If you're wondering what's in store for Spring, 2013 from German beauty brand, Essence Cosmetics, then prepare to dazzle with bright  neon colors balanced against subtle shades of nudes.  The result is a fresh look as reborn as the season.

Start with your eyes and their Essence 3D Eyeshadows.  You might want to start with (04) Irresistible Caramel Cream.  This gleams with intensity in a golden-brown and beige-apricot highlight.  

Then again, you may want to go bolder with (06) Irresistible Mermaid Kiss, swimming with appeal from the glistening teal to a vibrant turquoise.  Going more dramatic is easy just by wetting your brush.

Closest to my wrist in the next photo is 06 Irresistible Mermaid Kiss and 04 Irresistible Caramel Cream.

I also tried their Essence Match2Cover Cream Concealer that comes in two shades of light and medium beige.  This product provided decent coverage for lightening the under eye area.  It also spread well and didn't seem to accumulate in any fine lines.

Eyes are not complete unless you have a great mascara like the Essence I Love Extreme Volume Mascara also sent along.  This has to be one of the best mascaras you can pick up that can give some high-end brands a run for the money.  

The brush is easy to maneuver and separates lashes beautifully to give you a thick curtain of black lashes. Another thing I loved was its gentle formulation that was perfect for sensitive eyes prone to allergies like mine.

Last in my package was the Essence All About Matt! Fixing Compact Powder.  This is white translucent setting powder that once you take your big, fluffy brush to it will keep your face looking amazing for hours without any shine.

Do look into Essence Cosmetics.  I  suggest starting with that excellent mascara because it is fabulous! Look here to find where to buy.
