Hello and welcome back to my blog, beautiful!
Today is my first press release post from Essence Cosmetics. I’ve been on their mailing list for a while already but I’ve seen how other bloggers do press release and I’m very excited to see how I put my own spin on it. I personally love Essence cosmetics as I feel that they’re good quality with extremely affordable options which are student friendly, so as soon as my dad gets home he has to take me shopping because at the moment, I’m broke.
As of October, the spring/summer season is about to become even more attractive with lots of must-have products that are joining the Essence range. Cool looks with a wow-effect are guaranteed!
I’m honestly very impressed with the new range, I feel that this was very well thought out and that most people who asked for things from Essence will be very happy with what the company delivered.
