Essence The Little X-Mas Factory Holiday 2016 Collection

Hello beauties!

Essence The Little X-Mas Factory Collection arrived in my inbox right now and even though I’m still longing for summer, I kind of got a bit into the Christmas mood only by looking at this. It surely looks joyful and cute this new Essence Holiday 2016 Collection, not because there are tones of products but because they are the right ones with that festive holiday packaging. It’s such a shame the collection won’t be coming to Romania as well as I would have checked a few things from my wishlist like that rosy lip balm, the new fragrance, adorable shimmering stars and scented hair brush. How about you?


Dear Santa! essence has received all Christmas wish lists and Santa’s hardworking elves are doing everything in their power to prepare the perfect surprise. The result: the new trend edition “the little x-mas factory”, to make all your beauty dreams come true. Classical colors like gold or pine green are combined with cool pink. The absolute X-MUSTS are the eyeshadow palette, two mini hand creams with Christmassy fragrances and the “shimmering stars”. Season’s greetings from essence!
