Essence Me & my lover nail polishEssence Me & my lover lak za nohte

How come I have jet to write about this beautiful red “liquid/sparkle” sand nail polish from Essence? You know I’m not really into sand effect nail polishes, but when you add glitter to the mix … I’m hoked. :biggrin:

I think I chose this pretty red shade at Essence event. It would make sense as I don’t really have much time for shopping (+ when I do get 5 minutes in front of Essence stand it tends to robbed of the shades I’m looking for :silly: ) and I doubt I could have resisted Me & my lover if I saw it in such a lovely environment. Application was not problematic, formula is good pigmentation wise, but drying time could be better. I did manage to wear it for almost whole week without major damage to my manicure, so I’m giving it thumbs up even if slow drying time does annoy me. 2 coats shown in swatch.

How fast is drying time with other Essence sand nail polishes? I think few other shades would look good on me and I desperately need good staying power at the moment. Little one is learning to stand and my life will never be boring again. :biggrin:

Huh – kako se mi je pa tale Essence rdeči peščenko izmuznil? Itak že vse veste, da mi peščenkoti niso ravno najljubši finiš na svetu, ampak če dodamo v kombinacijo še bleščice … potem se jim res težko uprem. :biggrin:

Če se ne motim, sem lak dobila/izbrala na Essence eventu. Nekako bi bilo logično, glede na to da nimam ravno časa na pretek za nakupovanje kozmetike (pa še ponavadi ni na Essence stojalu iskanega odtenka … vedno izropate stojalo tik preden pridem jaz do njega  :silly: ). Pa tudi dvomim, da bi lahko v prekrasnem ambientu preskočila tako lepega rdečkota kot je Me & my lover. Nanos ni bil problematičen, formula je dobro prekrivna, hitrost sušenja pa me ni navdušila. Je pa res, da je z minimalnimi poškodbami zdržal na mojih nohtih skoraj cel teden, tako da mu oprostim počasno sušenje. Na spodnji fotografiji sem uporabila 2 plasti.

Kako hitro se sušijo drugi Essence peščenkoti? Nekaj njihovih peščenkotov imam še ogledanih in trenutno krvavo potrebujem lake z zelo dobro obstojnostjo. Naša tamala se je namreč začela postavljati na noge in po videnemu sodeč, je mojih dokaj brezskrbnih dni konec. :biggrin:

Essence: Like a day in Paradise and Like a party of my life EDTEssence toaletni vodi Like a day in Paradise in Like a party of my life

Hey ladies!

Long time no see.  :wave:

I got a chance to try out some new Essence fragrances we received as one of the gifts – part of the Essence blogger event.

So the first one is LIKE A DAY IN PARADISE.

Essence_Lile_a_day_in_paradise_EDT

Before I even read the description I smelled the Piña colada cocktail. Which is one of my all time favorite. It is really suitable for hot summer days. It’s not too much sugary and it is very fresh fragrance. It’s like summer in a bottle. I only dislike the lasting power which is like about 2 hours.

Description form Essence web page:  fine, white sandy beach, clear turquoise water and the pleasant feeling of the sun’s rays on your skin. this warm, floral and sunny fragrance whisks you away on a trip to paradise and spreads a pure summer feeling with its lemon, magnolia, apple and coconut milk scent!

  • peach
  • lemon
  • rhubarb
  • black currant

[one_third]Middle note

  • magnolia
  • apple
  • freesia

[/one_third]

[one_third_last]Base note

  • sandalwood
  • vanilla
  • coconut milk

[/one_third_last]

Second one is LIKE A PARTY OF MY LIFE.

Essence_Like_a_party_of_my_life_EDT

First when I opened the bottle and smelled lilly of the valley and lemon, after that nice sugary scent (maybe too much for my nose, but still ok). Then I tried it on my hand to see how long it lasts and first smell is from the citruses (lemon and orange) after that jasmin and last vanilla and sandalwood. I really liked it  since I love vanilla scent. Smell is soft and not too much annoying. It lasted for almost 4 hours. And after few hours I could only smell vanilla which I like.

Description on Essence web page: exuberance, fun, great music and your best friends: those are the nights that should never end! vibrant, floriental and mysterious, this fragrance contains citrus fruits, jasmine, rose and sweetness of vanilla as well as musk to convey the feeling of a party night that will never be forgotten! we love to dance.

[/one_third]
[one_third_last]Base note

Must say that both are a quite good value for price (in Slovenian drugstore about 7,49€ for 50ml and 3,49€ for 10ml).

Suitable for young girls or maybe also Maybe also for older girls like me as an every day fragrance   :silly:smilies

Till next time…

P.S. Giveaway is this time open only to the Slovenian girls due to the nature of the prize. But we will soon host one that will be international.

Pozdravljene dame!

Se že (pre)dolgo nismo nič videle  :wave:

No, dobila sem priložnost in na test dobila 2 toaletni vodici znamke Essence. Spadata med novejši v ponudbi. In ravno pravšnji za prihajajočo poletno sezono  :yes:

 

Prvi je Like a day in paradise – kot dan v paradižu. Ja, tako nekako sem si tudi predstavljala sam vonj. Vonj po plaži, kremi za sončenje, dobrim koktajlom… In res, prva stvar, ki sem jo zavohala je koktajl  Piña colada. Eden mojih najljubših in si brez njega ne predstavljam dopusta ob morju.

Essence_Lile_a_day_in_paradise_EDT

In sem šla takoj brskati kaj vse vsebuje in našla.

Opis z Essence spletne strani: bele peščene plaže, čista turkizna voda in prijeten občutek sončnih žarkov na koži. topla, cvetlična in sončna dišava te popelje v raj in razširja čisti poletni občutek z vonjem limone, magnolije, jabolka in kokosovega mleka!

[one_third]Zgornja nota

  • breskev
  • limona
  • rabarbara
  • črni ribez

[/one_third]
[one_third]Srednja nota

  • magnolija
  • jabolko
  • frezija

[/one_third]
[one_third_last]Osnovna nota

  • sandalovina
  • vanilija
  • kokosovo mleko

[/one_third_last]

Sicer nikjer ni omenjen ananas, ampak resnično diši kot Pina Colada. :biggrin:  Meni zelo všečen vonj, ne preveč sladek in ravno pravšnji za vroče poletne dni. Ko se malce razdiši, na koži ostane vonj po breskvi, vaniliji in kokosovem mleku. Minus je le obstojnost, ki je tam okoli 2 uri

Drugi je LIKE THE PARTY OF MY LIFE.

Essence_Like_a_party_of_my_life_EDT

Jaz najprej zavoham šmarnice, limono in nekaj močno sladkega (za moj okus/vonj). Na koži se takoj zavohajo citrusi, nato jasmin in na koncu vanilija in sandalovina. Načeloma mi je kar všeč. Po nekaj urah je na roki ostal prijeten vonj vanilije. Tak nežen, ne preveč vsiljiv. Se mi zdi da je za  tako ceno parfum kar obstojen (glede na ostale, ki sem jih imela priložnosti sprobati). Po testiranju se je vonj na roki obdržal recimo 3-4 ure.

Opis z Essence spletne strani: živahnost, zabava, odlična glasba in tvoji najboljši prijatelji: to so noči, ki se nikoli ne bi smele končati! živahna, cvetlična in skrivnostna, dišava vsebuje citruse, jasmin, vrtnico in sladkost vanilje kot tudi mosuš, ki pričara občutek najboljše nočne zabave, katera nikoli ne bo pozabljena! ljubimo plesati.

[one_third]Zgornja nota

  • limona
  • oranža
  • marelice
  • hijacinte
  • šmarnice

[/one_third]
[one_third]Srednja nota

  • osmanthus

  • vrtnica
  • vijolica

[/one_third]
[one_third_last]Osnovna nota

  • vanilja
  • mošus
  • sandalovina
  • cedrovina

 [/one_third_last]

Oba sta primerna za mlada dekleta ali pa tudi za malce starejša, po želji  :silly:  :perfume:

Cena v naših drogerijah je dostopna za vsak žep, in sicer 50ml 7,49€ in 10ml 3,49€.

Na Essence eventu smo dobile poleg predstavljenih parfumov tudi 10ml bratca, ki ju bomo podarili eni izmed naših bralk. Ker je pošiljanje parfumov malo bolj delikatna zadeva, bo tokrat giveaway odprt samo za slovenske bralke.
Giveaway se bo zaključil 4.5.2014.

Limited Edition

Essence Dark Romance LEEssence Dark Romance LE

First of – I’m nuts so this post will be live and updated few times as I’m determined to post it today, but there is no way I can actually do everything needed in the hour or so I have left. :silly:

Soooo – even though Twillight movies ended, Essence once again launched dark and mystical limited edition that would go well with the saga. I must admit I fell in love with Dark Romance limited edition on the spot and really put effort into getting everything I wanted … and it was a while since I was so exited. :angel:

Essence Dark Romance limited edition

There are 4 nail polishes in this LE – all with different kind of finish … at least in theory. As far as I’m concerned suede finish in Moonless Night is matte. To be suede it would have to have mattified shimmer and not just be matte creme shade. Bu still – I do like the nail polish.

The star of Essence Dark Romance LE is for majority of us nail polish freaks is The Sand aka Gothic Gold. I’m not such a huge fan of gold or sand nail polishes, but for some reason I loved this one from the first time I imagined how it would look on me. And it did not fail me – this darling feels at home on my nails. :wub: Only downside is slow drying time … but that seems to be recurring problem with Essence sand nail polishes. :think: 2 layers are all you need for full coverage … and for obvious reasons, no top coat for special finishes. :cute:

Essence Red Romance is dark and red and matte – of course I love it. :biggrin: This one had the best formula for me – rich but not too thick and it would be dream to apply if it weren’t for the matte part … or me forgetting how careful you have to be with this finish. :blush:

Now “The Suede” is I said matte but this time in dark smoky gray brown. Niiice – I love the shade so I’ll overlook the fact that it’s not really suede in my book. :naughty:

Last one I expected more from finish wise, but it is still pretty purple color. Of course I’m talking about Dark Night Starlight. It applies little bit too sheer for my taste, but nothing 2 coats can not fix. This is the only one I used top coat with. I just wish they put in bigger flakies – then it could really be stunning nail polish.

Now – I don’t have swatches or review of lipsticks and blushes. Simple reason is – I still don’t know if I should keep them all for myself or be little bit more generous and add one lipstick and one blush to the giveaway. It is December after all right? Right? :biggrin: I’ll add this part of the review after I decide if I want dark or light set.

Video review with nail polish application and Painted Love blush and lipstics swatches:

And for the end – it’s giveaway time! Thanks to lovely Nina who was in the right place at the right time, I have additional set of nail polishes to give one of you, dear readers. You know the rules, so I won’t be repeating them and most of the important ones are seen in the application anyway. Giveaway will end on the 15th of December and is INTERNATIONAL.

Ready, set, go! Good luck to all of you who’re joining in Parokeets December festivities and are nuts about Dark Romance as I am.

Ker sem rahlo zmešana in želim na vsak način še danes objaviti post, se bo le ta še nekajkrat dopolnil ta teden. Nekako ni niti teoretično možno, da naredim vse potrebno v manj kot uri, ki mi je preostala preden hčerkica in njena pravljica zavladata gospodinjstvu. :silly:

Twillight trilogija se je mogoče končala, vendar Essence očitno nadaljuje serijo mračnih in romantičnih decembrskih omejenih izdaj. Čisto iskreno priznam, da sem se na prvi pogled zaljubila v Dark Romance kolekcijo. Iz neznanih razlogov, se DM očitno ni odločil za Dark Romance, tako da je bil pravi podvig dobiti vse želeno. DM – kako ne veste, da me računamo na vas? :nervous:

Essence Dark Romance limited edition

V kolekciji so štirje laki za nohte – vsak z različnim finišem … v teoriji. Zame osebno suede oz. semiš finiš nujno potrebuje matiran šimer, da ga klasificiramo kot takšnega – Moonless Night je pa mat krem lak. A vseeno – lak je kljub temu lep.

