essence beach cruisers makeup – review + FOTD

Hi everyone!

I’m a bit late in showing you these items since I previewed them in my essence cosmetics haul video at the beginning of August! But I know some items are still available in discount bins at Shoppers Drug Mart so there’s a little bit of time left.

These are the makeup items we received in Canada for the essence beach cruisers limited edition. We also got a waterproof mascara topcoat, but I did not pick it up because I knew I would not use it.

wet bikini bag

I didn’t need another makeup bag, but I liked the pockets inside this one and I found it cute as well. I might just use it next summer – or on a trip – to store a wet bikini! 🙂

waterproof liquid eyeliners

These are really fun colours that add a glittery pop to your eyes. The colours are “01 sun, fun & copper!” (copper) and “02 keep calm and go to the beach!” (aqua).

Here’s a closer look of the eye look I did in my FOTD (showed at the end of this post). I find it ended up looking like a fish, don’t you think? 🙂

I’m not quite sure how waterproof they are, but they both came off easily with the L’Oréal Sublime Soft Gentle Micellar Cleansing Water, which is what I use to remove my eye makup (but I usually need a waterproof makeup remover for waterproof mascaras).

blush in “01 i ♥ summer break”

I know a lot of people were excited about this blush and can you blame them? Look at how beautiful it is! It even smells sweet.

bronzing powder in “01 life is a beach”

I’m new to bronzing powders and not quite sure how to use them, but I just couldn’t pass on this item. Another beautiful product! And it smells like coconut, YUM!

face of the day

This is the look I came up with using all these items.

I used the light shade of the bronzing powder on my eyelids and up to my brows, but you can’t tell. And I used the dark shade around my face, but you can’t tell either. Oh well.

Since we did not get any lip products in Canada for this limited edition, I used the jumbo sheer stick from the love letters collection that came out earlier this year.

Final Thoughts

I love all the items and I’m really glad I picked them up because I didn’t have any like them in my makeup stash yet.

Did you pick up any items from this limited edition?
