Essence released a Jurassic World collection around the time of the release of the third Jurassic World film, and since I love dinosaurs and the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World trilogies, I obviously had to pick up this collection.
The three make-up products in the collection was an eyeshadow palette in 01 Have A Raw_some Day!, a highlighter in 01 Extra Crispy, and a Ph-reacting lip glow in 01 Runnn!.
The palette is a cute little 8-pan palette with a half neutral half colourful colour story. I wore the palette here, which was actually on the day I went to watch Jurassic World: Dominion at the cinema.
The highlighter is very cute as well. It might look a little dark for fair skin tones, but it did work on me. It was just a more natural highlight.
I’m always a little sceptical when it comes to Ph-reacting lip products, but this one is probably the prettiest one I’ve tried so far. On the lips, it turns into a very pretty glowy pink, and it leaves a very nice stain behind.
The collection also came with a bunch of tools. I picked up the makeup sponge in 01 Bingo! Dino dna. I haven’t tried it yet though.
I also got the two face brushes; the highlighter brush in 01 Must Be A Fast Runner! and the powder brush in 01 Stay In The Car!.
Lastly, I purchased the eye brush set & makeup bag in 01 Bigger, Louder, More Teeth!. I think Essence makes really nice, affordable brushes. And these are just so pretty too. I love the packaging on the whole collection, but pink and orange is one of my favourite colour combos, so that might have something to do with it.
