additional Essence Blossoms etc. haul ;)

since i met the display of this collection everywhere, some products hopped into my basket that i was initially unsure of.

the lipgloss in #01 Flowerkissed is a medium mauvey pink with tiny pink microshimmer which is not visible on your lips. it contains 4ml and costs 1.75€. the texture reminds me of the Stay With Me glosses that i like so much. it's a glossy milky pink on my lips and is quite pigmented. it has a artificial sweet scent and is not sticky. the lasting time is around 2-3 hours.

i also got 3 nailpolishes. they contain 7ml and cost 1.75€ each. they come in high thin bottles (which i always am afraid to knock over) with long flat brushes. the consistency is creamy, they apply quite streaky and need two coats to achieve an even result. drying time is average. they need a shiny top coat.

#02 I Like is a muted pastel mint green with blue shimmer. reminds me of some Chanel polishes ;)

#03 My Yellow Fellow is a light pastel yellow with yellow-gold shimmer. i don't like the colour (yet?) but it reminded me of the Chanel Mimosa Lacquer that will come out in their summer look. so i wanted to be prepared for comparison swatches ;)

#05 Forget-Me-Not is a lavender blue with blue shimmer.


  1. Oh man ich hab bisher noch nicht einen Aufsteller gefunden... Werde mich heute auf die Jagd begeben und wenn ich ganz München abgrasen muss!

  2. I Love cornflower blue shades for nails and currently have on a Models Own polish called Lemon Meringue its lovely, a pastel pale lemon :) x

  3. The lipgloss looks sooo pretty!

  4. Along with the blush and the powder, I got both lipglosses & was happy about the similar consistency to the stay with me glosses as well. Really like them so far and the flower print on the packaging is quite beautiful.

    I really appreciate the launching of tons of pretty pastel polishes this spring, though it is a little late for me, as I made a dozen of frankenpolishes like this more than a year ago, lol. Then I couldn't find any nice pastels on the market, but now they're everywhere, haha.


  5. yes, i feel very pleased with essence these days! i made some very nice finds, i almost feel like an essence sales associate on here, introducing one essence product and another, but there are still some to come ;)
