We are a small team dedicated to bringing affordable, fun, and high quality products into the serious world of cosmetics. So why would you choose just one lipstick, eyeliner, nail polish, eye shadow, lip gloss, (you see the point) when you can try them all? Here is how it all started!

Our ingredients comply with the strict standards of the European Union Cosmetics Directive and United States FDA. And we do not test on animals.

essence history

In 2001, essence was started by Christina, a fearless woman entrepreneur, who wanted to make a different cosmetics brand – a really fun brand that offers both great quality and excellent prices. It was launched in its first country – Germany, in 2002. Then, in 2007 essence became #1 in Germany and was sold in 50 other countries. It was introduced in Hungary in 2008.
