Review: Essence LE The Beach House + giveaway

Hello!

Summer is here! Well at least when looking at the calendar :)
To get you all summer ready Essence released a new trend edition Essence The beach house. They sent me a big part of this collection to try out.

Essence The beach house Give Me Vitamin Sea! blush (9 grams 3.59€)
When I opened the package I was immediately drawn to this blush. The colors are so flattering, light pink and bright warm pink. This design makes the blush very versatile since you can mix the colors for a more subtle look or go to town with swirling the brush on the bright pink only. It has a hard and sturdy packaging so it should survive trips to the seaside with no problems. The blush is very pigmented but it dusts a little. Application is great, it blends nicely and has a decent staying power.

Essence The beach house core lipstick 01 Beachy keen and 02 A summer kinda girl (2.99€)
The collection also has two lipstick with similar design . Both have a "lipstick in a lipstick" design with base and core color. Based on the promo shots I thought this will be more like lip balms but this are actually decent lipsticks. Both are very moisturizing and nicely pigmented. The lasting power is not the best but they still survive a few hours of wear.
01 Beachy keen has a pink base with coral core. I love this one and I think it looks very flattering on.
02 A Summer Kinda Girl has a peachy base with pink core. It ends up looking like a nice subtle coral.

Essence The beach house Beach Glow Fluid - 01 Girls Just Wanna Have Sun (30 ml 3.79€) 
This will probably be the star of this collection. Beach fluid is meant to give you that "just came from the beach" look. It has a bronze base filled with glitters. Now I wouldn't wear it on my face because it's way to dark for my pale skin but it will look amazing for legs and shoulders. You get a hefty amount of it so it should last you all summer even if you use it on your body

All in all, a nice summertime collection with some great products and the cutest chevron design.
