Essence swatches

9:26 PM colorfulbottle 25 Comments

Today I'll show you some Essence swatches.
I recently bought 3 polishes from their regular line in shades: Cookie Love, Oh, My Glitter! and Gorgeous Bling Bling. These 3 were the ones that I thought are the most attractive, but later I changed my mind about one.

You probably all know about their new bottles and brushes, but here is my opinion:

Firstly I didn't like their bottles, but now I'm really in love with them, and I also think that the brush is really great. It makes application really easy. The only problem I had with this polishes is that Oh, My Glitter! and Cookie Love chipped in less than a day on my nails. I'm not sure if it is the formula, or maybe the brush. Yes, the brush! Although it is perfect for application, you can easily have too much polish on the brush, and we all know what happens with thick coats of polish-it chips easily. Their formula is super shiny and they dry fast so I don't have any complaints about that. I must try applying really thin coats next time to see if this will do the trick.  I will definitely buy some more shades in the future!
Here is the brush picture:
Now on to the swatches:



I really suck at describing colours so it is probably the best for all of us that I skip this part =)
The first one is Cookie Love. I really liked it on other girls swatches, but IRL it kinda disappointed me. It just didn't go well with my skin tone, so this one will probably have to find another owner. I still love the colour, just not on me.

This picture was taken in shade

and this one in the sun

The second is Oh, My Glitter! I love this one! 
 I wasn't able to catch it's beautiful shimmer/glitter, it looks a lot more awesome IRL
I used 2 thicker coats
Direct sun

and shade


The last is Gorgeous Bling Bling

For this one I thought I'm really gonna hate it, because it looks a bit dirty and I don't like dirty colours. I bought it because I don't have anything like that in my stash and because I saw how good it looks on other girls swatches. And when I applied it I fell in love. I'm not sure what is it that makes it so special, but I really love it. I already know it will be my favourite this fall.
I applied 2 coats 
 shade( on a cloudy day)

Under daylight light bulb. Really crappy quality, but I really couldn't do any better.


What do you think about them? 
Which one is your favourite?
Which shades did you buy?

  2. Prvi me ni prepričal. Potem sem ponosna lastnica drugega, a ga še nisem uspela preiskusit. Tretji pa me tudi ne prepriča.

    Imajo pa res zelo širok barvni izbor teh lakov. Eni so čisto nekaj posebnega medtem, ko so drugi barvno čist mimo. No vsaj meni

    1. Mateja, prav imaš, nekateri so res čist čudni odtenki. Meni je taprvi bil pa res všeč, ampak na nohtih izgleda ogabno. Me je pa tazadnji res pozitivno prepričal =). Mogoče bi tudi tebe prepričal, če bi ga nalakirala =)
      Zaenkrat imam že enega modrega nagledanega, ampak sem danes ravno dobila svoje nakupe iz ličil in zapikenai, in imam zaj res celi mesec dieto =)

    1. I really have to try them with thinner coats, in I succeed I'll let you know =). I would be really sad it it's the formula, because Essence is one of my favourite brands =)

    1. Biba, sem ravno včeraj hodila po DM-u in ugotovila, da tam nimajo vseh odtenkov, tako da bo za kakšen odtenek treba tudi v Mullerja ( lahko pa tudi meni naročiš )

    1. Stradivorsky, meni je prvi tudi zelo všeč, ampak nekako ne paše na moje roke. Sem res imela občutek kot da imam umazane roke =)
