Today’s review is going to be on an Essence face make-up. There is no particular category mention on the pack, so I call it “makeup”. Let’s jump into the review.
The foundation gives you a perfect, smooth complexion and looks wonderfully natural. its silky formula spreads evenly to reliably cover any impurities or redness. for a pleasant feeling on your skin and a fantastic, fresh complexion! dermatologically tested.

03 Medium Beige
My Experience with Essence Soft and Natural Long Lasting Make-Up:
The product comes in a small beige colored tube. It is a nice, sturdy and travel friendly packaging with a screw cap. According to its quality and quantity, this is a definitely worth the price. It has a very rare and strong vanilla-like smell. But, I don’t like this smell at all as it feels overpowering.
This product comes with three shades. I have the shade Medium Beige. This is the 2nd shade from the shade range. I have olive-medium skin tone. I mostly prefer a yellow undertoned shade. This medium beige shade is not exact yellow; it has more of an orange undertone. But, it matches my skin nicely. Still, with only three shades, it is quite difficult to get a perfect match.
This one has a thick, creamy consistency. It glides smoothly on my skin and provides a soft, moisturized skin. It is not a creamy, high coverage foundation yet it feels as soft as a BB cream/CC cream, which provides a decently soft and smooth skin. The application of this makeup is very smooth and it feels light on skin. I have oily skin and during winter I have some dry patches around my nose. So it keeps my skin soft without making it more dry. But, if you have dry skin, it will not provide enough hydration. It has a velvety matte finish. It can control my facial shine and can keep face oil-free. It gives a very natural look and never looks cakey on me. But, it will look cakey on too much layering.
Essence make-up is really good for daily use. It provides a nice coverage for normal skin. I don’t have many imperfections on my skin these days, so it looks good on me. It can nicely even out my skin tone and it can also reduce redness. It is not a high coverage foundation; it provides medium coverage. It also covers up dark circle upto 80%. It works good to cover minimal spots or uneven skin tone. But the 2nd layer can cover up the skin nicely. It makes my skin fresh and even with a matte texture. I don’t need any compact over it. It stays nicely on my face. It doesn’t crease either.
The staying power is just lovely of this make-up. It stays for 6-7 hours on my face. It never looks dull after that. It still looks fresh and glowy. After 4-5 hrs, my T zone gets oily, but it is a normal problem with oily skinned people. I really like the staying power and how it looks even after 5 hrs. If you have dry skin, I am sure that it will stay longer. It does not transfer a lot and stays perfectly on skin.
Overall this is such a pretty make-up for oily skinned people. It looks good in photographs too. In this image, I have used this product with some compact around my T-zone only. And, it looks flawless.
