Hi guys . Happy Monday. Everyone have a great weekend ?
As I shared on my Instagram account HERE I got a few products from the Limited Edition Essence Happy Girls are Pretty Collection. The whole collection is gorgeous ( and if you are a nail polish lover I would recommend you RUN to pick some up ) . The collection has two eyeliners, a contour set, a blush , two eyeshadow palettes , six nail polishes, a nail file and two lip colours. I didn't NEED everything , so I only got the products I could see I will be using , and I thought why not share it here as well.
This palette I can see being the most popular with five gorgeous nude shades. The eye shadows are also super adorable with a ball of yarn and the word "knit" engraved across. The palette is quite steady and clicks closed tightly , so perfect for travelling (which is why I bought these two palettes ) .
It was lying in my pretty pile after being photographed , as I knew I have too many blushes open currently , but after seeing everyone on Instagram post product pictures I just couldn't wait any longer. So I opened the blush , swirled in my brush , and felt disappointed.
The first time I used the blush, I could hardly tell I put on anything. I thought okay no problem , I can use a little more. After about half an hour, it disappeared off my face completely and I could hardly tell I had anything on.
I decided this blush needed another chance though - I mean LOOK how pretty it is. The next few times I pressed a little harder with my brush when I swirled it , at least this time you could see colour on my cheeks . But luckily after being used for a week the pigmentation did improve - I am sharing a swatch of the blush after a few uses. The colour is pretty, I just wish that the blush had this right from the start, as I was ready to give up on this blush after a day or two.
This is another colour that just screamed my name. It's gorgeous , girly and a creamy milky pink. It is perfection in a bottle. This is a gorgeous light milky pink, that again, can easily be worn to work , and on weekends for a gorgeous girly manicure. I can seriously say , this collection of polishes is mind blowing. I might even pick up another one or two. This is the perfect everyday shade for me . Again this polish lasted about 5/6 days on me , and I'm really tough on my hands.
Happy Girls Rock Nail Polish
I will start off by saying , Essence makes the most amazing Matte shades lately. If you remember I also raved about the Essence No Make Up Look in Powdery Rose HERE . These shades glide on easily , dries down extremely quickly , and I just can't get enough. I can totally see myself using this one to the very end as well . This is a gorgeous lavender grey colour , perfect for summer, but I can still see myself rocking this colour in Autumn and Winter too. I wore this polish for 6 days without any chips - for a matte polish that is extremely magical especially since I'm super tough on my hands .
The nail polishes retail for R34,95 each.
