Haul: A few pieces from Essence SS'16

Every year Essence come out with some new pieces to add to their permanent collection and each year there are a few bits that I can't pass. This year I managed to restrain myself to just a few that really caught my eye and here are the ones that I chose:

  Velvet Stick Matt Lip Colour in 02 Peony Star

This one seemed to be all I am looking for in a lipstick; a mauve-y nude, matte finish and easy to apply. I would be lying if I said that the name wasn't partially the reason for me getting it, but we all know how much I love peonies. I've only tried it a few times, but I have a feeling that I'm going to enjoy it very much.

SuperFine Eyeliner Pen Waterproof

Every once in a while I feel the urge to find a great affordable eyeliner to replace my beloved ArtDeco High Precision one, and when I saw this one I had to give it a go. For now I can't really tell you much more, but it has a lot of potential.

 Shape Your Face contouring palette in 20 ready, set, pink!

After I was so impressed with the new Catrice blush palette, I couldn't resist trying out the essence version as well. This one though is a contouring palette with a bronzer, highlighter and a blush. For now I'm not really happy with the highlighter, but the other two seem promising.
I included pictures in different lightings so that you can see the shimmer running through the blush and the shades of other two powders.

Keep it perfect! make-up fixing spray

A make-up fixing spray from a drugstore is something we've all been waiting for. I have yet to try this one,  but I really have high hopes for it!

Brush cleansing spray

Another product that I'm really excited about is the brush cleansing spray, I've never had one like this before and I think it could be a great thing to keep my brushes clean during uses.

There were so many amazing new products out there and I wished I could try them all, but for now, these will have to do. Once I properly try them out I'll tell you how I feel about them.
Did you try anything from the new releases? What else would you recommend for me to try?

  1. Essence eyeliner zveni zanimivo, mogoče ga nabavim. Vidim, da tudi ti nisi zadovoljna s highlighterjem v svoji paleti - meni se zdijo slaba kopija Sleek palet.

    1. Do zdaj sem ga malo bolj sprobala in me moti to, da se konica hitro "posuši", čeprav je ostal aplikator še "moker" kar pomeni da je nanašanje precej oteženo :/

    2. Kar se pa highlighterja tiče, ga pa jaz uporabljam kot setting powder za korektor, ampak samo zato ker je ravno pri roki... Škoda, ker Catrice paletka ima pa krasen highlighter :)

  2. Thumbs up za te šminke v svinčniku :3 Jaz bi kar vse imela, pa vem, da imam že veliko takšnih doma. Sem vzela potem eno iz te nove Wake up, spring ! kolekcije. Me pa moti, da ni testerjev ?!
    Sem pa tud vzela ta sprej za čiščenje čopičev in seveda še nisem preizkusila :D

    Beauty of a Lemon

    1. Res kul izgledajo, ampak se strinjam, wtf je to brez testerjev :/ -.-

  3. Sem ravno ta teden iskala Velvet Stick šminko in ta odtenek so povsod pobrali :/
    Me pa zanima ta fixing spray :)

    1. O a res, potem sm mela jst kar srečo ker jih je bilo takrat res veliko še tam :D
      Danes sem ga sprobala za na event, pa se je precej obnesel makeup :D

  4. I love Essence! I cannot wait to try these new additions! :)

    1. So do I :) I know, there is soo much exciting new stuff :D <3
