NEW Essence Permanent Range Products

New Products Essence

Right, ladies!  Let’s get our party pants on!  Nothing gets me more excited that seeing a budget-friendly beauty brand expand their permanent range with not one…not two…but a whole lot of new products!  I must admit, essence and Catrice are my 2 favourite affordable brands at the moment because they constantly launch new (and rather unique) product ranges and gorgeous limited edition collections.  Today we’ll be taking a look at all the new products that have been added to the essence permanent range.  There’s a lot to get through, so let’s jump right in!

I’ve already seen the new products at my local Dis-Chem store, but I imagine some of the new products will also be making their way to Clicks stores.  I just find Dis-Chem stores always have a bigger variety of products because their stands are larger than the Clicks ones.  The entire new collection is also available online at

One thing is for sure, I’ll be walking out of Dis-Chem this week with a bag full of new essence goodies to test and review.  Fortunately their products are affordable, so my bank balance should be okay after my little shopping spree.

Don’t forget to let me know in the comments section below which products you are most excited about – I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new collection of products.  I’ll be sure to share my favourites at the end of this post as well.

Please note: The below are not reviews, they are just product descriptions.


Essence All I Need Concealer Palette Soft Touch Mousse Concealer

…All I Need Concealer Palette (R67,50) ♥ This concealer palette offers 5 different colours , you can mix them to suit every skin tone.  Pink and yellow are complementary colours to purple, that means these correctors will help to reduce dark circles under the eyes.  Green neutralises redness (remember to apply correctors under your foundation) and the lighter and darker beige shades have a mattifying effect.  The creamy, powdery texture is easy to apply and blend.  Available in 1 shade.

How amazing do all these new products from essence look?  As mentioned, I’ve already seen most of these products at my local Dis-Chem store.  But don’t fret if the range isn’t at your Dis-Chem store yet, I’m sure it will be there soon!  If you’re more of an online shopper, then you can purchase these new items on or in the Dis-Chem online store.

Ok, so here is a list of the products I am most excited about:

♥  Soft Touch Mousse Concealer – I think this is such a cute idea, a mini jar filled with a whipped concealer.

♥  Shape Your Face Contouring Palette – I’m holding thumbs that contour shade won’t be too warm-toned.

♥  Blush Balls – I kind of want both blushes, but the coral one is definitely more my type of shade.

♥  Mosaic Blush – How stunning are they?  I have my eye on the second and last shades.

♥  Eyebrow Gel Colour & Shape – I’m very intrigued by this…will it be as good as my trusty MAC Fluidline Brow Gelcreme?

♥  2-in -1 Eyeshadow & Liners – The neutral shades are top of my list, but that purple also looks rather pretty.

♥  The Velvets Eyeshadows – I’ll have to swatch these in-store first, but that purple-mauve shade, the chocolate brown shade, and even that baby blue shade all look gorgeous.

♥  Prettifying Lip Oil – Sounds very similar to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil, doesn’t it?

♥  BB Beauty Balm Lipglosses – Love the packaging, I’m keen to see what the pigmentation is like and if they’re sticky.

♥  Velvet Stick Matt Lip Colour – We definitely need more matte lip products in South Africa, hopefully these last well on the lips.

♥  Concealer & Make-Up Sponges – Just because they’re so darn cute!!

♥  Keep It Perfect! Make-Up Fixing Spray  – I kind of wish I had known about this makeup setting spray when I wrote my ‘Affordable Makeup Starter Kit’ blog post.

♥  Gummy Touch Top Coat – Just because it sounds so interesting!

♥  Studio Nails Pro White Active – Who doesn’t want healthy-looking white nails?  Me, please!

And what about you?  Are there any specific products you’ve added to your ‘To Buy’ list?



  1. Kelly 18 April 2016 / 09:51

    Oooh weee!! These products look so amazing and fun! Essence is really a great brand, especially considering their price tags on all their products. Love their packaging, everything looks sooo interesting that I may end up buying things I wouldn’t even use x_x I actually went looking for the all that greys collection that you mentioned on your products popping up blog recently, looking for the pearly matt nail polishes featured in the collection. Unfortunately, it wasn’t even available :( I’m still going to keep an eye out though, hopefully I find it before it’s discontinued seeing as it’s a limited edition range. Thanks for the post Luzanne, really appreciate it :)

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:40

      I 100% agree – you can’t beat that price point! 😀 Don’t worry, I also (very often) get sucked into buying products only because the parckaging is so darn cute! I also haven’t seen the limited edition collections from Essence or Catrice yet, but I’ll be sure to tweet / Facebook post / Instagram post when I see them in-store. :) I don’t think the new limited edition collections are out yet, I’ll find out if they can give me an exact date but I know it’s always difficult because not all stores roll products out on the same day.

      • Kelly 20 April 2016 / 09:06

        Thanks Luzanne 😀 Seeing as I follow you on all social platforms, I’ll definitely see your post :)

  2. Emlee 18 April 2016 / 09:55

    So excited for these products.. Especially the Keep it perfect makeup fixing spray.. I’m always on the hunt for a good drugstore fixing spray.. Can’t justify paying for Mac fix+.
    The eyeshadows look beautiful as well as the mosaic blushes and the brow products.. Ooohh yippee I just wanna go get them all now!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:40

      Me too! Can’t wait to get my hands on these new Essence goodies! 😉

  3. Carmel 18 April 2016 / 10:22

    I love this product but I have not sure of the mascara… How is it? I like long and volume lashes.

  4. Nadine 18 April 2016 / 10:23

    Awesome post!
    I’m most def getting one of those blushes and a velvet stick and a lipstick oh and the fixing spray oh and the eyebrow gel!
    There’s just too much that i want!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:44

      Thank you, Nadine! :) I agree, so many new and interesting products!

  5. Bianca 18 April 2016 / 10:24

    Couldn’t agree with you more – Essence and Catrice are so affordable and you often find little gems from these brands. I picked up the Glossy Sticks as there weren’t any nice colours of the Velvet Sticks left, and they are really creamy and considering the price tag work well. Also picked up the Sun Club bronzer for the first time and I am very impressed – feels a lot like The Body Shop Honey Bronzer and for a third of the price I was blown away. I love the smell of coconuts too.

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:46

      Ah no, I’ll have to get to my local Dis-Chem store soon before everything is sold out & I’ll have to wait until they get new stock again. Love the Sun Club bronzer, I featured it in my ‘Affordable Makeup Starter Kit’ post and it’s such a winner! I always give it a good sniff before I use it…coconuts… *hearty eyes*

  6. melissa 18 April 2016 / 10:29

    I have already fallen inlove with the gel polish im sure the other products will have the same effect , thanks Luzanne for this post i really would like to get one of each face products very excited my little (very tiny) collection is on its way

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:47

      You’re welcome, Melissa. :) I’m so happy to hear you are enjoying my blog posts. 😉

  7. Mahlaku 18 April 2016 / 10:55

    Blush balllls please.I hope they have a bit of shimmer in them… my blush to dazzle a bit!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:47

      It looks like they definitely have some shimmer in them, I also like it when a blush has a light dusting of shimmer. :)

  8. Kivanya 18 April 2016 / 10:56

    So excited! These new products have been slowly trickling in at my nearest dischem. Have only seen a selected few over the weekend. But I picked up the two-in- one eyeshadow and eyeliner, I absolutely love it. It doesn’t move, fade, or crease after a long day, and I have super oily eyelids. I’m gonna be on the lookout for the setting spray.

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:48

      I’m so happy to hear that, you just confirmed that the 2-in-1 shadow sticks are worth it! I’ll have to see which shades I get, because now I kind of want all of them. 😉

  9. Wardah 18 April 2016 / 11:06

    Cant wait to see your reviews for some of these items.. Especially the fix it make up spray? Any comparison to the more pricier versions?

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 17:50

      I’ll definitely buy the makeup setting spray to see if it’s comparable to other ones in my collection. :)

  10. Prettiful Blog 18 April 2016 / 11:20

    Haha, I just published a little haul post about this. I saw all of these in store on Friday, and went a bit overboard! All the products are pretty awesome. Definitely check out the eyeshadow, bb balm, mosaic blush, lip oil and matte lip crayon sticks!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:00

      Yes, I also saw them at my Dis-Chem on Friday and immediately started writing this post – I was so excited!

  11. Simone Cameron 18 April 2016 / 11:23

    The only problem with Essence is, once they are sold out, I find they don’t restock the shelves, so for months (here in PE) there’s literally nothing to buy :( So hopefully I get there early to grab some of these goodies!

    I definitely want to try the Rock n doll mascara, the lip oil, the 3 in 1 nail pen, all the nail art stickers, a few of the polishes, the crushed ice top coat, the shadow/liner combos….. *sigh*….I’d rather stop now as even with budget items, if you’re planning to grab 20, your pocket is in trouble. lol.

    Can’t wait for your reviews on the items you manage to get :)

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:02

      I agree with you, but it’s only with my local Clicks stores. Dis-Chem is usually quite good with restocking their shelves (or at least the Dis-Chem stores in my area are good). Start checking out your local Dis-Chem NOW because they’ve already rolled out to some stores. I saw some of the new products last week Friday already. :)

      If you get the 3-in-1 nail pen, let me know what you think… It intrigues me, but not enough to buy it. If it’s good, though, I’ll definitely get it (especially for travelling).

      Hope you’re having a great week so far, Simone!

  12. Euneen 18 April 2016 / 11:24

    Hi Luzannne! Ek het so uitgesien na die nuwe produkte. Ek was soos elke dag by my naaste Dischem om te kyk of dit al daar is en toe dit uiteindelik op die rakke is kon ek heelwat van die nuwe produkte koop. Soos jy sê, gelukkig is Essence baie bekostigbaar. :-) My gunstelinge sover is die translucent fixing powder, die 2 in 1 eyeshadow en liner, velvet matte stick en die velvet eyeshadow. Ek gebruik die fixing powder om my concealer te set en ek moet sê dit werk regtig goed. Dit brighten en ek kry geen creasing deur die dag nie. (Skies vir al die engels maar ek weet regtig nie hoe anders om dit te beskryf nie.) Die shadowstick en eyeliner is ook regtig goed. Ek sit dit op my hele ooglid en blend dit uit met ‘n matte shadow en dit hou ook die hele dag sonder om te crease (met ‘n primer natuurlik). Die velvet matte stick is bietjie droog maar ek kombineer dit met Mac se blankety en dis my gunsteling nuwe kleurkombinasie (ek het die ligte pienk nude kleur gekoop). :-) Sjoe, dit was omtrent ‘n mondvol! Xx

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:05

      Jip, ek moet nou een of ander tyd ‘n draai by my Dis-Chem gaan maak voor alles uitverkoop is! Ek het van die produkte laas week Vrydag gesien, maar het nie gekoop nie want ek wou wag om te sien of daar nog goedjies gaan kom. Ek sal jou gunsteling produkte in gedagte hou wanneer ek my Essence produkte gaan koop – ek is altyd bly as my lesers vir my ook hulle eie ‘reviews’ op produkte gee. 😉

      Moenie worry oor die Afrikaans / Engels meng nie, ek doen presies dieselfde (veral omdat my man Engels is). 😀

      Ek hoop jy het ‘n lekker aand verder, Euneen! xo

  13. Léanie 18 April 2016 / 11:56

    Ek sien beslis uit na al die nael en lip produkte! Ek sien dat jy die essence gel produkte se prys meld as R24.95, maar toe ek laas in clicks was moes ek ‘n rapsie meer betaal het R27.95. Essence bly maar een van my gunsteling kosmetiese produk vervaardiger.

    Dan hou ek ook van Pep winkels se nael produkte. Ek is nie seker of jy al van hul produkte probeer het nie?

    • Kaleigh Lorusso 18 April 2016 / 16:14

      Hi Léanie, must be a difference with the stores because I paid R24,95 at my Dischem today. :)

      • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:08

        Hi Kaleigh – you might be right, maybe some stores have new pricing? I’ll find out from Essence South Africa, and let you know. :)

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:07

      Hi Léanie! :) Dis die prys wat ek van Essence gekry het, ek sal net dubbel seker by hulle weer maak. :)

      Ek het nie eers geweet Pep maak nael produkte nie…wow! Ek sal bietjie gaan loer as ek weer naby ‘n Pep winkel is.

  14. Nicky 18 April 2016 / 13:33

    What a collection can’t wait to try them.. Will definitely be looking out for them…. Thank you for sharing

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:09

      You’re welcome, Nicky. 😉

  15. Elizbeth 18 April 2016 / 16:12

    Soooooo excited!!

  16. Kaleigh Lorusso 18 April 2016 / 16:15

    I went straight to Dischem after reading this post, and managed to get my hands on a lot of the products. Like you said, essence products are so cheap it didn’t break the bank. 😀

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:09

      Yay! I’m so happy to hear you managed to pick up most of what you wanted. :)

  17. Ursula 18 April 2016 / 16:26

    Need those adorable concealer pots in my life!!!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:11

      I agree – they’re just too cute! 😉

  18. Merissa 18 April 2016 / 16:50

    Oh, my list is so long! The mosaic blush, contour palette, longlasting lipstick, gummy topcoat, velvet lip sticks, makeup setting spray, sparkly snow topcoat, concealer palette, brow gel and the Rock & Doll mascara. 😀

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:12

      I hope you manage to find all the products on your list, Merissa. I think I’ll be popping in at Dis-Chem tomorrow or Thursday morning. Hopefully they’ll still have stock of everything. 😀

  19. Cara 18 April 2016 / 18:21

    Literally everything, I want all their new products!!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:12

      Hahahahah! Me too! 😉

  20. Porchia 18 April 2016 / 20:16

    Hhhmmmmm, where do I start. I want the translucent setting powder, the blush balls, the makeup finishing spray, the velvet lip pencils, and the heart shaped sponges. :) Do you think the sponges are like the beautyblender?

    Love your blog so much!! 😀

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:13

      No, I don’t think they’ll be like the beautyblender. In my honest opinion, nothing compares to the beautyblender. But I’m sure they’ll be great for setting your foundation with a powder, or to use with a creamy concealer. :)

      Thank you for the compliment, Porchia. 😉

  21. R Fourie 18 April 2016 / 20:27

    Now thats nice Essence – please distribute the new stock to ALL the branches, especially Clicks and online (Takealot).

    Now ….. my list : mousse concealer / eyebrow gel / 2 in 1 eyeshadow sticks / lip oil / mosaic blush / fixing powder / fixing spray / false lash mascara / velvet stick matt lip / longlasting nude lipstick / and all the interesting nail top coats !!!!!

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:15

      Sjoe, ek is nie seker of Takealot al die nuwe produkte sal hê nie…dis hoekom ek maar altyd op Dis-Chem bargain. :) Hopelik kan jy jou hande op meeste van die produkte kry – kom ons hou duim vas! 😉

        Net Clicks in my dorp – GEEN nuwe Essence produkte nie . Dalk moet Clicks n “online shop” baie sterk oorweeg

      Sounds like you have a nice little haul there! I’m heading to my Dis-Chem tomorrow or Thursday morning to buy some new goodies. :)

    Gosh it’s just so hard to decide. I simply love all essence products but if I had to choose only one I would definitely pick the make me brow eyebrow gel mascara :D, there is nothing better than well defined eyebrows. I’m just so excited, I just just set a date for my wedding and last night I was thinking of ideas to propose to my girls (maid of honor and bridesmaids) and after reading the blog I have found the perfect gifts. I will definitely be adding the new essence range with my proposal cards. I’m sure my ladies will love it <3 now only to find the perfect boxes #MuchExcited

      I agree, defined brows are so important – they just complete a makeup look.

