Essence launches in New Zealand!

Provided for review

Hey lovelies,

I have a quick preview to share with you today because Essence has finally launched in New Zealand! Those with a keen eye for a bargain may have noticed their stands popping up over the last year (I've been a frequent visitor to the stands at the Kilbirnie and Upper Hutt Farmers stores) and the brand is getting closer to launching in even more locations this year. To celebrate, I have a bunch of goodies to share with you and I'd love to know what you'd like to see full reviews for first!

  1. I like the lipstick color, it's gorgeous :) would love to try out this brand, heard so many amazing things about it. I wish it's available in Farmers Albany, I probably only go to Glenfield once a year hahah and never ever go down to Manukau.

  2. Hopefully it will come to Farmers Albany soon for you Kay :) In the meantime, Price Wise Direct, which I linked in the post has Essence and they ship flat rate $7.50 or free with orders over $50, so that could be a good way to go!
