Merry Berry collection by Essence
Essence released a new limited edition collection for the holidays, calles 'Merry Berry'.
In this collection there are several items, a gold dust spray, eyeshadow, highlighter, lipsticks,...
But I will only be showing you the highlighter and the lipsticks.
These items are the only ones that really caught my eye.
How gorgeous is this highlighter?
I like the star pattern in it, it gives me a 'holiday season mood' :)
And then we have these lipsticks.
The lipsticks in the Merry Berry collection comes in three different colors.
Normally the lipsticks should have a matte finish, but when I used them they were still a little bit shiny for me.
Allthough that these lipsticks aren't matte, I like them a lot.
I love the fact that they are shiny, but not too shiny :)
Let's take a look at the swatches from the highlighting powder and these lipsticks.
Here you can see some swatches I made on my arm.
Off course everything looks different when you use it on you lips or face.
That's why I also made lipswatches and a cheek-swatch for you guys.
Wow, this highlighter will definitely be one of my favourite highlighting powders.
It gives such a nice glow on your skin, but not too shiny (I don't want to look like a disco ball)
The lipsticks are okay, but not great.
The pigmentation of these lipsticks dissapointed me a little.
I had to apply 3 layers before the color was as shown on the package.
My favourite color is 1 - let's the berry-tales begin (which reminded me of the Hunger Games :D)
The difference between color 02 and 03 is not so noticeable.
'02 pink & perfect' has more of a coral finish.
Color '03 red rocks' (as the name says allready) has a redish finish.
I do like this collection and I will definitely buy some more of these highligting powders because I am in love with it :D
Merry Berry highlighting powder - € 3,39
Merry berry lipsticks - € 2,39
