Essence Lights of Orient TE: review and swatches

16:31

Hello!

Some Essence collections leave me cold but this one made me feel like I'm under the hot oriental sun :) It has been a while since Essence released such an eye catching and beautiful collection. From the packaging design to color scheme there's not a thing I don't like. Since I'm trying to minimize my shopping I decided not to buy the entire collection and narrowed my wishes down to three products.



Essence Lights of Orient Princess Jasmines choice blush 
Essence Lights of Orient Princess Jasmines choice blush (7 g; 3,59 €) was the first thing on my wishlist. I have been into darker, dustier shades lately and Princes Jasmines choice is just that. Combination of rosewood and mauve give a nice flush of color and you can easily skip bronzer. It has tiny shimmers in it so it doesn't look completely flat on your face. The blush has a decent pigmentation and is very finely milled. Definitely worth checking out!




Essence Lights of Orient Princess Jasmines choice matte lipstick 
Essence Lights of Orient Princess Jasmines choice matte lipstick (1,9 g; 2,79 €) was a bit of a random pick (my boyfriend bought the items and Essence promo photos sometimes look off) but I'm so happy I got it. It comes in a slim-slick shape like some Catrice lipsticks do. The color is an interesting mix of purple, brown and red. The formula is matte and will show all the dry patches you might have on your lips however I don't find it drying to my lips. The durability is ok, it survives drinking but if you eat something greasy, it starts fading on the inner edge. 


Swatches top to bottom: rosewood part of blush, mauve part of blush, both shades mixed together and the lipstick.



Essence Lights of Orient Genie in a bottle body splash 
Essence Lights of Orient Genie in a bottle body splash (100 ml; 3,29 €) will be perfect for summer. Official description says it has a floral scent but on me I smells sweet and spicy. It contains tiny gold shimmers that settle on the bottle so you have to shake it before you use it. I wish the mist was a bit finer but then the glitters probably wouldn't disperse nicely. The scent is not overpowering so feel free to spritz away :)

  1. Sem prvič malo preveč veselo čopič zaokrožila po blushu in je bilo pravi baaam na licih haha :D Me je pa čisto presenetil, ker je zdržal 13ur na licih, ko sem delala, in je čisto malo zbledel. Big thumbs up :D

  2. Vsekakor ena lepših Essence kolekcij. Jaz sem tudi morala kupit in sicer bronzer, body splash, zlat lak in barvico za veke. Body Splash je čisto moj tip vonja, samo res škoda, da ni bolj obstojen. Essence mora naredit parfum s tem vonjem :).

    1. Vidiš, meni pa ravno highlighter ni potegnil. Včasih je dobro, da moramo malo počakati na kolekcije, da se začetno navdušenje malo poleže :)
