Essence Trend Edition: Sun Kissed

Hi beauties!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

The other day I was at my local HEB and I spotted at the top of a shelf a Essence display. It was really high and I had to climb a bit to get to it but it was well worth it.


I really enjoy Essence makeup. The prices are really affordable and the quality is quite nice. I saw this and had to buy some of the products.




I don't own a gold nail polish that I like so this was a must have. It is brilliant. It shines like the sun hence the name 03 My Sunny Side. What I love most is the tiny gold shimmer through out this polish. Its not chunky glitter but a nice small fleck. It also goes on nicely without to much streaking. You do however need maybe 3 coats. I know I know 3 coats ugh but it comes out beautiful.

 02 Hello Summer!


Essence says "Summer glow: the semi-transparent sun kissed lipstick guarantees a gorgeous, bright smile. with its gel-like texture, it subtly tints your lips for a natural summery look." These lipsticks are interesting. They do look kind of gel like which is neat. You would think since they look so bright that they would come off bright. But they go on sheer and stain you lips kind of that after eating a popsicle look. The best part is the smell yummy.

This was the product I was most drawn to. Its gorgeous. Its like sunshine in a compact. First off it has a weird smell. I can't put my finger on what it smells like but its not good. Then it has way to much fallout and very huge chunks of glitter.I gently tap my brush in it and powder goes everywhere. I recommend tapping it on to the face so you don't end up looking like a gold disco ball. I already don't tend to use much shimmer or highlight on my face. I have huge pores and shimmer makes them look bigger. So I hate to say it but not my favorite thing of the bunch.I will use for eyeshadow or find some use for it something.

Well I liked most everything so that's a good thing. I hoped y'all enjoyed.

Thank you and until next time!!
