Essence Winter? Wonderful! All Ice on Me palette

From December 1st, you can get the items from the Essence Winter? Wonderful! Collection
The Limited Trend Edition will be in stores from December 2015 to January 2016. 

I got the palette and the lip oil from this collection, but today I'll be focusing on the palette. 

This the official description:
baby, it’s cold outside! with the new trend edition “winter? wonderful!”, essence is warming your hearts and transforms the cold time of the year to a beauty season. and that's for sure: even the biggest opponents of low temperatures will find lots of winter stars!

frosty winter colours like white, blue and ice-grey meet upon warm nude tones like pink and light apricot, which unite to create a gorgeous colour scheme. the cool winter pieces include the four nail polishes with various effects such as “frosted” or “crystallized” as well as the lip oil with a subtle colour dispersion in light or intensive pink. the limited hand balm pampers dry hands and the mini pocket heat pack in the shape of an ice crystal makes sure that they stay nice and warm.

welcome to winter wonderland…

The palette comes in a quite nicely designed packaging. The snowflakes and the font are reflective (and thus hard to photograph) and look really nicely in person. 

The palette contains 5 eyeshadows that at first I was quite doubtful about them.

The description goes:
cold meets hot! the eyeshadow palette in the five colours white, grey, pink and a light, as well as a dark brown with shimmering and matt effects, lets you create lots of different styles. lovingly decorated with snowflakes and ice crystals, the packaging is an eye-catcher, too.

I didn't like the combination of colors and thought they would be too harsh together. But after I swatched them I realized one thing. These colors are all very wearable. The light pink is a perfect nude base, the silver is great for light highlights, but the only downer is the light brown, that mostly comes off as gold/brown shimmer. I tried applying it wet, but I couldn't get much color payoff. It's a very gentle brown with gold micro shimmer and I had very high expectation for it. 

On the arm swatch, it swatched really nicely, so it's probably just a combination with my brush?
All the eyeshadows are buttery and soft. 

I did my makeup as regularly with this palette. This means, nude eyeshadow all over the lid, dark shadow in the crease, blended. Shimmery shadow on the center of the lid. Add eyeliner and mascara. 
This time my eyeliner isn't all that great looking, sorry! The result? Something very wearable, practically a nude palette

I wore this look for the whole day and had no problems with creasing or anything similar. 

And the last picture, even if you can't see my makeup - yay hooded eyelids, but people seem to enjoy such pictures ;D.

Will you get anything from this collection?
