Essence Hello Happiness!

essence hello happiness

I know, I know – I’ve been posting so much about Essence lately that I really should just go and sleep in one of their stands, right? Well, the thing is that they’ve come out with so many new cool things I’m excited about that I really want to share them with you. So – I promise this Hello Happiness introduction is the last Essence post for September, but I think it’s worth reading.

Ja, saj vem – o Essence zadnje čase pišem toliko, da bi si lahko posteljo organizirala kar na kakšnem od njihovih stojal. Resnici na ljubo tudi sama raje pišem o več različnih znamkah, vendar pa je Essence zadnje čase res na trg poslal toliko novih dobrot, da jih enostavno moram deliti tudi s tabo. Obljubim, da je to zadnji Essence post za september, vendar mislim, da je vreden tvojih treh minut.

As most beauty bloggers, I’m an avid brush collector. I own brushes that cost 20 € per piece and I own brushes that cost 1 € per piece. I have stupidly expensive brushes that aren’t good at all and I have inexpensive brushes that are great. Hopefully, I’ll find some like that in the new Essence Hello Happiness line (LE) that’s coming to drugstores in about two weeks time.

Kot večina lepotnih blogerk sem tudi jaz navdušena zbiralka čopičev. V moji kolekciji najdeš čopiče za 20 €, pa tudi čopiče za 1 €. Imam grozljivo drage čopiče, ki nikakor niso vredni svojega denarja, pa tudi izredno poceni čopiče, ki so naravnost čudoviti. Upam, da bom še nekaj takšnih iz zadnje kategorije dodala iz nove Essence Hello Happiness linije, ki na police prihaja čez približno dva tedna.

What is Hello Happiness? ***** Kaj je Hello Happiness?

Hello Happiness is a line of seven different brushes with synthetic bristles and some fun additional products to make your life a bit easier. The prices range from about 1,5 € for a lip brush to 4,5 € for a short kabuki. They should be available in your local drugstores from 20.9. onward.

Hello Happiness je linija sedmih različnih sintetičnih čopičev in nekaj zabavnih dodatkov, ki ti bodo čiščenje in prenašanje čopičev olajšali. Cene se gibljejo med 1,5 € za čopič za ustnice do 4,5 € za kratek kabuki čopič. Kolekcija bo na voljo v drogerijah DM, Muller, na Ličila.si, na Click2Chic in v Mercatorjevih hipermarketih od 20.9. dalje.

What kind of brushes can I get? ***** Kakšni čopiči se skrivajo v kolekciji?

Pretty ones. No, for real. Essence Hello happiness brushes all have a soft pastel design that looks absolutely adorable. In the collection, you can find (left to right): a lip brush (1,59€) and a duo eyeshadow brush (2,79€) which is flat at one end and rounded at the other. Honestly, the latter is probably the one I’ll skip because I don’t have a good way to store dual-ended brushes and they always get damaged. Next, we have a corrector sponge (2,49 €) which I’ll definitely get because I don’t have a sponge brush yet and I’m curious as to how it performs. There are also a blush brush (3,59€), strobing brush for highlighter (3,59€) and a contouring brush with longer bristles (3,59€). The pièce de résistance of the line in my opinion is the flat powder kabuki brush (4,39€). If it’s as dense as it looks in the photos, it’ll be perfect to apply liquid foundation or really pack in translucent powder under the eyes!

Lepi, lepi čopiči. Ne hecam se. Vsi čopiči Essence Hello Happiness so oblečeni v pastelne barve in imajo lep dizajn. V kolekciji se skrivajo (z leve proti desni): čopič za ustnice (1,59 €) in dvojni čopič za oči (2,79), ki je na enem koncu ploščad, na drugem pa zaobljen. Tega bom sama gotovo izpustila, saj nimam dobrega načina za shranjevanje dvostranskih čopičev in jih prehitro uničim. Nato v kolekciji najdemo gobico za korektor (2,49 €), ki mi deluje res zanimivo, saj česa takšnega še nisem preizkusila. Sledijo čopič za rdečilo, strobing čopič ter čopič za konturo (vsak 3,59 €). Pièce de résistance celotne kolekcije je po mojem mnenju ploščat kabuki čopič (4,39€). Če je tako gost, kot izgleda na fotografijah, bo perfekten za nanos tekoče podlage ali za nanos brezbarvnega pudra v prahu pod očmi!

Anything else? **** Morda še kaj?

hello happiness essence brush rollWell, yes. I’m a big, big fan of the Freedom Brush Bath (read about it *here*) but I’ll naturally try the Essence brush cleansing soap (2,79€) as a cheaper alternative to see how they compare. I’m also quite tempted by the brush roll with seven spaces for larger and smaller brushes (3,29 €). For those who don’t own anything like this, I think it’s a great option. I also love the design which is perfect for traveling!

No, morda pa res. Kot verjetno veš, sem zaprisežena uporabnica Freedom Brush bath (o njem lahko prebereš več *tu*), seveda pa bom preizkusila tudi Essence milo za čopiče (2,79 €), saj bi lahko bilo dobra in cenejša alternativa moji dosedanji ljubezni. Mika me tudi torbica za čopiče, ki ima sedem različnih prostorčkov za manjše in večje čopiče (3,29€). Glede na ceno je to super izbira, če svoje čopiče na potovanja še vedno nosiš kar v navadni torbici. Zelo všeč mi je tudi dizajn, ki me asociira na potovanja.

I won’t be buying all of these Essence Hello Happiness brushes since I really don’t need them, but I’ll probably get two or three – most likely the corrector sponge, blush brush and flat kabuki. I just hope I make it to the stand in time – these limited editions seem to just fly off the shelves, don’t you agree? Which one out of the bunch is your favorite? Until next time, stay beautiful!

Verjetno vseh čopičev iz Essence Hello Happiness linije ne bom kupila, saj jih resnično ne potrebujem, dva ali tri pa si bom vsekakor privoščila – najverjetneje gobico za korektor, čopič za rdečilo ter kabuki za čopič. Upam le, da bom tokrat do trgovine prišla pravočasno, saj običajno takšne kolekcije kar zletijo s polic. Kateri pa je tvoj favorit? Do naslednjič, ostani čudovita!
