Yay! I can finally present you swathes of the Eclipse TE. I have to say that it was a lot of work, because I wanted to show really good pictures and some ideas. Let me show you what I prepared for you. I have to warn you that there are tons of pictures included in the post. I hope you’ll like them.

First the picture I already showed you. All the things I swatched for you.

Haul: Essence - Eclipse Trend Edition
Essence – Eclipse Trend Edition

Let me start with nail polishes. There are five different shades in the collection.

Ready To Be Bitten? is a true surprise for me. It’s very nice semi sheer polish with glass flecked shimmer. I love it!

With one coat it’s a nice sheer polish …

… look at the nice glass flecked shimmer …

… with three coats it’s more opaque but you can still see the VNL. It doesn’t bother me. It’s so lovely, shy but noticeable, that you just have to love it.

Hide Bella Hide is another one that surprised me. I thought I wouldn’t like it at all, but I think it’s nice. It’s a frosty metallic silver shade. When you apply this shade, have in mind that you apply a frost and metallic shade. But for a metallic it’s really easy to apply. There are two coats shown in the picture below.

Don’t Bite Me – Kiss Me is a berry shade. You say, another berry shade? Yes, but this time it isn’t a dupe of anything I have so far from Essence. This time it has a purple shimmer, which is hardly noticeable. Two coats shown in the picture below.

Thirsty? is a jelly dark red shade. Very pretty! Two coats shown in the picture below.

Last shade from the Eclipse collection is a shade everybody was excited to see. It’s a jelly black base with silver and purple glitter. Lovely but very dark, almost black. The glitter is of course more visible in the bottle, but it’s also noticeable on the nails. Let me present you Undead?

These were the polishes. Nice shades and no application issues.

Next are four lip glosses.

All are nice. My favourite is the red one, which is the most pigmented of them all. The applicator is bigger and very nice. I forgot to take pictures of the applicator. Sorry. But I’ll make it up to you with the first picture of my lips here on Parokeets. My lips are nothing to show off with, but I really wanted to show you this beautiful red lip gloss called Lunch At Cullen’s.

Ok, these were the lip glosses. Next are the swatches of the baked duo eyeshadows, which you can apply wet or dry. I swatched them dry and wet and over a base for you.

The eyeshadows are the biggest disappointment in the collection if you ask me. These are hard as a stone. I wouldn’t recommend using these without a base. These are OK over a base and best when applied wet. They also have some bigger silver particles, which I don’t like. All in all, I’d say that these aren’t worth buying unless you are going to use them wet.

Although I’m not fond of these eyeshadows I wanted to see if I can make a decent make up with them. I applied all of them over a base and the liner is applied wet.

OK, the make up isn’t bad, is it? The eyeshadows aren’t useless I guess, but are nothing to rave about.

I think the Eclipse collection is good. It has some really nice products. My top picks are: Lunch At Cullen’s lip gloss, Ready To Be Bitten? nail polish and Undead? nail polish.

Please let me know what are your thoughts about the collection?

I hope you liked my presentation. I have to say I’m exhausted.

  1. The polishes are 10 ml;} It’s quite big bottle ;}

    By the way I am amazed how beautiful “hide belle hide” nail polish looks on nails <3

  2. Thirsty me mika, mislim pa da bo po tem prispevku preden jaz pridem do polic že vse razgrabljeno :unsure:

  3. Mene tudi ni presunila tale kolekcija. Glede senčil se popolnoma strinjam, prav tako mi ni všeč niti svinčnik za oči. Moj zmagovalec je rdeči glos, ampak ga moram še nekje dobiti.

  4. super prispevek! res lepo, da je toliko fotografij! hvala za trud, sedaj pa samo še akcija, da me spet ne razočarajo izropane police! :wink:

  5. Awesome swatches!! I suspected I’d like the darkest polish a lot! So pretty :-D I’m gonna link to this post if that’s okay.

