Now this limited edition I will always rememberer – not necessarily by the products but the way I bought them. I was in Muller shopping with my better half, when I spotted Essence Ticket To Paradise and Catrice Matchpoint. I knew I wanted to have two things from Matchpoint, but I didn’t even want to go near Ticket To Paradise. Lately I managed to acquire whole shelf of product I really want to review, not mention whole rack of still unswatched and even more horrifying, unworn polishes. Add to the mix lack of space for all the new things and you’ll understand why I seriously did not want to buy more nail polishes. But my darling asked me like 5 times if I was really sure that I didn’t want to check out new LE as I’m not likely to bump into in again and I caved in. Yes – it was really hard to tempt me into checking out the stand … not.
And you know what – I loved both nail polishes. I could easily live without cream eyeshadow, but nail polishes … pure perfection. Finally new Essence nail polishes that are easy to apply, have nice brush, interesting colors … and my absolute favorite, they didn’t bubble even in major heat under drafty conditions. Maybe that is the answer – apply newer Essence nail polish in 35°C (95°F)? :D
Essence Dive With Me To The Island is one really gorgeous nail polish in mint-ish shade. It’s absolutely no surprise that color would appeal to me, but I was unsure about formula. But boy did I love it. It’s not full coverage, but not sheer either. I guess jelly would be the closest finish match, but not 100% accurate either. 2 coats look just about perfect to me – formula and color wise. BTW in this post we are playing game called – we’re all pretending not to notice Gejba’s lousy application.
Essence Tropical Heat I bought as combo nail polish for Dive With Me To The Island. They looked so cute together and I just couldn’t leave goldy behind even if it’s not really my color. This is very sheer shade and as you can see it doesn’t have full coverage even after 3 coats. Tiny shimmer gives it nice foil finish, application was easy and all of that good stuff I already mentioned.
But all that sheerness came really hand for layering – just look at this pretty combo made with Dive With Me To The Island and one layer of Tropical Heat.
Essence Tropical Heat cream eyeshadow I bought just because I always skip on this kind of not really opaque and sparkly formula and I said to myself, “What the heck, let’s see if I still have this kind of eyeshadow.” Conclusion – yeah, I still don’t like it. And stying power was not really good on my super oily eyelids.
Are other two nail polishes also good? Now I’m tempted to hunt them down just to see if they have the same formula as green one. :D