Zvezda Essence Dark Romance LE je za večino nas freakic The Sand = Gothic Gold. Kar je najbolj zanimivo – nisem ljubiteljica niti hrapavčkov niti zlate barve, a sem se čisto zatrapala v tale lak. :biggrin: Na srečo me tudi v realnosti ni pustil na cedilu in se počuti zelo domače na mojih nohtih. :wub: Edini minus je počasnejše sušenje, vendar je to očitno skupna točka Essence lakov s sand/peščenim finišem. :think: Za res lep izgled sta potrebni dve plasti. Nadlak v tej kolekciji ni imel veliko dela … vsaj pri “posebnih” finiših ne. :cute:

Essence Red Romance je temen, mat, rdeč … seveda sva se takoj odlično razumela. :biggrin: Zame je imela tale lak najboljšo formulo – ravno prav gosto, ki je kar polzela po nohtu. Seveda pa je mat finiš zelo nadležen in ne oprosti nobene napakice … na kar sem jaz popolnoma pozabila. :blush:

Essence Dark Romance Red Romance nail polish swatch

Kvazi “The Suede” je v resnici bolj mat, kot sem že omenila. Vseeno pa je Moonless Night krasne sivo modre barve, tako da mu tokrat oprostim napačno poimenovanje. :naughty:

Od zadnjega odtenka sem pričakovala več – vsaj večje koščke šimra/bleščic. Barva je res lepa modrikasto vijolična, a jaz bi pač še malo blinga. :silly: Seveda je govora o Dark Night Starlight. Tudi nanos je bil za moj okus malo preveč prosojen, vendar pa glede na to, da sta dve plasti zadostovali za popolno prekrivnost … mu odpustim to mini napakico. 2 plati + nadlak

Khm – swatches šmink in rdečil še nimam … nisi preizkusila jih še nisem. Zakaj? Ker se nikakor ne morem odločiti, če bi giveawayju dodala še eno šminko in eno rdečilo … ampak katero?!? Vendar je le december in praznično vzdušje na blogu, tako da bi se spodobilo, da se ločim od enega kompletka, ane? :biggrin: Ta del posta bom dodala naknadno, ko se določim ali bi raje obdržala svetlejši ali temnejši set. :angel:

Nanos lakov in Painted love swatch šminke ter rdečila:

In za konec – GIVEAWAY! Zahvaljujoč krasni Nini, ki je bila na pravem mestu ob pravem času, imam za vas komplet lakov … kako bo s šminko in rdečilom bomo še videli. Pravil ne bom ponavljala, ker imajo svoj post, pa tudi aplikacija vas vodi skozi najpomembnejše. Giveaway se bo zaključil 15.12.

Pripravljene? Naj se decembrske igrice začnejo! :happy:

Essence Beauty Beats LEEssence Beauty Beats LE

I’m really later with these “swatches” so I’ll be super quick. As you probably all know, Essence is  official make-up partner of Justin Bieber’s 2013 tour. I’m definitively not a fan of his, but boy did I like the nail polishes I saw at the Essence event. So they were one of the few things that went home with me. :cute:

Essence Beauty Beats LE

Leave it to Essence to bring out such a nice nail polishes in JB’s collection. Couldn’t you have just name it something magical and make me ecstatic that I got them? :biggrin: All of the 4 nail polishes have subtle shimmer to it that is not really in your eye visible but it does effect the whole look of the manicure. I liked all 4 colors can see myself wearing the purple one often. All were nice to apply and are shown in 2 coats + lousily applied top coat. Ups … :sorry:

Meet: Baby, baby, ooh!, I’m backstage, As long as you love me and Groupie at heart.

Next Essence LE review will be hopefully … Dark Romance. I’m guilty of loving all nail polishes in that one and blushes and lipsticks. :blush:

Jajks – res se že zelo pozna z Essence Beauty Beats LE “swatchi”, tako da bo tole zelo ekspresen post. Verjetno že vrabci na veji čivkajo, da je Essence uradni lepotni partner letošnje “Believe” by Justin Bieber. Ne on ne njegov tip glasbe mi nista blizu, vendar pa so mi laki takoj padli v oči na Essence eventu … in odpeketali z menoj domov. :cute:

Essence Beauty Beats LE

Resno Essence, ste morali tako meni všečne lake dati ravno v JB kolekcijo. Niste mogli kolekcije posvetiti nečemu srčkanemu/magičnemu …? :biggrin: Vsi štirje laki imajo meni všečen subtilen šimer, ki ga težko ujamete s prostim očesom, a da manikuri poseben čar. Čeprav so mi vse štiri barve všeč, mi je vijolko prav prirasel k srcu. Vsi so se lepo nanesli, uporabila sem 2 plasti laka in 1 plast nadlaka … ki sem ga očitno zelo površno nanesla. Ups … :sorry:

Spoznajte: Baby, baby, ooh!, I’m backstage, As long as you love me in Groupie at heart.

Zdaj pa držite pesti, da bo naslednji Essence review o Dark Romance kolekciji. Všeč so mi tako laki, kot rdečila, kot šminke, osvetljevalec deluje luštno … :blush:

Essence Superheroes holo and thermo nail polishesEssence Superheroes holo in termo laka za nohte

Can you believe that I managed to stumble upon almost full stand of Essence Superheroes limited edition while buying diapers? :biggrin: I really liked the holographic and thermo effect nail polishes so I picked up those two.

Essence Superheroes

Essence Super, Man! holo effect is my favorite of the two. Easy application, strong silver base and lots of holographic glitter. What’s not to like? :silly: I have very limited time for swatches now and lot to tell/show you, so I’ll be doing more one and 2 nail swatches. :sorry: Here is the comparison of 2 layers of Maybelline Colorama nail polish no. 49 (from my Impulsive shopping post) and Essence Super, Man! (thumb). I used 2 coats of top coat.

Essence Super Man vs Maybelline 49 holo nail polish
Essence Super Man (Superheroes LE) vs Maybelline 49 holo nail polish

Essence Fantastic Girl thermo effect nail polish is more sheer than Super, Man. It still has decent coverage, but my tips were slightly visible. As far as I could tell, top coat did not stop thermo effect from working as it should. :thumb: Fantastic Girl is pink when hot and purple in lover temperatures. In reality it’s pink most of the time indoors, with purple tips when temperatures drop and more purple outside now that winter is nearing. 2 coats + top coat.

Photos are not the best for presenting effect nail polishes, so I made super short video just to show you holo sparkle and temperature changing in action.

Did I miss anything by not buying anything else from Essence Superheroes LE?

Si lahko mislite, da sem med kupovanjem plenic naletela na polno Essence Superheroes stojalo v Mullerju? :biggrin: Holografski in termo lak sta mi bila všeč, tako da sta pristala v nakupovalni košarici.

Essence Superheroes

Essence Super, Man! holo efekt je moj favorit. Krasno se nanaša, srebrna baza je zelo dobro prekrivna, pa tudi na holografskih bleščicah niso šparali = meni pisan na kožo lak. :silly: Zaradi pomanjkanja časa, bo sedaj manj “pravih” swatchev, ampak bo več primerjav na prstu dveh … Tokrat sem ga primerjala z Maybelline Colorama lakom št. 49 (del tega posta). Essence Super, Man! je nanesen na palec. Oba laka sta prikazana v dveh plasteh + 2 lasti nadlaka.

Essence Super Man vs Maybelline 49 holo nail polish
Essence Super Man (Superheroes LE) vs Maybelline 49 holo lak za nohte

Essence Fantastic Girl je lak s termo efektom – spreminja barvo glede na temperaturo. Ni tako prekriven kot Super, Man!, vendar še vedno ne gre za čisto prosojen odtenek. So pa konice rahlo vidne. Zame je bila dobra novica, da nadlak ni preprečil termo laku normalnega delovanja. :thumb: Fantastic Girl je roza pri toplejših temperaturah in vijola pri hladnejših. Pri meni je to izgledalo nekako takole – roza v zaprtih prostorih z vijola konico proti večeru, ko je temperatura padla za stopinjo/dve in vijola zunaj v času, ko se nam približuje zima. 2 plasti + nadlak.

Mi je lahko žal, ker nisem kupila še kaj drugega iz Essence Superheroes LE?

Revlon Charming nail polish + stampingRevlon Charming lak + holo vzorček

One of the questions I was asked few times over the almost 5 years since this blog exists was why don’t we write more about Revlon. Since this is one of the top drugstore brands in the world. My answer was always the same – Revlon in Slovenia got stuck in time. We got nothing new or it took years to change something on the stands … Than couple of years ago thing slowly started to change. First we finally got new nail polish shades and lately Revlon is getting more and more space on my WL. Too much actually, as worth of just “I really want” products is more than 100 EUR. :silly:

Revlon Charming nail polish
Revlon Charming nail polish

One thing that rarely fails are Revlon nail polishes so I gladly agreed to do the review of one of their shades. I would love to see some of the ColorStay range nail polishes in Europe as those rock, but regular ones are also very good. I chose Revlon Charming – pale lilac creme nail polish. Depending from light source, it can get slightly more warm or cool tone. Application – smooth, 2 coats for perfect look and as always I used top coat. Brush is more old fashion narrow one but is easy to manage. Charming may be more spring like shade, but I like to wear this kind of pale colors as stamping base thought the year. Normally I would prefer to do gradient of sort and then stamp but I was not it the mood for the long manicure session at the time this swatch was made … big belly and swollen fingers were in my way. :biggrin: I used one of the latest Essence stamping plates and Color Club Wild At Heart holo nail polish. Unfortunately Essence all over image was too short for my not really long nails. :sigh:

Which Revlon product is your staple and you could not live without it … so I know what to put on my WL … like it’s not already too long. :biggrin:

*I received nail polish for review purposes from Revlon Slovenia

V zadnjih petih letih odkar obstaja Parokeets blog, sem že kar nekajkrat dobila vprašanje, zakaj ne pišemo več o Revlon znamki. Konec koncev je Revlon verjetno najbolj prodajana drogerijska znamka, ki jo najdemo vsepovsod po svetu. Odgovor je bil vedno isti – ker je slovenski Revlon obtičal nekje v preteklosti. Na moje veselje, se je pred parimi leti zadeva začela premikati. Najprej smo dobili nekaj novih odtenkov lakov, v zadnjem letu je pa toliko novosti, da jim že prav komaj sledim. V bistvu, čisto preveč, ker je na mojem seznamu želja že za več kot 100 EUR samo Revlonovih izdelkov … in to samo tistih z oznako “res si jih želim” :silly:

Revlon Charming nail polish
Revlon Charming lak za nohte

Eden izmed Revlonovih izdelkov, ki redko odpove, so njihovi lak. Če bi ColorStay linija prišla v Evropo, bi skakala do stropa, vendar pa je tudi osnovna verzija zelo dobra. Tako da mi ni bilo ravno težko pristati na oceno Revlon Charming laka za nohte. Gre za zelo svetel vijola odtenek s krem finišem. Podton je hladen, vendar pa se odvisno od tipa svetlobe nagiba včasih v bolj topel spekter. Nanos je bil čisto neproblematičen – praktično poezija. Čopič je še ena tistih ožjih izvedb stare šole, ki omogoča res lepo delanje krivin. Uporabila sem 2 plasti in nadlak. Charming je sicer bolj spomladanski odtenek, vendar je v kombinaciji s štempljanjem zame primeren kot celoletna barva. Ponavadi bi sicer najprej naredila gradient in šele nato konadirala, vendar pa v času, ko je tale manikura nastajala, enostavno nisem bila pri voljo … ogromen trebuh in zatekli prsti sindrom. :biggrin: Vzorec je z ene izmed zadnjih Essence ploščic, lak pa Color Club Wild At Heart holo lepotec. Na žalost je Essence vzorec premajhen za moje nohte. :sigh:

Kateri izmed Revlonovih izdelkov je za vas nepogrešljiv? Da vidim, če moram še kaj nujno dodati na seznam želja … kot da že tako ali tako ni čisto predolg. :biggrin:

Essence Happy Holidays limited editionEssence Happy Holidays omejena izdaja

Slovenian beauty bloggers had the honor of being first to see Essence Happy Holidays LE stand in person as part of the Essence/Catrice blogger event. :w00t: I’m sorry to say that my photos did not turn out OK as I was more anxious to see the products (at the time I had no idea LE is something not seen before) than take photos.

For me, the highlights were definitively snowflake topper and nail polish duos. I’m not really sure who’s swatch sticks I took photos off (raise your hand whoever you are :silly: ), but they showcase all 4 nail polish duo combinations. For me red and pink are not that special, green was totally yummy and I’m really sorry I didn’t take brown(?) one also.  :nails:

There were no more toppers left when I reached Happy Holidays stand, but I did get Light Up The Tree! green nail polish duo. :angel: Green part is either very deep green or dark forest green – depending on light source. Formula is one of those pigmented creamy poetries to apply and if your precise kind of woman, then one coat can be enough. :thumb: Now, topper part was surprise – this baby is not as sheer as I expected it to be. I only used one coat for swatch and as you can see, clear base is loaded with silver hexagons and holographic glitter. This duo is definitively getting my stamp of approval. :biggrin:

*I chose reviewed nail polish on Essence blogger event

Slovenske beauty blogerke smo imele to čast, da smo na Essence/Catrice blogger eventu, prve v živo videle Essence praznično kolekcijo – Happy Holidays. :w00t: Na žalost so moje fotografije stojala bolj kot ne zanič, ker sem se bolj osredotočila na brskanje po njem kot fotografiranje. To je bilo sicer na čisto samem začetku prireditve, tako da niti nisem vedela, da je edicija kaj posebnega (ja, trenutno sploh ne sledim kolekcijam :blush: ).

Zame osebno vrhunec kolekcije predstavljata “snežni” nadlak in dvojčki lakov. Nimam pojma katera blogerka je bila tako pridna in naredila swatch palčke, tako da naj prosim dvigne roko. :silly: Gre pa za swatche vseh štirih dvojčkov. Rdeč in roza me nista pritegnila, ker sta malo preveč podobna dvema, ki ju že imam, zelen je bil pa naravnost božanski. Ko sedaj gledam tole fotografijo, pa mi je žal, da nisem vzela še rjavega(?) dvojčka.

Preden sem prišla do Hapy Holidays stojala, so bili že vsi nadlaki razgrabljeni, je pa zato Light Up The Tree! zelenko postal moj. :angel: Zelen lak je ali globoko temno zelen, ali pa temno gozdnato zelene barve … odvisno od tipa svetlobe. Formula je tista krasna, ki se pojavi ravno 1x letno – krem, pigmentirana poezija za nanašanje. In če ste zelo natančne, je ena plast zadosti za popolno prekrivnost. :thumb: Stran z nadlakom je bila tudi prijetno presenečenje. V prozorni bazi so namreč uspeli natalčiti ogromno bleščic, ki se lepo nanašajo in dejansko prekrijejo veliko površine. Za swatch sem uporabila samo eno plast, ki pa je lepo preslikala srebrne šesterokotnike in holografske bleščice na nohte. Požegnam. :biggrin:

Ko pride kolekcija na police, se bom podila za trepalnicami, nadlakom in dvojčkom št. 1. Ve?
