Review and swatches: Essence Crystalliced TE

By  | 

As I suspected Essence Crystalliced nail polishes are not my cup of tea. I closely examined all of the available shades and my only reaction was – blah. I did get liquid highlighter and liquid eyeshadow.

Essence Crystalliced TE liquid highlighter looked very pretty in the bottle + it has a pump so of course I had to buy it. :silly: I wouldn’t classify this as a “day” highlighter … at least not for those of us that are shimmer-shy. Texture and shimmer are very fine, but you can still notice shimmer and not just sheen as I prefer my highlighters to look like. Base color is little bit to light which makes no difference to me as I’m very pale, but when I applied it over darker foundation, I had to use really small amount to avoid “Christmas tree” effect.

I have two Essence Crystalliced liquid eyeshadows. First one is It’s A Snow-Woman’s World. Base is purplish-gray with copperish shimmer. After I apply it I see pretty much only shimmer. So I guess it could be also used as highlighter.

Second one is Ice Age Reloaded. Lovely beige colored with goldish shimmer. Both liquid eyeshadows can be used as a base for powdery eyeshadows.

All three liquid products I have from Essence Crystalliced TE are not sticky or greasy. :thumb:

    Frosty/pale colors aren’t my cup of tea, so I only got the liquid highlighter and I like it a lot :) x

    Tale LE me sploh ne mika in seveda ravno to čisto povsod videvam. Čisto iskreno povedano me je najbolj mikalo kupit stekleničke zaradi izjemno prisrčnega ročaja, ima na robu vgravirane snežinkice, pa mi je bilo zelo luškano. :)

      Sva z Maestro debatirali kako lepe so snežinke na embalaži … a na HL jih niso dali. :angry: :biggrin:

    I just left them on the shelves when I saw them. On my kind of greasy skin they are really bad (I tried the testers and they greased even on my hand skin!).

      Really?!? I too have greasy skin and they leave no film or oil on the surface. I can barley feel them. I guess they don’t work with your skin. :sigh:

    Še vedno čakam na lakce, sem imela namen najti tuš drogerijo, ampak je tako snežilo, da sem raje ostala doma in čakam na boljše vreme. Osvetljevalec nekako ni moja šibka točka (imam precej mastno kožo in se že dovolj ‘svetim’), senčila so pa bolj slabo pigmentirana in bi jih uporabljala bolj za bazo, ampak je trenutno ne potrebujem- ‘potrebujem’ le dva odtenka laka za nohte :wink:

      Poročaj kako ti bosta lakce všeč. :nails:
      Jaz potrebujem HL kljub super mastni koži … jo toliko zmatiram, da moram vrniti malo sijaja. :biggrin:

    the highlighter look really pretty, other than that i’m just not a big fan of the colours..

      I guess we’re more vibrant color crowd. :biggrin:

    Sem kupila taisto senčko v odtenku It’s a Snow-Woman’s World. Preizkusila je še nisem (na očeh), jo pa nameravam v prihodnjih dneh. Kupila sem še lak v odtenku Ice Crystals on My Window, drugi me niso pritegnili. Moram reči, da sem precej navdušena nad njim, čeprav potrebuje preveč plasti za moj okus.

      Pri meni se senčke skoraj ne vidi, se jo pa druge senčke lepo oprimejo, tako da bo dobro opravila funkcijo sekundarnega primerja. :silly:

    I really wanted to buy that highlighter, but now :S I don’t know.

      I guess it depends on what you expect from HL. I like it – just not for everyday use.

    Sama imam samo en lak – Ice eyes baby, ki je čudovito modro-siv s krasnim šimrom. Od ostalih stvari pa me nič ni pritegnilo, edino mogoče me še malo bleščice mikajo, pa ne vem, če bi jih uporabljala :whistle:

      Ravno zato jih jaz nisem kupila. :silly:

    mene je tekoče senčilo čisto razočaralo, nič barve ne da od sebe :(
    imam dva laka (tasvetel in tasiv). svetel je mogoče na nohtih bolj bel in so potrebne 3 plasti…siv pa sivo-vijolčen. nič posebnega na žalost.
    sem pa vesela nad glitter lončki! :wub:

      Na srečo so bili na voljo testerji, tako da sem vedela kaj lahko pričakujem. Meni je vseeno, če nimajo dosti barve, ker je pri meni njihova glavna funkcija, da “prilepijo” senčko v kamnu/prahu nase. :silly:
