Opis in ocena: Essence – I Love TE

New Trend Edition by Essence is called I Love. What’s cool about this trend edition is that it’s a preview of what’s coming. Namely from September 2011, these products will be part of the Essence standard range. Here’s what I bought.

Colour & Go polishes in shades:

  • 76 – Hard To Resist – dark blue with turquoise shimmer.
  • 80 – Icy Princess – shimmery silver.
  • 83 – Luxury Secret – I’d describe this shade as shimmery taupe shade. Very unique.

Lipgloss On Top in 01 Dramatize. It looks very dark in the tube. It isn’t as dark when applied on the lips. The base is sheer. I don’t know how to describe the shade. It’s a mix between plum, brown in purple. It has gold shimmer. The texture is smooth and not sticky. It smells sweet (think sweet vanilla smell). I like the packaging.

I Love Stage eyeshadow base has a nice creamy texture. It’s nude shade and it doesn’t contain shimmer. It contains 4ml of product. I’ve used it a couple of times and it worked nicely for me. The make up stayed in place for hours on my normal (not greasy) eyelids. The photos and swatch are above.

I Love Extreme volume mascara. I was never a big fan of Essence mascaras but this one is a winner in my book. It does what it promises. Extreme volume in one swipe. I have to mention though that it glues the lashes (I can’te remember a better word for that) if your not careful, but I guess that’s quite common for such mascaras. I recommend you have a lash comb handy. And the best part is, it’s reasonably priced and it contains 12ml of products! A true winner in my book!

Another product that surprised me in a good way is the Stay All Day long lasting eyeshadow. I bought all three shades that were available and I’m happy I did. I’ll explain everything as we go along. Let’s talk about shades first.

  • 03 Steel The Show. The color is hard to describe. I guess the best description is metallic shimmery taupe. It’s similar color as the Luxury Secret nail polish is. Very nice and versatile.
  • 04 Stars & Stories is metallic silver.
  • 06 Rock Chic is metallic black with silver shimmer.

They all have a strong metallic finish.
The consistency is hard but creamy. I thought these are going to be creamy and soft, but they are not, which I don’t mind.
Once they set they are almost impossible to blend.
I initially bought these eyeshadows because I wanted to try if they are going to work as an eyeshadow base, but unfortunately I haven’t tried that (yet). But I’m quite sure these are good as an eyeshadow base as well.
To make it up to you, I tested the wear of these eyeshadows. They promise to “stay all day” and I had to test that. I was impressed. Below is my proof, that they actually stayed on all day. I even tried them with and without the eyeshadow base and there was no difference that’s why I’m only showing you the photos without the eyeshadow base. I think the photos speak for themselves.

I’d like to mention that my eyelids are normal (not greasy, but also not dry). Though almost all cream eyeshadows do crease on me.

That’s all I have for you for now. Please let me know in the comments what do you think about the I Love trend edition? Do you have any products on your wish list already?

Nova omejena kolekcija znamke Essence se imenuje I Love. Zanimivost te kolekcije je, da gre pravzaprav za predogled izdelkov, ki še prihajajo. Namreč od septembra 2011 bi naj bili izdelki iz omenjene kolekcije na voljo v standardni ponudbi. Kupila sem naslednje.

Colour & Go laki v odtenkih:

  • 76 – Hard To Resist – temno modra s turkiznim šimom.
  • 80 – Icy Princess – šimrasta srebrna.
  • 83 – Luxury Secret – odtenek bi opisala kot šimrast sivo-rjav. Zdi se mi precej poseben.

Lipgloss On Top v odtenku 01 Dramatize. V embalaži izgleda zelo temen. Na ustnicah ni tako zelo temen, saj je precej prosojen. Nisem prepričana, kako bi najbolje opisala prosojno osnovo izdelka. Gre za mešanico slivove, rjave in vijolične. Vsebuje pa prav tako zlat šimer. Konsistenca je gladka in nelepljiva. Vonj je sladek (pomislite na sladko vanilijo). Všeč mi je embalaža.

I Love Stage baza za senčila. Tekstura je kremasta. Barva je kožna in ne vsebuje šimra. Embalaža vsebuje 4ml izdelka. Bazo sem do sedaj nekajkrat preizkusila in se je vsakič dobro obnesla na mojih normalnih (ne mastnih) vekah. Make up je ostal na mestu več ur. Fotografije aplikatorja in swatch si lahko ogledate na zgornjih fotografijah.

I Love Extreme volumenska maskara. Nikoli nisem bila velika privrženka Essence maskar, a tale je drugačna. Zame je zmagovalka! Naredi točno to, kar obljublja. Neverjeten volumen! In to v enem nanosu. Odkar sem jo kupila, jo uporabljam vsak dan. Oči mi ne draži. Omeniti moram, da maskara zna zlepiti trepalnice, zato priporočam, da imate kar pri roki glavniček za trepalnice. A dozdeva se mi, da je za volumenske maskare kar običajno, da zlepijo treplanice, ali? In še najboljši del … cena je zmerna in vsebuje 12ml izdelka! Prava zmagovalka!

Še en izdelek, ki me je pozitivno presenetil, je Stay All Day dolgo obstojno senčilo. Kupila sem vse tri odtenke, ki so bili na voljo in ni mi žal. Vse bom razložila sproti. Najprej nekaj besed o odtenkih.

  • 03 Steel The Show. Barvo je težko opisati. Verjetno je še najboljši opis šimrast sivo-rjav odtenek. Barva je podobna laku Luxury Secret.Lep in izredno uporaben odtenek. Na fotografiji spodaj je morda malenkost preveč siv.
  • 04 Stars & Stories je kovinsko srebrn.
  • 06 Rock Chic je črn s srebrnim šimrom.

Vse imajo močan kovinski finiš.
Konsistenca je trda, a kremasta. Mislila sem, da bodo mehkejša, a niso. So kar trda, a se vseeno nanašajo kar enostavno. Jaz sem jih nanašala s sintetičnim čopičem.
Ko se posušijo, jih je skoraj nemogoče zabristati.
Prvotno sem jih kupila, ker sem želela videti, ali delujejo kot baza za senčila, a tega še nisem uspela preizkusiti. A sem skoraj prepričana, da so dobra tudi za ta namen.
Da se vam oddolžim, ker nisem preizkusila zgoraj omenjenega, sem preizkusila, kako dolgo obstojna so. Obljubljajo, da “ostanejo ves dan”, kar sem seveda želela preizkusiti. In navdušila so me! Spodaj je moj dokaz, da so na meni dejansko ostala ves dan (skoraj 12ur!). Preizkusila sem jih z in brez podlage za senčila in praktično ni bilo razlike, zato vam bom pokazala samo fotografije, kjer nisem uporabila podlage. Mislim, da fotografije govorijo zase.

Omenila bi rada še, da imam normalne veke (ne mastne in ne suhe). Kljub temu pa večina krem senčil gre v gubo tudi na mojih vekah.

To je vse, kar imam danes za vas. V komentarjih pa mi napišite, kaj si mislite o kolekciji. Imate morda že kakšen izdelek na listi želja?
