Last week I did a small haul from the new Essence Cherry Blossom Girl collection, and I wanted to do a seperate post about them. I was waiting for a whole month to release the collection, I was so happy that I found a full display at my Hondos store, because most of the times half of the stuff are sold out!
Blush in 01 Asian Sensation
It's a duo blush, the one half is a gorgeous matte coral-peachy shade, highly pigmented. The other half is a very light apricot shade. As you can see from the swatch pic below , it's not pigmented at all, it looks like a highlighter but it doesn't have enough shimmers to give any glow, it mostly works like a a very light shade to mix with the coral one to tone it down.
from left to right: arpricot shade, coral shade, both shades mixed together
Quattro Eyeshadow in 01 Dreaming Under a Cherry Tree
This is a very pretty quad, it contains a very light apricot shade that it's very good for the inner part of the eyes to brighten them. A coral peachy shade so pretty for all over the lids. A highlighter with grey undertones, but on my lids the grey it's not visible at all, it worked really good as a brow highlighter, and lastly a taupe one. They all have good pigmentation, maybe except the light apricot one, it didn't work as an all over the lids shade. I don't like to use all of them for one look because the taupe one didn't match well with the peachy coral ones, but individually they work pretty good!
Lipstick Pencil in 02 It's Peach Not Cherry
I really really really wanted to like this product, it was actually the one product that I wanted the most from this collection, mostly because of its pretty peachy shade, but it dissapointed me! It'a a matte lipstick in a pencil form, very smooth but it has shimmers and lots of them, they stick on the dry parts of my lips and that makes me look like a sick person, this is a reason why I hate frost lipsticks! I may find a way to make it work, maybe on top of other lipsticks, but overall I'm dissapointed!
Nail Polish in 04 It's Peach Not Cherry
This is the product that I love the most from all the things that I've purchased! The color and the texture are wonderful! It's a medium peach shade with creme texture, no shimmers at all, it applies very good on the nails! What more can I say, the perfect peach shade for the nails. It may not be a fall shade but it's a gorgeous shade for spring and summer! Go and get it!
