Opis in ocena: Essence – I Love TE

By  | 

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.

Essence - I Love TE

Essence - I Love TE

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?

    Sem dejansko prišla pred polno stojalo, pa me nič ni pritegnilo. Morda ta siv lak, ampak ne toliko, da bi ga kupila. Shimmer mi je bil namreč zelo všeč, ampak je dišal bo brush strokes (madoniš, kako se to po slovensko reče? :blush: ) … bomo videli, če bo v novem sortimentu, se tako ne mudi. :)

    Najbolj me zanimajo senčila. Imajo samo te barve, ki si jih predstavila?

    Drugače sem pa pred kratkim odkrila bazo za senčila, ki se zelo dobro obnese na mojih mastnih vekah (NYX High definition :happy: ).

    • Maestra

      Avgust 25, 2011 at 09:13

      Skupaj bo 6 senčil (menda še bakrena, zlata in temnejša srebrna – to sklepam iz promo fotk). Zaenkrat so bile pa semo te barve na razpolago.

      Superca! Me veseli, da si končno odkrila nekaj, kar ti ustreza!!! Jaz imam od NYX Eyeshadow base v lončku kožne barve, ki pa sumim, da ni najboljša za mastne veke, ker je precej voskasta. Morda pa kdaj preizkusim še to, ki jo ti omenjaš. ;)

    I have this eyeshadow base and quite oily eyelids. So far I tried it twice and once it didn’t work well (the eyeshadow creased after just 5 hours), but the second time it worked quite ok. In any case, I’d only recommend it to people with non-oily eyelids.

    I also have this gloss and it’s lovely, it just doesn’t last long and I wish it was more opaque. Btw, I’m not sure whether the gloss is actually a part of this TE, as there’s no “I love” etc. on it … ?

    And I definitely have got to get that cream eyeshadow :)

    • Maestra

      Avgust 25, 2011 at 07:58

      Thank you for your comment on the eyeshadow base! :rose:
      I’m also confused with the lipglosses. I’m confused, because on the Essence web site, these aren’t mentioned in the description of the I Love collection. :ermm:
      btw. The Colour&Go polishes also do not have “I love” on the packaging. ;)

    I picked up the same three polishes shades as you and the Steal the Show eyeshadow. Which I really like I used it as my base and then put the grey metallic shade from the UD Naked palette. It was nice.

      I own the Naked Palette, so I have to try your combo! Thank you! :rose:

    83 Luxury Secret reminds me a bit of Chanel Black Pearl.

    • Maestra

      Avgust 25, 2011 at 07:52

      Interesting, because I’ve had the same thought. I’ve never seen Black Pearl in person, but from the swatches I’d say that these aren’t even very close. Black Pearl is more black (and a bit green), while Luxury Secret is more brown(ish). I’d say that Luxury Secret is better! :biggrin:

    Hard to Resist has the perfect name for a shade like that… Infact now I can’t resist and I have to buy it! ;)
    Mascara seems interesting too… Nice collection, hope to see it in an Essence stand in the future!

    sama sem že pred kratkim kupila vse lake, razen modrega, ker jih imam pač že preveč doma. mam tudi bazo, ki ej super in srebrno senčilo, ki je se strinjam, zelo obstojno. mi znaš povedati, kdaj pride k nam natventuriste LE?

    • Maestra

      Avgust 25, 2011 at 07:49

      Super, ninika!
      Glede Natventuriste pa žal nimam nobenih “inside” informacij. Vem le to, kar je na uradni spletni strani. Da je napovedana za september/oktober.

    A mi še lahko poveš kje si jih kupila, v Lj?

    Super! Jaz se veselim baze za senčila. :) Pa očitno po novem tudi senčk, sem presenečena nad obstojnostjo, z njihovimi senčkami sem imela do zdaj bolj kot ne težave, je pa res, da sem jih uporabljala brez baze. Mogoče veš, kateri odtenki senčk še pridejo ven? Če se ne motim, jih bo 6?

    • Maestra

      Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:13

      V splošnem jaz pri čisto vsakem MUju uporabim podlago. Podlaga pomaga, da se senčila lažje oprimejo veke, velikokrat pa tudi pomaga pri intenzivnosti barv ipd. In seveda daljša obstojnost. :yes:
      Kolikor vidim iz promo fotografij, jih bo res šest. Izgleda, da bo zlata, bakrena in še neka temnejša srebrna… A dokler ne vidim v živi, težko zagotovo rečem.

      • Mateja

        Avgust 24, 2011 at 17:24

        Super, komaj čakam, če bo res bakrena, bo kar zame. :)
        Podlage za senčila sem pa odkrila še ne dolgo časa nazaj :blush: Pred tem sem se bolj posvečala samo lakom za nohte, ostale zadeve so bile pa samo bolj na hitro, z varnimi barvami, pa z jezo zaradi neobstojnih senčk. :blush: Se pa zdaj učim, tudi s pomočjo blogov. :thumb:

    I love Luxury Secret. The other shades of NP are pretty but I already have nearly the same colors…so I think I’ll skip them.
    Thanks for your nice review!

    • Maestra

      Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:09

    Moder lak je super lep!

    Zanima me pa tudi eyeshadow base…a kaj prepreči nabiranje senčila v gubi?

    • Maestra

      Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:09

      Meni prepreči. Ne vem pa, kako se obnaša na zelo mastnih vekah. Moje veke so normalne in če uporabim dokaj znosno podlago, se mi senčila ne nabirajo v gubo in ostanejo na mestu ves dan. In tako je bilo tudi s to podlago. :yes:

    Aweee I love the blue and olive/golden polishes! Pretty badly want them! I can’t remember if you had I’m a Marine Girl from the 50s Girls Reloaded LE, if you do, can I ask you for a comparison between that one and this blue one? They look very similar to me!
    The eyeshadows are also very pretty but I have similar ones (if not identical) by Kiko.

    • Maestra

      Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:07

      Yes, I have I’m A Marine Girl as well. They are not the same. I’m A Marine Girl leans a bit towards purple (I think it has also purple shimmer) and Hard To Resist leans toward green, because it has turquoise shimmer.

      • Simona Scrap

        Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:15

        Thanks for letting me know! I have to have this one, too, then because I’m a lover of blue shades for winter!

    The way you’ve applied eye shadows makes it look soo nice. i couldnt never carry off a silver shade soo well

    Avgust 24, 2011 at 15:09

    All Stay All Day eyeshadows and a base. Already bought the mascara and I quite like it – little bit to “wet”, but that only means it will get better with use. :biggrin:

    • Maestra

      Avgust 24, 2011 at 16:04

      Agree with you. Better a bit too wet mascara at the beginning. It’ll only get better (or drier) during time. :biggrin:
