Dear friend just came from Germany and brought me all four polishes and eyeliner palette from Essence Whoom! Boooom!!! TE.
Essence decided to give us fresh/spring colors in their “pop art” collection.
The lightest shade is You’ve Got The Art. Pastel yellow shade with green tones. This shade can be more greenish or yellowish – depending on light source. Application was not easy, but two coats were enough for decent look.
Orange shade is called Andy, You’re A Star. Very interesting shade that can be very lively or almost pastel like orange. I only managed to capture lively orange on the photo and to do that I had to wait until the next day for sun to come up. :D Application was easier than with You’ve Got The Art polish.
Roy’s Red is berry shade … I guess. I looks deep pink most of the time but it does lean on the red side every once in a while.
The blurple in the Whoom! Boooom!!! TE is called Chacalaca. Application was easy, one coat is enough for full opacity. I was sure this shade will look awful on me, but I was glad to see that I was wrong. This shade had more than one side too – it can be blue, purple, blue-purple …
Each 8 ml polish costs 1,79 EUR.
Whoom! Boooom!!! TE had another interesting product for me – creme eyeliner palette – Kawoom. Cardboard box with magnetic closure contains four colors and a brush. I don’t think this kind of packaging will keep eyeliners from drying out in record time, but let us hope that I’m wrong, since colors look really nice.
I do not like the brush at all, but I did the swatches on the right side of the photo with it … the best I could do. It lacks firmness to be really good eyeliner brush.
I like the colors in this palette … even though the lightest eyeliner looks almost invisible on me. Green shade is my favorite – I love the gold shimmer in green base. Blues is not really my color and darker gray shade has too much shimmer in it but I can see using both of them from time to time. I intended to use this palette as my secondary base, but since darker colors leave color stain on my skin I’ll stick with original usage.
I had some extra time so I did a quick test on my eyes – eyeliners started to fade after couple of hours, green and blue had best staying power, but the green one irritated my eyes.
Cream eyeliner palette cost 2,99 EUR in Germany.
