Essence Spring 2013 New Fragrance Collection now in Romania – Info & Photos

Hello beauties!

I’ve been wanting to write this post for so long but for some reason I always  postponed it. Essence launched a Fragrance Line a few months ago but finally it became available in Romania only this spring. Some of the new fragrances were released as limited edition sets for Holiday 2012 but the good news is that most of these fragrances are suitable to be worn during spring and summer season. The collection features 6 fragrances so hopefully everyone can find their favorite one, not to mention each fragrance comes in two different bottles (50 ml/ 1.69 fl oz for 30.00 Lei and 10 ml/ 0.33 fl oz for 15.00 Lei) so you can easily take it with you in your purse.

Essence Hazelnut Cream Pie nail polish (€1.59/ 7.00 Lei for 8 ml/ 0.27 fl oz) is a perfect nude a light beige with pink pearl reflexes. It has a light creamy formula and because of it I did noticed some pooling when I applied the first coat. It looks a bit sheer and uneven in one coat but the second coat makes everything come together and brings up that pink pearly finish. I haven’t applied any top coat this time but I usually get for about 3 to 4 days wear with Essence formula. Continue Reading

Essence Redvolution Nail Polish – Review & Swatches

Hello sweeties!

If you are into hot fiery shades when it comes to nail lacquer than take a minute to get acquainted with Essence Redvolution nail polish. Being a drugstore brand Essence products can be found in almost every beauty shop and their nail color line is quite large and changes with every collection. The shade #115 Redvolution is part of Essence Colour & Go nail polish line and it’s one of their permanent shades. I’m not sure the prices in Romania for this line will remain the same, as Essence launches next month new products which will be included in their permanent line and abroad the prices went up a bit.

Essence Redvolution nail polish (€2.99/ 7.00 Lei for 8 ml/ 0.27 fl oz) is a vibrant coraly-red with a very glossy finish. It looks fairly opaque in one coat while the second coat adds more depth and glossiness to the color. The formula was just in between thick or thin and even though the brush could use some improvement (I consider it to be to thick, especially for smaller nails) the application went well without pooling, streaking or bubbling. I considered the polish to be very glossy so I haven’t added any top coat. The color is absolutely gorgeous if you are looking for a medium red with orange warm undertones. Continue Reading
