Review and swatches: Essence Vampire’s Love TE

Essence Vampire’s Love TE turned out to be nice surprise – I love more or less everything I got. :thumb:

Essence Vampire's Love trend edition

Four of the five polishes are pretty dark shades … just how I like them for the fall/winter time. :nails: And it doesn’t hurt that they packed them in Catrice bottles (brushes are not the same). :silly: I applied 2 coats + top coats in all of my nail polish swatches.

Let’s start with my favorite nail polish from Vampire’s Love edition – Gold Old Buffy. I absolutely adore this shade – it’s darker green, has complex structure and application was also OK. The only thing that I found odd was the fact that the brush is slightly different that in other polishes. We’re having bad weather lately so this polish looks darker green than in the photo most of the time.

Close behind comes True Love. It’s rare to find so pretty purple shade with warm undertone. Look how pretty is this polish. :wub:

Another great shade from this collection is darker gray-blue polish with lots of silver and purplish shimmer – Into The Dark.

Mamy applied only one coat and no top coat … so you can see how pigmented is this nail polish.

Last two polishes are nice, but not my favorites.
Hunt Me If You Can had black base with multicolored shimmer. But I find Catrice I Wear My Sunglasses At Night to be prettier.

The Dawn Is Broken is the only lighter shade in the bunch. This one was weird to apply – kind of gritty structure. And before I applied top coat I could feel the tiny grains in the polish … same way you feel larger glitter. Light gray polish with silver shimmer and darker particles is nice, but I’m currently not in the mood for this kind of colors.

Now lipstains – wow. I loved both of the shades. They are kind of liquidy, so I had to get hang of the application. But once I put it on it stayed there for hours. I applied thicker layer and then left my lips slightly open so the lipstain had a chance to dry evenly. After it dried completely I forgot I even had anything on my lips. It fades pretty well – I smudged outline with finger so there was no harsh line. 01 Bloody Mary is cooler purplish tone while 02 True Love is more reddish pink. Smell is slightly fruity and can be find in many Essence lipglosses. Sponge applicator is not bad either.

Love At First Bite eyeshadow palette consists of 6 shades (+ not so useful applicator) on one side and mirror on the other. Lightest pink and silver are more or less highlighting colors. Purple and grayish shade are not wildly pigmented but they do have very pretty satin like finish. Black shade with shimmer is one of those matte base eyeshadows with larger shimmer particles. Now darker olive-gold green is (for me) the star of this palette – fantastic color, nicely pigmented and with nice shine to it. I would buy the palette just to get this eyeshadow. :biggrin:

Huge :ahug: for lovely Saša who stood before the full Vampire’s Love stand and even though she was in a rush, she called me and got me everything I wanted. :rose:

Our Mamy bought Eau de toilette which she finds to be mysterious as collection itself.

  1. No, meni uspe dobiti te TE vedno, ampak z nelkaj tedensko (mesečno?) zamudo. No, kakorkoli, sem si tokrat omislila samo Hunt Me If You Can, ker sem si zaželela nov črn lakec. Ta me sicer ni razočaral, je pa res, da šimer skorajda ni opazen in ga pač lahko uvrstim med običajne črne lakce.

    No, sedaj pa čakat…februar(upajmo) za circus TE

  2. i got true love (i love it:) and the dawn is broken (i’m not sure if it suits me, i’m still trying to figure it out:) and last but not least into the dark (haven’t tried it yet)
    oh, and i got the red lipstain. i haven’t used it yet but i’m curious :D

    hugs :)

  3. heey,

    is vind die vampire love lip ding wel erg mooi, maar is het soort lipglos ? of meer lippenstift achtig.
    ik zou graag een mailtje terug horen wie het weet! :zip:

    • Hm – stain is well, stain. Lipstains are highly pigmented liquid that leaves long lasting color on your lips. But you don’t even know that you have it on after it drys, so the closest feeling would be those of matte lipsticks.

  4. Nič, Nihrida in Parokeetke ste me prepričale, da rabim tri odtenke lakcev, zlato-zelenega, belega in modrega. :drool: :wink: Vsemu ostalemu se bom lahko uprla (predvsem zato, ker imam na poti 4 nove senčke :blush: )

  5. čudovita kolekcija :wub:
    mogoče veste, če se kje v Ljubljani, da dobit?

    • V Mullerjih je ostalo bore malo. Sedaj nam preostanejo samo še DMi … pa upamo da še letos dobijo to TE.

      • sem takoj isti dan ugotovila, da sem bila spet prepozna. DM pa … jah glede na to da so zeloooo v zaostanku, skoraj dvomim, da bi bila pred novim letom notri, če sploh bo :cry:

        no senčk je bilo še precej na zalogi, ampak me barve ne prepričajo oz. mi niso uporabne. tisto zadevico za trepalnice ste mogoče sprobale?

