In Croatia (our south neighboring country), they’re currently selling Essence Sweet Temptation Trend Edition. If I’m not mistaken – this edition was available in Austria and Germany last August and I don’t remember seeing it in Slovenia.

To us, the most interesting part of the collection were nail polishes. I personally had my eyes set on Devil’s Flavour – dark purple shade. And I mean really dark purple – something for all of vampy nail lovers out there.

Maestra was kind enough to take pictures of both polishes available in this edition. With both shades she used 2 coats.

Second polish is Tool Of Attraction – fleshy pink color that fits nicely in this year natural shades trend.

Part of the edition are three glosses: Tool Of Attraction, Mademoiselle and Devil’s Flavour. They’re note very pigmented, smell like candy and have very fine shimmer.

Swatch taken with flash in the same order as in previous picture:

All three shades are very wearable and I could not pick favorite among them.

My least favorite part of this collection are trio eyeshadows. There are two sets: Mademoiselle and Touch of Velvet.

On picture shown with Touch of Velvet blush:

Swatches are made without the base, with thick layers of eyeshadow used.

All tree colors in Mademoiselle trio are lovely but have poor staying power. Colors are more pigmented than in Touch of Velvet trio, but I was still not impressed. Darkest shad is dark purple but looks almost brown on me and it crumbled during application. Lightest shade is light gray and middle brown. All three shades have shimmer in them.

Only darkest part of Touch of Velvet trio is pigmented, other two are more of a highlighters. The lightest part is bluish gray matte and of no use to me.

Two eyeliner in edition – En Vogue in Deep Allure – are soft and well pigmented. En vouge is gray and Deep Allure muted purple.

My favorite in this edition is Touch Of Velvet blush. It’s just enough pigmented to give me healthy color. It’s something between brownish-ping and peachy-pink in color depending on lighting. I wish they put less of multicolored shimmer in it, but it’s not really intrusive.

If you’re about to visit Croatia in near future, and like one of the products in this trend edition, I recommend visiting one of their DMs. :D

  1. Danes sem preizkusila oba svinčnika za obrobo oči, prijetno sta me presenetila. Pa tako sem oklevala, predno sem ju kupila, c c c :whistle:

  2. Komaj sem čakala na tale prispevek, Gejba, odlično!
    Ta teden sem na policah v HR DM-ih našla komaj še kakšen primerek iz te kolekcije. Škoda, da senčke niso boljše, vijolična je videti tako lepa :w00t: . Glos je še mene navdušil, čeprav ponavadi hodim mimo njih. Luštne stvari, ni kaj.

  3. joooj, ‘mesnato roza barva’ laka je čudovita! Pa devil’s flavour gloss za ustnice :heart:  zelo všečno in super prikaz kolekcije, gejba!

  4. Zelo lepe fotografije, Gejba!
    Meni so iz kolekcije seveda najbolj všeč laki, ki se nanašajo brez vsakih težav ali lis. Oba odtenka sta dobro pigmentirana. Na fotografijah sta oba nanesena v dveh nanosih. Všeč so mi tudi glosi in svinčnika. Ostalo me niti ne pritegne.

  5. U.. lustno.
    Prvic vidim to kolekcijo, lustno! Najbolj so mi vsec glosi (in to prav vsi trije) ter Devil’s Flavour lakec. Lustno..  Morem razmislit kako naj si uredim policko za lake, da jih bom imela kam dati.. Evo ze vem. Se eno polico si bom omislila ;).

    Lustna kolekcija..  Ampak danes mi pasejo koralni odtenki..  (soncek je, lalala..  in ja no meni se dogaja)..
