A Small Essence Haul from Wilko…

Welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

Mark and I just had to get into the car and get out for a while on Sunday, after we had a really rubbish week. I wanted to purchase a few Essence cosmetics goodies from Wilko online but because the rubbish week was down to a bit of online fraud on Mark’s bank account we decided to go to our nearest Wilko store instead, safer that way.

I did write myself a list of Essence products I wanted but only managed to get a few from said list, our local store didn’t have everything in, but what I did buy I was happy with. I’ll be writing reviews on EAB soon.

I’m really looking forward to trying the Essence Camouflage 2 in 1 Foundation & Concealer, will I still need my concealer? We’ll see, and I will get back to you, soon  It was only £3.80. I’ve always wanted to try a lip oil, and when I saw this one by Essence I thought that I’d give it a go. I’ve no idea what a lip oil is for, does it colour, does it condition, does it hydrate? I’ll get back to you on that. The lip oil was just £2.00. I have wanted to try an Essence mascara for ages, especially one that claims to give “extreme volume and curl” my eyelashes or rather the state of them is really depressing me. I’d give my right arm to be able to go and get eyelash extensions done but until my numbers come up in the Lotto I shall keep on looking for my holy grail mascara. Could this be the one? I’ll let you know. The Essence False Lashes mascara is £2.80. I hate my lips as much as I do my eyelashes! If I could afford lip fillers I wouldn’t hesitate in getting them done! So until I do get that big Lotto cheque it’s lip plumping products for me! I picked up the Essence Volume On! lip plumping lipgloss, it’s a pretty nude peach shade, so I’ll give it a go and get back to you with my thoughts. The Essence Volume On! lip plumping lipgloss is £2.30 and finally I picked up a Nail Caring Oil it contains Apricot oil so I’m looking forward to trying that too. I’m in the middle of trialing some nail products at the moment, so I’ll let you know what the Essence product is like, soon. The Essence Nail Caring Oil is just £2.00.

I purchased my Essence products from my local Wilko stores but you can purchase online from Wilko too, HERE or from the Essence website HERE

Thank you for reading, I’ll be back soon with my thoughts on my Essence purchases.






Plumping Gloss by Ariane Poole*

Hello again beauties!

I am such a lucky lady to be writing a beauty blog, and at my age too! Lucky because I sometimes get sent beautiful products to use  and then write about them here to share with you all. Today I have something very special to share with you. Celebrity makeup artist Ariane Poole has sent me one of the newest additions to her wonderful cosmetics range for me to try and then review on Elegant Ageless Beauty. This is the Plumping Gloss by Ariane Poole*

Ariane sent me the shade “Wonder” to try and it’s my favourite from the six shades available. I just love the simplicity and chic-ness of Ariane Poole* Cosmetics packaging of the Plumping Gloss, it’s a high quality plastic but looks and feels like glass. I’m not sure of the weight of the product but believe me the tube is huge and you get a lot of lip gloss inside. It has a sponge tip applicator which is really lovely and sturdy and doesn’t bend when you apply the product. But the lip gloss itself ? Oh my it’s amazing! It has a gorgeous scent of vanilla and contains cardamom and nutmeg which are the natural ingredients that gives it the plumping action, and it also tastes gorgeous.


It applies like a dream with beautiful sheer colour and has a pretty shine. It’s not a sticky lip gloss, it feels light on the lips and you certainly don’t get the uncomfortable tingling like some plumping lip products. It’s super hydrating to help keep the lips soft and luscious. Does it make my lips look plumper? Well it doesn’t give me lips like Angelina Jolie, but after a few moments they do look smoother, Mark told me that they look fuller and more defined, he also loved the way my lips shined too. Because the Plumping Gloss is a sheer product you can wear it alone or over the top of  a regular lipstick.This is a beautiful lip gloss that I shall be wearing regularly. Plumping Gloss is £17.00 from Ariane Poole website HERE  or you can click on the AP* logo in the sidebar.


Thank You for stopping by and reading today.

I spent £18.00 on products with £1.00 for shipping.

Intense Kisses Lip-gloss £1.00

Fashionista Plumping Lip-gloss £2.00

Pro-Base Complexion Kit £4.00

Look out for reviews on all the products as soon as I have used them for a couple of days, so probably during the next week. On first impression though the eye-shadow palette is stunning! I can’t wait to start using it, I was surprised at the size of it the same goes for the complexion kit, they are huge and such a fantastic bargain! So I shall be back with the reviews soon.

Thank you reading.
