Hello my lovelies! How are you doing today? Today I have for you my very last haul before the NBB begun. I got some items from the latest Essence LE collection Oz the Great and Powerful. Many cosmetics brands have jump on board of the hype this film arouses, and though I'm not much interested in it, I can hardly say no to cheap makeup, lol!
Here are my picks: (you can click on every picture to enlarge it)
A cream blush in 01 Beware the wicked witch:
Two eye pencil in 01 Fragile but feisty (top), and 02 China girl (bottom), and a gold nail polish in 03 Good witch, which only later I realized it was a cracking topcoat!! (why essence, why??)
So here are the swatches:
From left to right: 01 Goodness, 03 Generosity, 02 China girl, 01 Fragile but feisty.
WARNING: it stains!! I'm so glad I tried it first on my arm. You need to be very careful while applying this blush, only a very tiny little bit will do the trick, and it will instantly stain your skin so my advice is to apply it rigth from the start without hesitations!
For this eye look I used the following:
- Urban decay eyeshadow primer potion
- Essence eyeshadow in 03 Generosity on the crease
- Essence eyeshadow in 01 Goodness over the moving eyelid
- NYX a matte vanilla shade from the Naked butt palette on browbone and inner corner
- Essence eye pencil in 01 Fragile but feisty on 1/3 of the lash line
- Nyx Doll eye Mascara Volume
- Sigma brushes E60, E55, E70, E40
The Essence eyeshadows are nicely pigmented, and have almost zero fallout, which is GOOD! The eye pencils are amazing, soft and pigmented, just as any of the high end brand, and they last really well considering they're not waterproof.
Have you picked any items of the Essence Wizard of OZ Collection? Will you? Anything here that awakes your interest? Let me know your thoughts!!