      That’s SO special!! What a great idea! And congratulations on getting engaged, Jennifer! :)

    I’ve always been a fan of their nail polish. Looking forward to try out some of their other products as well.

    • Luzanne 19 April 2016 / 18:18

      Funny enough, I actually haven’t use a lot of their nail polishes but I’ve heard great things. I’ll buy a few of the new shades. :)

    Thanks for always updating us on the latest products coming out! I was in Dischem on Friday (before I read your blog) and got the 2-in-1 Eyeshadows – I got 4 of them :) did not like the lightest one. Did not get the blue one yet. But have all the rest and I am quite happy with them. Easy to use for a quick application and good staying power. Have to use make-up-remover in the evening to make sure I have removed them as they are waterproof.

    I did not see the blush balls so hoping they are in store this weekend :)

    So next on my list is: concealer mousse, blush balls, lip oil, BB lip gloss, Glossy & Velvet sticks :)

    Thanks again for keep us up-to-date – it really makes a difference!

    Great post (as usual)! I have just recently discovered this blog and your Youtube channel and I have been addicted ever since :)

    I noticed these products some weeks ago and last week I decided to get my hands on some. Oddly enough, I found that the blush balls sort of dissolved into my skin. The Glossy sticks are highly pigmented and quite smooth and I am so glad that Essence introduced lipsticks and liquid lipsticks that are quite dark and bold (perfect for autumn).

    I’m excited to try out their mascaras because they, in my opinion, have some of the best affordable mascaras. Also want to try out their eyeshadow sticks. I swatched the testers and they’re super-pigmented, even the sales lady could not remove it with make-up remover! :)

    I was really extremely excited to read about the new products available and was eagerly waiting for pay day…….well what a disappointment…..clicks has still old stock on shelves and dischem hasn’t anything new…..We in East London always seem to be on the back end of things. Quite a while back I sent an enquiry to Essence asking why are we always lagging behind…… and no reply….. even asked the ladies around the store and they could not even answer. So I am really not a happy chappy, and unfortunately I think I need to try shift my range onto another brand of cosmetics.

    Hi Luzanne
    This is a super exciting blog post, thanks so much! I’m sure I’ll be getting most of these amazing new products…I love essence! So excited to try their new mascaras, all the ones I’ve tried from them before are great. Also really keen to try the setting spray.
    Can’t wait to see you review these products!
    All the best.

    I have come to love essence, I remember whn I ws 16yrs old ( may moons ago) my first eyeshadow was an eyeshadow stick a bronze color and it ws amazing …….brings back memories
    I am using the lip liners too , however, on my second purchase, the new lip liners are pretty hard, does not glide on like the old stock

  32. mercialeen o'connor 25 April 2016 / 07:53

    I need hellllpppp please. I managed to get the new mousse concealer but it looks pasty under my eyes. I love how it definately blends in and looks when you first apply, but within an hour it looks dried up making the dark circles look worse….is there any advice you could give pretttty pleeeeeaaase

  33. Siobhan Hughes 26 April 2016 / 12:21

    Small update – I bought the Lip Oil – and gave it 2 days of only using that instead of my other balms. My lips were PEELING! And I never even have that problem, even in the depth of winter, as I’m OCD about taking care of them. Not impressed!

    • Simone Cameron 26 April 2016 / 14:05

      Oh wow, I’ve been using it and no such issues. BUT I haven’t felt any remarkable difference either.

  34. Danel 28 April 2016 / 14:38

    I saw a lot of these products at Dischem over the weekend. Was so excited to see that the Essence Brand is expanding so much. I really love their products because its so affordable.
    I will definitely be buying a few products every month. Please do some reviews on these new products. :)
