In November, essence and Catrice are releasing several of their limited editions which I’m pretty excited about. My problem with new releases is the same every single time. I realise they are in drugstores days after the best products are already sold out! Not this time, because I got the opportunity to try out four products from collections Glitter in the air and Victorian Poetry.
The main shades in the Essence Glitter in the air llimited edition are rose, green and plum with a metallic and glittery touch. This makes them perfect for all kinds of events we will be attending in December.
There are so many products to choose from! You can create an entire New Year’s Eve look with gorgeous metallic eye shadows, two diamond-shaped lip sticks as well as a blush and shimmer drops to round up your festive look. Essence did not forget about your nails, there are a grey and a rose as well as two glittery shades available in their nail polish limited edition. One product I would be eager to try out is the ultra strong nail polish remover, glittery manicure will surely be much easier to remove when time comes considering how difficult it is to take it off!
On the other hand, the make up items in the Catrice Victorian Poetry limited edition are pretty extravagant and subtle. Colors vary from apricot, nude and grey to berry and the eye palette is much more captivating as it offers all of them! You can top your perfect eye look with a gorgeous grey matt powder liner AristoMATTic. If you’re a highlighting fan as myself, you should try out the highlighting pebbles Queen Victoria Is Amused. For a pop of color you can apply an always-trendy deep red lipstick, such as Berry British.
What about the products I’ve tried so far?
As I already mentioned, I got the opportunity to try out two products from the Glitter in the air collection by essence. The first item is the strobing blush and highlighter powder When in doubt, add glitter. This gorgeous lilac blush, or a blush topper even, will give you a soft flush of color and you don’t even have to add any highlighter to it, isn’t this great! I also received the eyebrow pomade pen in shade make your brow wow. I think this is such a versatile shade, it fits my brows very well. The thing is, you don’t have to be that precise with the pen as you can easily brush through and set everything in place.
The first item from the Catrice Victorian Poetry limited edition are the highlighting pebbles Queen Victoria is amused. They consist of rose and creamy pebbles which form a pretty rose glow. I also received a lip stick in shade Berry British which I adore! At first, it seemed to be a usual burgundy red, but then I realised it has a lot of brown undertones. It looks amazing and perfect for this time of year. However, it does look uneven after an hour or two, so I have to monitor the situation all the time – but I’m willing to do that for gorgeous lips!
All in all, both Glitter in the air as well as Victorian Poetry offer a wide range of products. I’m pretty sure everyone can find a few items to suit their needs and these four products will nicely fit into my current make up routine. Personally, I would love to give the grey matt powder liner a go and I’ll purchase it if I manage to find one at the drugstore. What about you, which products do would you like to try out?
