Essence bootiful nights all products

Essence Bootiful nights is a collection that’s quite different from anything I’ve ever spotted on Essence stands. It’s all about halloween and this year, more dramatic than ever. There are quite a few products in this trend edition that’s coming to Muller on 4/10. Here are my favorites.

Essence bootiful nights nail polish

There are three different nail polishes in the Essence Bootiful nights collection that sport a lovely witches hat – quite different, don’t you think? Shades are: black (I witch you were here), white (let’s go boo-gy-woogy) an violet (Dawn of the red).

Essence bootiful nights glow in the dark top coat

If you want to be extra, I’d suggest this Glow in dark top coat (2,19€) in the shade of a pumpkin. It’s appropriately called Witch of the nightIt will make your nails pop, especially if you’re going to some halloween parties with LED lighting!

Essence bootiful nights liquid lipstick

I think that both these liquid matte lipsticks (2,79 €) could be worn throughout fall and winter months – if you’re brave enough. They promise to be longlasting and really dry down matte. The shades above are Where did I park my broom (left) and You make my heart go boo (right). View Full Post

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?

hello happiness essence brushes

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!

My my, how the tables have turned. I remember how I was lusting after Tarte and Too Faced products years ago, over excited by everything I was being told online by Youtube celebrities. Now, I’ve learned to look closer to home for good products. More often than not, I find them in the Catrice and Essence stands. This makes me super happy and my wallet as well. Let’s take a look at some Essence products that I’m most excited about – and stay tuned for the Catrice launches tomorrow!

Kako hitro se je vse spremenilo. Leta nazaj sem gledala Youtube in nisem želela ničesar drugega, kot Tarte in Too Faced izdelke. Zdaj sem se naučila, da se kakovost pogosto skriva veliko bližje domu in je bolj prijazna moji denarnici. Izdelki Essence predstavljajo velik del moje zbirke (in že zdaj vem, da bosta dva njihova izdelka med mojimi favoriti leta 2017), ker so enostavno in cenovno dostopni. Danes ti prestavljam izdelke, ki so me v prenovi najbolj navdušili, jutri pa sledi še moja lista želja za Catrice novosti.

WISHLIST: EYES/OČI

Most of these are hitting the stands in our stores as we speak. Some of you already got your hands on them, but quite a few readers have been asking for my wishlist to see what they should get. I say – experiment. The products are really inexpensive so the gamble is low. But here is my wish list anyway.

Večina teh izdelkov je že na policah v drogerijah in vem, da si jih morda že nekaj tudi kupila. Še vedno pa me dosti bralk opominja, da čakajo moj seznam želja, preden se odpravijo po nakupih. Svetovala bi ti, da kdaj tudi eksperimentiraš – sploh zato, ker je vložek dokaj nizek. Ampak kljub temu je tu moj seznam.

essence moonlight eyes

I definitely need some of the cream eyeshadows Moonlight eyes (4 shades, 3,29€). These look like a much less expensive version of the Color Tattoos and I love those but the fact is they dry out fast and are not really inexpensive. I use them all over the lid and then just build the crease – my eye look is done in a minute. The lightest shade can also be used as a base for more vibrant colors.

Vsekakor bom kupila nekaj kremnih senčil Moonlight eyes (4 odtenki, 3,29€). Delujejo podobni kot Maybelline Color Tattoo, ki jih imam zelo rada, vendar se mi hitro izsušijo in niso najbolj poceni. Nanesem jih preko cele veke, v pregibu uporabim nekoliko temnejšo senčilo in to je to  – lep make-up v manj kot minuti!

Essence mascara

There are new mascaras hitting the stores – I’ve had some good experience with Essence in that department lately so I’ll definitely be getting the #lashes of the day volume mascara (2,79€) and the Instant volume boost mascara (3,29€). For that price, I can afford to test both and I’ll definitely report back!

Na police prihajajo tudi nove maskare in zadnje čase imam na tem področju pri Essence srečno roko. Preizkusila bom #lashes of the day volume maskaro (2,79€) in Instant volume boost maskaro (3,29€) ter poročala, ali je bil volumen takšen, kot sem ga pričakovala. View Full Post