  6. Love Undead polish, but sadly here in Italy no Eclipse TE will arrive  :smell:

  7. Congrats on all the followers!! Thanks for a great review. Undead looks lovely! I wish I could get my hands on this collection =(

  8. Maestra, hvala za tvoj trud! K sreči bom to kolekcijo lahko preskočila.
    :fju:
    In seveda čestitke za 300 followerjev! :happy:

  9. Imam občutek, da bi znal biti lak Don’t bite me precej podoben Essence All I Want LE, 02 Happy Holiday. Tudi tu gre za temno malinast odtenek z modrimi bleščicami.
    Ta in Thirsty? sta mi sicer edina všeč od lakov, ampak imam za oba duplikate. Thirsty? se mi zdi sumljivo podoben Rimmel Rapid Ruby. Zato ju bom kar preskočila.
    Ampak rdeči glos … oh, I’m in love. Tega moram nujno imeti. :happy:
    Ostalo me pušča ravnodušno in hladnokravno. :angry:

  10. Wow, kakšni swatchi. :w00t: Res si se potrudila, Maestra. :yes: In skoraj nič mi ni všeč, mogoče le Ready to be bitten? Seveda.  :haha: Kaj pa Undead? bi bil primeren za konad mogoče? Krasen giveaway se obeta!!  :yes: :wave: Čestitke! :happy:

  11. Super prispevek, res se vidi, da si se ful potrudila. HVALA za izčrpno poročilo :love:
    Imela bi samo Undead, oz bom šla v lov za njim :happy:
    Laki res niso nič posebnega, razen Undead-a. Glosi me ne zanimajo. Senčke pa tudi niso nič tako posebnega, pa še škoda ker so tako trde :w00t:
    Komaj čakam, da se igra začne :happy: :happy: :happy:

  12. Po pravici povedano, me ni pretirano navdušila. K sreči, saj se v LJ Essence kolekcije precej težko dobijo. :wink:  Od lakov so mi lepi Thirsty?, Don’t bite me – kiss me in Undead, s tem, da sta Thirsty? in Don’t bite me – kiss me že prav dolgočasno ponavljajoča. Don’t bite me – kiss me  je sploh odtenek obdobja, Thirsty? imam pa tudi že doma nekaj podobnih odtenkov, pa malo morje jih je še za dobiti. Tudi Undead bi se verjetno dalo dobiti dupe, ampak se mi zdi še najbolj izviren, njega pohopsam, če ga kje najdem.  :yes: 
    Od glosov pogojno rdeči, ampak nič za :drop:  ,  senčila mi pa sploh niso všeč. Skratka, nič kaj dosti zame.  :)
    Pohvale za super prispevek in fotografije! :) Se pozna vložen trud! :)

  13. Thanks for the review and pics! :thumb: Do you think the silver would work for Konading, or is it not as opaque as other silver polishes that are often used for stamping (ChG Millennium, the silver Romantique one, Orly Shine, etc)? TIA!

  14. Meni so lakci zelo všeč :wub: prav tako rdeč gloss je božanski :stars:   senčila so mi tudi všeč, le škodas da so tako trda kot praviš :ermm: Poimenovanje izdelkov pa je zelo psrečeno :love:   Ok priznam, sem velik Twilight fan :blush:
    .-= Lyra´s last post … Essence: Surfer Babe Trend Edition =-.

  15. Laki so izgledali obetavni… pa so precej dolgočasni. Ne vem no… Če ne bi bili ”Eclipse” po mojem sploh ne bi bilo toliko zanimanja.

  16. I haven’t swatched anything (yet) but I got almost every polish- except the pink/magenta one..
    also i wanted to buy the red gloss but someone already used it :angry:
    guess I have to wait till they arrive at dm :happy:
    and I bought all the e/s even tough i seldomly wear e/s :whistle:

  17. Samo laki za nohte: – Don’t bite me – kiss me, Thirsty?, Undead? :wub: Ostalo me ne interesira (:

  18. mah…men ni nič všeč. laki res niso nič posebnega, nič novega…
     
    edina stvar, za katero sem že zadnjič napisala, da bi jo imela, je rdeč gloss. In na tej fotki zgleda naravnost prekrasno! Hočččem

  19. čudovito! sem vedela že od začetka, da me šesti čut ne vara ko sem si zaželela celotno kolekcijo… če bi mi jo le uspelo kje dobiti  :wub:
