Review & Swatch: Essence Cinderella TE

Hello!


It's been a week since my last post, I apologize!
This weekend I wanted to spoil myself a bit (because it's been a stressful month for me) and I found an intact Essence Cinderella collection in our DM.



I wasn't really intrigued by it, because well.. it looks a bit "meh". Nothing clicked, but I really wanted to buy something so I got myself a blush and three nail polishes from the line.





The first nail polish is called Sweet, Night gale and is a gorgeous light pink creme. It dries in a satin finish and I was a bit shocked by it at first, (in a good way) and decided that I love the look, a bit later. 
The application was nice, nothing shocking or bad to say here. I used two layers of polish to get an even finish.  On the ring finger I am wearing The glass slipper over a light gray holo from Essence.

Satin finish:

And with a glossy top coat:



The blush is lovely. I don't own any blush packed in a cardboard box, but this one looks really nice. 
I picked it because I liked the color and it looked like something I'd use in my daily makeup. 



Left swatch: 3x applied blush on the same spot 
Right swatch: once applied blush

As you can see the blush is very natural looking, because it goes off as a light coral color. I like that it's buildable and looks very nicely when applied on the skin with a brush. 

Applied on skin. Keep in mind that the camera "eats up" some color. I like to wear quite some blush. Alas, it looks natural on me. 

Staying power is fine, lasts all day on me. No touch up needed! 

The second nail polish I picked is called Bibidi Bobidi Boo. Whenever I hear its name I can't stop singing it in my head... Which is annoying, because I don't even like that song. 

This polish is of a nice light purple color, but looks blue or gray, depending on the light. I saw that under artificial light it goes gray and  natural light it goes purple or blue. 


See? Looks purple (the original color). It also has a satin finish, but I do prefer it with a gloss polish over it. 


With a gloss top coat. 



I didn't take separate pictures of The Glass slipper, because even if it is beautiful on its own, I wouldn't wear it as an alone manicure (this I incorporated it in the above manicures). It also reminds me of another Essence nail polish called Icy Fairy 21. I will compare the two in another post. 

Do you have anything from this line? Or would you?

  1. Mene nekak ta kolekcija ni pritegnila, tako da nisem kupila ničesar. :)
    Ampak zdaj ko gledam tvoje swatche, sta mi zeloo všeč prvi lakec in blush. <3 Oh, ne vem, kako da me LE kolekcije velikokrat ne pritegnejo, ko pa gledam swatche po blogih, pa bi pol stvari pokupila. :P Sicer pa boljše za mene, itak ničesar ne rabim. :D

    1. Sandra, te čisto razumem. Mene tudi sploh ni pritegnila, ampak ker sem si rekla, da nekaj BOM kupila, tudi sem. Pa mi ni žal, niti malo.
      :P
      Pinki lakec je fantastičen, meni je definitivno zelo zelo všeč. Je takoj pristal med moje top lakce za to pomlad in poletje.

  2. Zelo so mi všeč laki, ampak jih RES ne potrebujem. Mislim, da imam vsaj 10 še nikoli uporabljenih lakov doma. Roza lak z glossy nadlakom izgleda precej podoben fiji-ju od Essie. <3 Bi pa z veseljem imela kakšen nov blush, vendar mi ni všeč embalaža (vem, edina sem! :D).

    1. Hehe, sej poznam to. :D
      RES ne potrebujem ničesar več.. :P

      Btw, bom pogledala in naredila primerjavo med Essie Fiji in tem pinki. Ampak tako na pamet, ti povem, da se ta pinki veliko lepše in lažje maže kot Fiji (Fiji pri meni rabi 3 plasti, da je čisto even, pa malo bolj gost je od tega), in ta je bolj pink kot Essie. No, bom poslikala in dam gor.