  6. These are gorgeous! I especially love the first 3.

  7. Looks great, can’t wait till tomorrow :w00t:

  8. nesijem vise gledat swatcheve ove kolekcije, jer dawn is broken i into the dark me previse dozivaju, a rekoh da necu nista kupit

  9. Kot vsem, so meni res vsi lakci :stars: . Komaj čakam, da jih dobim v svoje roke. Oz. na svoje nohte :wub:

  10. Jaz imam parfum, pa je čisto moj vonj, z blushem pa tudi ne bi mogla biti bolj zadovoljna. :D

      • Parfum je čist zadovoljivo obstojen, doooosti bolj kot kakšen od Alverde, jaz niti nisem opazila, da bi bil kaj manj kot kakšen parfum v rangu okoli 20 €. Sem ga za hec pošpricala fantu na dlan, ker na njegovi koži je vse res doooolgo obstojno, pa je naslednji dan še vedno dišal kljub tuširanju in čeprav si je dostikrat roke umil. :D
        Blush mi pa brez problema zdrži od jutra do večera, pa še všeč mi je, ker obarva kožo in ne rabim skrbet, da bi se zbrisal, če se naslanjam na roko ali kaj podobnega. :)

  11. These are all very pretty! I especially love the dark blue one. I find the light grey very interesting and unique. I would love to get these, but Essence is not available in Romania.

  12. Upam da še kje najdem tole in b si vzela Gold Old Buffy (je nekaj posebnega in vse ga tako hvalite) :wink: ter True Love (obožujem temno rdeče/vijolične/roza odtenke in ta ima vse to!!!).
    Za modrega sem pa mislila da je svetlejši, bolj moder kot siv in ga najbrž ne bom kupila.
    Najsvetlejši je pa tut zanimiv in zelo poseben in se še odločam :sigh:

    • Sem prepričana, da bi bil Into The Dark svetlejši na sončku. Vendar glede na to, da se bo pri nas očitno še nekaj časa skrival, pa še potem bomo nosili rokavice … :silly:

  13. Čudno, že skoraj cel teden imam na nohtih Gold old buffy, pa na tvoji fotki prvič vidim karkoli zelenega v njem :undecided: Zame je črn z veliko zlatih delcev, v vsakem primeru je čudovit :sigh:

    • To so pa fotografije posnete pod močno svetlobo (zato sem dodala, da je v takem vremenu v resnici temnejši). Čeprav je pri meni bil precej zelen tudi, ko smo imeli “skoraj” sonce. :biggrin:
      Me pa zanima – je tudi pri tebi zelo obstojen? Jaz sem imela četrti dan samo res minimalen tip wear. :w00t:

  14. Imam laka The Dawn Is Broken in Into The Dark. Oba sta mi zelo všeč. Želela bi si še ta zelenkastega in vijola. Imam tudi Shimmer powder – stran vržen denar. Preveč šimrast. Parfum sem povonjala in mi je totalno presladek. Paleta … nope, me ne prepriča. V bistvu mi ni tako zelo oh in sploh ta kolekcija. :think: Laki so luštni …
    Sicer pa super prispevek in krasni swatchi! :wub:

  15. Kot pri Nihridi tudi tukaj gre moja ljubezen laku True Blood. :wub:
    Čeprav bi mi moral biti po nekaterih pravilih všeč tudi stain Bloody Mary, heh, ampak to je odtenek, ki ga kar naprej videvamo v Essence LE in nikakor nima pravega imena. Od kdaj je kri vijoličasta? Mogoče, če se pomešata navaden smrtnik in plemič? :silly:

    Ponovno super objava z veliko uporabno vrednostjo. :yes:

    • Jaz ponavadi rečem, da ima post visoko dodano vrednost. Vidim, da sva sorodni duši. :biggrin:

      Jaz sem se v vseh teh letih že navadila, da pri Essence ne moreš zaupati njihovem barvnem opisu ali pa klasifikaciji finiša. :silly:

  16. I love this company their quality and prices are the best, I never can find in my stores these LE collections

  17. I have also just written a post about this collection, though I only bought three nail polishes (for now). I agree – it’s one of the best trend editions Essence have come out with in the past year :) Thank you for great swatches and a lovely post :)

  18. Wow, the polishes are all so pretty. I usually like only a shade or two, but this time I’d take them all!

    Gold old Buffy is wonderful! :w00t:

    Please tell me how many coats for The dawn is broken? I’m looking for this kind of polish since I saw your swatch of p2 Stormy…

  19. :drool: OMG I want the all the polishes and both lip stains sooooooooo bad! They are all beautiful! *sigh* I wish Essence sold these collections over here in the states so much.

  20. Meni so tudi vsi lakci všeč. Že dolgo si nisem nobenega kupla (podlak ne šteje) :stars: Mogoče je že čas :drool:

  21. Jaz sem prejšnji teden kupila vseh 5 lakcev in jih (normalno) mogla takoj vse preizkusit :yes:
    Najbolj mi je všeč True Love, ki je tudi trenutno na mojih nohtkih :wub: Na zadnjem mestu je pa The Dawn Is Broken, prav zaradi tega grobega finiša :nono:
    Ah ja, pa včeraj sem se morala vrnit še po paletko, ker mi ni dala miru … :naughty:
