Review: Essence "Next stop: Summer" lipstick and nail polish holder

The days are getting warmer and Essence are getting ready for summer with their new TE collection called »Next stop: Summer«. Last week I shared a preview of the collection with you and today I am here to share my thoughts after trying out the colour changing lipstick and nail polish holder.

The whole collection has fun and brightly coloured packaging, perfect for the summer. Nail polish holder comes in a bright coral shade and is designed like a huge diamond ring. You secure it on two fingers, pop the polish of your choice inside and can easily paint your nails without worrying about holding the bottle.

The holder fits almost any type of nail polish bottle, which I find very handy. It would be perfect for those who are a bit more unexperienced and struggle with nail polish application. I find it perfect to use while sitting on the couch and watching a movie, it makes painting your nails easy and fuss-free.

The lipstick was one of the things that intrigued me the most in this collection. Shade 02 little miss sunshine looks like a pastel purple in the tube, but immediately applies as a sheer pink on the lips. The colour can be slightly built up, and the intensity slowly develops to a bright pink. The finish is sheer and feels very moisturizing on the lips. It fades quite quickly, but leaves a pretty pink stain that lasts on the lips for a few hours.

I love products like this in the summer time. They are easy to throw in your beach bag and apply without a mirror if you want some colours on the lips. The colour changing effect has a very '90 vibe, but I love it. I find it very quirky and a good stepping-stone for those who want to try the crazy coloured lipstick trend, but don’t yet have the courage to commit to a full-on lavender lipstick shade.

With such affordable prices (nail polish holder: 2,19 €; lipstick: 2, 49 €), they are a complete bargain and will be a fun addition to your summer makeup bag.

If you want to see how the rest of the »Next stop: Summer« collection looks like, you can check out the preview I posted last week. It will be available at DM drugstores, TUŠ drugstores, Click2chic online store, Mercator stores, Leclerc Ljubljana in Maribor from tomorrow!
