Essence Legends Of The Sky TE is one of those rare collections where everything that could go wrong … And I don’t mean product wise but on my end.
First I was unable to get my hands on red nail polish from this TE, which made me sad. I got 4 out of 6 shades available. I make video first and then proceed with nail swatches. But I made a mess of things before I even got to swatching. So I officially pronounced video to be cursed. :D But when I saw the weirdish colors of nail swatches on my monitor, I just declared that Legends Of The Sky TE is cursed.
All the polishes in this collection have muted colors, little bit thicker formula and applied well. I used 2 coats for all swatches.
I Wear My Flying Goggles At Night is the lightest shade. Like most of the shades in Essence Legends Of The Sky TE, this one has me puzzled. It looks (slightly) brownish gray most of the time, but under artificial light gets few shades warmer.
Like Leo’s Pilot Jacket was the hardest to photograph as it looks a lot greener inside than outside. I edited all the photos (hence the weird skin tones) to show you at least approximate colors. It’s very understated grayed out yellowish green … ideal to stamp over.
I Am A Viator is the weirdest brownish color (with hint of red and violet) that I ever saw. But it actually looks great on me … just not as chocolate brown as on swatch. I didn’t use top coat with this one.
Last one I found was No Better Way To Sky. Very lovely burnt orange that I wish Essence included in one of the fall editions. This is something I would love to wear when trees are dropping the leaves … Again swatch is to washed out and not the almost pumpkin orange it should be.
I did try to stamp with I Am A Viator over No Better Way To Sky but as everything else in this trend edition it didn’t turn out as planed so I’m not showing you that one. :D But you can stamp with it … if you want paler image.
Now From Zero To Hero eyeshadow palette left me speechless.
I had to decide whether to get blush or palette and as there was tester for palette and not the blush … palette went home with me. I love all the eyeshadows except the blueish grays on the left … those colors don’t look too hot on me. Apricot, Red and Brown are more pigmented than others but they are all so soft and easy to work with that it’s joy to use them. I already wore 2 or 3 makeups with this palette and I LOVE it so far. I would recommend this to all the beginners to experiment with (you have 2 matte shades, highlighter, brown …) and to those that wish to have orange and red eyeshadow in their collection that are easier to use in everyday makeup than those insanely pigmented ones. Swatch is made over eyeshadow base – 2 coats.
- 10 ml (0.33 fl.oz.) nail polish 1,89 EUR (2.4 USD)
- eight eyeshadow palette (5,5g=0,19 oz) 3,89 EUR (5 USD)
How do you like Essence Legends Of The Sky trend edition? Did anybody get red nail polish? Is it as pretty as on promo photos?

I would love to try some of the new polishes and the blush but I have never seen a new LE collection here for the past 4 months or so…I hope they are not pulling the brand out in US.
I love No Better Way To Sky although all the rest are also very nice ♥
lakići su mi super, samo bih zadnjeg preskočila, paletica isto dobro izgleda, ništa spektakularno ali sasvim pristojna neutralna kolekcija :bow:
Pri tej kolekciji me pa nič posebno ne pritegne.
Več za nas. :biggrin:
In res me čisto noben lakec ne prepriča. Moja denarnica pa je srečna :whistle: Je pa tudi meni paletka zelo všeč, pa tudi blush se mi dopade :yes: Pa držim pesti, da se rdeči lakec vseeno kje najde za tebe :yes:
Jaz sem kar potrebovala take odtenke, tako da sem kar vse zagrabila. :silly:
imam paletko in je res suuuuper :) vsak dan jo uporabljam :)
I love the colors of the nail polishes, especiall orange! =)
Orange is really lovely. :nails:
Thank you for the swatches, they’re really helpful :)
i really love these, unfortunatly i don’t think they are/will be available in my country :(
Hope you at least get them in a swap.
Jaz pa sem hotela kupiti paleto in rjavkasto šminko, v Mullerju na Obali itak nismo nič dobili, v soboto pa sem šla v Ljubljano, uspela dobit paletko (3 so imeli in vse so bile že sprobane, katastrofa D:). Šminko pa sem našla, bila je zadnja, seveda sprobana in se mi je zagnjusila, tako da je nisem kupila u.u Upam da bomo tudi v Kopru dobili to kolekcijo, prej al slej…. ._.
Laki pa niso zame, čeprav zgledajo kar simpatični :P
Škoda da originalno ne zapakirajo izdelkov tako, da se jih ne bi dalo tako enostavno “sprobati”. :sigh:
Se popolnoma strinjam, malo selotejpa ob strani in je problem rešen :yes:
Kupila sem samo blush, ostalo me nekako ni pritegnilo…
Koliko je kaj šimrast?
I have the eyshadow palette and a lipstick, the white one. I have tested 2 shades of the palette yet, I wish the green would be more pigmented! But the colours are all pretty, they have a good mix of neutral and brights. I wish I could buy Essence more easily in the UK though!
I love the green because it’s not that pigmented. :biggrin: I needed something little less pigmented so I could layer it heavily for when I need really long lasting everyday makeup.
the No Better Way To Sky nail polish is awesome! their LE polishes are way better than the regular ones, so I think I’ll get this baby :D
I agree – LE polishes are way better than regular ones. :yes:
Jaz sem si vzela paletko in oranzen lak, rdec me sploh ni pritegnil, nevem bolj so mi vsec temno rdeci. Mogoce ga bom vzela; ce ga kje slucajno vidim :) Nad paleto sem pa cisto navdusena, odlicne barve so in lepo se nanasajo ter mesajo..
Ane, da je lepa paletka? :w00t:
Jaz sem itak obsedena z rdečimi lakci. :sorry:
Wow, you already have them! I can’t wait to get my hands on these. Especially the orange is gorgeous :)
Orange one is really nice – just the kind of orange that I needed. :thumb:
Mene ni nič pritegnilo (niso moje barve) in še čakam na Crystaliced kolekcijo – punce, ne mi vsega pobrat! :wave:
Meni je iz Crystaliced bolj malo všeč, tako da ne bom kriva, če bo vse hitro izginilo. :biggrin:
OMG, nailpolishes are beautiful!!! :wub:
They’re cute. :nails:
I only liked the blush :) I’m going to try to get it here in Poland :) The orange polish looks nice… we’ll see ;) Greets!
It’s shimmery and I don’t really like shimmery blushes. And as there was no tester … Hope you get the blush … and then report how you like it. :silly:
It’s a very nice collection I love the nail polish colors.
It’s lovely for those of us who love understated colors too. :silly:
