Hallelujah! A Solution For Make Up Running At The Gym

Hallelujah! A Solution For Make Up Running At The Gym

The only thing that should run is you

I'll set the scene, you go to the gym after work with your full face of make up still on, after working up a sweat you catch a glimpse of yourself in the changing room mirror and what is glaring back at you resembles the Joker.


Up until now, there have only been two options, continue to run this make up roulette or wear no make up and run the risk of seeing an ex or an old school 'frenemy' you would rather avoid. If you are a make up wearing gym goer who has never had both the sweat and make up along with it drip off your face, then I'm afraid to say you're doing it wrong.

Well, we finally have an option three and a solution to this common problem. Essence cosmetics has recently launched a selection of three gym-proof Athleisure products as part of its new spring summer range, following on from the success of the You Better Work! Gym proof primer last season.  Whether it’s a pre college early morning gym session or a post college pilates class, these performance-based products will endure the toughest workout. This new range is not just confined to the gym, their staying power also makes them a great choice for holidays. As the sun comes out and the temperature rises, these products will be sure to keep your makeup in place all day long.
