Hello my dears! How is your week so far?
I've spotted the Home Sweet Home collection from Essence a the very end of October, and wasn't very much intrigued by it. The lippies and the clear lipgloss weren't calling my name, and the eyeshadows looked too warm for me. But I think that was the idea, a warm and cosy collection, like being at home. However, I can hardly say no to a nice blush, and even less to nail polish! I'll show you the swatches in a separate post very soon! You can check the whole collection here.

Into my picks:
Blush in Knit for chicks

Blush in Knit for chicks

Left: two shades blended, center lighter shade, right darker shade
The blushes of this collection have two shades in one, and I appreciate a lot blushes like this, because you get more versatility for varing your looks. The one I pick is called 01 Knit for chicks, and is a light rather cold shade of pink combined to a dark mauvey pink. I really like dark blush colours for blushing, for a more dramatic look. They just have to be the right shade. In this case I think this shade plays well with my skin.

Nail fashion sticker in Neither Swedish Nor-wegian

I was curious to try some "gel like" nail stickers and I thought these were a good option to start, because they're not very expensive. These are named 01 Neither Swedish Nor-wegian and are supposed to reproduce a classical Scandinavian knitted pattern. Well, I'll tell you, but you can see for yourselves, these stickers are meant for rather short nails, plus they aren't very wide either. I have really small nails and these won't cover the whole width of them. And that's why they're inexpensive.
I find useful the fact that these come with instructions, though.

And last but not least, I had to pick the cute knitted pouch!! That also has a name and is 01 Knitted with love. Isn't that cute?

What do you think about this collection? Any particular item you've picked already? Any favourites?
I'm now very impatient to swatch the polishes I've picked, so stay tuned for the rest!
