It is with great sadness and a very heavy heart that I tell you that, yes, Essence is discontinuing some of their great products, including a few absolute favourites of mine. Before I continue and tell you what's going, I just want to ask why? Well no, I know why but, seriously, why? I know companies discontinue products to make room for new ones but, well, why can't they just keep the old and release the new?! I want to have my cake and eat it too, dammit!
(Sorry, as you can see, I get far too attached to cosmetics and, therefore, sulk like my three year old nephew when I have to say goodbye to them!)
It's time for me to be a grown up and accept the fact that I'm not going to be able to repurchase a few of my favourite Essence beauty products, I know. I did, however, want to write this post so I could tell you what you won't be able to get for much longer. If you like anything written about below, it's time to head on to your local Priceline or Target (if you're in Australia, that is) and repurchase these bad boys before it's too late!
The following products are being discontinued (I don't know the shade names for them but I do have the shade numbers, I hope that's enough for you to cross reference with products in your collection!)

That's a whole lotta stuff, isn't it? Now you can see why I'm so sad. If you're thinking about picking up any products that are being discontinued, here are my recommendations -
I absolutely LOVE all of the Stay All Day Long Lasting Creme Eyeshadows. For swatches, click here. My favourites are #02 Glammy Goes To and #09 For Fairies. They are absolutely beautiful.
The black gel eyeliner, #01, is incredibly pigmented and, of course, it's one of the two they are discontinuing. I'm assuming they'll release something in it's place but definitely try it out if you still can!
I own five of the Essence Gel Eyeliner Brushes. Yes, five. A little excessive? I think not. I use them for my brow wax, brow powder, lower lashline detail and, of course, to apply gel liner!
I use my Fix & Matte! Translucent Loose Powder to see my undereye concealer every single day. I recommend it to everyone and now they can't buy it!
Anyway, I'll survive but will you? Are they discontinuing some of YOUR favourite products? I hope not! What do you recommend I pick up before it's too late? Quick. I need recommendations!
Always look your best,
