Friday Favorites

Thank God it’s Friday, right? This week hasn’t been as crazy as my last week, but I’m always glad when it’s the weekend. So since it’s Friday I wanted to share two products with you, that I’ve discovered this week. Both products are Essence and I absolutely adore them. I don’t know why but lately I’ve been loving Essence as a brand. Their products are so incredibly affordable but still surprisingly good quality!

Actually I went in my local drugstore to have a look at the cream blushes that are included in their newest winter limited edition but they didn’t have them there. The makeup obsessed girl I am I couldn’t leave with nothing though, so I ended up with a little palette and a lip gloss.

All About Nude in 01 Nude

I have to admit when I spotted this little beauty the first thing that came to my mind was, that it didn’t really look like your typical nude palette, yet the name is all about nude. This palette doesn’t contain any beige, light brown or basically none of your typical nude shades that you would expect to be in a nude eyeshadow palette. It does contain a really light shimmery highlighting shade, two light pinks, a light greyish silver shade, a dark brown and a plum shade. All the shades are gorgeous and allow you to create a lovely neutral look. I really like the light pink shades in combination with the plum and silver greyish shade.

These eyeshadows don’t have the best pigmentation but they are pigmented quite well and I love how shimmery they are. I just think this is a perfect little palette for the holiday season and it’s definitely quite refreshing compared to your typical nude palettes.

XXXL Longlasting Lipgloss in 06 Soft Nude

I’ve included a lip gloss from the same range but in the shade 05 Velvet Rose in a favorites post earlier this month ad now I’ve finally bought the nude one, which I’ve been wanting to try ever since I tried the Velvet Rose. I love the formula of these lip glosses. They are not sticky at all and feel so moisturizing. But the best thing by far is that they have a matte effect. Basically they are more like a lip cream stain. The lasting power could be a little bit longer but you can’t really complain for the price. The shade is a gorgeous nude which is more not he darker side. I love how it adds a bit of volume to my lips and I’m definitely glad I bought it in this color as well. Who knows? I might add the peach and the red one to my little collection as well.
