A couple of months ago I had the pleasure to be informed by Olia that I was the winner of her august giveaway. I enjoyed it so much because the gift was not only one, but a whole package of various cosmetics.
Opening the gifts was like opening Santa Claus’ bag as Olia had wrapped every little thing separately.
I couldn’t wait to use them all, but the truth is that it took me some time as a few days later I gave birth and then my time was so limited. But I promised to try them and share my opinion , so here I am. I have also written a review on Olia’s blog here.
The first thing I tried was the essence match 2 cover concealer. Very soft texture and enough coverage, I will definitely use it a lot. The lightest shade suits me for the area around the eyes and the darker one to cover imperfections on the rest of the face.
I was also anxious to use the essence my skin tinted moisturizer, but unfortunately I haven’t found yet a moisturizer with color that gives me the coverage I need. Of course something that doesn’t work for us can be exactly what another girl needs, so I gave it to my sister who needs little coverage. And I owed her a gift because she had been a model on a blog post!
During my pregnancy I didn’t paint my nails , so I was eager to use the nail polishes that I won . Both shades sweet as candy and waka-waka are two of my favorite colors for nails. I launched the pink shade with the fuchsia nail polish from essence tribal summer tip painter set 01 aztecs ceremony to do a quick manicure for you. In the future I will experiment with all the colors and I will try to create more designs.
They are easy to apply and only one layer pass was enough. As for the duration, no nail polish lasts on my nails with all the housework I do everyday. Maybe it lasts more with a second layer.
In the picture you can also see the essence tribal summer oil control paper which I haven’t tried yet. It sounds very useful and I think I’ll carry it in my bag in summer.
Another lip product is the essence gel tint 03 flashy apricot. At first I used it without a lipstick underneath. I put on a little amount for a natural look (it was the day with no make up that I also wore the mascara!) And I really liked the result. Although shades with orange tones are not my favorite, I liked the intensity it gave to my lips.
