You know I love all things girly and the Essence Spring 2013 Launch Party in Toronto left no details unattended. If you’re a girly girl this was the place to be on February 12th, 2013…. it was heaven on Earth! Essence just celebrated their 1 year anniversary here in Canada and thought they would celebrate with beauty bloggers, media reps and their amazing PR firm. The set up was very urban chic, done in all white, pink and red with hundreds of hearts, lips and hanging lanterns. Everyone spent hours taking a peek at all the goodies that are coming to stores in Spring 2013 from Essence. They had everything a girl could ever dream of from a lip print reader, to a nail bar, to a makeup station, to a bar (not a party without it), to an ice cream bar, tons and tons of candy to get our lil hands on and of course 3 different displays of the Essence Spring line, in which we were able to help ourselves to.beautiful display

For those of you that know me know I’m a huge fan of Essence and like fashion you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on products to look like a million bucks. Essence proves this theory with their very affordable line of cosmetics where nothing is valued at over $5, most products range from $1.49 to $3.49. It’s available at Shoppers Drug Marts and Pharmaplus here in Canada, but new items move very quickly so make sure you check your stores regularly for the best finds.
Here is a full list of all the wonderful goodies that are coming to Essence in Spring 2013, keep an eye out for them all… sure to be all amazing!
