Cheap & cheerful | Essence brushes

Who doesn’t love a bargain, and for me there’s nothing more satisfying than a good beauty bargain – especially if the product is great quality too. I love Wilkos for their beauty products, and in particular the European brand Essence. I recently popped into my local store for a bit of a haul and came away with these pretty brushes (among other things).


Setting you back a mere £2.79 for the pink blusher brush, £1.49 for the green eyeliner brush and purple fluffy eye shadow blender these tools are a total bargain, and are actually really good. I personally prefer an angled blusher brush for applying precise colour and find that most brands offer a larger, fluffier style, so this pastel pink number suits me fine and reminds me of my – more expensive – Pur Minerals version. 

Not all Essence items are available online, some are reserved just for store but lots can be purchased from the Wilkos website here. Big recommendations are the lip liners which are a steal at £1 each. Have you picked up any great bargains recently?
