Another limited edition of Essence, or a Trend Edition, as they call it, is out now.
I was really looking forward to the "Love Letters" collection, which is full of pastels, but this will unfortunately not be released in Greece. However, the "Kalinka" has a few things worth getting.
The collection consists of:
3 Mono Eyeshadows
2 Eyebrow styler
3 Nail polishes
2 Duo lip cream
2 Hair Mascaras
and a stunning purse in the style of traditional matryoshki dolls!
I'd love to get the eyeshadow in "02-Babushka me" and the nailpolish in "03-From Russia with love" (I've seen swatches online and they look good!). So hopefully I'll find them next time.
Let's take a closer look on what I got:
The blush "01-East side story", which is a beautiful apricot color with a slight sheen to it. It's very pigmented, but a bit powdery. It doesn't have the longest lasting power (it is still good, don't get me wrong!), but still it's worth every penny it costed.
The eyebrow styler is a winner, for sure, and totally worth its money. It is double ended, one side is clear, waxy and the other has the color and there's a handy brush on the cap. I already love it and have worn it many times, leaving my MAC Lingering at rest. What I love the most is that unlike the other color it does not appear warm, red. If you are a redhead, go and get that!!!
So, ladies, will you get something?
