misses (i've found 1 or 2 that are streaky and don't last for long), but normally i know i'll love anything i pick up from the brand. They have a range of effects and they try to keep up with the latest trends. Limited Editions (LE) can get repetitive at times (same colours) but the regular range (RR) have a great range of colours and styles. Any way, i'll let you make up your own mind.

As you can see, Essence do a huge range of coloura and styles, and you can find something to suit almost everyone.
Essence also bring out a few different things in Australia, like....
Perfume! This came out with the Circus Circus LE, and is called (surprisingly) Circus Circus. It's in a gorgeous bottle, with a beautiful maroon spray thingy (yep, very technical here), and is a very sweet, fruity perfume. It was sold for $9.90 here, and for the price it is a great perfume (overseas there are more perfumes).
There have also been handcreams here, which smelt beautiful and were non greasy.
So there you go, Essence as a whole. A great budget brand, with something for everyone.
