I'm so behind with my posts and comments but I decided that I'd write something today. Thanks for your lovely comments on my previous post. Next day I shorten my nails, like I said my thumb's broken so the difference was too obvious and I'm so allergic to different lenghts, okay thumbs can go through but if my ring finger is broken... No way! xo
So as I already said Essence has gone crazy with Trend editions this summer. Ballerina Backtage and Nails in style is alread sold out everywhere but recently 50's Girl Reloaded hit our DM. :) So I actually wasn't planning to buy anything but when I saw how everyone's loving their lipsticks I had to get mine. I wanted a nice red polish too so I bought that one, you can't miss with that price at all. :$
Here's what I got:
Nail polish - Back to the 50's
Lipsticks - 02 I’m Sailing and 01 Back to the 50’s
Let's start with a nail polish. It contains 15 ml of polish! :e In case you don't know, Essence bottles are usually smaller, Multi Dimension polishes contains just 8 ml. So you got lots of polish for a nice price. One polish costs 1,89 €. Back to the 50's is a creme red, very opaque. First I used it for my pedi, the brush was perfect, I think I never painted my toes so perfectly, almost without clean up. :D Then I moved on my mani and the brush just didn't work on my hand as on toes. Maybe's just me but my nails was a mess before clean up. :$ Like I said it's very opaque, you can get away with one thicker coat especially if your nails are short, but I added 2 to hide VNL but it's still there, on picture even more visible as in person.
Swatches of lipstick after a click. :)
Seriosly, taking swatches of anything else than my nails is so hard. :L I'd never be MU blogger, that's for sure. :D But from time to time I can try something, maybe I'll get better once. :D Btw my lips are always so dry so please excuse me that. :D
Back to the 50's is a nice creme red lipsticks, very creamy, nicely pigmented and it doesn't dry my lips. I'm sailing is a peachy orange creme lipstick. It's very natural on me, so I'm using it for everyday. I still don't know when I'll be wearing the red one, because I never had red lips in public. But it's better to have it in my collection, right? Lipstick costs 2,19 € so you can't go wrong with them too. :)
I read that the packaching is very similar to MAC, I can't compare them because I don't own anything from MAC. :D
